I am one of friends with jojo. Our favourite boardgames include Puerto Rico, Power Grid, Caylus, Morden Arts, Stone Age, and so on. We also play a Chinese boardgame - Killers of Three Kingdoms, a ancient theme game based on Bang!'s mechanism. The recent hot game in our group is Race for the Galaxy. It has a simplified-Chinese version published by a Hong Kong based company.
Jojo has organized a boardgame club, which have more than a hundred boardgames. And his club's collections are growing. Although there'are many party games and family games, jojo and I prefer to play strategy game often.
The next our interest area is wargame. Maybe next few months we will try some of wargames.
