tabletop / board games
« on: May 22, 2013, 09:21 AM »
Anyone got a good suggestion for a tabletop or board game for 3 players that is fun and won't necessarily take multiple hours to learn?  I usually play RISK 2210 or Star Trek CCG( the old card game by Decipher) with my buddies but I'm looking for something else to suggest.  I've heard there is an X-Wing miniatures game that seems kinda popular, any thoughts?

Games of Thrones! Plays out similar to RISK, just watch this...

I also like this game ( http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2471/zombies ). Its cheap, its fucking fun, and its fast to learn and play through. Its also better for smaller groups than say Game of Thrones.

Zombicide is hands down the best zombie board game I've played. Quick, simple, super fun.

It's 100% co-op survival. You and your friends are playing against the board. Lots of replayability, and you won't end up hating each other by the end of it since you're all on the same team.

Finding a theme you like, and finding a good game is one way to go.

Other games I've really enjoyed:

Settlers of Catan - Build and expand on a limited size board (an island) with high competition for resources
Agricola - Farming/economics game. Grow your family while keeping everyone fed.
Pandemic - Save the world from a deadly outbreak. Research cures, fight the spread in time before everyone is infected
Battlestar Galactica - Only if you all have seen the tv series. Guess who is/isn't the cylon infiltrators. Try to get to earth before the cylons reveal themselves and take over.

I've played Munchkin with the twins who are currently 7, so I would say it fits in the easy to learn category. 3-6 players, extremely portable.

+1 for Pandemic
The Resistance is brilliant but you need at least 5 players.
Happiness is when you play a game so well that people call you a hacker.

There are two types of people in the world, those who can extrapolate from incomplete information.

One game that I've played on and off for years that is relatively easy to learn but difficult to master is Axis & Allies.

The most recent version I bought: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=ah/prod/axisanniv
