One of my cousin's does the baseball version. He has done whole seasons of games from the 1960's. I never got why but he is disabled and has a lot of time on his hands, plus he grew up with the game.

I find it more disturbing that he watches/listens to every minute of every White Sox baseball season(s). That is a big commitment.

As the parent of 10 and 14 year olds you will find this a mixed blessing. How qucikly they discover the net, the tools, the ideas they put together etc. are really cool and will impress the heck out of you. The downside it brings the world to them instead of them going out and discovering the world. They don't have to exercise creativity as moch because it is all served to them. Put a time limit on it and it will be fine. An IT friend of mine said the amount of time he let his kids disappear into electronics ruined his kids. Lazy parenting yes, but the message is limit the binary digit time, it's no the real world and everyone will be fine.

The internet, ipads, itouch's, minecraft are the Elvis swivel hips for our generation.

I still love playing some of the old classics. I really love the ones that make you think quite a bit. My favorite top 5 old games are:

Mastermind


Othello


Scrabble


Backgammon


And the #1 board game for ever and always will be CHESS
Damn, forgot about Othello, that game was awesome. I don't think I ever actually tried playing Mastermind but had fun just reading the cards and trying to answer them. Some of them are hilariously stupid or impossible.

Haven't seen Scattegories in here yet. That might be my favorite. Great thinking game that leads to some pretty awesome arguments as well.

Here are some tips:

1. Play the hand you're dealt. If you can buy something now with the cards you have, but can also wait and hope you'll get something else, don't. Just buy what you can right then.

2. Try and trade with players, but make sure it is equitable. Don't sell the farm for one card unless it's really going to help you.

3. Avoid pissing matches for the longest road. Roads provide no resources. Towns and cities provide resources.

4. Buy development cards. Even if they are mostly knights, having the largest army is 2 points.

5. Early in the game either try to have a settlement touching all resources, or try and monopolize one resource and build a port for that resource. That will help you get what you want.
In a 6 player game, using these tips, I came in 6th.

Dead last.

Thanks.

Oh so it's MY fault? I'd have to see how you played. It was your first time so I'm guessing it wasn't everyone else's right? Did you guys play with any expansions? And how did the winner, win?

Played Catan with girls tonight. Other popular ones in my house right now are Mastermind, Clue and Blokus. Been trying to con them into trying one of my Avalon Hill games. Maybe Acquire?

Also - if you ever find yourself in DC there is a great bar call The Board Room in DuPont Circle that is dedicated to board games. Very popular.

Table Top RP type games with board game format are much fun and with much less time investment than full blown TTPRGs:

Castle Ravenloft -- Basically Dungeons and Dragons super light. Similar rules, self contained games (i.e. one hour-ish). Cooperative multi-play.

A similar game with more of an open ended format but can be board game style is Savage Worlds:

@Fedaykin: Don't get me started on the D&D "edition wars." These things make sports rivalries look tame by comparison.

Hell yeah it was your fault! At least that's what I'm telling myself to smooth my fragile ego

No expansions other than the additional players. The 3 girls all cooperated and were as helpful to anyone as could be, all 3 of us guys were conniving and trying to benefit ourselves the most. Of course the gals all did awesome. Everyone other than my wife and myself had played before. Ultimately it was the longest road and turning settlements into cities that put the winner over the top.

I underestimated the importance of the higher rolled numbers. I placed my developments where they were surrounded by a good variety of resources, but they were all at numbers that had a lower chance of being rolled. That's what really did me in.

There is a new 2 player game out called Agricola. Best way to describe it is a combo between Carcassonne, Canton, and Yahtzee. 25 to 30 minutes. Very strategy weighted. The best parr is you have to use completely different strategies on every game. 4.5 out of 5 stars. There is a multi-player version I have not played.http://www.orangemane.com/BB/attachm...1&d=1395598826

Where is the younger generation of omane tailgaters?! Back in the day we had halfway naked chicks dancing on the bus, jello shots, pig roasts and burning rival gear, mobile hot tubs, and security trying to contain us!. Next year it's going to be old married men playing board games drinking juice! Kaylore glad you got to experience a little chaos from back in the day! *Excuse me while I go change the babies diaper*

Yeah you can't build around a bunch of 2's and 3's and think you're going to get anywhere.

I think Agricola and Starship of Catan are two of my favorite 2 person games. It's been out since 2007, so it's nearing a decade since release. In board game geek terms, that's not that new. In relation to most of the general populace that believe Monopoly is a good game, I suppose it is new.

Our game guys said this was new . He had to order it. He said that he can't keep it in stock. This is a new version or something like that. Does the 07 version look like that ? I don't think the guy would lie. Its a pretty cool place.
" Agricola All Creatures big and small "
Release date 2012 but I think he said that it just got released in the states.

Ah, Agricola All Creatures big and small is a spin-off of the original Argicola game.

I like Blood Bowl too combines football and Fantasy :-)

Recently i supported some projects on Spiele-Offenive.de which cooperates sometimes with kickstarter too.

Anyone ever played Resistance?

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/41114/the-resistance

That's a great game if you have 6 or more. Goes really quickly and is awesome to play with people you are close with or people you don't know at all.
