I'm talking about games with boards/cards/miniatures in which you have to sit across a table from other humans and look them in the eye as you roll dice in order to proclaim dominance over them. Either that or just have a good time?

    catan is excellent for getting people into non-monopoly board games but if you play it too much you run the risk of a few people getting hypercompetitive and therefore furious. (this can also be kind of fun in its own way)

    It is an interesting game.

    But you also have to realize that dice rolls do not want you to win this game no matter how good your city placement is.

    Holy shit. I had no idea what to expect with this thread, and then all of the pictures showed up at once and I almost soiled myself in surprise.

    I will play anyone a game of WH40k. I'm down with the table top role playing as well I suppose.

    Good OP.

    I'm wondering if people would be down for a WH40k day at PAX this year. Might be something fun to do. Just a series of small 500 pt games.

    My roommate just got done bringing back Iron Dragons and Munchkin Cthulu.

    I will play the shit out of both eventually. Just as soon as I'm done with Total War: Shogun. Which might not be for a while.

    Oh how to explain Robo Rally...

    It's just, well you got this factory floor, and everyone has a robot to control with program cards, and there's lasers and conveyor belts and pits and pushers and crushers... and it's a race.

    Played Nightfall the other day.

    It is very much a deckbuilding game requiring lots of comboing with other cards in your deck and it's awesome.

    Also OP needs more Dark Heresy.

    Shadowrun was the first RPG that I ever legitimately played. Had the ADnD books first, just no friends.

    The Sixth World is awesome atmosphere, built around a crap system.

    My board game friends introduced me to a card game called Phase 10. Basically every round theres a set of cards you need to move on and for every card you have left at the end of a round you get points, its somewhat complicated and they told me I would lose a few games and eventually catch on.

    I got a perfect game on my first play simply out of luck. We don't play Phase 10 anymore.

    Same. But I was like, 6 or so at the time, so I barely remember it, and probably didn't contribute much to the group.
