1) I learn about Board Game Atlas because of the board game giveaway and I eventually love this sites!

2) I always love board games since I am 7th grade and it has been like few years ago since I am deep in love and bought a lot of board games!

3) My current top 3 games are #Plague Inc. The Board Game , it always stay for my top 1 game as I really love the mechanics of the games! My next games are #Star Realms: Frontiers , which is a deck building game and I really love the concept of the game especially fighting the boss cooperative! I even make my own factions and play with my gaming groups! The 3rd games I love are kind of more 2P games, it is #Shaolia: Warring States which releases like a year before, it requires a lot of strategic as well as some luck in the game to crush your opponent either by destroying their HP of castle or dominating with 18 Culture Points!

1)  I came across bga looking for price aggregator sites.  The only one I really knew of before was boardgameprices.
2)  I've only recently become interested in the hobby a handful of years ago when I attended PAX South.  I had been mainly interested in video games and video game development, but was now made aware of a vast and varied tabletop scene.  I have been gaming all my life, but prior to my exposure to "hobby" games I mostly played the widely available commercial/classic board games and party games.
3)  My three favorite games at the moment are Wingspan, Watergate, and Letters from Whitechapel.

Nice to have you! #Wingspan is my favorite too! Do you have the expansion or any plans to get the new one?

As far as video games go, have you tried any board games with video game IPs? Like #XCOM: The Board Game or #This War Of Mine: The Board Game? I haven't myself but those two I'd be the most interested in I think

I don't have any of the expansions to Wingspan, but I do plan on getting them at some point.  I really don't feel like the game needs any expansion, but when I eventually get the itch to add some variety, I'll pick them up.
I have Binding of Isaac: Four Souls because I'm a big fan of Edmund McMillen.  Other than that, I've not played any board games with video game IPs, but I certainly want to!  I liked the video game This War of Mine and can see how it could be successfully translated to a board game.
My friend has Mechs vs. Minions, which we have yet to play- but I'm looking forward to it.
And, I've always been intrigued with Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game, but have yet to try it out.

I could see that re Wingspan. The main reason I like the #Wingspan: European Expansion is because it added end of round cards which help offset laying eggs towards the end of the game.

I've seen the Binding of Isaac game a few times at Target. Don't play the video game nearly as much as I'd like!

Hey everyone,

Glad to be here.  I'll go with #Power Grid, #Kemet, and #Coup, but I'd like to try #Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan

Anyone in the Bay Area?

 

Owner3 months ago

I lived in the Bay all throughout elementary to community college years. Mostly in San Mateo county (Millbrae/San Mateo/San Bruno)

Nice, I still need to try #Power Grid. I was put off at first but how maths-y it is but as time goes on I think I might enjoy that more than I once though. Have you had a go at #Kemet with the rules updates?

Supporter3 months ago

I do think that Power Grid could/should be talked be about more. 

Supporter3 months ago

I started my gaming journey with coup! Kemet is really fun,  I suggest you check out other mattagot games in that same dudes on a map vein: #Inis and#Cyclades. 

Inis is one of my favorite games and the art style is beautiful.

Welcome!

Hello all!

1) I found the site via mention by one of Alex of BoardGameCo.com's recent videos. I'm kind of surprised, given the quality and purpose of the site, that I hadn't discovered it before. Glad to have found it though.

2) I've been in the hobby in one way or the other for close to forty years or so? I've been a fan of games of all kinds for as long as I can remember. I'm happy to see the emergence of niche games coming to the fore during the last ten years or so.

3) Three games? #Too Many Bones, #Star Wars Imperial Assault, and #Arkham Horror: The Card Game have secured top spots, but I also am looking forward to checking out #The 7th Continent, #Aeon's End, and #Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game.

Thanks for the opportunity to introduce myself to the community, and I look forward to participating more here in the future.

Nice! Alex is so good about giving people shoutouts haha.

Glad you're finding a good use out of the website. Always feel free to suggest any new ideas/improvements for anything. And as said, many of the games you mentioned are well loved around here :)

#Too Many Bones has been on my wishlist for about 6 months now! Can't wait to try it out some day (not sure when that will come)

Premium User3 months ago

Welcome ! I just saw #Arkham Horror: The Card Game at a FLGS the other day and I don't know a whole lot about it. What makes it one of your favorites?

3 months ago

I've enjoyed the writing (and little else) of Lovecraft since I was a kid, so anything that leans into that genre will get my attention. The game shares many similarities mechanically with others in Fantasy Flight's catalog, and it's that mechanic of hand management that I think I enjoy the most. If you're interested, maybe take a look at a spoiler-free review like this one by Shut Up & Sit Down. The writing and art of the game are also quite good. The biggest negative I might mention is the frustratingly random-seeming rotation of scenario packs going in and out of print, but I've found they're worth the wait. They have loads of replay value as well.

I honestly was just intrigued by the investigation aspect of the game. I'm sure it's very different from like a Chronicles of Crime or Detective, but my fiancé is big into true crime stuff. I'll check the video out, thanks!

Wow, that is awesome! Some of those games you mentioned get brought up quite a bit around here, so I'm sure you'll feel right at home, haha.

Welcome, good to have you on board! The Arkham Horror Card game is our groups next 'legacy' type game to play through, I am so looking forward to it. Any tips to make it more enjoyable?

3 months ago

I can't really think of a specific tip to make it more enjoyable, as I guess I think the game does all of that by itself. I play this game entirely solo, but I think it would be a fun one to play in a group. I hope you enjoy it!

Hey all! Really enjoying being part of this community. I'll jump right into the questions:

1. I was introduced to BGA by and . They invited me to a game night a few weeks ago and recommended this site.

2. I've played board games for years, but I only started getting more serious about it (playing heavier games for the first time) about a month ago.

3. At the moment, my favorite games are #Betrayal at the House on the Hill, #Too Many Bones, and #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion. Subject to change really soon as I keep trying a bunch of awesome new games!

Right now I'm really enjoying games with RPG elements, co-op, and dice, but I'm honestly open to trying anything to refine my tastes in board games.
