So a friend and I were just discussing how we'd like to get into a collectible game that our group can play, but not of the same nature as games we have played before.
We used to play Magic (of course) but it gets very expensive and since the income levels are widely disparate, some people will be able to buy tons of cards and others will not.
We used to play Warmachine, Warhammer, etc, but fuck, I am so sick of miniatures and painting and setting up boards and making or faking terrain and so on, and I'm selling all that crap as soon as possible.
We've been playing boardgames but there's little customization, so things like Carcassonne and Settlers of Cataan, while excellent to play, get old after a while.
So are there any good games that are a) customizable b) externally balanced (point buy systems, etc) c) preferably cheap, that you guys could suggest?
I fucking hate you Canadians.
