Dungeon Twister. At first glance appears to be a Heroquest style dungeon crawl.
On playing you find that it is a very entertaining Chess like strategy game... hurrah!

Attila. A quick once over of the board and the back of the box would make you think this was a light/mid weight war game.
On playing it is something much more difficulty to categorise, a semi-abstract game of strategic placement and influence.

Go. this is down to ignorance on my part. I bought a Go set on a whim vaguely knowing go was something like Othello.
I wasn't prepared to be blown away by the depth of this game, which surprises me every game I play

Poker... Ah yes the classic game of bluff and chance, which turns out to have very little bluff and chance, if played well that is......

5. Board Game: Power Grid [Average Rating:7.92 Overall Rank:28]
N/A
At first, Power Grid appears to be a game of network expansion and financial management, but once you get into it, it's more about shrewd manipulation of the resource market and the player ordering system.

To the un-educated eye, this game first appears to be a game about matching one booby to the other. But for the keen of mind, its about looking at boobies!
