So one of the mechanics I enjoy is tile placement. I think I like it because I generally like puzzles and enjoy that aspect of the game. I'll list a few of my favs here in no particular order. Feel free to add yours.

I'll start with Fits but you can throw any of the abstracts like Ubongo or Blokus here for me.

M one of my all time favorites and I list it here primarily cause it's dang hard to do a search to find it! But really it's great tile game that plys 2-6 well. It's an abstract so no need to pretend there is a theme. The scoring is pretty cool although I admit we played wrong the first time or two and didn't go counter clockwise to pick up tiles for scoring. This is the crux of the game as you only score 2 colors positively and the rest are negative.

I find this game to be a great beginner game, especially for those newbies that dislike conflict. Each player builds their own separate city for scoring. There are 3 levels to the game from simple to advanced in scoring your meeples. Will be reprinted.

Carcassonne's big brother. Finally re-released. A little more in depth than Carc.

Some real brain burning goodness involved in this one! You try to build the shortest route between your store front and the production facility while at the same time lengthening your opponents routes. The hard part is making sure no illegal road blocks are built along the way...

Interesting game once we got through the rules, I think it took at least 3 tries before we got it right. Has game mechanics fitting the theme.

AKA Dschunke: Das Legespiel I really enjoyed this little free print and play by Michael Schacht. You can play the tiles upwards adding some tactics. Makes a nice portable 2 player filler.

This is a great game and I'm glad to see it get a reprint by Z man. If you don't like the race aspect you can always house rule some other way to get the new machines like auctioning with points etc. Personally I like the grab mechanic and trying to fit a machine in that wasn't quite what you thought it was...

If you like puzzles and tile placement, this might be something of interest. I've found it enjoyable to play, but one had better enjoy puzzles. I also prefer the speed version of the game, but others often prefer the slower version.

Very fun, simple abstract that scales wonderfully from 2 to 4 players. A great game to introduce to non-gamers or to act as a slightly longer filler on a more dedicated game night.

Stand alone version of Carc that is, IMO, far better out of the box than vanilla Carc (plus I much prefer the art and theme of this one).

A truly excellent tile layer that takes the concept and dials it up to 11 with the way that all of the different unit abilities, upgrades, etc. work. And it's so tight and tense; like a knife fight in a phone box.

Blokus Duo is one of my favorites. Very easy to teach the rules, yet always a strategic/tactical challenge.

(One could argue that my favorite game Go is a tile placement game, simply with round tiles, but I suppose that wouldn't be in the spirit of what you're looking for...)
