I'm far too competitive when it comes to Monopoly, and gets so annoying when you land on other people's streets but they never land on yours. In Sixth Form (school 16-18 here in the UK) we used to play a card game called Shit Head which is pretty addictive.

I've recently had a interest in playing Risk although the LotR version appeals a lot more. That and Warhammer. I've started collecting at various times but never actually played a game. It looks like loads of fun though.

I like to play chess , my international rating is 1850 --> compare best in the world has 2800

That's a decent rating, well done. How long have you been playing? I used to play online for fun and I had a rating there of about 1000 - and they say online ratings are about 100 points higher than in real tournament play. I really didn't stand a chance against anyone with an online rating over 1300, so a real rating of 1850 is hard for me to comprehend!
I started when I was 7 or 8 years young but I quit playing for many years and started again about when I was 22
If you really want to get better you have to study openings,middle game variations and positions , and end game ---> this is very easy to say , I have read over 100 different book about chess tactics and strategy and I'm still confuced


I used to play chess a lot with me dad when I was young but I just discovered it again and started playing. It's a fascinating game once you get into it, if there was no power for TV and computer games etc. I'd be quite happy playing chess instead. I've just started studying openings but there's a lot to take in.

I just played Pandemic last night. It's a great cooperative game; a little complicated but very easy to learn in a few rounds. All players select a role with special abilities and work together to contain, treat and cure four different diseases around the world before there are too many outbreaks.

I got it for Christmas. Awesome game, really clever design. I like how simple it is - there's a bunch of stuff you need to remember to do each round, but like you said it's really easy to learn. Those few simple, elegant rules work really well to make every game different, allow for several strategies, and most imortantly, create a real sense of everything going wrong in your desperate struggle to save the world. Taking the infection discard pile and shuffling it back on top the draw pile after each Epidemic is genius, sadistic design.

I don't have very much experience with co-op games, though, so I may be biased. I really want to get Shadows Over Camelot one day, and it would be nice to have a regular gaming group to play some Arkham Horror with.

Board games are awesome, it's nice that nowadays there are well-designed games for adults. King of Tokyo, Citadels, Bohnanza, and Settlers of Catan are some of my favorites. Ticket to Ride is pretty good too, especially with people not too into complex games. Saw Munchkin mentioned above, though: fucking overrated. It's hilarious the first few times, but the design is too simple to stay interesting for long. The randomness is part of the fun, but it's only amusing for so long.

"Elegant" is a great way to describe the mechanics of this game as they create an authentic experience. That being said, the game is very difficult to win even when playing with fewer epidemic cards. If you like Pandemic and want to try something kind-of similar, have a go at Freedom: The Underground Railroad. http://www.amazon.com/Academy-Games-AYG-5401-Freedom/dp/B00HCHRGNI It's a bit more complex, but is also a very well designed co-op game.

I agree with you about Munchkin. It's funny and cute but gets boring, and frankly, annoying.

You really should get a gaming group together! It can be difficult to find people who are interested and dedicated to meeting regularly, but it's really awesome when you get a good group. Mine meets every Friday for board/card games. They also do role playing on Thursday but I haven't really done that, although I did agree to play Dread next week. A few of those guys also go to the gaming convention in Indianapolis annually and bring back all sorts of great new games.

Getting into Dungeons & Dragons lately. Already writing my own campaign as well as playing campaigns with friends. Can't believe I didn't get into this sooner. It feels like I was born to play and write this stuff. Here's a map for the world in which my first campaign takes place that I drew a few days ago:

I used to play D&D with my friends till we realized there are too much rules and bureaucracy, so we thought: hey, why not invent 'our' own status and battle system and oversimplify the battles?

Then the games started going far smoothier

Played D&D last night. A party of three (me, the wife and a friend) and another friend as DM. 5e rules. I played a fromer apprentice of The King's Royal Huntsmen and a rogue , my wife played a half-orc sorcerer and my friend was an annoying little gnome bard. We all woke up in a jail run by goblins and after 4,5 h, finally made our way out, almost all of us nearly getting killed in the process. It was my "rousing speech" that gave my companions the necessary temporary HP to make it out alive. And when it came time to roll HP for the next lvl, I rolled a goddamn 1. So much for luck. Was fun though

Personally, I prefer to create and participate in campaigns with more NPC and more interesting NPC and a heavy emphasis on political intrigue and ... err... romantic stuff... but it was my friends first time DMing for us, so it was still pretty great.
