tabletop

I am a huge board gamer, not monopaly, i mean like small world, ticket to ride, and erc. I was wondering if anyone else plays board games. I know star trek catan came out last year and was pretty big hit. Its an awesome version of catan, changes the whole game in complex way. im huge fan of playing board game apps too. Anyone else enjoy board games.

I play board games about once a week and the same goes for table top RPGing.

We get in quite a bit of Twilight Imperium.

Re: tabletop

I love board games. I've recently joined a meetup group that meets once a week and another that meets once a month. I tend to prefer resource/business management games (Agricola, Stone Age, Ticket to Ride, Railways of the World, etc.), but I'll play pretty much anything that comes with a board. Except Monopoly or Risk.

I'm not into RPGs though. I think I would enjoy a tabletop RPG if I had the right group, but I very strongly lean towards the gamist playstyle. It's hard to find others that share the same style.

Re: tabletop

My husband and I are just starting to get into board games again after a long absence. We enjoy Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Carcassonne, and we just picked up Munchkin Quest.

Some posters in Misc recommended Tabletop to me...and I think I am becoming hooked! I am looking forward to getting more games for game nights with friends.

Re: tabletop

Tabletop is a good spot to go for games. Another good youtube show to watch is watcheditplayed. They are very indepth though unlike tabletop most games are a few videos. They have done a bunch of games like 7 wonders, small world, takiado, and currently doing belfort. They did others too only ones I could remember.

Re: tabletop

I enjoy board games, and wish I cpuld play them more often. Not sure about my favorites, but you have mentioned a few good one. I played Star Trek Catan once. but since everyone but I played for the first time we didn't really use the rule perks all that much. Also, the game was in german. But they seemed to add anmother dimension to the game.

Re: tabletop

If you dont use the rules perk, its just catan with star trek labeling. Nothing like building roads and settlements for next to nothing, or getting a random resource if 7 is rolled.

Re: tabletop

I play board games regularly with a few friends, and love tabletop! We've played quite a few games from there, but at the moment our most played games are Game of Thrones, Catan, Monopoly City, Dixit (love that game so much) and The Walking Dead (the one based on the comics, not the tv show). I'd love to get the Star Trek version of Catan.

We also want to try Munchkin and Smallword, although the latter is pretty expensive.

Re: tabletop

small world is definitely worth the price of admission. Munchkin is a lot of fun, it's really easy to get nontabletopers to play also. I have the cuthlu, zombies, space, pirates, and superhero munchkins. They used to get a ton of play time but since we started gaming more they seem to take up a lot of dust. Me and the wife get games of small world in while the baby is sleeping and when he goes to bed at night so that gets a ton of playing time for me anyway.

Re: tabletop

I have to ask, where do people usually go to find some of these games (other than online)? The big stores like Walmart and Target usually only have the old boring standards like Monopoly, Life, etc.

Although we do have Carcassonne and Monty Python Fluxx, and we enjoy playing those. (Well, we enjoy them when we can convince the kids not to take everything personally! )

Re: tabletop

I'm not into table top gaming that much, though I would certainly be more open to it if I had a good group of people to game with. I love watching Tabletop though. I'm so glad it came back for another season.

The wealthy of expansions is something which puts us off actually. MY friends are the type that feel they have to get everything associated with something they love. It may fall to me to buy it.

Mostly online, but we have a chain of shops called Forbidden Planet. After Tabletop gained popularity we noticed the board games they played started appearing in Forbidden Planet.
