So I have to admit that while my collection is not as large as other reviewers/collectors out there, it's still pretty damn big. My review queue is quite sizable, with new games arriving on my doorstep weekly.
So what's on the wishlist of a reviewer who gets 99% of their games for free (well...free as no money out of my pocket)
Simple! Older games that aren't really sent out for review, additions to game series of reviewed games, and Grail Games that most likely will never end up in my collection. I'm looking at you #Kingdom Death: Monster.
My current wishlist is as follows:
I try to keep this list as trim as I can, frequently going through it and adding/removing games. Gloomhaven was on there for a while until I won a copy in a giveaway. Spending over $100 on a single game when I have so many unplayed games isn't really an option for me.
If you were to look right now you'd see a LOT of Ticket to Ride stuff. As one of my oldest kid's favorite game, and an easy one to pull out and play almost any time, it's great to have varying maps and play options.
There's some #PitchCar stuff on there too. Sometimes expansions are hard to come by and are expensive when you can find them. There are specific pieces I really want for our set, so these stay on the list.
Getting free games isn't always awesome (lies), and you're at the mercy of what companies want to be reviewed, not so much what you personally want. Wishlists are fun for EVERYONE!
