In like a lion, out like a lamb...
Let's play some meaty games to start March. I'd love to play an 18XX game. We could play a smaller game like 18AL or 18GA. Or we could play some Steam train games. Steam is great because there are different maps depending on the number of players and rules for a basic game and a standard game.
Here's a video overview of 18XX games by Board Games with Scott:
What's a meaty game? It's just more strategic than a typical, make your optimum move game. You may have to think a few turns ahead. It also may take longer to play.
Meaty games in my collection include:
Conquest of the Empire
Struggle of Empires
Princes of Florence
Age of Industry
Tigris and Euphrates
Through the Ages
Bring your favorites. Lighter games are fair game too. Everyone doesn't have the time or inclination to play a longer game. Sometimes I need a lighter game as a "palate cleaner" between the heavier games too.
Post what you'd like to play in the comments and we can refresh on the rules.
We'll have snacks and sodas and we love it when you bring some to share. Please park in our driveway or on our side of the street. The address will be emailed to those who say they are coming to our location about four miles from the Tower Game store in Suwanee, about three miles from Suwanee Town Center.
