Similarity of games on wishlists.


Do you ever have games on your wishlist that all fill a similar hole. I am speaking of games which, if you get one them, you will probably remove the rest on your list.

I can give you some examples.

I for a while had #Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar and #Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain on my BGA wishlist. These are both COIN games, and they both have Roman(ish) themes. I recognize that the they are somewhat different. And, indeed 400-500 years separate there themes. But, eventually I bought #Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, it is waiting in the states for me. But, I did remove #Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar from my list. The reason I removed it is that I felt that, at this point, they would really compete for play time. Of course, I might get to the point at which I am more of a connisour of COIN games, or conflict games in general. And at that point, #Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar will probably be back on my list.

Another example I can give is heavy Lacerda games. I have, on my wishlist, #Lisboa and #The Gallerist, and, I could easily add #On Mars to that list. These are the big, heavy, and expensive games by Vital Lacerda. If I would get one of these, I would probably take the others off. Of course, I have yet to play a Lacerda, and, if I would play him and love him, they would probably all be on my list. But, at this point, they are expensive enough, that I would be happy with one for now.

So, do any of you do this? Does it make sense to have games that fill the same hole, no matter what that hole is, on your wishlist?

I think I'm like you in this case. You research multiple games for the same spot in your collection but then you make a decision and that spot is filled. So you don't need to acquire those other games as much. Maybe you still will, maybe you won't. But the need isn't as great anymore.
