Can we get a Board Game subforum?

Talk about anything here. Post lifespan is 1 year.

I know others on here share the same passion for tabletop gaming that I have, and we've all discussed it here and there in other threads, but it never went past that. So, since I never seemed to find an existing sub-forum about this in particular, here we are.

General discussion about boardgames in particular, ones you enjoy OR stay away from, recommendations for others of games you enjoy, upcoming games, homebrew games (if you are building one, starting a kickstarter, etc), looking to trade games or sell some, and general nonsense!

Away we go. :pint:

Great idea!

I used to play a variety of tabletop games but I pretty much only play Dominion these days (when I actually have time to get a game in).

Fantastic idea!! I love tabletop games, and am excited to find some new ones. :clap: My last obsession was Zombies!!! My friends and I had some pretty epic games with the expansions and some homebrewed rules.

Really excited to see you guys chiming in on your usual games! I have a long list of favorites and will try to post it here later, but for now, anyone else on here a member at boardgamegeek? If so, you can find me on there here:

About to head out for this week's gaming session (well, this month really, since its been so hectic). Anyways, on the agenda for tonight, we are focusing on playing only games that our newest member has yet to play. This list includes...

Pandemic (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/30549/pandemic)
Forbidden Island (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/6524 ... den-island)
Dominion (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36218/dominion)
For Sale (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/172/for-sale)
Castle Panic (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/43443/castle-panic)
Guillotine (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/116/guillotine)
Unspeakable Words (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2430 ... able-words)
Citadels (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/478/citadels)
And, if we have time, a round of Catan. We have all played it (of course, who hasn't by now), but I am really wanting to use my newly acquired Catan boards in an actual game.

Will post a pic if I remember to (and if I'm not too drunk by the end of it)!

I didn't like pandemic very much. But dominion is great, hard to keep up with all the expansions that they have now.

This is what got my friends and I started on Board Games. It's a classic.

Lately we've been playing a lot of Dominion, Citadels, Power Grid, Pandemic and Settlers of Catan. My friend just bought Stone Age, but we haven't had a chance to try it yet.

So tonight's play session ended up being slightly different than expected, still had fun of course!

Selection for the night (at a buddy's place):
Image

First round, Pandemic (we lost on the last turn, ran out of draw pile cards. There are lots of ways to lose, only 1 way to win this game):
Image

Second round, Betrayal at the House on the Hill (new edition). Played this one in honor of tomorrow, always a fun scooby doo game.
Image

Third and final round, Castle Panic. Always a fun, simple co-op game. And its fun in a sense that everyone wins if you win (but, one person wins over everyone else, so really, do you all win?)
Image

All in all, fun times!

anybody ever play this on xbox live? if so, how is it?

I enjoy a good board game now and then but none of my friends do, so I end up playing monopoly on xbox most of the time.
