I MUST add this.
You do need to spend a good long period playing this (a full game can take many rounds).

Also, there always tends to be an issue on agreeing the scoring rules to use.
Because it can be a long time between plays, then I also struggle remembering the scoring !!!

But having said all that I do enjoy this,

... and it is not a simple Luck Game !!!!

At #! On my game list is…. ASL!

I've been playing this game for about 18 years. This is a challenging, but very rewarding game to play. The phase structure of the turns mean that both players are always doing something, which means NO downtime between turns. Game play is always intense.

No other game has the same replayability. If you own the complete system, you can play every major and minor participant in the war, and fight on any front. If a vehicle, weapon, or troop existed in WWII, you can probably find it somewhere in a module or expansion.

Risky beach landings, chest thumping night assaults, audacious river assaults, blitzkrieg across open steppes, desert warfare, jungle warfare, gritty street fights, air assaults, commando raids, fighting withdrawals, fighting in caves and sewers, clever ambushes, and on and on…. It is all there.

Each nationality has a different feel when played. The game is also very flexible. There are more than 50 geomorphic map boards that can be placed together to make custom maps. In addition, there are a large number of historical maps based on careful research of the actual terrain on which the battles were fought.

There are several thousand published scenarios available, and some are free for downloading from the web. In addition there are rules for solitaire play, email and postal play, online game play through Virtual Advanced Squad Leader (VASL), and design your own games called DYO.

There is a thriving community of dedicated players who produce scenarios and historical modules for this game. In addition there are expansions for the system covering the Spanish civil war, the Italian invasion of Ethiopia and other non-WWII battles.

There is a large body of information about the game including FAQ’s and mailing lists to assist players with game play and rules interpretations. Other players are fairly easy to find via the Internet, and most major metropolitan areas will have an active group of ASL players.

This game currently sits at the top of my list of games I like. I have always loved wargames ever since being introduced to the hobby when I discovered my fathers copy of Blitzkreig. While not of the traditional simulation school, this is the game that I can actually get tabled that scratches my itch for the high tension that only a wargame can provide me. Every time I play my stomach wrenches in that, "What is going to happen next?", way. This game is great it has tension, interesting decisions, deep frustrations, and a very light rule set for a game of its type. My only gripe is I do not get to play it enough.

Oh and did I mention my wife likes it too?

Another perfect 10 from Knizia. The Auctions are so hard to judge and then after that come the investments and competition in various scoring categories, pyramids, temples, sets, max, power cards and then finally the game theoretic aspect of figuring out what everyone else is going to sacrifice. To add to all this, there is a lot of advantage in going first\early, in terms of placing a strong bid for a province, especially if you have a bid block power card to go with it, so you're trying to be situated in a good spot in the turn order. So many things to think about. The game is very hard and also very fun especially since the game theory makes it a little poker like and you're trying to figure out what a particular player is going to do, will they compete or not? how much will they sacrifice or will they steal? Phew.. all around awesomeness from Knizia. Very hard game to get a handle on.

I haven't played it very much, but I really love this game. Maybe its because it was a gift from my wife on our 1st anniversary, maybe its because I love the fact that you can mess with things across time via the ripple effect.

Anyway, its just a great game with a unique (don't quote me on that) mechanic. The components and board are nicely done and have great artwork as well.

I have so many favorite games, it's hard to choose. But the game I am most addicted to at the moment is Race for the galaxy. I guess the fact that I have been reading BGG threads and geeklists and emails and watching series on my pc all evening again, while checking every few minutes if it's my turn again on one of my 8 games on the RftG genie server, says it all

I don't love this game as a game in itself. I will always remember this game because I went out as a young teenager and picked this game myself at my local game store. It wasn't a game I'd seen before (like Ambush! that I'd bought but had played a bunch of times before). And I didn't know a lot about wars in the middle east either at that time. Nor had I played a lot of such wargames (played Gettysburg 125th Smithsonian ed. and Ambush!). Added to that my english wasn't really at the level yet to be able to read this easily (english is not my native language). So I spent long hours slowly reading over every line of the manual, trying to understand enough to be able to set up a simple scenario. The poor production quality of the game didn't help matters, the manual had been wrongly cut at an angle cutting of some of the words on each page. The map was so poorly printed the errata comments call it the worst map ever – even the terrain key is colored differently from the actual hexes. I haven't played it a lot either. But I looked at it a lot, I will never forget this game. Funny that I later end up marrying an Iranian . You think it was the game?...

This is my current favorite game.

It's so full of story, that it boggles me when people complain that it has so much potential for story but falls short.

We've still got a lot of room to go before we come close to running out of official scenarios ~ they may not be included in the box, but they do exist ~ and then there are fan-made scenarios, and, if we ever run out of those we just might have to make up some of our own.

The game is also expandable, both through official means and fan-made, with additional factions, maps, and more.

I would have to go with Chess.

I am a mediocre tournament chess player. I love this because of the tense adrenaline building stress that you get when playing a slow game (Chess slang for a game in which each player has at least one hour to play the whole game).

I made friends playing chess. I got a great job in a chess specialized FLGS because of tournament chess. I started a Chess club at my high school... I've been playing seriously for 6 years (I'm 22) and counting.

Not that I don't love other games, just that Chess has had impacts on my life greater than just playing and having fun with a group of friends.

Notable other: I absolutely, positively adore Race for the Galaxy with the 2 expansions...
