Oh, Settlers. So many people's gateway game, when there are so many better ones out there. Personally, my gateway game of choice has become Ticket to Ride (specifically the Europe version, as the Station mechanic makes it more friendly to new gamers), but my favorite mechanic overall is currently Worker Placement. Agricola is my favorite WP game, followed in no particular order by Le Havre, Ora et Labora and Village. Other current favorites include Eclipse, 7 Wonders, and Eminent Domain.
Over 200! Everything from Set and Xactica to Fist of Dragonstones to Agricola to Eclipse to San Marco to Blokus.
I was looking for information about gaming at the Crazy Mocha in Squirrel Hill and one of the Google links was to this group.
I've been playing board, card and role-playing games for approximately 30 years. I am a member of the North Coast Gamers and have attended a couple of their meetups. Looking forward to meeting everyone and sitting across a table from you!
Good group. Will go again schedule depending.
