board games list

I tend to forget the games I play, so I've compiled some games I've played in the last few weeks.

Agricola:  euro resource game, liked it enough and now I've a copy
Jungle speed: fast, good party game. got a copy
Mordred: arthurian game, interesting, easy
Battlestar Galactica: fun when you don't know who the cylons are, tedious after. cylons only lose if they don't play well.
Small World: resource game, pretty fun
Handy: Twister for the fingers... novel factor, not high playability
Last night on earth: co-op zombie game. I got bored
Mall zombie game: pretty fun, you vote off players
Where's my fish?: easy fast penguin game.
Ra: Auction game. pretty interesting and fun
Guerilla: card game. I didn't like it
Paranoia: card game, pretty fun

Awesome
Awesome, thank you for posting this list, I'll make sure to check some of them out.

Can you say something as to how many players the various games need ?

Some games are "2-8 players", but in reality aren't any fun unless you're atleast 6 players, other games are best, or indeed only playable for 2 people.

Re: Awesome
boardgamegeek.com has a lot of rankings like best 2 player games, and reviews of each game.

i still have a copy. it's a good gateway boardgame.. the kind you use to lure people from monopoly to other games.

you going to visit austin soon??

nope. I've become quite east-coast centric. My limited time off for the fall is earmarked for getting reaquainted with my boyfriend when he gets back from his deployment.

He's planning a trip to Australia for 2 or 3 weeks just after I get back from Greece, so I'm not sure I'll be able to go on that or not. Looks like "not" but I'll have to deal with that later.

Have you experimented with the boardgamegeek.com play log? Their iPhone app is really slick and easy to use - search for a game, click add a play, choose the date (defaults to current day) and add it.
