As said on the title. Based on my profile ratings, what games you might think i will enjoy?

Ive started to buy boardgames like a year ago. At first i used to buy almost everything, to see what kind of games i like. But after some of disappointments (see my previously owned) i became more careful and i tend to research like too much before buying something haha but now im almost out of ideas, and i really want a new cool and refreshing board game!

So thanks in advance to all! Have a nice day!

A “brief” comment about my tastes:

So my actual favourite game is Hansa Teutonica, i love its simplicity and elegamce, the network building aspect and the “privilege thing” where depending on the colours you unlock you can put cubes in different houses. Almoat the same for Concordia, loved the fact of travelling and putting houses around the map, didnt care too much about the deckbuildind aspect. I also enjoyed the respurce management thing.
The dice management and the variable player powers of marco polo is another of my favourites.
Another game that i really enjoyed along with my friends is Cutthroat Caverns, some of the encounters are really cool with so ingenious abilities(the riddle room is my favourite). Also like the backstabby aspect of the game, though aometimes it makes the game too long.
We played twice a 5 and 6 Rex game and it was a blast for us, the battles were great and tense. The problem is that its too long and ee dnt have that much to play it.
The worker placement of Dogs of War was very cool and the end scoring where some of the VP depends on the house is awesome.
El grande is another big hit, i think i love moving cubes through a big map(like hansa teutonica). Here i enjoyed the area majority and the different turn order with the bidding.

In my gaming group we are 2-5 players (if the games plays well eith 2 players its a plus, another favourites are Hive and Schotten toten).

We love fantasy/historic/old themes and dont care too much about future/space.

A good playtime will be something between 1-2.5 hours.

And about the experience im looking for...well i would like a board game that its exciting to play, with tense moments, interactive, where what you do affects the other players, with great replayability, nice mechanics, different paths to victory...

I think you might enjoy the games I rate highly, and not enjoy the ones I rate poorly.

You like Magic the Gathering and Concordia, man you're ready for anything

Look at the games I score high in my collection, start researching those and take ik from there.

Also as a fellow Magic player if you are looking for 2 player gems that give you the same feel but in a nice compact buy once single box look at

Innovation
Omen: A Reign of War

they might both be hard to get though...
I really like Innovation

Awkward.

To be honest, it would be helpful if you could tell us WHAT you did or didn't like about those specific games. Not everyone will bother to check (I did, but others might not), and besides, it's just a list of games after all.

What kind of experience are you looking for? What kind of mechanisms do you enjoy? How many people are usually playing? Is there a minimum/maximum desired playtime? Are there any themes you hate/love?

I'll add that you should take a look at The Staufer Dynasty.

It's from the same designer as Hansa Teutonica, and is even more streamlined in my opinion.

I would also take a look at Macao.

Most will disagree, Titans drastically alters the feel of the game where Hades just provides a more tense experience.

I wouldn't say that most agree. It really depends on how much you enjoyed the base game.
If you mostly enjoyed the base game, Hades will fix all the minor issues you may have had with the game. But if you thought the base game was lacking and didn't have enough conflicts, Titans is the better choice.

It may not what you were describing but it's by far the most interesting game I've played thematic wise Spirit Island. By far my favorite game that you can tune the difficulty to your liking.


Other game I can recommend Nations
