I've decided to be a bit more thoughtful about how I buy games for the collection. Not easy when my usual method is to get trigger happy at board game stores. 2 rules- Try before buying when possible and limit my purchases to one game a month (regardless of game cost). Here's my running list of things I'm obsessed with at the moment.
  1. Blood Rage (Try)
    Don't have any area control games in the collection at the moment
  2. Dead of Winter (Buy)
    I've played two games so far and still get the feeling that I've barely scratched the surface and we didn't have all the rules figured out. Might try it one more time before I decide to buy.
  3. Tiny Epic Galaxies (Try)
    Epic space adventures in a box I can travel with? Sign me up.

Ranked in order of how soon I think they will be released
  1. Locke Lamora Book 4 - Scott Lynch
    I know that's not the official series name but you know what I mean. Thorn of Emberlain should be out in the next 0-6 months according to Lynch.
  2. Stormlight Archive Book 3 - Brandon Sanderson
    What. a. Series! Such mind blowing world building. Cannot wait for book 3. I love Sanderson's books of course but I love him 100x more for incredible writing speed.
  3. Kingkiller chronicles Book 3 - Patrick Rothfuss
    The sneakily poetic bits in these books genuinely took my breath away.

  3. Amazon.co.uk has a worse selection, fewer reviews and is more expensive. Thank you exchange rate. 😐 on the plus side - UK prime gets you 1-day shipping which is MAGICAL.
