This is flavour or the year for our gaming group. We usually randomize the races and then play. Despite my whining about pulling bad hexes and poor dice rolls, this still is a great game and I cannot see its popularity dropping.
Need to add the expansion! (which I have played)

Again, despite the chance of drawing bad cards in successive turns that can put you behind, this is a very solid game and is often the last play of the night when we want a relatively quick game that has some depth of tactics.

Very popular! Again, again, bring on the expansion!

One of my favourite race games and a big hit with the group! Very simple, yet very clever design. A big hit when we want to go old school!

Another old school game that is such a big hit! Our group plays enough that we don't have one individual taking over the detectives...not multi-player solitaire here!

Scratches that Euro itch in under an hour. A very good game that sees the table often. This is very popular and it scales so well for our group.

Again, bring on the expansion.

I like this game but for me it does become a bit automatic. However, because it scales well and can be played in a relatively quick time it is another game that often is the last played before home to bed.

I have Leaders and the Wonder expansion pack - need to get Cities.

One of the longer Euros that our group enjoys. This is a popular Euro game that has some direct interaction that our group enjoys.

One of the few bidding/stock games that our group enjoys. Doesn't see the table as much as it probably should considering the group likes it a lot.

Here is our dry, somewhat theme-less Euro!
The game play is good in this one and it when it hits the table no one complains.
