I currently own Last Night on Earth, Gosu, Agricola, Carcassonne, Pit, Saboteur, Dominion, Settlers of Catan, Cards Against Humanity, Betrayal at House on the Haunted Hill, Blokus, and currently waiting on DC Comics the Deck Building Game. Those are in no order of favorites either. I've played Descent first and second edition, Food Fight, Epic Spell Wars, King of Tokyo, Citadels, Quarriors, Small World, Ticket to Ride, Ascension, The Resistance, and a few others.

But what should be next? The majority of those games I liked with exception to Small World. Not to say any of those games of gotten stale either. But I want something new.

Any thoughts?

-Robert

How many people? Long or short? Do you like/dislike conflict?

Lots of games to recommend, but not a lot to go on right now. Even checked your profile and previous posts for some sort of hint, but nada.

If you ever have two player games then Seasons. It is better than Gosu on many levels, but the more players you have the more it will drag. Android: Netrunner is also one of the best 2 player experiences out there if you are willing to put in some effort deckbuilding before the game.

Stepping away from 2 player games, you may want to delve into the euros and worker placement games more. If you like Agricola then you can go more in depth with Ora et Labora or faster and leaner with Hansa Teutonica.

I also like many types of games but disliked Small World. You may be ready for something meatier like Dominant Species or Eclipse. Another nice change of pace is Chaos in the Old World which plays like nothing else (in fact I think it's a game that Small World wishes it was: more theme, better area control, plastic minis, actual combat and more unique asymmetrical roles instead of generic fantasy token trading).

Completely out of the box fun can be had with a walk on the Czech Games side (namely a Vlaada game) with a real-time panic laden co-op gem like Space Alert (I hate co-ops but love this game) or thematic worker placement on steroids with Dungeon Petz.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, you're all over the map. Throw a dart at the top 100 list, see if you like it.

You don't even have your games entered in your personal database. Why don't you do that and then give the games a ranking from 1 to 10 (10 being best) and then ask the question, and you may get some helpful advice. As of now you are "all over the map" and no one can really pretend to know what to advise you on.

Okay I updated my profile a little bit. Thanks for the tips. I've been really wanting to try Chaos in the Old World and I've had my eye on Smash Up. Sorry about being all over the place but I like trying and playing many different games and styles.

You don't have an auction/bidding game.

Might I suggest
1) Homesteaders


or

2) Goa


You dont know how fun auction games can be until you play one. then you're hooked.
