What boardgames are you playing?

Postby Fledge » Tue Oct 05, 2010 10:44 pm

Let's start keeping track of what games we, as a community, are playing regularly. Be specific. Fill us in on the name of the game, the setting, and how many people were playing. Card games are also perfectly acceptable, as are any other pulp based, non-roleplaying game

Think of this as a "What did you play last weekend?" sort of thread.

I've gotten the chance to game recently, so I'll start us off.

Saturday, I broke out my copy of Shadows Over Camelot and convinced a few of my roommates, two people from my hall, and a friend who was visiting from out of town to try it out. It was the first non-Hasbro sort of game they had all ever played (minus one guy who I had introduced Pandemic to last year) and it was an overwhelming success.

I introduced the concept of the traitor to them, but secretly took the card out of the loyalty card deck beforehand to keep up the suspense, but eliminate the possibility of someone feeling lost. They also had a lot of fun with the "Never explicitly say what cards you have rule" by coming up with over the top ways around it which still technically broke the rule, but were too hilarious to shoot down. We started one game, got interrupted by another event, and played a second game all the way through to a resounding victory. All of them want to play again and were intrigued when I mentioned I had other similar games. I'm thinking that it might be worth investing in Last Night on Earth before Halloween now.

Magic: the Gathering and Summoner Wars are getting the most play amongst my friends currently.

Our group's casual gaming these days runs to Arkham Horror (kind of stretches the usability of "casual", but still less prep time than an RPG), Pandemic, and Red Dragon Inn (not a board game, but nice and quick).

We tried Last Night on Earth, and everyone absolutely hated it.
