Re: [TheBBG] What games do you play?

Dominion is all cards.  Some of the cards utilize tokens and coins but it is basically a deck building game.  There are 7 or 8 expansions; I had to buy a second case to fit all the expansions.  You start with 7 $1 cards and 3 filler cards and use the cards to buy higher denomination money cards ($2, $3, $5) and action cards that let you draw more cards, buy cards for less, pop out money for you to use, curse other players, make other players discard some cards, etc.

How does Dominion work. I've seen alot of people playing it.
 
Is it Cards only? I tend to shy away from those after experiences with Magic the Gathering, although Munchkin somewhat restored my faith. I have the Back to the Future (similar Chrononauts) and Monty Python Flux now.

For future reference, here is a definitive guid to applying the "Ameritrash" or "Eurogame" label to any particular game:

Also, based on your list, you should proudly call yourself an Ameritrash gamer!


Based on my BoardGameGeek ratings, my top five games are:

  Dominion
  Puerto Rico
  Race for the Galaxy
  Terra Mystica
  7 Wonders

I would call myself a Eurogamer

I still don't understand the difference between Ameritrash and Euro, but I know what I like, which is primarily, but not limited to, thematic games with a coop or semi-cooperative mechanic.
 
Some of my current favorites;
Munchkin (Any version, all fun)
Small World
Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game
Battlestar Galactica
Ticket to Ride (good game to play with the straights)
D&D Adventure System
 
What do you guys like to play?
