Obviously I have ulterior motives because I'll be selling board games for bitcoins soon, but I'm also interested in what games you've found to be interesting. A brief non-exhaustive list of recent favorites for me:

  • The Manhattan Project - Minion Games
    A worker-placement game with some similarity to deck-building games like Dominion. Has a good amount of strategic tension, and a decent market mechanic. I'll be selling this one in June
    2-5 Players
  • Dominion
    If you haven't played this, you should find a friend who has it or buy it immediately. It's a deck-building card game where you play with 10 out of the 25 included card types forming a stock that you buy cards to build up your deck with,
    eventually purchasing victory point cards. It'll be a long time before I'll be able to have enough volume to sell this one
    2-4 Players
  • Drakon
    This is a currently out-of-print tile-laying dungeon crawl with a kind of 'programming a path' feel to it. It's a great game... several of my coworkers are addicted to it, and I may or may not be Wink
    2-6 Players
  • Doge
    This is a truly great partial-knowledge simultaneous staged reveal election game. The strategy is intense, and while there's
    relatively little luck involved, the fact that you don't know what your opponents are doing adds a lot of surprise.
    3-4 Players
  • 7 Wonders
    A multi-strategy victory point game with several different ways of scoring points that interact. Plays really quickly once you learn it, only 18 moves in the game and then you tally up score. Mechanic is card selection and passing decks to your neighbors, so there's tension between taking what you need and preventing your opponent from getting what they need.
    2-7 Players, but 2 player game uses a 'dummy' 3rd player, so more like 3-7

What are your favorites? Do you know of any small game shops that you would like to buy from with bitcoins? I'm looking to become a bitcoin-only reseller and could possibly work out an arrangement with them allowing you to get your board games with your preferred currency, hopefully even at a discount.

I'm selling great Minion Games like The Manhattan Project, Kingdom of Solomon and Venture Forth at 4% off retail starting June 2012. PM me or go to my thread in the Marketplace if you're interested.

For Settlers/Dominion/Carcassone etc., I do email gift cards on Amazon for a 5% fee. PM if you're interested.

I've contributed to that kickstarter and I plan on carrying the game when it comes out! Have you played it? I hear it's possible to with a print-and-play, but I haven't had a chance yet.

No, I haven't played it. Have you considered creating/inventing a new, or special edition, board game yourself? Something like Scrabble: The Voynich Manuscript Edition. (think of all those Monopoly Special Editions)

Does Dungeons and Dragons count as a board game? Wink

bump?

I buy at least one board game a year for Christmas (you know, being home a bunch) and am looking for some good recommendations to add to my list.

Voluntaryism- The belief that ALL human interactions should be free of force, fraud and coercion.
Taxation is Theft; War is Murder; Incarceration is Kidnapping; Spanking is Assault; Federal Reserve Notes are Counterfeiting
