I'm still relatively new to this wide and wonderful world of boardgames and so I figured, why not let the Internet tell me what to play? This Geeklist is a list of games that you think I should play!

Please feel free to add as many items as you like and let me know why you think I should be playing those items!

Another recommendation from Kabrush! This time because of my love of Medieval European themed games.

SdJ winner (1994) that gets overlooked b/c Catan came along the next year.

Compared to today's area control games, it won't blow your hair back, but its use of perspective (i.e. where you're sitting around the table dictates what your card can do) is simplistic yet novel enough that various levels of gamers can play and enjoy the experience.

My only non-dexterity game to be rated above a 9 on BGG. It is the classic to which all other role selection games are compared.

Possibly the best dexterity game ever! It is amazing, one of only 2 games that I have rated a 10.

At least ever since I removed all of my rating of TMG titles.

Provides that puzzle-y experience combined with lasting board effects and great second-guessing your opponents moves and overall strategy.

Plays great with two (looking at you, Steve!)

Pros
1. Time travel
2. Immersive
3. Like across btw a GMless role playing game and a board game
4. Intense fun
5. Is suppose to take multiple sessions and numerous hours to solve
6. Works really well with just two people

Cons
1. There is some replayability but in general once a person solves the game, they aren't going to play again - unless some time goes by and they forget or they are introducing the game to some new people.
2. One needs the first/base game to play the others
3. So far my partner and I have solved each game in one sitting, in less than 4 hrs; even though we expected to savor the game more.
4. Even though they are coming out with a few games a yr, we've played all the current ones. However, in looking this up I noticed there is a new one we have played yet.

This game does time travel better than most, as one actually time hops around. However, it's very much a board game rather than an RPG (our preference).

Tiffany, you can play as Tiffany Aching in the Witches. This is an okay game if you don't know Sir Terry Pratchett's DiscWorld but it's really fun if you do; I highly recommend his books.

It's different than the board game; there is no map. However this is a light game two people can play when they are waiting for others to join them, and it's easy to carry around.

We are still waiting for our Deluxe Innovation from the Kickstarter, however since we were participating in an annual community event about Innovation, Imagination and Creativity, I got a copy of the regular version. We've been playing this game constantly, almost every day, a couple of times a day. It plays really well for two players and once a person is familiar with the cards, it's easy to carry on a conversation while playing.

It provided 1 to 2 hours of fun and some satisfaction completing the puzzles. It's like a escape room in a box and it has some good quality components; not just paper & pen puzzles (a LOT of stuff fits into this small box!).

There's not a lot of replayability, but the website has great instructions for resetting all puzzles, so one can pass it onto another friend to play. The price ($20) isn't bad for a one shot, especially considering game like T.I.M.E. Stories is at least twice that price.

The website also has theme music and even costume ideas. It's really a nice package - all the stuff in the small box plus the website, they have really thought it out well.

The game works really well for 2 people, it would be fine for 3, but I wouldn't try it with any more than 4 people; as everyone has to be able to see and manipulate all the pieces.
