    Everyone who I have played HIVE with has 100% loved it. From adults to 10yr olds who I've taught & played with, all have wanted to immediately play another game. 2 player game only. It's a desert island game for sure.

    King of Tokyo is another hit but it's good as a 3+ player game.

    Liar's Dice is hilarious when added with alcohol & have to have at least 3 players.

    I've watched a review of King of Tokyo, and it looked to me like it might have the same weakness as Small World - where (with more than two players) how well you do could be more dependant on whether other people choose to attack you than how well you play.

    On Saturday, I went to a board game bring and buy sale.

    I kind of accidentally spent 90 and got:

    Dominion (1st edition, to get the cards which aren't in the 2nd edition, and get the extras to play 5-6 players)

    Star Realms (I know this already from my iPad - and have played a couple of games with my son - good so far)

    Star Realms: Colony Wars

    Tiny Epic Quest (I've played one solo to cement the rules in my head - but I really want to play against people now)

    Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends

    Race for the Galaxy (I've played a couple of times with my son - I think this will grow on me if I can convince people to play it)

    La Isla

    Calus: Magna Carta

    Priests of Ra

    PandemicL Contagion


    Good times ahead...

    All of that of 90? That's a good deal.

    I LOVE Tiny Epic Quest!

    It's the second best Tiny Epic game, IMHO, with Tiny Epic Galaxies being the best. The rest are kind of blah to me.

    I've enjoyed it solo but there are some funky rule changes for multiplayer. Namely when/how to flip the quest token. My advice is to just be consistent about changing quests out. Movement can be confusing, too, initially. Just remember that EVERYONE gets to move that direction when a person chooses a mode (if you pick horse, ALL players get to travel by horse in turn order).

    A word of warning: the game can really drag with 4 players but like Tiny Epic Galaxies, the follow mechanic really reduces the down time for other players and requires you to pay attention each turn. That follow mechanic in both games is really freaking cool, BTW.

    I played a couple of games against my daughter yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot - and she clearly did because she insisted on the second game.

    Awesome! It really is fun.

    My son and wife call it Zelda: The Board Game.

    If you have the Golden Mushroom Kingdom mini-expansion, this becomes more true.

    Miniature Wargames:

    Warmachine/Hordes
    Firestorm Armada
    Anima Tactics

    Board Games/Card Games

    Allegiance: A Realm Divided
    Star Realms
    Hero Realms
    Sword & Sorcery: Immortal Souls
    Starship Samurai
    HeroScape

    Shadows of Brimstone is pretty good too, though requires a lot of time.

    I have - but I thought I should get some games of the base game played before I tried the expansion.

    My son calls it "Space Dominion" - I think it sits more halfway between Dominion and Magic the Gathering.

    Dominion is still my favourite card game though.
