I love all kind of games, and try to collect different games. So take a look at my collection, see what's missing and make a suggestion for that kind of game.

For example, I'm missing a dungeon crawl, a pick up and deliver game, a train game, a worker placement, an abstract, simple card game etc. It could be anything.

Hi,

For a dungeon crawl, I would go with Descent: Journeys in the Dark. I have played this a few times and really enjoy it. Several expansions available as well.

Train game would have to be Ticket to Ride: Europe. Simply an excellent game although I understand that Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries is better if you have only 2 players.

A quick and fun card game could be one of the Fluxx variations, my favourite being Monty Python Fluxx

Have fun making your choices.

Thats tough; your collection is varied. Interesting to see Nexus Ops in there.

I'll second Ticket to Ride. It covers a few catagories you may be missing. A basic economic game would be Acquire.

Picking a dungeon crawler is tough as they vary in style, wieght and even mechanics. Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game seems to garner the most positve reviews and reccomendations.

A simple card game is tough too. How about Innovation, as I feel it is probably the most interesting card game I've played.

Interesting collection... your missing a dicey-euroesque game:

Kingsburg or Alien Frontiers or Dice Town.

I'd also recommend a blind bidding area control game:

Revolution!

Finally, how about a surrealist party game:

Dixit

For dungeon crawls, I second Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game.

For a pick-up and delivery game, as well as a train game, I recommend Railways of the World.

Worker placement game, Stone Age.

Abstract, Hive.

Simple card game, Dominion.

I don't see a bidding game yet: Ra or Santiago will do nicely.

Beautifully simple (and vice versa)

Still enjoying base set, masses of expansions yet to try

Train
Ticket to Ride: Europe
Best map in a classic series

Puzzle / exploration / co-op / genre-bending (!)

Just brilliant - personal flavour-of-the-month

Social deduction (!), of course. I was looking for a genre to get in a recommendation for The Resistance.
