Erk...should I?

I'm thinking of buying $130 worth of games when I only just spent around 170 the week or two before. My game wall is now 3-4 feet long, 3-4 feet tall and a foot and a half wide. I can't be absolutely certain of this but I'm pretty sure I have more games in shrinkwrap and unplayed even once than those I have played. If not, the number's damn close. Not to mention that I'm currently without any form of income and haven't gotten payed (and am unlikely to ever again) since september. At least these games usually have a high resale value if I ever need to sell them one day for kraft macaroni and cheese or ramen noodles.

Here's what I'm thinking about buying right now:

Axis and Allies - Revised Edition Avalon Hill Strategy War
I won a copy of Axis and Allies: Europe last year at gencon but I've wanted to pick up the basic version for a while now. They just released this revised edition earlier this month with new pieces, new rules, and basically just made it all better. I want, I want. I dunno when I'll actually get a chance to play....but when has that stopped me before.

Diplomacy Avalon Hill Strategy War Party
I played this for the first time at gencon last year and was kinda disapointed in it. It was, however, a fabulous game for groups of people who all know one another, though I imagine it's also the kind of game that causes week long grudges, and if played the wrong way, table overturning fist fights. It's like playing Survivor the home game almost. Everyone's making deals and being twofaced about it. I want this to try at the next sissy game night. I think it would be hilarious frankly.

Dungeoneer - Vault of the Fiends Atlas Games Card War
This is just some random game that struck my fancy along with the expansion set. I guess if I had to whittle things down, this would be a pretty easy one to cut. I have no experience with it nor do I know anyone who does. The description just seemed peachy keen.

Dungeoneer 2 - Tomb of the Lich Lords Atlas Games Card War
See above.

Lunch Money Atlas Games Card Party
Lunch Money. The card game that sissyfight was based off of in good part. I wanted this for the sissy game night even though I really don't like the card game much. I first played it a few years ago and it just didn't DO it for me. The play was sorta obnoxious and no one could remember what all the damn cards did so it was a constant passing of the instructions from hand to hand. Still....

Lunch Money Sticks & Stones Atlas Games Card Party
Expansion for lunch money just came out recently. I figure if I'm getting the original I would be obligated to pick up the expansion as well. It might actually make the game I remember better. Weirder things have happened.

Ninja Burger
From the creator of Munchkin. You play a ninja who runs around trying to deliver burgers in 30 minutes or less. The reviews I've read all seem to state that this is a better game than munchkin, mechanicswise. Seeing as I love munchkin, I almost don't see how I could go wrong with this pick....I think. And really, who dosen't love ninjas and burgers.

Alrighty, your mission if you choose to accept it is to talk me into buying these games. Tell me how you'd be happy to come over and play them with me and how they will bring years of joy and happiness far in excess of their purchase price, a few measely dollars that I'll never miss anyway.
