So I just graduated and went through the whole ordeal of setting up a grad party........boring.........big deal I guess.........but wait! People gave me a lot of money! So I've already purchased all the essentials for college, laptop, fridge, printer etc, but now I have my sights set on purchasing two new games before I make my trek to the great unknown of post-secondary education. I play a lot of games but I'm not sure I can restrict myself to putting down criteria for my next purchase, so I'm going to give a small list of my favorites and I hope you guys/gals can fill in what I'm missing and tell me why your recommendation belongs in my collection.

My Collection of Favorites:
Smallworld
Pandemic
Doom
Descent
LNOE
Dominion
Memoir 44
Shadows Over Camelot
Tannhauser
Frag
Heroscape
D&D 4e

Your favourites are a nice mix of Euros and Ameritrash and this game is just about the perfect hybrid of those two styles.

I would say that you need something that is
a) small
b) multiplayer
c) easy to learn
d) doesn't look strange to people who have only played MB games

No Thanks or Slide 5 would fit the bill nicely.
