These are games my gaming group plays. I like to think of them as having certain common threads. If you like one, you may like some of the others.

(I don't know why I picked this picture). Settlers is a relatively new one for us, but it's quickly become a staple. It's a good game because there's a nice bit of strategy mixed with some luck.

2. Board Game: Star Wars: Epic Duels [Average Rating:6.97 Overall Rank:1019]

Epic Duels, until lately, was our ultimate favorite. For two years, we played nothing but this game. It occupied our thoughts, our email conversations, and our dreams. We created custom decks; we re-wrote the existing decks. My friend, Roman, modifed the figures (as the person who took this picture did). In a last-ditch desperate move to keep the game interesting we created decks based on the film, Goodfellas. The emergence of Star Wars Minis, combined with eventually getting bored with Epic Duels, will probably minimize rounds of ED at future gaming sessions.

We've played this once so far and it was fun, a little like Epic Duels but more sophisticated. I'm betting my life savings (literally) on it being worth the investment.

Everybody loves Illuminati...except me. I think it's OK. But it always seems like the guy who's doing the best gets ganged up and loses his power. Then nobody has enough left to stop the guy who's doing the second best.

The last couple times we've played Slapshot I've realized there's not a whole lot to it in terms of strategy. Or maybe one vocal member of our gaming group has made me think that. At any rate, it's still fun to break up the pace of a gaming session.

Despite it's relatively high ranking among Board Game Geek Geeks, we could never really get into this game. It seemed like you were always at a disadvantage when you attacked and the best strategy was to wait for someone to attack you. Which led to waiting...and waiting...and someone saying, "OK...fine! I'll attack!"

(Argh Zombies! There...pretty as a picture.) I enjoy Zombies. It's a beer and pretzels game and it's fun. It's nowhere near some of the other ones in terms of strategy, but it's certainly fun. If it were a song, it would have one extra chorus. That last charge for the helipad always seems to come right as people are about ready to be done.

Power Barons is vastly underrated. This is a nice game of strategy and bluffing. I picked up a pristine copy off of Ebay for 15 bucks. Definitely worth checking out.
