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!

This arrived yesterday and given how much I loved Firefly, I can't wait to try out the game! I'm actually out with a friend tonight but I'll be very disappointed if I don't get a game in later on

Shadows would be my choice.
We played it only twice and both games were really fun. No traitor role was randomly drawn though (lots of tense anyway). I'd really like to try the game were traitor is involved, especially if it would be me.

I am really hoping to get this to the table tonight. I really enjoy this game and tonight friends are coming over who have never played it and I know (really hope) they will like it.

Also playing a game with people who have never played before gives me the opportunity to try some outlandish stratigy that I know will not work but will be interesting to see what happens when I try it.

4. Board Game: INWO SubGenius [Average Rating:6.02 Overall Rank:7460] [Average Rating:6.02 Unranked]

probably this game. It is a stand alone/expansion to the ccg Illuminati: New World Order, which is the ccg & more interesting version of Illuminati: Deluxe Edition which I have but don't like it as much but is easier to get others to play.

INWO Subgenius I have played by itself I think only one time. I've used its cards in my INWO decks, but seldom played it by itself.

INWO is kinda complicated and tends to be long, at least in my experience.
I haven't played it in like 2 years+

--
Either that or another long, complicated game High Frontier, again because I don't get to play it very often. We're still on the base game.

5. Board Game: Canasta [Average Rating:6.36 Overall Rank:2728]

On account of the fact that there may well be 6 of us, and we rarely have exactly six. So while I really enjoy this game, it doesn't get played that much.

You can play it with 4, of course: but then you're deciding to play sub-par Canasta when you could be playing Bridge shake


I'd be equally happy with Battlestar Galactica but it's out of the question as
1) One of the people coming has vetoed it
2) We won't actually have a copy...
