  • Fun show guys!

    No big, deep discussions came-up in the 55 mintues, but it was great listening in ;)

    I'll contribute my short list of favorite board games, since that was actually part of the event.. got me thinking about great board games!

    Lighter games:

    -Fury of Dracula (especially fun for Halloween)
    -Runebound (bit slow with many people, but I enjoy it with about 3, best with Sands of Al Kalim exp)
    -Descent (think D&D, but with much more simply and crisp rules and short scenarios)
    -Goa (lesser known Eurogame, perhaps my favorite in that category)
    -Antiquity (amazing and unique game from specialty game maker Splotter Spellen)
    -Indonesia (bidding and economic game, also from Splotter Spellen)
    -Imperial (inpsired by the classic Diplomacy game, has a strong economic twist)
    -The Princes of Florence (bidding game that is a real classic Euro)
    -Dungeon Twister (romp around in a dungeon trying to finish eachother off, cool expansions)
    -Year of the Dragon (interesting combination of bidding, area control, and other mechancs)
    -Neuroshima Hex! (one of the better short games... takes only 30 minutes but packs great skill)
    -Leonardo da Vinci (great combination of area control, bidding, and planning ahead)
    -Blue Moon (non-collectible game with collectible card game feel and great art)

    Heavier games for the hardcore only:

    -The Napoleonic Wars (takes 5 players and about 10 hours, but probably my favorite board game)
    -Empire of the Sun (2 player wargame that is totally unique an amazing... very complicated)
    -Advanced Squad Leader (my own favorite squad level WWII game)

    RPG/Boardgame hybrids:
    -Battlestations (I love this game! Mixes RPG with a clean system and competitive play options)
    -All Things Zombie (another game in this new genre combining board game with RPG)
    -Savage Worlds (this is for those who want more RPG and less board game, but still a hybrid).

    Enjoy!
