I threw out an idea on monday for a game of the day on the love thread. The idea was a different game every day that we could talk about, trade ideas and just generally a good chat about.

This list is to record those games.

This was the first one picked. I picked this one as I thought it was a very well known game and everyone would have something to say about it, they did.

A good start I felt.

I chose this as the second game, because I just had my first play, and thought it was a great game, and I'd like to champion the game

This was my choice. My favourite game, which I thought would get people talking as it seems to have a wide variation of ratings here on BGG.

Some find it dull and pointless. Others, like me, can't get enough. I wondered if some of the people who don't like it do so because they look at it as a language game rather than an abstract tile-placement game.

Or, as

And here's my choice. A game I really enjoy especially with 3-4 players. It's still a fun with only two, but one player will have to control all the characters hunting Dracula and it can be a little much for some people and there's more interaction with 3-4 people and that's always a plus.

Since no one has made any suggestions I'll fill the gap:

With Battleball!

It's an older title (from 2003), but still an incredibly fun game for two players! Rush forward with your teams to score, and smack your opponent on your way to touchdown! Found it at a bargain price on ebay and haven't regretted buying it. The figures are cool, the dice as well, and the board is frickin' HUGE!cool

Go, Iron Wolves, go!

It's the number one game on the geek, so a good one to talk about.

Today we have been mostly (or rather, 'occasionally and absent-mindedly') discussing the SDJ nominees.
