If you knew your life would end after playing just 100 games, what would some of them be? What are your absolute favorite games?
What would you play if you could only play one for the rest of your life?

Heh. Twilight Imperium, definitely. I'll live a long and healthy life that way.

Settlers of Catan. I've never turned down a game.

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

More interested in the games rather than how to manipulate what you play in order to extend your life. A single game of Chess could do that.

Go and Bridge, have to play a game of both before I die.

But I'd rather play either with someone who really knows the game, especially Go. Otherwise it's just laying down a bunch of pebbles and saying "look, you've won!" "wait, what?"

I've never played Go or Bridge either. Go seems like an interesting game, but as you wrote, would probably be best with someone who knows the game.

actually if your going to learn GO, have someone with experience teach you and another person at the same time. Then the 2 new players play with the teacher watching, otherwise you just get killed badly and its no fun.
