As a commemoration of the end of the 22nd period of 365 days since I arrived various acquaintances decided to hand me slips of paper that I understand are highly coveted in the strange barter system of their people.

It is my understanding that I might obtain some tokens of wood, cardboard and plastic, along with a ruleset which might guide me in the ritualistic movements of these pieces.

Are there any sets which are considered to be particularly desirable in this solar year? I find myself drawn to tales of conflict, trade, nation building and other such exercises in woe, with a strange repulsion from the abstract and dry.

Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game (with F&F and W&W expansions).

More thematic than Clash of Cultures as you have unique Civs with pictures and words and such.

The game comes with a distinct lack of wooden cubes but I find the plastic flags and caravans scratch that itch particularly well.

This is the end; hold your breath and count to ten; feel the earth move and then; hear my heart burst again

Twilight Imperium (Third Edition).

Sounds like you'd fit right in.
