I think that boardgames and booze are a good mix.
-Hot 10 updated 4/29/14- I've been out of gaming for a while, but managed to put together a game of Civilization that was super duper fun (obviously). With that and upcoming BrianCon, it's about time for me to start re-reading some rules. The Puerto Rico iPad app has been taking up some of my iPaddin' time, and I've been thinking about Dune. That's about it.
Previously 8/20/2012 -- How could High Frontier not be at the top of this list since it is one of the biggest pants kickers to spring forth from gamedom in the past few years? Hellenes has also been brought out again to introduce to new audiences. It's not a dramatic game, but it has its moments and is incredibly clever. Republic of Rome might make an appearance soon, as might Sekigahara. We'll see. Vampire over LackeyCCG has been a semi-regular occurrence so it's paid for its slot here as well.
- Top 10 updated 12/31/11 -- I moved Titan from the number 8 spot to the number 4 spot because, frankly, Titan kicks a lot of game-ass. Civilization might soon get booted from the #10 spot in favor of something more favoritey; we'll see after the next game.
