A great light-medium board/wargame combo that teaches history very well. I thought it's very clever how the designer turned an imbalanced situation into a balanced gameplay, via different rules (e.g. French player can move 2 orders per turn, Spanish unlimited) and the use of cards. Pretty board is a plus.

Fun city building game with a nice twist: you have to get rid of garbage that multiplies as your city grows. Garbage ultimately doesn't seem that big a deal since there is a last half-turn to get rid of them, but I suspect the designer meant for us to expand the cities more aggressively. Looking forward to more plays.

Superb game that 'simulates' the life of Jesus Christ surprisingly well by adapting Victory Point's famed "State of Siege" engine. I think the historical outcome is very hard to achieve due to high luck factor, but it's still lots of fun to replay over and over again even for a minor victory.

Pretty cool Martin Wallace game. About the same 'weight' as Tinner's Trail. Some people in my group complain about die rolls, but to me they add an acceptable (and realistic) element of unpredictability of dangers of early air travel. Certainly plays more chaotic than a typical Wallace game though, so it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

Awesome economic game from Martin Wallace. Although the learning curve is quite steep, the effort pays off and the logic of the game flows smoothly once you learned it. Currently this game is right up there with Automobile and Power Grid in my list of favorite economic games.

Great farm management game that fits the theme well. The vast amount of occupations and buildings that allow for different paths to victory. Quite AP-prone though, so it's only great with people who don't over-analyze (or where everyone else can pressure AP player to think quicker ;-) )

Best cyberpunk boardgame ever. I don't quite understand why this game got such low scores here on BGG; I suppose if you're looking for a "whodunnit" kind of game (like Clue), you'd be sorely disappointed. This is a different kind of game where you follow your "hunches" about who is the real culprit while trying to cope with personal problems (which is the best part of the game IMO). Really really cool.

Great sequel to a great game. Combining cards from both Roma and Arena into one really makes this breather game much more fun. Of course the outcome still depends a lot on luck, but it's more important to make the best of what you've got, so I'm ok with that.

I didn't know what all the fuss was about Martin Wallace here on BGG until I played Automobile. Now I know why so many people like his games. This is by far one of the best economic/business boardgames ever made. I especially like how the game forces you to continually catch up with technology curve.

A great card game that meshes set collection and auction mechanics very well. I really like how special cards can change the value of various items, so you can both give yourself and edge or hurt your opponents' potential. Very balanced; tight race up to the end in every game I played.

Fun, fast light game that offers a good mix of strategy, backstabbing, and bluffing. I like how the game never drags on too long (every turn you have to play a card), but the ramifications that come from the few decisions you have (which card to play, whether to deploy gangsters in which city) are pretty cool.

Super worker placement game that's hard as hell, but very rewarding at the end where you see all the fancy new buildings you've managed to build and all the favors you've managed to get. Utterly merciless though, so maybe not good for strategic players who hate to see his/her plans dashed to bits.

My all-time favorite economic/business game alongside Power Grid, Navegador, and Automobile. Nothing to complain in this one; I love how "capitalists" (people who focus on buying shares) and "builders" (people who focus on expanding railways) personalities came out in this game. Capitalists always win though, just like in real life :-P

Awesome game of circus management. Money is very tight in this one, so you have to try to plan carefully and hope that lots of people would want to come to your show in the fall near where you are. The theme is unique, it works, and it's a lot of fun solo (haven't played multiplayer yet).

One of the rare games that I think gamers and non-gamers alike can enjoy. I play it both as a gateway game to introduce non-gamer friends, and as light-medium filler for my regular gaming group, and we have fun every time. I think great player interactions that come out of various role cards is what makes this game tick.

A fun light family game with strong "wow" factor, namely the 3D temple that looks cool at the end of the game. The most corrupt player will be fed to the alligators, but corruption lets you build faster, so the trick is how to be the second-most-corrupt player. Always don't mind a game or two of this one.

An awesome game that manages to realistically convey the "semi-cooperative" nature of fighting global warming and the difficulty of aligning one's self-interest with common interest. I don't quite understand what the debate on BGG really is -- there just seems to be a lot of climate change deniers. If you're not one of them, it's hard to see why you wouldn't like this game.

