Hi,
My friends and I always seem to have a problem finding a good game for 3 players?
Has anyone got any recommendations for any good 3 player games out there.
Thanks in advance.

What about After the Flood ?

It's designed specifically for 3 players, a mix of resource management and worker placement, with a little of war into it.

Well, I'm not sure how your tastes run, but I'd recommend the following with 3:

Puerto Rico
Caylus
Dominion
Alhambra

That's just a few off the top of my head...

The End of the Triumvirate

Made for three players. There is a two player option in the rulebook, but I can't imagine using it.

Cool little game that looks good too.

I thought of these...

Notre Dame: This one has been mentioned before, but plays very well with 3.
Samurai: An abstract, but excellent game, especially with three. It plays quick too.
Thurn and Taxis: T&T scales very well in my opinion.
Race for the Galaxy: Multi-player solitaire, but great game.
Stone Age: Dice rolling/worker placement/set collection game.. Scales well for all players.
Small World: I feel SW plays very well with three.
