It's the weekend again!

Maybe you're playing games tonight, maybe you aren't. Even if you are, maybe it isn't your turn to choose! Maybe you don't even own the game you really want to play.

What would you play if you could?

More importantly, why?
Is it your game of the moment? Did you play it years ago and never had a chance since? Whatever the reason, I want to know!

I've been promising my kids we'll play this for a couple of weeks now. As well as the Halloween add on, I've also made some new monsters myself and it'd be good to give them a test drive.

Hopefully we can get a game in tonight

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

I'm hoping to get this retheme that was done for duck dealer, some amazing work to say to the least. This fantasy theme is much more approachable to my game groups. Click on the picture and then look at the original size to understand how good it is.

I actually AM playing this tonight - going to a friend's where there will be gaming & bringing this along.

Why this one?

- only the people who preordered it seem to have it so far, so I can be the 'cool kid' who has something unattainable - at least for the next week or two
- it's a great game that is not getting the buzz it deserves
- the theme will appeal to the guys who will be there
- it's absolutely gorgeous - even the non-gamers at the party will be likely to stop and look at it.

I borrowed the group's copy to see if my wife likes it or not.
We haven't played it yet.
Secret Santa's are assigned in a few days so it should get played sooner rather than later.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

I'd choose 1834, and the Takeover Game in particular.

It hasn't yet been published, but I don't think that's an obstacle for this list!

It's been a while since the last game, the next expansion is "released" (in scary quotes because it hasn't arrived in Europe yet), and it's a game I haven't anywhere near exhausted or even started to properly understand yet.

Oh, and I just got one of those neat shiny oversized playing mats.

Alternatively, Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game. We finished watching the entire series about a month ago, and I've been excited about the game all this time throughout watching the thing, and for a while afterwards. It's worn off a bit though.

This is my favorite game in the world, but I almost never get to play it.

It's so hard to find players.

It's now early Sunday morning and I didn't get to play it.

I went to my FLGS today, hoping to get some of the regulars into FD or my other recent acquisition, Libertalia.
There's a group that plays Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar almost every week and used to play a lot of Age of Empires III: The Age of Discovery. I figured they would go for Francis Drake. They also like 7 Wonders and ask for it whenever I see them there. Libertalia would probably be an good fit.

Unfortunately there weren't a whole lot of people there. Maybe I'll have better luck on a weeknight.

It has been way too long since I played this the last time... and I probably won't have the opportunity to play it before the Christmas holidays. Since I'm currently living in Austria for my Erasmus scholarship and here I didn't met gamers willing to play "heavy" stuff like this, my desire to play this game is going to be unsatisfied for more then one month still.

Imperial 2030 is a game that really united all the people in my gaming group (in Italy, of course). We all find it challenging, intense and very rewarding on a intellectual level, when you do a good move that ruins the plan of everyone else at the table (or things like that). Even if the rules are not complicated, it's still such a deeply strategic game! I didn't play it many times yet, but I've the feeling that this may become my favourite game (or at least one of my favourites)
