Congrats on your first post!

I tend to like medium-heavy euros that take around 90 minutes.

Thank you Inf1n1ty! Like R0land above, is there a good medium-heavy euro you're fond of?

A couple that have been my favorites for a while are

Newer ones on my list are

Concordia I've played, that is a good one since I love the ancient history theme (it reminded me a bit of Civilization, one of my favorite games). The Mayan Calendar game I am going to have to check out since that is also a theme I would enjoy.

Yay to your first post!  Love to see this site adding new people.

For me I'm pretty agnostic but I tend to prefer medium weight euros in the 2 hour range.

Thanks Roland! Euros are a good choice, I might go lighter but is there a game you have in mind that you really like?

I think my favourite euro would be Concordia on the medium side and Brass: Birmingham to go a bit heavier.  They are both really great games that I would play anytime!

Another vote for Concordia! It is a great game so deserves more mention. I'm not familiar with Brass: Birmingham, I'll have to look that one up.

I have been really enjoying Deck builders for the last few years. There's a lot of fun ones like Dominion 2nd EditionAscension: Deckbuilding Game, and Tim Fowers Paperback - The Card Game.

Dominion and Ascension are good games, fan of both. How about Guild Hall? Have you tried that one?

I haven't even heard of it. I'll have to check it out! What do you like about it?

It's a cool game where you try to accumulate points based on your profession, you make a certain number of actions per turn to earn points and block opponents. I like it because the cards have a strategic component where you have to try to both block competitors and earn Victory Points. Check it out!

I love deck building games and wish I had more of them.

What are your favorites? I am liking The Quest for El Dorado as my favorite right now. I like the mix of board and cards over a strict card game like Dominion. I'd say my all time favorite is Ascension: Deckbuilding Game. I probably have a couple hundred plays on that (between phone and in person)

Ascension is a solid game (with lots of expansions!) I have to give a shout-out to Michael Gnade for Brass Empire (Mike did the Maximum Apocalypse series as well) his deckbuilding game has the added bonus of a battle feature that made this very interesting, plus for a steampunk themed game it was very cool.
