Hi, I've just discovered your group exists. I love playing new games and older favourites, though pretty much everything pre-Catan is often flawed. I prefer shorter, strategic Eurogames to epic all-dayers, with a few exceptions. Favourites include Dominion, Waterdeep, Thunderstone, Ticket To Ride, Libertalia, T'zolkin, Kingdom Builder, Hanabi, Dungeon Lords, Citadels... I think Agricola and Puerto Rico are overrated but I'll play them. Turn-offs: CCGs, wargames, Diplomacy (been there, lost friends!), Monopoly (obvs).
I joined meetup because I heard about London On Board, but you guys are much closer.
So many I'd like to try out. List of favourites above.
I've been a gamer all my life - role-playing, board games, computer games, whatever is going. For the last 20 years or so I've been into Eurogames. Own upwards of 200, often go to Essen, etc. Represented UK at Catan World Champs.
