So, after tonight's game night, I was having a discussions with one of the other players. The games tonight were not to his taste. (We did a dice game night with BANG! The Dice Game, Thief's Market, and House of Borgia.)

When questioned, he said his favorite games were high in theme and production value. I know he enjoys Eldritch Horror, still fondly remembers HeroQuest from his childhood, and was interested in Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu when he saw it tonight. He specifically stated disliking Eclipse, Patchistory, and Scythe.

He's bringing me a list of the games that he hasn't played that excite him on Sunday, but I'm just curious if anyone has any guesses of what he might be interested in.

Happy guessing.

I'd start by listing off some of the recent popular FFG titles, then move into the Cool Mini or Not line:

FFG
Star Wars: Rebellion
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition)

CMON
Blood Rage
The Others

etc.

If Mechs vs. Minions is not leading the list, he can't be taken serious.

No clue what he will like but "the Gallerist was the first thing that came to mind when I read the title of this thread.

Yup. Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game is the greatest Ameritrash game ever made. Flying Frog games are the most overproduced in the hobby, with glossy cards as thick as credit cards.

Their company motto should be "roll, move and kick some ass."

seconding Mechs vs. Minions

it is a phenomenal game with excellent production values. Even opening the box is an experience in and of itself. the gameplay is fun for the eurogamer strategist as well as the visceral ameritrash experience. It is truly a beautiful blending of the things that have made board games great.

So he delivered his list last night. I think this in no particular order.

Jamaica
Letters from Whitechapel
Mansions of Madness: Second Edition
Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game

I feel I'm missing a couple more titles he mentioned, but those are the ones that stood out.

I read him this thread and he was interested in Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition)(which we own and play), Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island, and Firefly: The Game.

He doesn't like Star Wars, play and didn't like Blood Rage or Chaos in the Old World, and didn't have any interest in Mechs vs. Minions because it's from Riot.
