My favorite game of all-time. Fun, fast without being breezy, tactical without being bogged down, and coated in a bulletproof layer of awesome superhero theme.

Formerly my favorite game, dethroned only by Sentinels of the Multiverse. Cooperative Lovecraftian fun, great for a day of going insane. The rules are very dense, and the playtime is long, but I still love it so.

This is one of those games that borders on completely insane, and yet I come back to it again and again and again. I'm really glad it's in my collection and I will almost never turn down a chance to conquer the cosmos.

My favorite casual game. There is enough strategy and variety to keep it engaging, but it's light enough and fast enough that no-one takes it too very seriously; plus the theme is fun for us RPG players.

Another great casual game with an impressive depth of tactics while still staying light and fun. Smash some buildings, eat some people, be an awesome kaiju. Proof Richard Garfield hasn't lost his mojo.

What's not to love about the ur-deckbuilder? The variety in this game is high, and it's fun feeling your brain making the connections between all the little possible combos a given set of card banks open up to you. A true classic, and something I need to get more expansions for ASAP.

7. Board Game: Chicken Caesar [Average Rating:6.75 Overall Rank:2597]

This game could easily be oppressively slow were it not for the excellent theme and the encouragement of table talk. It's Diplomacy with more structure, plus you're all chickens. What's not to love?

8. Board Game: Tales of the Arabian Nights [Average Rating:7.25 Overall Rank:310]

A choose-your-own-adventure board game. It's important to play this game with a total lack of desire to control your outcome, as it defines random and chaotic; your choices guide you a little less than I'd like. But if you cook up some food, sit down for a long haul, and let the story form in front of you, it's a treat.

My favorite euro. I'm still an Ameritrasher at heart, but this one really grabs me. I enjoy its mechanics, and it has enough randomness to not feel oppressive. A++ would play again.

My favorite party game; I've gotten non-gamers into this one with ease, and it's a nice, fast thing to play between heavier games.
