Hey,

We've got a group of people pretty new to boardgames in general (myself kind of excluded) and we can't seem to decide what to play this wednesday. Not sure if this kind of thread is allowed, please lock if so, but i guessed its okay to ask advice.

The options are (since there are six of us)

Battlestar galactica (all expansions available) I've played this a lot so i know its fun, but i've played it a lot so i want to try something else

Twilight imperium Never played, desperate to try

Dust, going to play this later in the week anwyay so, also never played

Senji, really kinda wanna try this

Arkham horror, never played

Talisman This seems like it would be hilarious

and power grid.

So i guess the question is, which of these will be the most fun to play if i send out pdfs of the manuals but basically none of the players will have played any of these.

Also there is rum, so all of us will get slightly slushed as the evening goes on

You know who I fucking hate? Pony.

I don't know why, I just felt the need to say that.

    I've only played Twilight Imperium, but it is awesome. Just be prepared to spend a long time playing. There's a 10 turn limit, but that could still take 8-10 hours with new players.

    Yeah, I wouldn't pick Twilight Imperium until you guys have no plans for an entire weekend.

    Arkham Horror is fucking incredible though.

    Yeah one player dropped, so dust is out, i think we're down to BSG, Arkham and senji. Instead of talisman we're doing some actual d&d games and we thought ti only took like 4 hours.

    Talisman is pretty fun - it's similar to D&D but it's every man for themselves.
