Do card games count? Uno is probably one of my all time favorites.

My friends and I have been playing UNO for a few years now
Relationships are broken when we play UNO...

We keep score and do punishment/shots at every 100point interval. of course, we got our own set of rules

We got two sets of uno, one has a +8 card or we just use two decks if there are more than 7 people playing. so you can imaging the insanity

CAH gets boring after awhile, and this is coming from a person that owns it as well as the other expansion packs.

Played Dead of Winter last night and I've gotta say it's a really really fun board game. I would definitely give it a try if you haven't played it.

^Not a legit game though... But
The gf must have spent a lot of time on making the game look like a real game.
Doesn't even look amateur made.

Had a lot of fun playing Agricola. We had someone who knew how to play the game. It's very stressful but that's what makes it fun. Trying to figure out what you need and seeing if anyone else is going to take it from you...


Picked up Legendary (Marvel deck building game) and also going to give Sheriff of Nottingham a try since it looks pretty fun.

I recommend Sheriff of Nottingham, Coup, Citadels, Catan, and Bang.

Will be getting The Resistance.

^ That pokemon game looks like Takenoko, but I know it's not a direct ripoff. Sheriff is pretty fun.

If you're getting resistance, get Avalon, it has the original plus more characters. It's a lot better imo. It's more dynamic.

Resistance is by far one of the top game in my group, but you obviously need the right type of people to play it.

If you're into the deceptive type of games, I'm pretty sure you've played some or was recommended before, but my list would include Bang, Saboteur, Blood Bound, Coup, and Avalon. There's even expansions coming out for Resistance but I've never played them.

I'm thinking of picking up Twilight Struggle as I've heard it's really good but is rather long. I think it's currently the top rated board game on BoardGameGeek. Not sure if I can get the wife into it though lol.

Agricola and 7 Wonders play pretty well with 2 people. I sometimes don't mind playing Dominion with only 2 people.

Nice! Settlers is a really really fun game, also usually the gateway game to get your friends into other board games .

Just moved to Toronto and there are A LOT of boardgame stores and cafes over here, it's actually pretty awesome. There were barely any in SFO and usually just played boardgames with coworkers over there. Most of the stores also have spaces where there are boardgame nights to try new games or play the ones you have with others.

Picked up Coup and Hanabi from one of the stores. Probably going to check out one of the board game nights and see how it is.

recently, ive been going almost weekly with a few friends to "playerswanted" on victoria and 52, they got open game nights and we've played through quite a few games,

short games weve tried
coup
resistance (guess the traitors)
love letter
batman (love letter) (guess whos the villain)

longer games
sheriff
smash up
some ninja game where you match up combos
battle wizards

battle wizards is probably most fun, create spells to dmg other players from cards you draw
