I found some older threads on this topic, but thought maybe I'd start fresh!
I moved here a year ago from the U.S. and one thing I miss is playing board games with a regular group of friends. In my "old life" we met once a week (wouldn't need to be that frequent though) and rotated hosting duties (providing drinks/snacks). Basically a group of 4-5 guys in their late 20s / 30s blowing off some steam.
I own a few games -- Agricola, 7 Wonders, and Tobago -- and would like to add a couple more to my collection. The trouble is, I have no one to play with.
If you have any experience playing (or even just a desire to play) the more "advanced" style of board games, I'd love to hear from you! In addition to what I listed above, I'm familiar with the following and more:
Shadows over Camelot
Lord of the Rings
Mystery at the Abbey
Settlers of Catan
Ideology: The War of Ideas
You get the idea -- I'm not really interested Scrabble, Monopoly, and the like.
Hoping to get some responses!
