    What games might be on the play list for tomorrow? I'm looking to learn Mage Knight Board Game, Thunderstone, Descent, Age of Empires III, Arkham Horror, Ghost Stories. Really the only game, besides the typical classics that everyone played as a kid, that I play is Dominion but I'd really like to expand my gaming knowledge.

      Eric, if you want to try out MK, you should speak with Japhet. He organizes fairly regular gatherings to play that game. I am thinking about running a Descent campaign at the monthly Salem gatherings. If you haven't checked out the Salem group, you should. AoEIII is often in my bag, so it gets a fair amount of play. I love AH, but you need to play it with an experienced group or it drags interminably.

      I figured out the issue was in the application I use to access BGG. When a search term is typed, its preliminary results do not include multiple games with the same name. (There is an old unrelated game named Trains.) Only when the Search button is tapped does it show complete results.

      I use a BGG app for the iPhone. It isn't hard to find Trains on the app, but there are some trickier games. If a game has a lot of expansions, sometimes the base game doesn't make the list. The other tricky bit is when a game gets renamed (e.g. Age of Empires III). Overall, I like it better than the other BGG app that I tried out.

    Sorry, but I realized I have to do Christmas stuff. Another time would be great.

    I'm not familiar with these games- like to play bridge, scrabble and trivia. I look forward to learn some new ones.