Each clan's special ability that you must balance between getting new cards ("recruiting gangsters") and getting cards in front of you (your gang members) into your hand (so you can use them) better and faster than your opponent makes for a good filler that's deeper than it seems.

Typical Euro with nices bits and board.

Fast and fun little economic game from Friedemann Friese my favorite designer. Full of interesting choices e.g. when to build palace tiles (bring you closer to victory but restrict moneymaking opportunities), what buildings to build, which factory to sell to. It's growing on me and I can see many more plays in the future, especially since it goes much faster than Power Grid.

Pleasant garden game with fiddly weeds mechanic. I like the deduction nature of the game and the different kinds of flowers. Don't really like how fast weed grows, but I guess it captures how annoying real-life weeds can be.

My favorite "chain the cards to make better combos" kind of game. Much better than Dominion IMHO. Multiple roles and buildings make for many different ways to win. Always a tight race until the end. Always look forward to playing and don't see it "get old" anytime soon.

Superb historical strategy game based on the Aaron Burr chapter in US history. I really like how the conspiracy portion affects the trial portion, e.g. if you arrest Burr and his co-conspirators too soon, you may not have enough evidence to secure a verdict.

Superb medium-heavy strategy game about the French Revolution. Clever design (e.g. the radicals get stronger in the second half) makes the game unfold so close to history that it merits the term "simulation." Simple mechanics (draw a card, play a card) belies a lot of depth underneath.

Super cool RPG-board game with a great system of leveling up and spells. Learning the game has a pretty steep learning curve, and battle system is a little too finicky for my tastes (lots of little icons to keep track of), but the overall experience makes all of that worthwhile, especially when your hero powers up enough to wipe out powerful enemies in one turn

Just gawking at the amazing board is an experience, playing it is an experience unlike any other (how many games make you feel like heroes of the Middle Earth or Sauron?). The first time it clocked well over 4 hours, the second time went much smoother. Now, if my friends would only let me play as fellowship. They seem to think I'm a natural Sauron >-)

A superb economic/trading game that I really like. This time you're a Portuguese merchant in the age of discoveries, sending huge fleets around the globe in search of prestige and profits. Great rondel mechanic, many different ways to score points, historical accuracy (it even comes with a booklet that explains important personages in the game) and a very pretty map combine to make a modern classic IMHO.

Decent solo boardgame that puts you in Captain Nemo's boots from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Translates the novel to boardgame format pretty well, i.e. events show up as event cards. I like how you can decide at the beginning on what you (Nemo) want to focus on, and the game will award victory points based on how far you go in achieving those goals.

A disappointment for me as a Martin Wallace fan; expected this to be a bit more than glorified Mastermind. He probably meant to design a family-style game with the similar level of depth as Discworld, but somehow Discworld comes out quite a bit more fun. I guess it's fine for what it is, but if I wanted to play deduction-based murder mystery, I'd play Mystery of the Abbey over this any day of the week.

It's got it all - supply and demand, increasing resource scarcity, cool bidding mechanic (I especially like the "future market"), cost/benefit calculations, and several ways to screw your opponents. Plus it is very thematic - different kinds of power plants, real-world map, etc. One of the rare games that I don't think will ever "get old" for me.

Very cool railroad laying + freight business game that's a lot less luck-based than it first appears. I like how you can modify your odds and the many different ways you can use the die. It's also a fresh take on the railroad genre, with mechanisms that might draw beginners who maybe think Steam is too daunting.

An innovative but sadly overlooked Euro game. Unfortunately official rules are badly translated from German which may deter people; I had to download unofficial rewrite from BGG before I understood how it works. The first few turns we were all a bit clueless, but after a while everything 'clicks' and we began to have fun. If you like thematic economic games, you should definitely enjoy this one.

Awesome management game with a clever auction mechanism that works very well. Feels like Le Havre-light for me, and it hits all the right spots with excellent graphics to boot. The only downside seems to be length - ends right when we're getting used to the flow and looking to do more unloading/trading/buying things.

Great little economic game that's easy to learn and fun to play. It's thematic to boot; I like how tourists will go away after one week (round) if you have no attraction that appeals to each type.

Excellent "gamer's game" that's got it all - lots of different interesting options, balance between short-term and long-term gains, resource management, great art. Plus it's very thematic to boot: I really like how disasters in ancient Rome are modeled in the game, and the "rise of Christianity" event is a nice touch.

