It is far from my favorite game, but I think Star Realms fits this category. Super simple deck builder, super quick to play, super cheap ($13 on Amazon) and a small package (can fit in your pocket).

u/warderin · 40 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Cards Against Humanity - $25. If you haven't played it, you've probably heard of it. A great party game, and a good gift for the offensive people in your life.

P.S. You can get the game plus 2 expansions for <$50 right now

u/cjt09 · 36 pointsr/gamedev

You're probably already aware of this, but there already exists a fairly popular card game called Citadels. You may want to consider renaming your game to avoid any confusion. Just a thought.

Here is the link of the cards I bought, are those diamonds not green?

Edit: (Ok I guess the clubs are green and diamonds are blue my bad)

u/GallonOfLube · 26 pointsr/AskReddit

I own all of these (plus quite a few more), and enjoy playing them regularly. Prices are approximately accurate at places like Target, walmart, Amazon, etc. Most games below can be played by up to 4-6 players (some more), but all support a minimum of two. (An important distinction, as many games require 3 or more players.)


  • Scrabble/Monopoly are fun if you're both into the classics. For some reason, these are both almost $20 on Amazon, but I've seen them for under/around $10 each at Target/Walmart.
  • Scrabble Slam (card game) - sets Scrabble on it's ear and adds some adrenaline.
  • A copy of Hoyle's Rules of Games and a deck of cards.
  • Uno - One of my favorites - An absolute staple, and works with as many people as you want, though you might want to add a second deck for more than 4-5.
  • Phase 10 - kind of like a cross between Uno and Rummy.


    Here, we start getting into some really interesting ones...

  • Munchkin - One of my favorites - Like pen & paper RPGs? This makes fun of them ALL in a way only a true gamer would get. Plenty of expansions if you get bored.
  • Guillotine - You're each executioners during the French Revolution, trying to collect the most prestigious heads.
  • Gloom - You're each one of up to four tragedy-ridden families. Play misery-inducing cards on your family to make them as unhappy as possible before you shove them off into the hereafter, and play happy puppies and fluffy bunnies on your opponent to do the opposite.
  • Fluxx - The rules are the cards you play. Start with 3 cards, then draw 1 and play 1 each turn. Oh, but now it's draw 3 and play 1, so you'll need to draw 2 more to catch up. Now it's draw 3 and play 5, so play 4 to catch up, except that someone played inflation, so it's draw 4 and play 6... etc.
  • Citadels Out of the hundreds of games I've played over the years, this is the only one I've seen that claims to have "intrigue"... and really does. Play the role of various nobles, each with different abilities, to gain gold, build cities, and steal from/assassinate your opponents to prevent them from doing the same. The catch? You each play different roles each turn, and the roles are chosen part randomly, and part secretly, so that no one knows who is who until it's too late.


  • Carcassone - One of my favorites - Lay down tiles to build cities, roads and farmland, and place your followers to claim them for points. Just because you lay something down doesn't mean someone else won't claim it instead, and claiming it doesn't ensure that you keep it. Lots of strategy involved, and plenty of expansions if you want to change gameplay. Good for up to 5 players, or more with expansions. Has some similarities with Settlers of Catan, to be mentioned shortly.
  • Chez Geek, House Party Edition - You're all college kids in a dorm, trying to get the most slack points with fun/cool things to do, while reducing slack points in your opponents with annoying cards like car alarms (no sleep), the drunk friend (drinks all your slack-gaining booze), etc. The basic game is under $20, but it's worth it to buy the House Party Edition for $25, as it includes some expansions and extras.
  • Illuminati - I haven't played this yet, but from what I've read, it's a blast. By Steve Jackson Games, the makers of Munchkin.
  • Kill Dr. Lucky - Here's a quote from the rules: "You have hated Dr. Lucky for as long as you can remember, and you've been secretly awaiting this perfect chance to do the old man in. Maybe he destroyed your dry cleaning business; maybe you think he's the leader of the vampires. Perhaps he's the only person standing between you and the family fortune. Or maybe his cat just keeps peeing in your shrubs. Whatever your reason, its good enough to push you over the edge, and now you absolutely can't wait to take the lying old bastard down!"

    A bit pricier here, but some very interesting gameplay is to be found.

