Space trading game. Find the planet that want the goods, then find the planets that produce the goods. Fly between and profit. Is an old old game that's recently been reprinted due to popular demand.

For such a long game it seems pretty low interaction. I'd like to try this though.

Co-op. Knights of the round table defend the realm and complete quests. But one of us *may* may be a traitor

I really like the potential traitor mechanic but the one game of this that I played kinda dragged on

Co-op. There are virus outbreaks happening all over the world. Race around the globe and stop them before they join up and cause a...pandemic. I already have Forbidden Island which I play with the kids. It has similar mechanics and is from the same game designer. It frequently kicks our butts

As I said we already have Forbidden Island and I can add Defenders of the Realm to the list of "other co-ops" now too.

Co-op. The building is on fire. Save the people before the building collapses. The one game of this that I played, a guy busted into a burning bathroom, pulled what turned out to be a cat from the sink and then the shower exploded and he died.

I've played it. It was ok.

Be a Baron trying to control the kingdom in the wake of the Kings death. Amass income, faith, political influence. Each turn players may select 2 actions they'd like. Then everyones selections are shuffled and up to six are drawn, one at a time with every player being able to perform the action. Certain tasks make it more likely that "special phases" may take place. i.e. Collecting lots of taxes triggers a taxation phase. Collecting lots of political power triggers a session of parliament. Looks cool.

I said it looks cool but I can never convince people as to why.

4 side which all play differently. One of them is a giant robot!

While I am intrigued by a board game designed to replicate RTS games I'd have to play this one before purchasing because the description doesn't quite convince me.

Add folks to your guildhall to activate their abilities which get stronger the more you have in there. But when you get to a certain number you trade them in for victory points (so you have to balance between points and capability)

Imagine a card game that simulates a street-fighter style fighting game. Now scrap that because what you imagine is probably silly. This game looks cool (as does the new one).

Looks like fun but as I get more into Mage Wars I'm not sure how much room I have for multiple 2-player games in my life.

I think I'm more enamoured with the art and style than I would be with the game play
