I'm currently a huge fan of "Defenders of the Realm", a cooperative fantasy adventure game. I also love "A Touch of Evil" and "Lord of the Rings" for similar reasons (and "Vanished Planet" sneaks in there as a guilty pleasure too). I came to Eurogaming via "Carcassonne" and "Settlers of Catan" and still love those (and, in the case of Catan, the board, card AND dice versions). "Lord of the Rings: RISK", "Return of the Heros", "Dungeonquest" and "Kill Doctor Lucky" are also great fun. And I love the silliness of card games like "James Earnst's Totally Renamed Spy Game" and "Star Fluxx" and the like. I own too many games... and yet not enough :-). I keep a wish-list of "Board Game - WANTS!" here - http://www.pinterest.com/elucid8/board-game-wants/
I've been a big fan of 'themed' board games and Euro-games for a few years now. I love cooperatives games and quirky ideas too. I never feel like I play often enough...
