Re: tabletop

I think I have the first warning signs of a possible addiction...

In a very short period of time Hubby and I have purchased:

Settlers of Catan
Munchkin Quest
Dominion
Carcassone
Pandemic
Castle Panic
Castle Panic (The Wizard's Tower)
Zombie Dice

We have been having a lot of fun with them so far! Munchkin Quest is a ton of silly fun, and Pandemic ROCKS! We just got the last 3 games today, so we look forward to more fun filled evenings!

...but we may have a problem...

Re: tabletop

Yes, we have to slow down so we can actually play (and get good at!) the games we have! As you said, space and $$ are issues as well.

We played Munchkin Quest with 2 friends and they went out and bought their own copy. I can't wait until we have the time to get together to play Pandemic.

My new mantra is going to have to be "slow down and learn some more rules...slow down and learn some more rules...

Just finished playing Agricola (2 player edition). That game should not be as much fun as it is!

Re: tabletop

Anyone been keeping up with the latest season of Tabletop?

I didn't think the racing game looked that fun. Resistance looked like it could be really fun though, as long as you have a good mix of people at the table. I think I'm going to buy King of Tokyo at some point and possibly Once Upon a Time as well, although I could see that game either being really interesting or a bit of a chore depending on the people involved.

Re: tabletop

I played Resistance with a group of people who didn't really understand the concept. I'm sure it would be a lot of fun with the right people.

Yeah, Hubby and I have King of Tokyo on our list as well. If you get it please let me know how you like it!

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! )
a LOT of these games i've seen for sale at Barnes & Noble

I haven't played it but it looks quite interesting and it has a good score on BoardGameGeek.

OMG is that Kingmaker? Haven't seen that for decades!

I used to play a lot of Car Wars, Awful Green Things from Outer Space, and Junta, along with a LOT of Risk.

Currently play Twilight Creation's Zombies and Midevil, also a keen wargamer with Warhammer 40K and Flames of War as my mains, and RPG Doctor Who and some D6 (currently working on a pet project of a D6 game in the Aliens universe - fingers crossed will someday have the ability to pay the licence to Fox and get it published!).

We have ourselves a winner!

I have been trying to get a round of car wars in one of these weekends soon. We have played just tons of Junta. If you like Risk see if you an find Supremacy. It's like Risk with nukes and money.

Hmm, seem to remember my Supremacy boards always had more mushrooms on it!
