Hey Guys,

I've got a bunch of different games of several different types (GMT CDG war games, Columbia Block, Descent, Twilight Imperium, Dracula, AGoT) and I was looking for a great area control game.

I prefer a nice, clean board with high quality components (no preferences between Mini's and Chit's).

I look forward to your recommendations!

If you'll be playing with 4 or (better yet) 5 players then get El Grande

If you mean Area Majority (points scored based on presence), then:

El Grande: Basic no-frills.
Struggle of Empires: Heavy, long, army/navy conflict.
Dominant Species: New, popular, long, multi-layered.
Liberté: 2-dimensional area majority.
Maharaja: The Game of Palace Building in India: Action/role selection, building, blocking.
San Marco: One player divides good/bad stuff, other players choose.
Mexica/Tikal/Java: Mask trilogy. Different ways to build and fight for majority.
Carolus Magnus: Fight for colors, colors determine control and when islands join together.
