New members often ask what we play, so I decided to make a list. Hopefully I'll remember to update it after each Game Night. Please feel free to add games that you remember and your thoughts on any of them.

One of our favorites, this one seems to come out a lot, usually with the expansion.

Update 2/15: I don't think any current member owns this, so it's not a regular game anymore. Still a good game. The sequel, World Without End, is on my shelf and is also good.

An excellent backstabbing game that usually goes over well, except for the people that can't tolerate any luck in a game.

Pretty popular with most, except for those who think it takes too long.

A great option for 3 players, and still very good with 4.

For large groups who don't mind a bit of chaos. 8 players was an interesting experience that I'd rather not repeat.

Another love it or hate it type of game. If you don't like auction games, then you won't like this, but there is a core among the group that really enjoys it.

We play this all the time. Oh wait, we never play this.

But it's one of my favorites damn-it! Someday...

Edit: OK, we've played it now, so I'm good.

And it's younger sibling...

This is becoming more and more common when the number of players doesn't quite match up with what people want to play. The most popular two player game amongst the group right now.

People seem to like this one more the more we play it, although it dragged with 6 players (2v2v2) using the Babel 13 expansion. I think we'll stick with 4 players (2v2).

A new addition which seems to be a hit so far. Deeper than the theme and graphics may lead you to believe.

Update: Still a good game for 6-7 players, but we've noticed that people can slow the game down significantly it they try to analyze every move. If people move things along, it's fine.

Only one play so far, but the jury is still out. Mike will rate it low because he finished last. The game ended in a 2-way tie.

Update: Mixed reviews so far. I like it, some people think George Washington is overpowered, and one person thinks the theme is poorly implemented.

Update 2: Learned we've been playing it wrong, not scoring points for delegates in the committee room. Suddenly this is a much better game!

This seems to be a hit with most people, except the ones who don't like stock trading games.

Update: It's a train game, so TJ always wins.

When this hits the table, it's usually because we have an hour or so before people want to call it quits. It fills that slot quite nicely.

A nice filler game while waiting for other players. Whether or not you'll enjoy it depends on if you like co-ops.

Update: This got stale pretty quickly. My copy hasn't hit the table in forever, so it's up for sale.