Cute filler that takes only 50 minutes to complete. I suspect that if the game hadn't come with cute components, the appeal would go down approx. 50% since it's very luck-based and not well balanced (the "land" objectives are much easier to fulfill than the other two). But then again, surely everyone has a soft spot for pandas :-p

The absolute best "political" game in my collection. It's amazing how closely the relatively simple ruleset simulate the "Gangs of New York" era. Really cut-throat and really exciting especially the final term (4 turns). Even prefer this to the superb Liberte by Martin Wallace.

Another great economic game from Martin Wallace. I really like the role of water in this game (the more you mine, the deeper you get, the more difficult you have to pump water out, and therefore the more costs you have to pay). The theme and mechanics mesh together really well and it offers a decent amount of strategic options in half the time it takes to play Automobile :-)

My most favorite Feld game so far. Tough decisions, lots of ways to score points, and the clever rondel + Trajan mechanics really mesh together very well. I've always liked how Mr. Feld balances between short-term tactics and long-term strategy, but I think Trajan takes this balance to a whole new engrossing level.

Near-perfect strategy game with the best dice mechanic I've seen. Aside from amazing graphics and great replayability, I really like the fact that everything you do in this game has repercussions and trade-offs. Definite keeper.

Simply awesome game that manages to simulate life in the primordial soup. I like how different genes make your amoeba grow into very different tribes. The eat-and-poo cycle that forces some amoeba to die so that others can live is ingenious. Hands down the best biology-themed game I've seen. Plays a tad too long though.

Excellent resource management game with a unique action selection mechanism (if you don't have simple majority you don't get to do the action you want), making for a fun competitive atmosphere (maybe too competitive for some). I really like how the very limited resources in the game forces you to optimize well, and the board art is gorgeous.

Fun RPG/eurogame hybrid that I think manages to 'translate' the fun of dense-text RPG games to eurograme format very well. Definitely better than Prophecy (which I like a lot) and cane be finished in less than half the time it takes to play Prophecy.

Excellent tile-laying game. Hits just the right mix between luck and strategy, long term and short term planning, with different ways to win. The fact that it's very easy to teach and is over in about an hour makes it a good "gateway game" as well.

Super fun "life simulation" game. The mechanic of death is very clever, and really forces you to think what you want each family member (meeple) to be, and who should die first and where. Subtle ways of screwing with other people's plans (especially the "grab two cubes" spots) adds to the fun.

A very interesting game with a unique theme that I think comes across pretty well in mechanics. I like the different ways to score points, and how the game sort of 'forces' you to decide when to switch from merchant to become friar/cardinal (for the rest of the game). Very nice graphics on the game board too.

Fun but fiddly forest management game. I like the impact of seasons and the overall goal (you get points for biodiversity, not money) and how seeds grow into seedlings and trees, but the cards really add large unpredictable element that many friends hate. I'm ok with that though, since nature *is* unpredictable :-)

Fun light solo wargame. Yes luck plays a big factor in this game but I was having too much fun learning about this exciting period of history to care (and it's better if you say "risk management" instead of "luck-driven" anyhow). I also like the fact that you have to balance between pushing back allied units and making sure army/oil/prestige don't go to zero.

Awesome trading/economic game with a unique blend of short-term tactics (own enough shops) and long-term strategy (send your goods to camel, build buildings). The pretty board is also a plus. One of my most favorite games that I don't think will ever get old.

Fun, fast solo card game. The mechanics is pretty good for a 15-20 minutes game. You choose 1-3 cards to resolve events. More cards mean more chance to resolve the event successfully, but also mean less chance to get good scores since the game is over when the deck runs out. Event names are also pretty atmospheric :-)

One of the first print-and-play games I tried, this is by far still one of the best. The simple mechanic (draw a new location, move there, have an encounter) manages to convey a plot and increasing excitement that makes it so much fun. If you like this also try Airborne in my Pocket, the fanmade variant.

Fun and tense solo game based on the proven Siege! engine. Compared to legions of darkness I like Zulus quite a bit more, perhaps because of real historical setting. This little game is slowly growing on me the way Nemo's War did.
