My gaming group is playing this Saturday. There are four of us and we can't decide what to play! Cast your vote, we have it narrowed down to:

Descent
Tide of Iron
Twighlight Imperium
Arkham Horror
War of the Rings

don't worry about play time or our typical preference. just vote!

Wow -- those are all great options. I'd say no to War of the Ring as it's really a 2 player game (although for new players, it might be better to have teams). Tide of Iron is also a 2 player game that can be played with four. Not sure how that works, as I don't have it. So...

1. Twilight Imperium III (one of my favorites)
2. Descent (Also looks great)
3. Arkham Horror (Love it, but can probably be played in an evening session, unlike the others)

I hope that helps.

I'd say:

Arkham
Descent
TI III

TOI while can be played with four, in it's heart is a two player game,

Man, I think I may need to move Descent up a notch on my wish list!

You just can't be a great game of Descent. Arkham would be second on the list.

Hey Coutney !

Facing seeing you here! Yes, I think you need to bump up Descent on your list... some excellent components in the box - especially the figures!

Go on,... you KNOW you WANT it BAD-ly !

War of the Ring and Tide of Iron are two player games.

Twilight Imperium takes a long time, but would be my choice if you've got at least 6 hours (probably more needed with a bunch of newbies).

I haven't played Descent, but I want it badly and it looks really good. Probably another very long game.

That leaves Arkham Horror as your best choice if you don't have lots of time.

D'oh!! Taunting me in the forums again, are you? Yes, you're right Matt, some very nice components. And the more I think about it, the more I want it. Ack. And I still need to get Tide of Iron (among other things). That'd be one large order, but at least I'd have something to stack on top of TI3!
