Tabletop and traditional games - What are you playing?

I could have sworn there was a thread on this somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

Mostly starting this thread because I'm looking for a cool board game to play with my girlfriend and friends.

We've played this a couple times:
Code:

It's pretty fun, but after the first hour everything just drags the fuck on and is just tiring.

But this one.... This one is just fucking gold.
Code:

If you're not into fantasy, don't let that stop you, because this game could be in any theme (like crew members on a starship trying to collect data before being caught by some unknown alien threat, it doesn't matter) and still be just as much of a blast. It's pretty much "Oh, that was a dick move.": The Game. You have to lay tiles to build a dungeon, all the while trying to collect enough gold to win the game. Seems pretty simple, but the tiles you lay all have specific things they can do, and you will often hear groans as people manage to play just the right tile to force a player to move far off the path he needed to win the game.

Loads of fun, and I always recommend it to people.

So, now that that's out of the way. I was looking at this, because Dick Move: The Game always goes over so well:

Paranoia-driven co-operative game where you don't know who's against you and inspired by the Thing? Yes, please. It sounds fucking awesome. I hope it is though. Anyone play it?

Re: Tabletop and traditional games - What are you playing?

Gonna be checking those out, thanks. Just started playing a few games of Dominion recently and I've quite enjoyed it. Easy game to learn and there's room for basic strategies which are easy enough to figure out after just a few plays. And there's plenty expansion packs to keep it going for some time, oh and each game (box) has multiple rules / game styles to choose from...so you only use certain cards & items for certain games which adds a fair amount of variety to the game.

Ah ha!

I've been looking at this, too, because it seems almost like a board game adaptation of Dungeon Keeper, and I heart Dungeon Keeper:

Re: Tabletop and traditional games - What are you playing?

I really fancy this, only heard about it a couple of days ago.

Code:
Content visible to registered users only.
Quote:
This description is spoiler free, containing nothing outside the initial rulebook for the game. Details on why this is important in the description.

Risk Legacy represents what is if not a new, at least a rare concept to boardgaming: campaigning. At its core, the game, particularly at first, plays much like regular Risk with a few changes. Players control countries or regions on a map of the world, and through simple combat (with players rolling dice to determine who loses units in each battle) they try to eliminate all opponents from the game board or control a certain number of "red stars", otherwise known as victory points (VPs).

What's different is that Risk Legacy' changes over time based on the outcome of each game and the various choices made by players. In each game, players choose one of five factions; each faction has uniquely shaped pieces, and more importantly, different rules. At the start of the first game, each of these factions gains the ability to break one minor rule, such as the ability to move troops at any time during your turn, as opposed to only at the end.

What makes this game unique is that when powers are chosen, players must choose one of their faction's two powers, affix that power's sticker to their faction card, then destroy the card that has the other rule on it – and by destroy, the rules mean what they say: "If a card is DESTROYED, it is removed from the game permanently. Rip it up. Throw it in the trash." This key concept permeates through the game. Some things you do in a game will affect it temporarily, while others will affect it permanently. These changes may include boosting the resources of a country (for recruiting troops in lieu of the older "match three symbols" style of recruiting), adding bonuses or penalties to defending die rolls to countries, or adding permanent continent troop bonuses that may affect all players.

The rule book itself is also designed to change as the game continues, with blocks of blank space on the pages to allow for rules additions or changes. Entire sections of rules will not take effect until later in the game. The game box contains different sealed packages and compartments, each with a written condition for opening. The rule book indicates that these contain the rule additions, additional faction powers, and other things that should not be discussed here for spoiler protection.

The winner of each of the first 15 games receives a "major bonus," such as founding a major city (which only he will be allowed to start on in future games), deleting a permanent modifier from the board, destroying a country card (preventing it from providing any resources towards purchasing troops in future games), changing a continent troop bonus, or naming a continent, which gives that player a troop bonus in future games. Players who did not win but were not eliminated are allowed to make minor changes to the world, such as founding a minor city or adding resources to a country.

Initial games take approximately 30-90 minutes to play, which includes a brief rules explanation and setup.

Re: Tabletop and traditional games - What are you playing?

I recently hooked up playing some games at a new local game shop by me called the Wandering Dragon.

The most recent games I have played were the Red Dragon Inn, which was a blast and Munchkin Quest.

We also a few weeks ago played Betrayal at House on Haunted Hill as well as a superhero game called Sentinels of the Multiverse.

I got it as a gift for a roommate a long while back, and it was hard to find then, too.... I think it's out of print?

I think I ended up getting mine direct from the designer's website, but that appears sold out, too.

Might not hurt to ask him where you might be able to find it though: http://www.silcom.com/~tomjolly/

Re: Tabletop and traditional games - What are you playing?

I've been playing a lot of the Nepalese board game Bagh-Chal (or Tigers & Goats) recently.
It's an easy little game to pick up but there's a decent bit of strategy to it too.
The good thing is you can easily draw the board on a piece of paper and use improvised pieces if you need to.

Yeah, it's pretty good but strangely unknown. You can also play Main Tapal Empat and Alquerque using the same board.

Here's a pic of my mate mourning the loss of his goats.