  • Settlers of Catan - One of my favorites - no game shelf is complete without it - Build roads and settlements using the tradable resources provided by the areas around your settlements, and the roll of the dice. Note: This is not a two player game. I made an exception here because it rocks, but unfortunately you'll need a third wheel to play.
  • Dominion - One of my favorites - I grew up with Magic: The Gathering, but disliked always having to buy new cards to be competitive. Gameplay is somewhat similar to Magic, though instead of plinking away at your opponent's health, you are gaining victory points. Also, Dominion includes all of the cards you will need for up to 4 players, and you "build" your deck (similar to Magic), by buying new cards every turn.
  • Ticket to Ride - Build your train routes across the US (or Europe, if you get that edition) without revealing your destination, because your opponents might cut you off!
  • Small World - Kind of like a cross between Risk and... something else. Control territory to gain gold, using various races with special abilities. Send your races into decline (continuing to own the territory until it is taken), while expanding out with your new race. Knowing when to send a race into decline makes all the difference.
  • Red November - You're a bunch of drunken gnomes on a doomed submarine. Put out the fire by shunting the flooded compartment to the burning one, but now there are two flooded compartments and you have to pump them out while the engine has a problem and oh my god it's the kraken. INSANE gameplay, but can be stressful. This has skyrocketed in price (from $30 to $50), probably because they're about to release a revised edition, so the old one is out of print. You might want to wait a month for the new version to come out before you buy this.
u/andyoulostme · 23 pointsr/magicTCG

I don't know where you live, but the people I know definitely think gaming setups are expensive. That's why people buy them rarely, and invest in ones that last a long time. There are expensive hobbies out there -- skiing, hunting, equestrianism off the top of my head. But those aren't run-of-the-mill hobbies, those are expensive hobbies. Playing Mardu Vehicles is also an expensive hobby.

Let's compare Magic to similar games for its audience:

  • Introductory gaming is about the same price as similar options. F2P online games cost $0 to get into, as do free 30-card decks. Light board games (part of a moderately expensive hobby) are around $10-$20, as are Planeswalker decks.
  • Middle-of-the-road gaming is more expensive than many options, but close to board game habits. Free online games are a staple of Magic's target audience, and a moderately-serious FNM is likely to cost $30-$50 more than League of Legends. It's more on par with various popular board games. A player going for budget HS decks is also saving money compared to budget MtG decks.
  • High-end MtG gaming is god damn expensive, especially for your target audience. $300 for Temur Aetherworks gets you most (all?) of HS's competitive field, or LotR LCG + 6 deluxe expansions + 2 saga expansions, or every major expansion for Sentinels of the Multiverse, or the Elder Scrolls series + the Mass Effect series + GTA 5 + Rocket League + Witcher 3.

    So if you're a new gamer, MtG is expensive compared to LoL, HS, and Clash of Clans. If you're kind of invested in gaming, Magic is similarly-priced to board games but will rotate out. If you're heavily invested in competitive gaming, Magic is a money vortex.

    Magic is expensive.
u/outshyn · 19 pointsr/rpg

I'm excited to see your post, because I was going to write something similar. In particular, I wanted to link to the five geek social fallacies which is all about why nerdy gamers feel obligated to include socially awkward friends at the table, even when they're disruptive. And then, I wanted to suggest that OP transition this high-anxiety friend over to a different social event, and your suggestion of board games is perfect. Board games do not require role play in which a socially awkward person bungles the social interactions. Here are some of my favorites that seem to work well with socially difficult people:

  • Dominion (a deck building game -- start with 10 cards, mostly cards to buy stuff, and spend the game buying up more cards that give you extra actions or cash -- what's extremely cool is that the cards you buy are varied, so one game might feel very different from the next game).
  • Rummikub (you gain 14 tiles and must put them down in runs of color or number -- this is great for aspergers types, because it goes at your own pace, and someone who can envision adjusting all the numbered tiles on the board/table can sometimes on a single turn get rid of tons & tons of tiles in an epic reconfiguring of... everything).
  • Sequence (team-based card game that involves putting down cards on a game board to form lines, sorta like Connect 4, but involving teamwork, so if someone nervous doesn't want all the pressure on himself or herself, there will be teammates to help in this game).
  • Munchkin (a joke game based upon D&D but without the social interactions... perfect).
  • Carcassonne (a slower game that involves making "kingdoms" by placing tiles, pretty good for someone looking for low-pressure).

    Good luck OP!
u/UrbanDEV · 17 pointsr/funny

Or better yet buy the game on amazon and support the awesome result of a kickstarter project

u/vitogesualdi · 16 pointsr/AndroidGaming

Wow, Vito Gesualdi from White Wizard Games here (creators of Star Realms). We are super amazed to have made the top fifty list, especially since this is both our first digital game release and the game has only been out for what, two months now? Glad you guys are loving the app!

