I just found out about Yetisburg. Civil War game that takes place in Gettysburg but fought with Yetis.

Also, a new Risk game is coming out soon.

I have never played Risk, but I grew up playing Axis and Allies. A Canadian workmate of mine forced me to come to his house to play Axis and Allies recently, and I had a great time. He also taught me how to play Magic The Gathering - not so great, but still better than I thought.

I would get into any board game I think.

I want to buy myself a replica set of the Lewis Chessmen. For christmas. An expensive set, too. My girlfriend is from Lewis.

I also want to get a copy of paranoia. I've never played it but it sounds fantastic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paranoi...e-playing_game)

Intended as a spoof on other RPGs, the Paranoia rulebook is unique in a number of ways. For example, in earlier versions of Paranoia, the entire chapter on rules is labeled 'optional', and player knowledge of the rules is treasonous (treason, of course, being punishable by summary execution).

I always got stuck with board games that were kick ass but hard-to-find now, like...

Hero Quest (i've had no less than 3 copies of this over 15 years.)
Tornado Taz
Back Off, Buzzard!
Pass The Pigs (I'm sure this one's still in print but it's great!)
Monopoly Jr.
1313 Dead End Drive (The Original with the mean-mugging detective and the rules that made no sense.)
One that had a bunch of adventurers collecting a jewel from a big tiki's mouth.
Some other board game that had six knights and two worlds, one on each side of the mat. Real awkward, and barely made sense.

Donkey Kong had a board game.

Incidentally, I think that site may have been out-competed by I-mockery. It's natural selection, people.

1313 Dead End drive was the bomb.

The board game with the six knights I believe is Key to the Kingdom. Where you have you go through a whirlpool to get to the other map. One of my favs, I still have a copy of it.

Fireball Island looks more in-tense than camping. I want that!

I don't think anyone would have gotten the pun if I had spelled intense correctly.

I got it and lol'd. Fireball Island is a fucking awesome board game. Also, I don't know if Mr. Game Show qualifies as a "board game", but they need to bring that shit back too.

EDIT: Somebody here has got to remember this. I still have mine but he doesn't work for shit anymore

Let me show you one of my personal favorites as I am an eager Boardgame player or at least try to be...finding people who actually LIKE boardgames is pretty hard.



Excellent game from my favorite "Universe" and it looks the way a boardgame has to look like:



Tons or cardboard-clips, cards and stuff lying around and the whole thing takes 3-4 hours to complete...that´s my kind of game.

Pac-man: I found out my friend has a copy of Fireball Island, might play it next week sometime. I don't remember the Mr. Game Show though. It looks pretty out there.

OxBlood: This game looks really nice, haven't heard of it before though. Any board game that takes 4 hrs to play though count me in. It is really hard to find enough people to play them regularly though.

Sam: It seems the cost on a lot of games is awful. I've been trying to get a copy of Atmosfear for a while but it's still $50. For now we're settling on still having of copy of Nightmare: Video Board Game.

i've got the paranoia xp rulebook, and even though i've never played it with anyone just reading it was pretty fun, the sense of humor is fantastic

What? 120$? Letīs see...that would be about 93€. I think I paid about 40€ for it, 51$. A pretty fair price for such a massive thing.

And concerning Hero Quest, guess what I bought not long ago for about 20 bucks. Hehe. Oh and I love to buy things in $, saves me quite a bit of money.

Funfact about Star Quest, the 40k Version of Hero Quest (donīt know if it has the same name in the US): All weapons have been re-written into non-lethal ones in the german version.



And the next game:





Nice too but more of the fantasy-kind. Also 50 Bucks
