Lord Of The Rings Children's Game   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong

This is a great game for kids. Simple enough for anyone who can count to five, and the cool theme makes it easy to get kids to play; even boys who might otherwise think they're too cool. I have fun every time I play this, and despite a slight strategic advantage, sometimes I even lose.

Zombies!!! 2nd Edition (Director's Cut)   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
This game is pure chaos. Great fun to play, with loose rules and lots of cool miniatures to mess around with. The artwork and components are top-quality, with lots of film references and a tasteful amount of gore. The game is great out of the box, but the expansions add a lot of much-needed variety.

The Great Dalmuti   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
There have been a lot of games with similar game-play to The Great Dalmuti; from Dragonmaster to the popular drinking game P & A. This one is designed by Richard Garfield (of Magic fame) and is probably the best one of all. The artwork is very nice, and the rules are somewhat easier to follow than other incarnations. A great filler game.

Star Wars Pocketmodel Tcg Booster Pack   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
I love Star Wars. I bought this game with no expectations, knowing only that you punched cardboard ships out of cards--face it, that's a great idea. The game itself is surprisingly good. More rewarding than a CCG, and slightly less involving. Good for lunch tables or (in my case) ferry rides.

Super Munchkin   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
Munchkin is one of my favorite games, and this, all things considered, is my favorite Munchkin game. The whole style of game-play lends itself very well to the superhero genre, and there's plenty for them (and you) to make fun of, as well. Try this one out, it's one of the best games out there.

Munchkin Cthulhu   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
The works of HP Lovecraft are hilariously lampooned here, in what is probably the coolest Munchkin expansion to date. Lots of great new monsters to fight and treasures to collect. Lots of strong monsters and weak heroes make for a very difficult game, and sure enough, this is probably the hardest Munchkin set to play as a stand-alone game, however: It does mix very well thematically with Star Munchkin and Munchkin Bites. My favorite mix: Munchkin Cthulhu, Munchkin Cthulhu 2, Star Munchkin, and Super Munchkin! Super heroes vs. unspeakable evil in space.

If you're playing with the right people, Munchkin is the most fun you'll have on game night. The game itself is a light RPG played with cards. What makes it so interesting is its attitude. Players are encouraged (even in the rules) to swindle, betray, and trick each-other in an effort to come out on top. The cards themselves are hilarious, with over-the-top monsters, traps, and equipment. The best part, as far as I'm concerned, is the variety of the expansions. There are well over a dozen available, and all are fully interchangeable, so you could, if you were so inclined, have a game of Munchkin with super heroes, aliens, cowboys, and Cthulhu. Great fun to be had here, and a great bargain.

Lord Of The Rings: War Of The Ring   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
The best possible war game theme, for my tastes. Also, the best mechanics and components. I don't know what else to say about this game. It's a masterpiece. Long set-up (comparable to Arkham Horror) and the first play through can be pretty brutal in terms of constant rules consultation, but it's all worth it in the end. The most satisfying game-play experience available. No one with an adequate attention span should pass this game up--and there's no cheaper place to buy it than right here.

Guillotine   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
One of my favorite short games. I love the mechanics and artwork. The concept may not seem suitable for children, but the 'beheading' aspect isn't portrayed in a realistic way, and its historical significance takes the edge off the violence. It should be said, however, that there isn't a ton of strategy in this game. With the cards you're given, there's usually only one 'best' action. Still, it's great fun to pick up and play, and takes about one minute to learn. Can't go wrong with that!

Carcassonne: Traders & Builders Expansion   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
This is the only Carcassonne expanxion I always use. The tiles it adds are mostly useful in specific situations (for example, a tile with four roads, that all end in the middle) and it's a great thrill to draw them when they're needed. The new game-play components: the builder, pig, and the trade tiles--are interesting and inobtrustive. I sometimes omit the pig or trading rules, especially with new players, but I always use the builder because I love the idea. Highly recommended.

Carcassonne   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
One of the best games ever made. The mechanics are perfect, and it's so easy to teach, it's unbelievable. It may take players one whole game to understand certain aspects of the rules--such as farming--but games can be played in under an hour, so this isn't really a big deal. Generally regarded as a 'gateway' game, and for obvious reasons. In my group, it's the go-to filler game, either in-between games, or at the end of the night.

Arkham Horror Board Game   (View Game)
   Ryan Strong
My favorite game of all time (after Heroquest). Great atmosphere and mechanics. It's even been possible for me to get casual players into a more 'serious' game with this one. Mainly because it just looks so cool. Note that while it's technically playable one player, and tempting to do so, it's mind-bendingly difficult, and the long setup time makes it nowhere near worth it.
