We got Bananagrams and Apples to Apples. I like Bananagrams. But I kind of wanted Pandemic instead of A to A.

Been thinking about getting Catan to play with my son, but it looks like it's 3+ players. My daughter is too young (5) and if my wife plays with my son and I my daughter will insist on playing (she does this with monopoly and it's the worst) anyone ever play Catan with just two players? Is it worth it?

You can't play with two players. You need to make trades and stuff. Just don't see it working. Have a friend of his come over or invite woody.

There's a Catan Junior that will work for all of you, even two player, I believe (we had the same problem with the middle a couple years ago). The gameplay is similar enough, with resources to use to build ships and sail around islands. The person who captures the most islands wins.

How'd it go?

Speaking of Arkham Horror, I picked up the card game version of it (Arkham Horror: The Card Game) and it is very legit. Takes the theme and mood from the original game and turns it into a multi-campaign experience (expansions necessary, though) that has a legacy style twist to it (what you do in the first game affects your other games). Really like the updated fighting/skill test mechanic as they did away with dice chucking altogether. Artwork on the cards is rad as hell, too. It seems very complicated but it's easy to get into a groove pretty quickly. Works great as a solo or two-player co-op experience. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who digs those HP Lovecraft/Cthulu-themed games.

I would totally go to this. I got my ticket for GenCon in August and I'm psyched.

Anybody #$!&@ with Dominion? Great deckbuilding game that has a ton of expansions. Got my group into this one and it's been on steady rotation.

People in my WoW guild play it on Tabletop Simulator. I listened to them play, it sounds both extremely nerdy when you don't know what you're doing, and also a lot of fun.

Oh yeah, I get a bit anxious when my friend's roommates walk in and out of the room while we're playing and it's just a steady barrage of "OK, i'm going to play my Bandit card which gives me 1 gold and 1 action, I'll use my additional action to play the Festival and gain 2 actions and +2 buying power, and with my 3 silver and +2 buying power, I'll buy an estate"