As a heads up, we have lots of great suggestions coming from the community and we're working to integrate a bunch of them. Also, keep an eye out for our first expansion, which should add a new chapter to the campaign mode and a host of cool new cards!

I'd also suggest trying out the physical game if you can ever find it at MSRP (or don't mind paying scalper prices on Amazon... We've got a third (and forth) printing on the way and four mini-expansion sets coming around the holidays.

Oh and uh, feel free to challenge 'Vito' on your device. I promise I won't hurt you too bad... ;D

u/YNinja58 · 15 pointsr/IAmA

I think you'd be a big fan of Cards Against Humanity. The only skill you need to play is a sense of humor :-)

u/ihaveplansthatday · 15 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Munchkin - $29.99

Apron - $29.71

Lifting for Women - $14.44

$74.14 - all are highest or high priority from her bomb list. :)

u/ocentertainment · 14 pointsr/rickandmorty

Not to diss if you just really like Monopoly (if so, enjoy!) but there are also a couple other Rick and Morty tabletop games that are, in my opinion at least, way more fun.

Total Rickall is basically a recreation of the episode of the same name. It involves lying to your friends! $15:

Mr. Meeseeks Box o Fun is a ridiculous dare game where you have to complete stupid tasks so Meeseeks can die. Reminds me a bit of Quelf, for anyone who's played that. $30:

Regardless, cool gift!

u/TheRubyRedPirate · 13 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/[deleted] · 13 pointsr/secretsanta

Not to try and change your mind, but for those who are curious, here are some great boardgames at or around the $20 price point:

Forbidden Island

Race for the Galaxy

The Resistance


For Sale

Roll Through the Ages

Glory to Rome





u/littleswenson · 12 pointsr/blackmagicfuckery
u/DewSchnozzle · 12 pointsr/rickandmorty

Fun party game. Check it out

u/asc33 · 11 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Cards Against Humanity

If you guys are carrying booze, this is the perfect complement. Also, not heavy (just cards) and endlessly amusing. ProTip: pack it in using ziplocks to keep it safe in case the pack goes for a swim.

u/eckswyezed · 10 pointsr/boardgames
  • Dead Last is a recent game with a traitor mechanic. On Amazon now for exactly 20 bucks. But it requires a minimum of 6 players.

  • Coup scales well from 2 to 6. It is a good game of hidden identities.

  • One Night Ultimate Werewolf / Vampire are good games that work from 3 - 10 players. Good amount of bluffing and hidden identities.

  • And then there's always the classic Resistance: Avalon.

    Edit1: Few other suggestions: Bang: The Dice Game, Citadels, Mascarade

    Edit2: Formatting
u/lionontheceiling · 10 pointsr/blogsnark

Soooo over the past few years, my husband has bought a lot of two player games. Since I think most games are designed for more players than that, I wanted to put in some suggestions because we have found some really great ones!

  1. Codenames: Duet - this was a gift from my cousin to my husband last year for Christmas. Wasn't sure about it when she asked me about it...but we play it ALL THE TIME. It's a cooperative game (I'm not super competitive), challenging but not mindnumbingly so, and there are so many different combinations of words being used that I doubt it will ever get stale.

  2. Roll For It! - another hit! You roll your dice and try to match them to the patterns on the cards. Different points values are allotted to each card and your goal is to get to 40 points. Fairly easy to pick up. It actually pretty fun with two people but can be played with up to four (and if you buy two sets, up to 8). It's also very portable for vacations!

    A few others we like but don't play as often

  3. Sushi Go - a little complicated to learn but there's a demo on youtube that is helpful. The cards are super cute!

  4. Jaipur - we've only played this once or twice because it takes a little longer/requires a little more strategy but I really enjoyed it. I think this one is exclusively for two players

  5. Quiddler - We just broke this one open a few weeks ago so only played once. This is more of a word game combined with a strategy game. Again, takes a little bit to get the hang of it....but I think we will be playing this one a lot too.
u/tyce_tyce_baby · 10 pointsr/rickandmorty

You can also find it here

u/Dains84 · 9 pointsr/boardgames

Thanks for the tip! Just FYI - with shipping, it's $30. You can get it for that price from Amazon as well.

u/timotab · 8 pointsr/boardgames

To give people an idea, Dominion is 11.8 x 11.8 x 2.9 inches (according to Amazon, and the internal box size listed on USPS's site is 23.69 x 11.75 x 3 inches.

