This is overtaking Dominion as my favorite Donald X. game (although I have to play it ~100 more times to actually catch up).

Handmade wooden kickstarter auction game - I printed up a paper copy of this to play at PAX East and my actual board just arrived. Looks and plays like nothing else!

This one's new to me and I'm happy to teach / show more people. Really unique kickstarter game and not a terribly long commitment (45-60 minutes for all the 3p games we've played)

Really grooving on this - deckbuilder where you don't know who your friends are and don't have a long time to figure it out. Great theme, too.

It's been over a year since I've played Web of Power - it's really good! One of my favorite majority games next to El Grande and Ginkgopolis, and I don't think a lot of people at Games Keep have played it before.

Trick-taking game of many names - we have this as "Wizard Extreme", and all the cards have incredible heavy-metal fantasy art of centaurs and dryads.

This one's been pretty divisive among the people I've played it with, but I think it's pretty fun and still want to break it out some more.

Just picked this up on Friday. From the designer of Concordia and shares a few similarities. I played it two player over the weekend and really liked it. I would be able to teach it relatively quickly to any new players.

You run a fleet of Portuguese explorers during the Age of Discovery on a journey through uncharted waters along the coast of Africa en route to Japan. Actions take place on a rondel. Players have to be clever in how they carve out their own niche on the board, whether through colonization, market manipulation, infrastructure or discovering new parts of the map.

Playtime is about two hours.

Game Request # 1: Tigris and Euphrates

The #1 game that I really want to learn/play, but do not own. Probably due to necessary player count. If you have a copy and want to play it at Games Keep sometime, let me know! I'll try my best to learn the rules in advance.

- Dave

Not sure exactly how to describe JoCo. It's an experience for sure, heavy on negotiation and the vagaries of fate like an 18th century Cosmic Encounter. I've played four times with 7 different people and it's a 4/3 split between enthusiastic excitement and mild confusion.

Eventually I'd like to get an all-veteran table to try some different scenarios (though the default is still excellent)
