There's a limit to how much I can convey about a game I haven't even played yet lol

What are the best stores for EU and UK prices? Zatu?

Man, you're on a roll! I'm actually more curious about that one. I've heard great things about the bot and it's been on the Top 100 solo games list for consecutive years now. I think the only part that would set it back for me is that it seemed like it would require longer setup and involve more fiddliness compared to #Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar

I would've said #Catan but I don't own it haha. I'll say #Viticulture: Essential Edition instead but it's the same idea. It's what sparked my board gaming time with my wife and what spurred on future purchases :)

I don't buy enough to be ever asked this question haha. But if someone were to ask, I'd probably just say that it's no different than buying a video/PC game. I think people who ask this question do so because they don't understand what board games mean for hobbyists. For a more mainstream hobby like video games, no one would really ask that because it's such a widely accepted and known form of entertainment. When it comes to board games, a lot of people just flash back to their childhood classic board game experiences so it seems absurd to be buying so many board games.
