Okay, here is the widely anticipated follow up to the games I hate list. Widely anticipated I hear you ask? Why yes! Because as I know I am the centre of my own universe, I must also be the centre of yours? Anyhoo, these are my favourite games at the moment. They are not in any particular order except as they came to mind. I love them all for lots of reasons, some because I am good at them, others because they look good... And who doesn't love a wargame or two?! Without further ado... the list!

Probably my all time favourite game. I have been playing this one since I was 19. I really like the way that you can be conniving & vindictive, innocent and charming all in the one turn. I also like that I am continuously under rated by silly boys, simply because I am a girl. Which makes me all the happier when I grind them into the ground. I always seem to end up playing Italy. The edition pictured is the one that I was taught on, and therefore has a special place in my heart.

This is a favourite game for me, because it is the one game that hubby grabs when I suggest we play a game. He is a non gamer, but is valiantly making an effort to convert for me. (Makes me feel really special)
I really like how John (hubby) can beat me convincingly and then be beaten by me when we have a rematch. I also like the feel of the pieces & look of the board when we are mid-play.

I discovered this game by accident at a friend of a friends house. I saw it on a bookshelf, and was intrigued. I bought it about 2 days later! I am a science fiction fan, and appreciate the lame jokes. Also, if you can get all the right cards, you can arm yourself with a bananafanafophaser... wheeeee! John Kovalic is a genius of fantasy/science fiction illustrating. As you will see.....

This is such a simple game, and I love that my neices wanted to keep playing it over & over. Art is by John Kovalic, and is hilarious as usual. We always have fun when this one comes out, and it is a great light game when waiting for other guests to arrive.

This is another game that I have been playing since I was 19. I have my ex boyf to blame for my penchant for war games. At least I got one good thing out of our 6 years together!
I havent played this one on a few years, mostly cause I haven't got a copy, but I fondly remember late nights drinking beer, talking crap & occasionally winning. HooHa.

I really love this game, because I won the first ever game that I played. I really think that makes a difference, don't you?
It took us a long time to get the play running smoothly, but it was worth it when we stuck with it. I have lost my copy of this to a friend of the ex. Don't know where it is now, alas.

I really love the way this one looks and feels. In my opinion, Days of Wonder make some real quality games, and for me it is worth it to pay the money for them. (80-100) I like the train theme, and I like that depending on who I play with, I can make little train noises and pretend to be a conductor. Fun fun fun!

I love the theme, the graphics and the fast fun gameplay. hubbby likes it too. I used to recommend this to lots of customers in my game shop as a cheap birthday gift for their kids friends. I hear it is getting re-released? Is it too geeky to buy another copy so that I have both editions?

I have only just started to play this one, and I will have to buy is as soon as we get more in stock. The theme is hilarious, with the artwork bringing many laughs at the games night I last played it at. The quality of the bits in the box are great too. Not too heavy to play after several beers, as I learnt!
