Are you trying to find something worthwhile to do other than stare at another screen? That's how I got into modern board games. I would rather spend my time with great people playing great games than anything on TV. What kind of games? Well, in the past 10 years designer or modern board games have exploded on the tails of such games as Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride. There are now such a huge variety of games out there that scratch any itch you have but they have a few things in common. They offer the player meaningful decisions. Instead of 'roll-and-move' like the all too familiar Monopoly, these games give you choices allowing the players to play the game. These new games also make a grand effort to envelop you in their theme. If you enjoy meeting new people and thoughtful activities you will enjoy playing games with us.
