Current favorites are:

- Ticket to Ride

- Shadows Over Camelot

- Settlers of Catan

We also play 'Traders of Genoa' (now called just 'Genoa') from time to time, and 'Drakkon'. I have many other games, including the anniversary edition of Axis & Allies but don't have the time to play many of those games.

The game I would love to play that I own is 'Antike' -- I've bought it after playing just once but haven't managed to pull it out with the regular group. Usually there is at least on game of Ticket to Ride on any given boardgame night.

Oh... and I have FINALLY played in a game of Shadows Over Camelot (4 player game) where we actually WON.

Nothing at the moment, unfortunately.

Played a mean game of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" with my daughter last week. It was damn hard getting all the necessary candy canes!!

I am teaching my son to play HeroQuest. Other than that, I really do not play too many board games.

Ditto that A&A Pacific 1940. Don't have it yet, but am hoping to spare 75-100 dollars to get it. Loved the old Pacific from the 90's. Probably the best of the A&A spin-off games.

Battlestar Galactica. It's captures the show (before it went off of the rails) perfectly.

I tried Munchkin Quest last night, but not the expansion for it. Seemed an OK game, but probably much more fun with more than 2 players.

Definately! The fun level goes up exponentially with the number of players.

I've been playing CarWars the card game. It's fun, fast to master, and I've got about a dozen people hooked on it since the holidays.

Over the holidays, the games I played (board or otherwise) were OSRIC, Carcassonne, Pandemic, and Pit. Great times, all around.

When my buddy and I get together, we usually play Risk: Godswar or Heroscape. The Mrs. and I don't play games together anymore. We are both competative people and hate to lose to the other. Though I enjoy a good game of Scrabble and Chess every now and then.

+1 on the CarWars card game. Very fast and fun and last year I even got a full bird Colonel to play a few games while we were over in the desert and he enjoyed it.

Talisman 4th ed. revised. THis is such a great game and really fun to play! I have only played the 3rd and current ed. of Talisman, but not 1st or 2nd ed. I am leaning towards 4th ed. revised as being the best edition of the game, but 1st edition looks really awesome as well.

Has anyone played 1st ed. Talisman and can tell me what it was like compared to 4th ed. revised? I noticed 4th ed. revised has some D&D influence in terms of monsters while 3rd ed. was influenced by Warhammer.

Been playing a lot of RISK and Axis and Allies. I am not sure about the new A&A rules. I hate that they took away research (Though I put it back in), I'm not thrilled with the bard redraw either. It seems to have too much crammed together. My biggest gripe though is the new victory conditions. I have played three games since I bought it and all we did was trade cities back and forth.

Don't get me wrong, it is still a fun game but I think I like the old MB version better.

Never played Blood Bowl. I hear it is good. I have Battle Ball which I really need to play again.

There is a video game version of blood bowl and if you have the settings right, its very close to the board game.

Just got done playing two sessions of Zombies!!!

Five of us played... first game was just the normal game. The second game we added in the Mall Walkers expansion. Same person won both games... and it wasn't me
We had a blast as always... I love that game.

I ordered Thunderstone and hope to get to play it soon. Its very close to a game that I love, Dominion, but has a dungeon delving element to it and fighting monsters, so its a win-win por moi.
