Well, nothing special - games come and go. Nearly every week I try out some new game with my friends. Last friday it was Pirate's Cove http://www.gamesinabox.com/piratescove.html and a couple weeks before that El Grande http://www.gamesinabox.com/elgrande.html. So far I've liked best the Citadels http://www.gamesinabox.com/citadels.html. Transamerica was good as well, really simple and very luck based, but however, fun to play http://www.boardgameratings.com/game/121/. Throught the Desert, how to describe it - very interesting as well, a bit of luck is required but mosty you'll succeed if you play wicely http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/503. Settlers of Catan is yes, good, but on the other hand it felt a bit too epic, the graphics were not pleasing and generally I didn't get into the mood as much as I tried. Simply the game felt just a bit too alienating - http://www.gamenight.com/html/Games/settlers_of_catan.htm.

Ok, one good tip - Kill Dr. Lucky - turn based game where players are chasing Dr. Lucky around his mansion trying to kill him and prevent other players not to kill him. Very funny, very exciting http://www.cheapass.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CAG&Product_Code=CAG001
