What is your game buying philosophy?
I am finding myself getting stuck in this place where there are games I am super interested in, but my main group of gamers either are not interested in them or they are too heavy.
The main example of this right now is Lisboa. I am definitely becoming more interested in it. It seems like a heavy beast that the more you play, the more layers are revealed, which I love in games, plus it is gorgeous. My friends are not light gamers either, we play Gaia Project, Agricola, Terraforming Mars all with no problem (I mean our faces melt off every time we play Gaia Project but it is worth it).
Here is my main question, do you only buy games that will get to the table? Or do you buy games that interest you (with a solo variant) and hope they make it to the table?
