Board games. Whenever someone suggests playing one, I visibly groan. It's not that I don't like laying board games, it's just the set up, the length of time they take to play. It all seems so tedious. But here's the strange part -- once I'm actually playing the games, I have a complete blast. Let's talk about board games: our favourites, recommendations, etc. Let's do this!
It's been a while but our family went through a fairly extensive Settlers of Catan obsession. I really loved it. Loved it. But the expansions, like the Seafarers one, just totally ruined the balance of the game for me. It became more about luck than strategy and pre-planning and that sucked.
On the whole, however, I'm a big board game noob. I don't play many and I'm not really aware of what the current big fashionable games are.
