Welcome to the
1 Player Guild's Collective Acquisition Disorder
May 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.

Hopefully, this month will finally see this expansion's release!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

It should be June But it may be delayed again because of the blob, which has been delaying one of my orders for... 8 months!

Also, backed Railroad Ink Challenge: Shining Yellow Edition all-in after playing a couple solo plays on my blue version. It's a good enough game with a toddler in the house that won't go to bed. Or in her pen. Or anywhere but on your lap ^^ And who doesn't have a nanny anymore because we're for positive upbringing and she's for "letting it cry to sleep. For 45 minutes. That will teach her. Nevermind that she suffered a great deal during her first 3 months, she's 6 months old now, she's A GROWN UP!"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Backed Tanto Cuore digital. Received a review copy of Discovery: The Evolution Game – Prehistory. Digitally, took Monster Train.

Board Game: Xia: Legends of a Drift System
Bought the base game and the Embers expansion last month, and just received the Missions and Powers expansion as well as assembled the Xia Station insert. Now I can finally play the game! Also shout out to Cody Miller who was generous enough to gift me Sellsword. I will never forget this.

On another note, I am still debating but I am pretty sure I will go all in on The Hunters A.D. 2114 campaign. I feel confident that this is the post-apocalyptic RPG I have been looking for. Only worry is whether someone can come up with a good storage solution. From what I understand people are having difficulty putting everything in the 1st edition box even when they are just using baggies. A great game becomes bad when the storage cannot be organized.

I listed it last month, but I bought it today so I'm counting it

I went back and forth up until the last day! The closest thing to a deckbuilder I've played is "Slay the Spire", because I'm a boring weirdo about themes with my physical games. I was pretty hesitant to invest so heavily in a new type of game, but after watching a couple of videos and reading some more thoughts on 1PG I decided to take the plunge Too excited for the Megalodon deck!

edit 1st: A couple of items I was looking at on the market fell through, but Nevsky: Teutons and Rus in Collision 1240-1242 came back into stock, so I took it as a sign I need to fill my order out to release March of the Ants: Empires of the Earth anyway, that gets me most of the way there!

edit 11th: I forgot to update here, I bought a copy of Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar to clear my held items out, but it turned out that I must have imagined Empires of the Earth being in stock because they were still waiting on it laugh So much for not shopping much this year! At least the hold period should go long enough that I can save it for when Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun comes out

I bought the Dutch edition of Terraforming Mars that was finally back in stock after months and am playing it with my daughter. She is crazy about anything space related. But I plan to play the game solo soon, I've tried it on the app and think it can be a very nice and relaxing game for me.

I found the Kindle version for $1.99 or so! I'd been looking at trying another game with a high toy factor (therapeutic reasons) and I'd been eyeing this for a couple of years. Kindle version is usually $11-$20, at last last couple times I checked some time ago.

I have a couple cars, and picked up a couple more that just delight me.

I'm not (at least currently) planning to paint or mod or anything like that. I could always knit or crochet some boulders, trees, and other things if I wanted to.

But, I need to see how it plays.

Cute and/or character cars are my jam. Another way I can mash things up together, which I love doing.

I even bought a few Wonder Woman cars over the last several years, with this game in mind for down the road. I guess we've arrived down the road . . .Or completely off it.

No official solo, though it is mostly cooperative. A family gift, given GF 9's recent stay at home and game bundle for the game.

$50 shipped free, for base, the expansion with Tenant and another doctor, and the convention exclusives bundle that includes K-9 thqt was only including in first printings of the game. There's a couple other things in that hard to get set of things, too.

I'll probably try to solo it at some point, but I don't know how well it will work.

I decided to back to Kickstarter. The expansion greatly improves the game according to Rahdo. Adds a couple new characters and dedicated solo mode using a single character among other cool things. This is literally the only board game thing I've bought all year
