Okay, so I'm getting together with some friends today for some games.

I'd like to stop by the g-shop to pick up something new.

But I don't know what.

I need some recs, following some of these guidelines:

6+ players
not too complicated - easier to learn
"easy to learn, difficult to master"
we liked heavily themed games - fantasy, SF, horror
card games are a lot of fun for us
Not too long (No Decent-length games...)

We plan on playing Mertwig's Maze, and maybe Race for the Galaxy if only 5 show up. I'm also bringing Dominion (if only 4 show up), and Shadows Over Camelot.

Cool - thanks in advance!

Hex Hex is a light card game that I've found to be a lot of fun.

I had forgotten about Red November - that's been on my list for some time.

Thanks!

Robo Rally is always a good time. If you're worried about length you can limit the number of boards and flags.

If you can find it, I'd recommend this too. Scales nicely with players, particularly if you play teams and a non-race format (like deathmatch or capture the flag with some house rules). Otherwise, a 6-player race is also pretty fun and can be a brutal killfest if limited to one board.

Thanks everyone.

I went to 2 stores to get Robo Rally - always wanted this game, never got it.

Both stores were out! Apparently, it may be OOP, again.

Ordered one on ebay though...

I ended up getting Citadels and Frag Gold Edition, but we didn't play either of them.

Instead, we played a couple games each of Race for the Galaxy and Dominion, and a game of Cut Throat Caverns.

Fun day.
