I've played this game the most of any of them and somehow am still not tired of it. I would say the best part of this game is the interaction with the other players. I like the different ways people will try to trade with each other. I also like the bargaining that goes on with regards to stealing and settlement/road placement.

This game is pretty fantastic. It is easy to pick up for new players, plays fast, and has a great theme. I usually don't like games that eliminate players, but the games are short enough for it not to be a factor. It also scales well, so its just as fun with a few people as it is with six.

This game is pretty intense. Every game I have played has ended with everyone standing up at the table as the last few moves are played out. Every move feels important and the whole game is very challenging. I like the auction mechanism. Its interesting to see people try to bluff each other.

I love this game. I like how every game is different and you need to come up with a new strategy based on what cards are being used in the game. I also like how fast it plays, so you can play multiple times in one sitting. Its also easy to learn the rules, so newbies can pick it up pretty quick.

This is the most recent game we've been playing. I had never played a co-op game before, but I'm a big fan now. Its refreshing to work together with the other players instead of scheming against them. I also like how challenging it is. It feels rewarding when you are able to win a game. The theme is also super cool.

I've had my eye on this one for awhile. It sounds like it is a blast to play. I'd like to try another co-op game and this sounds right up my alley. There is an iphone game called Spaceteam that I love. You work with other players to fly a spaceship and you're basically shouting instructions at each other and trying to work together. This game sounds a little bit like that. I think I would love this game.

I don't know a lot about this game, but some of my friends have recommended it. I've been looking for another heavy game to play with my gamer friends and I think this one sounds like a good fit.

I have played this game once, and it was a long time ago. I liked how you spend the whole game screwing each other over. I also thought it was a great three player game, which I haven't seen too many of. Usually its either 2 or 4+.

Once again, this is a game I know little about but has been recommended by friends. It sounds like the dice are used in a unique way, which I find very interesting.

I love Dominion and all of my friends are big fans too. We've given the base game a lot of love, but haven't really tried out any of the expansions. From what I've heard, this is the best expansion.
