Aloha from Hawaii - What I ride I've had in the last four months.
I bought one game last September (SoC) after reading an article in Wired, and now have about 20. I originally bought the travel version of Infectious to play with my daughter, introduced it to one house mate (who said "I never knew people still played board games, until I met you") then another then another etc. so I had the full size on my "to buy" list. Checking out the Borders after Christmas sale and guess what I find - an unbelievable price - I grab all four copies, open one and stick the other three in my trunk in anticipation of fellow noobs @ bi-weekly game night. I take the travel version to a gathering with heavy video gamers I hook one infectee then another, then another... I bring the full size when there are more infectees and now I only have one spare copy left(basically paid for my copy.) I love board gaming and never imagined these video gamers would ever boardgame. They want to know what these other things are in my bag - TTR and Dominion. LOL
The best part of it all is playing games with my daughter! Her "new favorite" is dominion.
