My girlfriend and I are starting to amass a little collection. We’ve got

Exploding Kittens with Imploding Kittens expansion
Ticket to Ride
Bears versus Babies
Codewords
Catan

Any suggestions for something simple and fast along the Exploding Kittens lines?

Yeah it's awesome. Had considered picking up one of the other ones in the series but was a bit worried they'd be too similar. Has anyone had any experience playing Desert or Sky?


We have forbidden desert. Only played it once so far but really enjoyed it.

Just ordered Dice Throne. I hadn't heard of it until a recent episode of Watch it Played. It's been through Kickstarter, so should have my copy within a few weeks. It's a Battle-Yahtzee game, or "Street Fighter meets King of Toyko". Looks gorgeous!

Has anyone played/bought Azul? My wife is after suggestions for my birthday and I quite like the look of it but unsure how complicated it is.

It's simple enough for beginners, but complex enough for experienced players to not get bored of it. Only takes about half hour, plenty of strategy, but still fun to play if you don't understand the strategy all that well (according to my Mum anyway)

Bought Eldritch Horror for my wife's birthday, hopefully she likes it, I read the game can take a good 2 to 3 hours to play.

I’ve never been able to get on with eithe Eldritch or Arkham Horror. Find them both to be quite boring and I’m waiting for it to be over whenever I’ve played them.

Had both Treasure Island & Wingspan arrive yesterday which I’m pumped to try!

As far as I remember, one of either Eldritch or Arkham Horror was almost unplayable these days due to the crunchiness of its systems. The other I played and really enjoyed.

FAKE EDIT: Eldritch is the updated Arkham and yes, very fun.

Been getting a regular boardgames thing going at work and its gone pretty well, we play most Wednesdays at lunch time and weve started to stay one evening a month, order in some pizza and play some bigger games. Popular ones right now are Colt Express, Camel Up and Codenames, its so good to have a regular group to be gaming with again.
