Welcome to the
1 Player Guild's Collective Acquisition Disorder
March 2018 Edition


"Nobody ever said you have to actually play all these games!"


This GeekList exists so that all of us can discuss our recent purchases and share the fun we have braking our wallets. So, if you purchased a game, got it in a trade or even backed a Kickstarter this month, please share it with us! Other things are also welcome as long as they have something to do with the hobby (e.g. paints, craft materials or tools etc.)

Please just post one item for all your purchases in any month. You can always change the game you added as your main entry at a later date, if you wish.

If you need help on how to make your item look nice(r) please see the Forum Formatting Guide and the Tricks of the Geek GeekList.



Here are the rules:
Microbadge: Challenge Completed! You may only add one item per month but discuss an unlimited number of games in it.
Microbadge: Challenge Completed! Be excellent to each other.
Microbadge: Challenge Failed! Please refrain from posting links to Kickstarter campaigns to keep us in line with BGG's rules.



Most importantly:
Have fun!




Constructive criticism is absolutely welcome as there's always room for improvement. This feature is new and I'm sure that I'm going to make some changes/adjustments along the way. I'm determined to make this a place everyone of us can enjoy.

Board Game: Arkham Horror: The Card Game – Dim Carcosa: Mythos Pack

Yup, of course.

Board Game: Aeon's End: Legacy


As a tester I have Legacy free of charge but I'm grabbing a mat and a reset pack too.

Board Game: Edge of Darkness


Guildmaster pledge.
I wish I could have cardboard tokens rather than the ludicrous minis. Honestly? shake

External image


Yup. It's that time.

External image


I somehow desperatly need to toss in the dark. I'll also add the d20 ruby because I don't need it, and the padlock d20 because I need it even less.
What do you mean it makes no sense?

Board Game: D-Day Dice (Second Edition)

I've a feeling this pledge manager will enter history for all the wrong reasons.
(Don't remember if I had to add anything but if you don't complete it it shuts down for you so I'll wait... What a mess.)

Board Game: One Deck Dungeon

That was unexpected.

External image

Nemesis version without the black finish because wow, + the sunstalker tokens + the block tokens + the hidden/activation tokens.
They ain't cheap but they'll be incredibly useful!

Board Game: Arkham Horror: The Card Game – The Forgotten Age: Expansion

I added this to my Carcosa purchase in the end, it will delay shipment but since we still haven't finished Dunwhich that's alright!

Board Game: Unbroken

2. Board Game: Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest [Average Rating:7.38 Overall Rank:6992] [Average Rating:7.38 Unranked]
Board Game: Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest
I'm truly fascinated by the asymmetric game play of both Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 and Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest. The campaign (added by Days & Nights: Red Army Pack) using both games in succession makes it all sound even more interesting. And it all comes with a solo mode to boot! What more could I want?

My Kickstarter carry-overs from last month:
1. Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest (with Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 and Days & Nights: Red Army Pack)
2. Aeon's End: Legacy (with Aeon's End: The Void & Aeon's End: The Outer Dark)

Pledge Manager updates/changes:
1. Kingdom Death: Monster wave 2 shipping will be charged. I should really continue my first campaign blush
2. Changed my Spirits of the Forest pledge to a Life bundle with a deluxe set, but that won't charge till May whistle

Update March 5th
Completed the D-Day Dice (Second Edition) pledge manager. With the surprise add-ons, frustrating website and higher shipping, I decided to only add D-Day Dice (Second Edition): Way to Hell to my Sergeant pledge and skip all the other add-ons I was considering.


Update March 8th
* Completed the Gentes Deluxified pledge manager. My wallet thanks Tasty Minstrel Games, as I was tempted to add some games as add-ons, but then I saw the shipping costs ($50 for a $15 games)
* I received my Petrichor Kickstarter Thunderstorm pledge last Tuesday.

Funagain Going out of (online) business sale coaxed my birthday money out of me, plus a little. I wish I could have pushed it more to make more of shipping, but I am satisfied. The site's slowness, errors and things, slowed me down to where I missed several crisis packs by five and ten minutes, and Heroes Unite by twenty.

Still, Colorpop is something I have been increasingly wanting, and just hadn't officially pulled it off my Heap list yet. I need to check, but this might be my first Heap purchase. My feelings change over time, which is why I bother to put things there with reasons in the first place. $16 had me snatching it.

DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Teen Titans
DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Multiverse Box I think this lets you mix big sets, small already can go inn, so I don't have another set yet, but enough people trade away the first base, that hopefully I can pick it up that way, maybe with a small expansion, for Imperial Settlers.
DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Crossover Pack 6 – Birds of Prey Really happy about this one. Love the lady representation!
DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Crossover Pack 5 – The Rogues

And a practically giving it away at $1.99, Pirate Den, which is definitely not soloable, but we tried a demo at Saltcon several years ago, and really enjoyed it. The gemmy and gold nugget bits are fun and appealing/sensory, too. Check, it's worth it just for those components.

$67 before $15 shipping, which is pushing it, but with that shipping I feel it was the minimum I wouldn't resent the shipping too much,

Okay, I know more of you must have fallen to this sale, if you could get through.

