Oh, the cover art list looks sexy.

I'll try to convert everyone's lists to that format when I get some down time, thanks.

Happens to me all the time in the only two games I own, Pitfall and Keystone Kapers. That combined with the pricing is why I won't buy any more games in Game Room.

Probably the best $1 you can spend on Live.

If it makes you feel any better, Catan was #4 on my list before I factored in how much I play MvsC2 and the two puzzlers at the end. Catan is certainly awesome and deserves a recommendation.

Hmm, looking at my list, I forgot to mention Dungeon Twister, IF it's still coming, naturally.

That's how I feel. I'm thinking of this in terms of the Outrun HD and the Wipeout HD games. On paper, I should have liked them both, but I really only got into the Outrun game.

I really want Carcassonne but can't bring myself to buy it because it was free at one point. (well, plus I figure nobody will want to play it anymore)

Pretty stupid I know.

Still coming supposedly. I spoke with a few folks at Origins this year who acknowledged it was coming but weren't involved with the video game company enough to give more details (I was speak with the tabletop folks).

Dungeon Twister will melt brains with the levels of strategy required.

That is because the expansions were priced stupidly. They were 5$ iirc for what in the meatspace game was like 5 tiles.
