Game Suggestions for a New Gamer?
Hey everyone! I was newly introduced to this community a little over a week ago and I'm loving it so far. A brief background into my board gaming history: Most of my experience has been with games like Codenames, Carcassonne, and a bunch of the popular, light party games like Apples to Apples, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Exploding Kittens, etc. The heaviest games I had gotten into were along the lines of Dominion and Catan, and I didn't give them too much of a chance in the rare times I played them.
Then a few months ago, @Sliddell11 had me try Betrayal at the House on the Hill for the first time with some other friends, and I totally loved it. It was my first exposure to an exploration game with light RPG elements. I got is as a gift and have been playing it every few weeks for months. Even more recently, @nealkfrank showed me Too Many Bones (the heaviest game I had played by far) and I had a blast. I can't wait to try it again.
In short, I think I've become hooked on board gaming. I've spent a while looking through the forums here, browsing BoardGameGeek, and compiling a list of games I want to try now. At the top of my list are Root, Wingspan, Spirit Island, Aeon's End, and Roll for the Galaxy. I'm finding that I'm really into games with RPG elements, dice, co-op or solo play options, and a lot of replayability. Any suggestions on other games I should look into?
TLDR: I recently got hooked on board gaming and I'm looking for suggestions on some new games to try. My current favorites are Betrayal at the House on the Hill and Too Many Bones, and I love RPG, dice, and co-op games. Suggestions?
