I'll have to toss in:
Fav game remains Citadels. What a beautiful piece of work - simplicity + depth of play in a single package.
The game I bought the wife at GenCon is Telestrations - a combination of Pictionary and the Telephone Game - and it is utterly awesome. Like Citadels, it's at its best with 8 players.
For nostalgia, I hauled my copy of Talisman 2nd edition (with 3 expansions!) but couldn't find anyone who wanted to invest the time. I do love that game - best time you'll ever have while ruining your friendships
As for the rest of the collection...Race for the Galaxy I like, but the spouse is not so crazy about it
Pandemic is OK, but still hasn't blown me away. Imperium Galactica is the ultimate sci-fi heartbreaker; I wanted to like it so much
. Munchkin's way too much of a grind, especially with expansions involved. Betrayal at House on the Hill remains fantastic - and I heard is finally getting a reprint!
I also wanted to ask y'alls opinion - has anyone played Chaos in the Old World? I'm keenly interested in that one...
