So, yeah, as the title says. I'm going to post my top 5 boardgames and if anyone else wishes to contribute with their own top 5 that would be awesome, I'd love to see what else people love/are playing!

Best board game ever? Possibly. Every expansion adds so much to this game, and while some people hate expansions and complain about the size of Arkham Horror, I am quite the opposite, I revel in it! I've had a table filled from one end to the other with Arkham, Dunwich, Kingsport, Insmouth, every small box expansion and card, with Guardians and Heralds thrown into the mix.

Love. This. Game!

I don't have much experience with this game yet but I can already tell that its going to be not only an instant hit but one of my top 5 games. Simple premise: Take Twilight Imperium, tweak the hell out of it and actually make it easier to play!

Oh, and change it from a sci-fi setting to a fantasy setting

Out of the games I own, Pandemic is an instant hit and belongs in the top 5. Simple mechanics but awesome gameplay, each game is a race against time to stop the spread of epidemics with your team of specialists. Be careful, a wrong move, especially on the nigh-impossible Hard Mode could cause massive epidemics to erupt all over the world!

This game is one of the best games I have ever played. Unfortunately, it doesn't come out often especially since one of my friends feels that it has no strategy involved and is all about luck (you draw a card that tells you who you are attacking). Personally, for me, that makes this one of the few "screw you" kind of games I enjoy because you realize that the cards are deciding your "fate" but after that its gloves off.

The whole game is one amazing ride with 50+ races to chose from leading to a different game each time. Each race has cool powers, weird powers, game-breaking powers, etc. It's just a whole lot of fun!

It was a toss-up between this and Runebound (lol), and as always my list is subject to change, but I have to say a simple little game known as "Monsters Menace America" wins top prize for being outrageously FUN. You not only take control of a huge monster, you take control of the army, the navy, the air force or the marines and try to stop your rival monsters from stomping away on cities and mutating into even more powerful monsters!

Just plain FUN.

i would have to say these would be my top 5.
T.I. is one of my favorites but the groups is so so with it. about 3 others in the group agree with me so a 3-4 player game is the normal.

everyone in the group likes this one, too bad it is only a 4 player game. i think it's a great game yes i have said somethings negative about it, but i get over those things.

only 3 of us like this one. i play mostly with the same guy all the time, it is a favorite between the both of us. lot of fun, i think this game is only getting better as it continues to expand.

top most favorite no one in the group will say no to this game, most everyone of them will drop plans to play. we all have our set players
makes the game hard for the new comer in the group unless one couldn't make it (we fight over our characters) good times always great game.

this game came at a good time for me, i play this solo a lot, most of the group have moved, wife have stopped them from playing, and or work hours conflict. this game has been my everyday play. i did how ever get to show it to 2 of the people and play it with one of them, they liked it. it has mostly been played solo and with my wife. we both can not wait for the expansions to be released.

1. My top five games starts with Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization. To me the best game I've ever played and a game I can't imagine getting tired of. The only game I rate higher than a 9 (9.9). The other four are as follows:

2. Tigris & Euphrates
A tense, but elegant game, where every single decision is important. Love this game.

3. Hive
Amazing game. Fast, compact, brain burner.

4. Ra
Many plays of this game and have always enjoyed myself. This game has a special place in my heart.

5. Merchants & Marauders
Just a fantastic game.

Just outside the top five (High Frontier, Twilight Struggle. Agricola, and Puerto Rico)
