Guest COMR4DE Posted December 22, 2014 Share Posted December 22, 2014 Sorry if there is an old buried thread about this, I was lazy on my searching, but here go's! Anyone have a favorite board/card game? I'm a big fan of board games, I love sitting around a table and having physical and social interaction with friends, plus it's more inviting than video games (for example I can play board games with my dad and mom but they dare not touch a controller). Just to list a few I have and play regularly. - Settlers of Catan (I have all expansions, except for the more players expansions for each set, my fav of them all) - Ticket to Ride America (Lately this has been the one I play the most so I may invest in another TTR) - Betrayal on the House on the Hill (Love the replay ability of this, but the complexity scares others) - Pandemic (Coop greatness!) - Munchkins (I own a few expansions, love the simplicity and role-play of it) - Life (WHO DOESN'T LIKE PLAYING LIFE) - Magic the gathering (of course...) There's a couple extras I have that I can't think right now but I don’t really play anymore. I know there’s more great games out there I don’t own or have played yet, so let me know if you guys have suggestions! I really like player choice and high replay ability and differing strategies (Settlers of Catan is my fav) I don’t like depending on RNG, I understand that like 90% of games use at least 1 or 2 die, but I think that is the most I can tolerate. RNG really annoys me when it's more directly effecting someone like if you have to roll a die to determine how much damage you deal to someone, rather than everyone rolls a die at the beginning of their turn to determine what happens during that turn more or less (since it effects everyone). Because I feel if the die rolls effect everyone, then everyone is on a more level playing field and strategy and planning come more in play than just "Let me roll this die and get a 6 and steam roll your face because of my 'Luck' har har" if you know what I mean. However don’t let the above persuade you not to recommend a game, please recommend anything! Even if it is Chess or checkers ;) If you have cool games for cards that would be awesome, more than just the standard poker, bridge, spades, etc... Hope to find a new fav game from this thread!
