I know there are some people here who play board games, video games, role-playing games, or even those things where people go out in real life and, like, throw and hit things on a field.
Tell us about your favorite games!
As Thomas knows, my gaming group has been on a Terraforming Mars kick lately -- that is a great board game.
With my daughter I have been playing Lego Harry Potter. The only sports I watch is during the World Cup (go Netherlands!) or Olympics.
What about you?
Hmm, most favorite board game, difficult... There are so many...
I can't nominate just one, here is my list:
- Time Stories (great adventure game on a board)
- Robo Rally (a classic one, the more you are, the more chaos on the board and much more fun)
- Mechs vs Minions (the high-class Robo rally based in the League of Legends - World - so much miniatures and high quality game components, I've never seen a game that is soooo awesome designed and the gameplay is also great. Sold directly from the makers of League of Legends online game)
- Roll for the Galaxy (build your own galaxy using dices)
- Terraforming Mars (Monique already mentioned that)
- King of Tokyo (funny monster bashing dice game)
- Pandemic Legacy (fantastic story, play 12 months and heal the world)
- Splendor (awesome card game)
- Ticket to Ride (all time favorite - everybody loves this)
- Robinson Crusoe (survive on a lonesome island, heavy stuff, not easy to win, you play as a team against the game)
- Scythe (so awesome illustrations, one of the best I've ever seen, and the game is also great)
- Dominion (This was one of the first deck builder games and is still one of my favorites)
- Tzolkin (Worker Placement Game with big wheels on the board, great mechanisms, great game)
- Mice and Mystics (Storytelling adventure board game, survive adventures as little mice, fight against rats, cats, spiders, solve riddles - great story, great illustrations, a lot of fun)
- Stone Age (another classic worker placement game in a Stone Age World)
- Dead of Winter (survive the zombie apocalypse as a team of survivors, hard stuff, sometimes nightmarish, but great gameplay)
- Hit z Road - another zombie game, much easier, dice game, won prices for its graphical design)
- Battlestar Galactica (based on the TV series, but regardless of that, it is really a great game of intrigues and teamwork, someone is a traitor but until the middle of the game, not even the traitor knows that he is)
- Photosynthesis (new one this year, never seen so nice trees on a game and the gameplay is also great)
There are so many more, but I'll stop now, before this is becoming an article on its own :-)
This is a difficult question, but I'll try to sum it up to just a few:
- The Legend of Zelda
- Point and click games, like the Day of the Tentacle or Sam and Max
- Graphic adventures or Mystery solving games like Hotel Dusk or Ace Attorney/Phonenix Wright for the Nintendo DS.
- And for board games, the Munchkin series is a lot of fun!
This said, I'm not a gamer either, but when I spend time playing those are probably the games I'm doing :)
