Hi guys,

I am quite new to board games and new to this forum as well! So here's a post just to introduce myself to this place.

I got introduced to board games playing at board games cafes and found the board games there a lot more fun than boring ol' monopoly etc. My first purchase was munchkin, and loved it a lot (especially when you are playing with close friends)

I also enjoy some serious strategy games like Carcassonne (which I have on my iphone), Settlers of Catan and Puerto Rico but find it hard to find people to play it with since not many people I know would like to really sit down and engage in a strategy game.

Wonder if there are any active avid boardgamers in this forum also.. Maybe can introduce me to other games I might try

Best regards to all,
KY

Welcome Kangyu,

You will find vast amounts of information on board games that you never would have heard about before. It's a wonderful site to answer questions on any game. Enjoy!!!

Welcome to BGG, KY!


Since it's our country's National Day today, it seems appropriate to point you to this geeklist: All About Singapore

Majulah Singapura!

You may want to look at some of the most recent postings of this thread:

http://geekdo.com/thread/506660/games-for-two-ideas-please-

A fellow Singaporean posted some information on informal gaming meetups. You may be able to try some other games in the meetup.

Wow, I must say I am somewhat surprised to see so many replies. Thanks guys for the warm welcome!

About the meetups, I was wondering if anybody plays Arkham Horror. I understand that it is a cooperative game a little like D&D, without the more complex dice rolls and stuff and I would be interested to try it out.

Cheers and Happy National Day to all fellow Singaporeans!

I have the base game sitting on my shelf at home. Its one of those rare games which can be played solo, for the story experience.
