Board gaming expenditure 2021


Recommended Posts

Big fan here of Thousand Year Old Vampire.

 

I really need to get back to my 19th century aspiring artist turned Vampire, who was chased from Vienna to Budapest and eventually on to Russia (due to being reckless when feeding and a tide of revolution).

 

He's so addled by the passage of time that he no longer remembers why he has hideously deformed hands (it's the cruel result of his curse which robbed him being able to accurately hold anything, and so he could no longer paint). Nor does he remember why he is host to thousands of burrowing worm parasites that regularly leave through the open, weeping holes in his hands to feed on anything living near by :omg:

Well i spoke to soon it appears (saying there was no new games I wanted/needed any time soon), I've wanted Le Havre for a while as my love for Uwes games keeps growing and I have a wants list on my phone of which its been top for a while but it looks like its come back in stock in a "Complete Edition" and it seems a really good price (£41 quid from gameslore), I know its not a pretty game but hearing Tom Vasel constantly rating it so highly its one i always wanted to try so bit the bullet. I also loved Honey Buzz that I picked up last month so ordered the Honey Pot mini expansion ($18 delivered) and I've also become a Stonemaier Champion so gave them $15 for a year sub. Glad that Red Rising (the new stonemaier announced today) wont be up for preorder til next month, gives time to see how it looks and if its worth picking up!

 

Jan total - £739.34

 

Feb to date

Le Havre - £46.98 delivered w/next day delivery

Honey Buzz mini expansion - $18 (£13.19)

Stonemaier Champion fee - $15 (£10.99)

 

Total - £71.16

 

Likely Pledge managers that will open this month to cover - Cascadia (only backed at £1 so could be costly, would like Calico as well) and Mariana Trench (Backed a two pack but like the look of their playmat!)

I'm going to do this properly now. I feel like I'm still ahead. I have money in my paypal fund from boardgame sales and am selling more games at the minute. I also dropped out of the Carnegie KS. I was worried the game wouldn't be good with 2 but it appears to run very long with 3+ so I cancelled my pledge. This mean my total expenditure so far this year is:

 

January 2021

Those Dark Places RPG book £10.21

Thousand Year Old Vampire   £43

Darwin's Journey (KS) £62.58 (70 euro)

 

Hadrian's Wall pre-order £43.98

Cloud CIty £21.78

 

Ginkgopolis £36.95

Great Western Trail £31.95

 

Keyflower: The Farmers + Beekeeper promo tile £25

Keyflower: The Merchants £24.79

 

Senet Magazine issues 1,3 and 4 £23.89

Total for January: £324.13

Jan total £236.46

 

Feb - Gloomhaven Jaws of the Lion - £42.45

isle of Cats - £40.29


£82.74

€77 for Carnegie Kickstarter - will wait till I see the cost once converted. 
 

I think I have a problem - maybe this will help get it under control.

Was this an actual button upgrade you managed to get or did you just buy some buttons? I've been thinking of doing that for a long time but never actually get round to sourcing buttons but feel it would make a nice addition to the game. Thats automa is expensive, probably not helpful at all but I got mine free in a lookout magazine a while back, didnt realise it was worth as much!

A little bit of both:

They haven't arrived yet so I can't comment on them.

I know, but I can be a bit of a sucker for promos and small add-ons that I never use!  That was the cheapest I could find it for, via eBay.

My bad, I didnt actually get the automa with the magazine, I got it at the same time as the magazine for a couple euros. It was patchwork doodle cards i got with the magazine.  I'm the same though, paid a fair bit to get stuff like the Azul Joker tiles and the Reef mini expansion, never played either game since...

A Lookout magazine? What is that? Worth looking at? I currently have a sub to Tabletop Gaming and I have bought the Senet magazines which I enjoy but not heard of a Lookout title.

 

Worth picking up the first (and only?) issue I've linked below, decent read but obviously focused on their own games, dont have it to hand as its in storage somewhere but there was variants for games too like solo barenpark. The main thing though is it comes with a few promos which some may like here given all the previous nusfjord talk and someone maybe mentioned gingerbread house too? Theres also a few agricola cards, some patchwork doodle cards and a caverna race which doesnt come with the forgotten folk expansion (there is another promo race available for 2 euros if this caverna thing is your reason to buy the magazine). Bargain for 5 euros and dont think shipping was too bad but i added a couple of promos in as well.

