    I played a couple of games of Sigmar and had a lot of fun with it. I can see why it upsets the hardcore fans but it's easy to grasp and the setting is interesting.

    My bro collects.

    We just played Splendor this past weekend and I beat him and his wife at it. Fun little game. The pieces seriously remind me of Pog slammers from the '90s lol

    I buy 'em every now and then, especially when something unusual catches my eye. Risk, Scrabble, Checkers, and Monopoly are probably my all time favorites.

    Nope, never heard of it until you mentioned it now. I thank you including the video link, but, I don't have the time to watch a clip of that length at the moment, so I looked it up on boardgamegeek.com instead. After reading their summary, it certainly sounds like a cool expansion of the original Risk concept--I like the ongoing campaign approach to the design.

    I have an ongoing risk legacy group. We are little past halfway, and the map is scarred all over. The new stuff you get after certain events happen in game are just crazy.
    We do about 2-4 games a year at Gencon.

    Actually Yes. People were fairly impressed with this version. It's still risk.

    I'm big into abstracts. Go, Pueblo, Blokus, Rumis, Ingenious, Shogi. Stuff like that.

    There's a local group that's big into Saga: Crescent and the Cross, which is a hilarious miniatures battle game that treats the crusades like they were fantasy races. I'm running some crazy religious fanatics who pretty much blow themselves up to generate extra abilities: Screw it, I just killed half my own army but this turn the leftovers are going to ROCK YOUR WORLD.

    Zombicide, Zombicide black plague, Spacehulk and Doom! I actually paint all the minis also. If you haven't played Zombicide its one of the best tabletop games.

They dodged that question a few times during their press event. They had a different company selling it next to them.

    GW and FFG go way back, so i'm not suggesting they have a bad relationship. Blood Bowl manager was good card drafting. I could really get into WH:Quest card game if it works. I've been trying to get into the Co-op LOTR game with my gf, but it's ridiculously complicated to start. 7-8 phases per round is ridiculous.

    While we are on the topic of GW, how much longer can 40k support this company? They've dropped support for all speciality games over a year ago. They killed WH: Fantasy entirely. Age of Sigmar = 40k looking fantasy mini's, and a joke of a rulebook. Sigmar has been a joke of the mini community for the last month, and I dont see that changing. They make quality mini's, but I don't know anyone that is happy with GW as a company. I'm focusing entirely on Mantic, just like most of ex-GW gamers.

    I play a ton of Betrayal at House on the Hill and Dead of Winter. Betrayal is definitely super fun and there is an expansion coming out in a couple of months that I am very stoked about.

    Great game published by Fantasy Flight. Just played this for the first time last Sat. and enjoyed the hell out of it. It's one of those games that rides the line between luck and skill very well. Negotiating market prices, in that phase of play, is surprisingly fun. Hoping to play it again this Saturday.

    WarHammer Quest came out about a month ago. Completely surprised me. This was one of my favorite dungeon exploration games as a teenager. This version is intriguing, but it's not what I would have wanted.

    The new Blood Bowl is also interesting, but there are no details. Plus Guild Ball and Dreadball have filled that role. Are people willing to go back to Blood Bowl? Probably not.

    That's right - because what you want is "Shadows of Brimstone" - trust me

    You can pick up Tabletop Simulator on Steam and download pretty much any board game. If you pick it up, I try to get a game of betrayal like once a week.

    good advise, but it's not something i want to do online. i could always play a mario party game, but if i'm gong to play board games, i want the actual boards. i would love to have a physical collection of the highly complex board games with building pieces moving parts from the 80's and 90's.

    You pick the most Ameritrash game as an example...

    I dont like Warhammer Quest because the expandability of characters is entirely digital at the moment. I don't buy a boardgame so I can add digital DLC characters...

    Necroing this thread to hint on the kickstarter - I love the game and the wild west style, so why not pick up the "Japanotrash" version of it.
    We play this weekly and if you are not hesitant to glue minis yourself I can defenitely recommend it.

    that is a weird mish mash. Brimstone had a nice niche with it's horror wild west theme.
    I'm locked into Myth 2.0, Imperial Assault, Descent. No way i could fit another one of those dungeon games into my group.

    Shameless plug: one of my Soldiers helped in designing and selling Hull Breach and its expansions, he's bringing a set or two to overseas with us to play on downtime. For the next few hours its 40% off and the sales support unit family functions while we're gone.

    My friends and I play a lot of board games, I know a real collector who owns several, he even lent me his copy of Zombicide but we usually just rent the game we want to play from a store. I do own a couple of Illuminati games from Steve Jackson Games but it usually pisses people off because it's insanely competitive.
