Here is a list where you can tell everyone what your favorite game is to play. I have listed my favorite. I'm not interested if it is rated high or low, i just want to know why this is your favorite and why i should try out. I recently sold a LOT of magic cards so i have ALOT of store credit at my FLGS. Please give me some good ideas to spend it on!!!

I just learned how to play this game. I will admit that I'm still in that learning phase where nothing seems to make sense quite yet, but i can tell you that i had the most fun ever playing this game. As i get new armies and grow my current armies, i can see this game becoming one of my favorite.

This is an amazing game. Its quick and simple to learn. This can be played with two players or solo. I haven't played solo yet, but it seems like it wouldn't be hard to do so. This takes a lot of strategy to play your heroes right and not get trapped by the numerous traps your opponent is hiding for you, as well as a little luck that you actually find all the treasure chests. This is an amazingly addicting game!

I know, this game has a lot of cards, it has a lottery system, its too long, too many expansions, too many things going on, and I'm sure many other things wrong with it.

Guess what, thats what makes this game amazing! It has a lot of cards, ok, that means every game will be different. It's too long, ok but there are other games out there that are long as well. It has a lottery system, yea, i happen to like games like that and i understand it isn't for everyone.

I find this game gives very satisfying results, yet only takes an hour or so to play a game to conclusion. So, it's easily possible to play 3-4 games in an afternoon.

In addition, you have the Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #5 – Epic Ancients II game which allows you to play bigger scenarios with up to 4 people per side.

Duel of Ages II is a great game. It is easy to pick up quickly and it is my favorite game because almost every time I play there is something unique to remember that we laugh about or remember later, and the game has character, depth and fun all rolled together.

I found this game hidden away on a shelf in a small comic book store. It wasn't getting any attention or love. I picked it up and since the price was decent, decided why not.

I love this game. Its a challenge since the quests to complete are so random that they are sometimes impossible to complete, but the game itself is a simple game if you want something different.

Merchant of Venus has been for a long time. It is an exploration/pick-up-and-deliver game that works well with 2 or more people.

There is a new version out (with slightly changed rules and map, but the reverse side of the board lets you play the game almost like the original version) so you should be able to get a copy.

Merchant of Venus (second edition)





and also Firepower



which is long out of print, but IMHO, is one of the best tactical wargames ever created.

Fun mashup of Euro area control and Ameritrash randomness and special powers, with lots of opportunity to role-play. Each god plays very differently, so there's lots of replay value without having to get the family to learn and remember new rulesets all the time. This one tends to hit the table pretty frequently at our house.