I accidentally backed Page Quest SEASON 1: Mythical Artifacts, with the A4 Quest physical too.

I accidentally backed the pnp for Lightning & Bolt, which I will need to get rid of.

saw my tile/card laying geeklist, and decided to offer to send me, the components for a game on the list, that the manufacturer had replaced. He left which game it was, a surprise. He's in Germany, and I am in Utah, USA, so this was even more incredible.

There are minor flaws or indented lines in a smattering of the cards, but you don't notice most of them during play,,and I don't care about the couple I do. He also told me it wouldn't come with a scoring thing, but I was fine. The game in question is Kodama: The Tree Spirits, and it's great so far. I did make a scoring card and used some flat glass Czechoslovakian leaf and flower beads to tract score and season, and just wrote 40 and 80 on some slips of paper, since my score track was forty based, and not fifty like the manufactured one. I need a 120 as well, based on the score of one game . . .This game is so neat,,and my glass flat beads are thematic. I just need a few more colors.

The Secret One contacted me recently, saying Sylvion was being gifted to me if I wanted. I didn't have any Oniverse games yet, so definitely! I haven't played yet as it only arrived today, but it looks so visual and fun. Thank you so much, you know who you are!

Got this one today, with a few deck boxes which, unfortunately, are too big to fit into the box -I'll buy some smaller ones later then...

Got Alien Menace on the 11th, from a gamer who was selling it pretty cheap (7 bucks) and gave it to me after having gone to a local game festival in my town. We met nearby my house. This has a Doom vibe that I just couldn't resist to ^^

Got Stowaway 52 on the 16th: this one sounded fun so I decided to give it a go. Was purchased from an Ebay seller for 16£, shipping included.

Got an used copy of Arctic Scavengers (french edition of the base game, so with the HQ expansion) on the 26th and for 15 bucks, shipping not included as it was passed from hand to hand. Eager to try the solo variant of this one.

Not something I bought but something I got (A combined "thank you for hosting Santa's Little Secret One" and PIFF-gift from the most generous and wonderful elephantgirl)

Bomb Squad - Not a solo-game but a real-time one (one of my favorite kinds) that I´ve been wanting to play for some time now.
The Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game - a small little solo and I´ve heard only good things about the AI Aaron.
Goblins vs Zombies - a guilty pleasure that I hope to convince my son to play with me.
Hostage Negotiator: Negotiator Cards – Series 1 and Hostage Negotiator: Negotiator Cards – Series 2 - to get more out of the wonderful little gem Hostage Negotiator

Unstable Unicorns with a few expansions showed up

Also pledged for a new kickstarter: Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest

I also put down an order for $50 worth to gaming accessories (tokens, miniatures, dice and more) which quickly arrived here.

The kickstarterpledge for The Legend of Korra: Pro-Bending Arena showed up.

And so did The City of Kings...

And Santa's Little Secret One got me Helionox: Deluxe Edition which also just showed up...

I went to my FLGS today because I needed a can of white primer and wanted to have a look around. There were many great games there -- like e.g. Vengeance, Lobotomy, Spirit Island or Pandemic: Rising Tide -- but I went home with this one because I wanted to have a pirate themed board game for quite a while. I also heard good things about the solo variant by Kyle. I'm already thinking about buying the expansion... Shut up brain!

I also bought some tarot sleeves for The City of Kings, which should arrive before too long and some Black Milliput.

Been stuck in the loop solo playing and multiplayer Imperial Settlers since I got it last month. So I'm getting Imperial Settlers: Why Can't We Be Friends and Imperial Settlers: Aztecs in a day or 2.

Also, had weakness when I saw Combat Commander: Mediterranean for great price on the market.

My FLGS recently introduced a purchased membership thing that allows you to borrow games from their library and gets you a discount on their games (amongst other benefits). I joined, but I think it's going to send my unplayed games through the roof because it encourages me to buy new games but then borrow and play others. Anyway, I picked up the following there:
Dinosaur Island
A Feast for Odin: Lofoten, Orkney, and Tierra del Fuego

The library thing has started to pay off though. I borrowed their library copy of Nations: The Dice Game, which I thought I would end up buying some day. However I wasn't hugely impressed so I'll pass on that one.

I pre-ordered Architects of the West Kingdom from a local online store.
I added Terraforming Mars to an Amazon order.
Finally, (I hope)I kickstarted Palm Island.

Hopefully, April will be a quieter month.


Edit: I was unable to resist a bargain on Viticulture Essential Edition and added Between Two Cities and Between Two Cities: Capitals to my order.

Black Orchestra kickstarter arrived.

I made some poor decisions on Kickstarter last year. One was not backing The City of Kings. However, I managed to preorder this from Gameslore. Hopefully it will arrive this week.

I also decided to order the Terra Mystica-based Gaia Project, based mainly on TM's pedigree, and the inclusion of the Automa from The Automa Factory. Looking forward to getting this to the table.

I bought HEXplore It: The Valley of the Dead King after some reports on SGOYT in March.

And through Kickstarter this month: Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 / Nights of Fire: Battle for Budapest. I also checked out Dice Settlers but was not really sure so I left it at a small support pledge.
