Welcome to the
1 Player Guild's Collective Acquisition Disorder
April 2020 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 breaking our wallets. So, if you purchased a board game, video game or RPG or even got it in a trade or 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. However, feel free to link to the appropriate entry in the 2020 Kickstarter GeekList (see link below)



Most importantly:
Have fun(ds)!




Constructive criticism is absolutely welcome as there's always room for improvement. I'm determined to make this a place everyone of us can enjoy.

I'm not sure I'll be able to buy anything this month, mostly because FFG is holding off new releases and I only inteded to purchase the new Arkham expansions, so... It will depend on the worldwide health situation.

I backed Squire for Hire at the get yourself a custom squire level.

Looking to catch some rats in ratcatcher. Will probably add the Final Girl mats because I'm that weak.

Getting Tiny Ninjas Heroes one way or another but the database has crashed for now.

Hurry up with the Kickstarter so I can give you what's left of my money!

This is likely to be my only purchase for the month too plus the Pax Renaissance reprint and new High Frontier module whistle I'm still not sure what my work situation is going to be after the weekend, so I can't go too crazy for a while!

April 30th: Forgot to update, but this has been pledged for! I was well-behaved the rest of the month, so I decided to go for Apex Therapod too cool

I don't really have room for this game in my life as I'm playing Sentinels of the Multiverse and I've got Aeon's End on deck and my son and I are working through Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Mummy's Mask – Base Set, but it was half off at Half Price Books, so I couldn't resist. I will definitely be playing this with my son, but I play more often than him, so most of my plays will be solo.

I've played this online and like it more than Sprawlopolis! With the circle of stuff to choose, AND building the play area, it's a little less friendly for taking to play on the couch or table when I'm physically going to therapy again, than Sprawlopolis is, though.

I paid for the pnp files last night, as well as nabbed a free promo. Technically still March, but I'm not printing and assembling until later this week/April, so, it works for April.

I need a western game, and since I know I like it, it fits the bill. I hesitate to order from Button Shy for just one game and a couple expansions; I'm hoping to eventualy trade for the professsionally printed one at some point, as that'll be more compact than what I pnp. Then I can put the pnp in my emergency 72 hour kit (which the recent earthquake and aftershocks has more on my mind of late).

I also have a bit more birthday money I was given, after my in laws finally canceled the March 20th family birthday party (I'd canceled going five days before they canceled it, and was treated like I was over-reacting.)

Edit 4/8/20 I spent the rest of my birthday money on stuff to organize the Funkoverse, to organize all the cardboard stuff. I already had most of what I needed to organize the other stuff on hand, buying another plano or two last month to polish that off. I could have gotten both Jurassic sets for what I spent on organizing the cardboard, but I feel streamlining choosing, setting up, will pay off. I already received the expensive thing that is helping even more than I thought.

Also, I won a Fair Trade it Forward Two player - sending Ninja Camp and Piece O Cake, for a $30 ish Buttonshy order. Skulls of Sedlec all in preorder, and Spaceshipped. So I probably won't have any of it until SoS ships, which is just fine as I still have new things to try currently.

Backed Veilwraith on KS, then immediately backed out again. I do not like what they did to the artwork and I think the gameplay is worth about half of the cost of an all-in pledge. Felt sad though. I like the Kilforth games.

Then I decided to buy Marvel Champions. I do not really like the artwork on that either, and it's even more expensive. shake At least I can play it now.

Saw a post about this board game in my Instagram feed earlier today and was immediately intrigued. Apparently, it lends itself quite well to solo play as evident by several solitaire playthroughs on YouTube which motivated me to place an order at the friendly local online gaming store.

I backed The Ratcatcher, Solo Adventure.

Also, ordered Circle the Wagons: Lone Cowboy Rides Again to add a little bit more variety to the game.

Debating on Regicide (it looks like there's some solo variants out).

It's been 36 months since my last blank month, April 2017, this month I haven't received any new item in my mail, but...

I did back Frosthaven, along with it's solo scenarios, and also bought the PDF for the Expansion of 4 Against Darkness, "Greedy Gifts from the Guildmasters".

I'm still on the fence with Final Girl, I love Hostage Negotiator and I have everything for it, not sure If this one scratches the same itch, and not worth investing 100$+.

Also next month is Secret One Gift Exchange which is always exciting.