Postage now offers only 2 options, one to the EU which is reasonable at 3 euros, but I imagine isn't us, and Worldwide at over 6 euros. Bloody Brexit. I have Caverna, Cave vs Cave, Nusfjord and Gingerbread House so I'm still tempted.

I rebacked Carnegie after cancelling it. FOMO in full effect. £67.59

Also sold lots more games so technically still ahead, that's my excuse. 

Edit:

Whoops, bought a copy of Mechanica KS edition £30

Definitely not. I've picked one up for Root and expansions, and it'll get played a lot more now that setup is so easy.

Kingdomino £12.29

Kingdomino Duel £6.99

EXIT: The Sunken Treasure £9.99

EXIT: Cemetery of the Knight £9.99

Unlock 8! Mythic Adventures £21.79

Tinner's Trail KS £43

 

£104.05

 

Kickstarters we paid for last year don't count, right? If so I should be able to keep things sensible this year, given that I have Kanban EV, The Gallerist, Fruitticola, and Venice due to arrive shortly. Plus Perseverance and Wibbel at some point. If I count them my total would look a lot scarier.

 

EDIT: oh and a LOT of Railroad Ink, but also paid for last year.

Misread this as two promo tiles and my jaw dropped. Where did you get Beekeeper from? It's the only promo I'm missing (that I'm aware of)

@therearerules  I got it on one of the FB groups. Someone was selling Keyflower base game, the Farmers expansion and the promo tile. I messaged to ask if he'd let me have just the expansion and the promo. He said yes.

 

Is it really the only one you need for a complete collection? I'll keep it for you and you can have it when we are next able to play some games in Newcastle.

Nah, you keep it- it's always nice to have something to search for.

 

Also I just checked the bgg page and it turns out there's a bunch of tiles I'd not even heard of. Got the two big expansions, Keymelequin and Key Celeste, which all change the game considerably.

Seen a deal for Fairy Trails on HUKD/Amazon, seems cheap (£12.45) for a new Uwe Rosenberg 2 player game and looks like a nice chilled experience of building little paths to claim fairy houses. Nice gateway/filler style game so I'll stick a link below (says polish but box shows multiple languages although doesn't seem language dependent even if it is).

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B086FWPVPC?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

 

Preordered the Guardians expansion for Marvel Champions too... (£34.94)

 

The Cascadia pledge manger opened yesterday, it was the only KS on my list that i had backed at $1 but ended up ordering it and Calico for £66. We like tile laying games and both seem really nice version of it, the Calico buzz had been pretty high so nice to grab a copy and 30 odd quid per game seems like an okay price.

 

I missed out on Endless Winter: Paleoamericans at kickstarter and am so tempted by the late pledge for it having seen it appear on a lot of most anticipated games of 2021 so may end up backing that but will push it to next month as I think i have spent enough this month and late pledges are open until mid march.

 

Not gonna add it to the list but also ended up signing back up to Audible to get the Red Rising book ahead of the Stonemaier game coming out to see what its all about, good book so far!!

 

Jan total - £739.34

 

Feb to date

Le Havre - £46.98 delivered w/next day delivery

Honey Buzz mini expansion - $18 (£13.19)

Stonemaier Champion fee - $15 (£10.99)

Fairy Trails - £12.45

Marvel Champions Galaxies most wanted expansion (preorder) - £34.94

Cascadia/Calico pledge manger - £66

 

Total - £184.55

Haha!  I've nearly bitten at stupid eBay prices for the Joker tiles myself, and would probably never use them if I did.

Cheers for that, and please do.  Quite a few things there I want if I'm not going to need to remortgage to cover import charges now.

Tinners' Trail KS £43

 

 

You bugger! I didn't see that had been re-released and upgraded a new remastered fancy-pants edition.

I now have £52 (late pledge + postage) on Tinner's Trail to add to my total.

 

Incidentally I now have a copy of Tinners' Trail (Second Edition) to flog.
