Can I recommend the game Dominion? Simple card game with very good replayability, lots of variation. Has won lots of awards:

Dominion is a good game, but I think most board/card gamers have heard of it by now. :)

Other than Talisman, DungeonQuest, and Arkham Asylum. those are the only Boardgames.

Speaking of board games, we picked up Castle Ravenloft, and our friends picked up Castle Panic, based upon playing each at PAX. Thurn and Taxis got added to my “to buy” list. Forbidden Island was cute, but didn’t seem deep enough to be worth buying.

Can’t you just rent The Manhattan Project and skip researching nukes?

Maybe a few clues? I keep banging the lumps of U-238 together, and nothing happens. Well, except for my hair falling out, and that’s no problem. I can’t get a date anyway.
That’d be what the nukes are for.

Thanks for this post! I’m one of those who have been bugging you to write more about board games, y’see.

Haven’t tried as many new ones this year as I would like, but I’ve quite enjoyed:

Shipyard (strategy)
Alea Jacta Est (light dice strategy)
Dixit (party)

SmallWorld has been fun in reasonable doses, but can veer into overkill territory pretty easily.

Then there’s Android, which is just frikkin’ nuts… no way to formulate strategy until you’ve played it 200 times and memorized all the ridiculous cards that can derail anybody at any time. Fun with a group that’s into it, though.
