When my friend introduced me to Shadows Over Camelot a few years ago, it was over. I became addicted to these games. It was only bolstered by Battlestar Galactica... then Dominion... then several hundred dollars later my closet was full.
My favorite games are the ones that provide a lot of discussion afterwards and create moments of laughter and fun conversation. They also tend to come out regularly. Cosmic Encounter, Battlestar Galactica, and Dominion seem to be the top games. Cyclades is making a strong case for passing Dominion. War of the Ring and Washington's War are in need of more playtime but their appeal cannot be denied.
Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to talk games or try to play something on Vassal. I like playing Washington's War by email like this, but I would consider other games too.
How my Lists Work:
My top 10 are my all-time favorites. My Hot 10 are the games that I most want to play.
