Games I bought in 2010 and games I want to play in 2011

I bought a lot of games in 2010, why you ask?  Some time back in the 90's I sold most of my RPG collection.  I don't remember the lame excuse I made up at the time there you have it, so this year I did my best to rebuild said collection.  Oh and I bought new stuff that looked cool.  Obviously I bought way to much last year, time to cut back, and I've decided if I'm going to collect RPGs I'm going to stick to non TSR first edition box sets.  I've got my eye on some of the Chaosium catalog.

Stuff I know I bought:
Most of the AD&D hardcovers (I still had my 2e stuff)
Mentzer's Basic, expert and Companion boxed sets
A bunch of AD&D modules (these weren't replacements I just wanted them)
A bunch of Palladium games
  2 complete sets of TMNT and other Strangness
  Palladium fantasy and supplements
  Ninjas and Superspies
Amber Diceless Role-playing
  Shadow Knight
Death Valley free prison
Atomic Highway
  Irradiated Freaks
Dogs in the Vineyard
Barbarians of Lamuria
  Barbarians of the Aftermath
Dresden Flies your world and our world
Savage Worlds Explorers edition
  SW supers
  SW Fantasy
Silver Age Sentinels
The Dying Earth
MERP, and some supplements
Mouse Guard
Burning Wheel
Mutants and Masterminds 2e
Twilight 2000 and a few supplements
2300 AD
Mega Traveler
Star Wars Revised ed (WotC)
Shadows of Yesterday
Starblazer Adventures
Legends of Anglerre
Hamlets Hit Points

I bet I missed a few.  Obviously I didn't read everything, most of the books I just wanted to have, yes I am a consumer.  Some I started reading and gave up on after a couple of pages or chapters I've want to play rules lighter games and GDW products are not rules light.

So what do I want to play this year:

Atomic Highway for the low freak P.A. junkie I am.
Barbarians of Lamuria or some other pulpy low magic fantasy game.
Dresden Files to off set the low magic pulp game.
Starblazer Adventures because FATE games are cool, and I love me some syfy.
I really want to play a heroes game I just haven't found one to love.  When my buddy asked me to run a game I seriously thought about Palladiums Heroes Unlimited, maybe I should read Icons.

I read in Fred Hicks blog if you want to play more you have to run more, I guess I'm running.



  1. Some good stuff! Good luck! Atomic Highway and Starblazer Adventures both look like loads of fun!

  2. That sounds like a great list of games! Best of luck in 2011!

  3. Thanks guys, Christian, did you guys ever give Dresden Flies a go? How was it?

  4. We only played twice before the GM bailed. I still have only a flimsy grasp of the rules, but I really want to remedy that.