So, two Dominion-sized boxes should just fit side by side, but it will be a tight fit, and not allow for any additional packing.

u/Solodolo2015 · 8 pointsr/videos
u/siegewolf · 8 pointsr/Games
u/Izodius · 8 pointsr/GameDeals

Killer price on Machi Koro, and Splendor both. Black Fleet and Tash Kalar, meh whatever.

I just want to point out that Sentinels of the Multiverse is still on sale, with Prime. One of my favorite games ever. It's absolutely worth buying it's Xpac with it.

$17.39 Lowest price EVER, and it's a STEAL at that price.

It's Xpac Rook City/Infernal is on sale as well, at it's lowest price ever.

Also King of New York is on sale, at it's lowest price ever $30.36

u/Sammy__Jankis · 8 pointsr/TheWire

I've been having a lot of fun playing the card game "Exploding Kittens". I can't stand how "internet-y" the design and humor is, so I decided to re-skin it for my personal use. There's 40 unique characters in the deck! Since I don't have any kind of copyright to the game or the art, I'm not going to distribute the files I designed, but still thought you all would find it cool.

u/Dr_Scientist_ · 7 pointsr/truegaming

This is extraordinarily thorough. So thorough in fact, that you should also consider board gaming. Reading this, it just makes a lot of sense for you. I think board gaming would fit you like a glove.

1. Video games have moved away from couch co-op. You've made a great list here with a lot of solid points, but I doubt you would have ever reached your conclusion, had you considered board games. Keep Talking is certainly a good entertaining game, nothing against it. It's just, that game feels plucked like a needle out of a haystack. Like you've biopsied out a very small node from inside a large mass.

You don't really have this problem with board games. Literally every single board game in existence is designed to be played with people immediately around you. I hesitate to use the phrase "played co-operatively" simply because most board games are NOT co-operative - though there are notable exceptions like Pandemic or Ghost Stories. Both great games.

Board games use human beings as the engine the game runs on. That's not to say board games pit intellects against each other in some sort of valid competition of "who's the most smartest", but to say: humans are social machines and will surprise you with their grasp of system thinking. If I have five or six people in the room with me, I'd prefer the game that we're playing to exist in the head-space between us rather than on some electronic device.

People have come over to my house in the real world. Why not play a game with them that also exists in the real world? I can play videogames over online multiplayer until I'm blue in the face. Just last night I reinstalled Bad Company 2 and played with a few old college roommates. If I had those old friends over to my house, we'd play a board game. It seems crazy to me that someone has taken the time to drive over to your place and you set them down in front of a computer.

2. Because boardgames have always been designed around a social experience taking place in the real world, they're just better at it. This is definitely subjective. You can feel free to disagree with me all you want, but there are mechanics that I just don't see in videogames. Sure, I could load up Gremlin's Inc and replicate what is probably the best roll n' move game I've ever played, but roll n' move is a Monopoly era game genre. Board games can move past this.

You can't play Two Room's and a Boom on a machine. You can't play Bid n' Bluff games like Liar's Dice, Sheriff of Nottingham, or social deduction games like Coup or Love Letter. You can't play physical dexterity games like Jenga (still great fun btw), Flick em' Up, or Catacombs.

There are just games that play better with groups of people because they exist in the real world and make use of humans as the operating system.

3. Board games are much more open to much more people. I don't know about you, but in my experience board games are just more accessible to a wider range of people. I'm maybe going to get a round of Mario Kart out of the adults in my life that love me, but I've sat down with people over 50 and had a great time with Ticket to Ride. At family reunions I've enjoyed Dominion with young children and grandparents alike. Settlers of Catan, Blockus, and Carcassonne are all genuinely fun games I played to death with my family.

How crazy is that? I would really look forward to playing one of those games with my whole family. I can't think of even one videogame that fits that criteria.

4. Perhaps most simply, there are incredible games that just don't exist in videogame form - even though they could. Is the total conversion mod for Crusader Kings II not giving you that full heady Game of Thrones experience? Why not just play Game of Thrones. This is probably my favorite game and it's just not on computers. I can imagine a version of Cosmic Encounter played over online multiplayer, but why? It already exists in perfect form. If I want to play El Grande, or Arctic Scavengers, or Lords of Vegas - well . . . those games just don't exist as videogames.

5. Just honorable mentions. Seven Wonders. Splendor. Blueprints.

TL;DR. There are a ton of great board games out there and if you actually are struggling to think of something that you and your friends can enjoy together in the same room - maybe give it a shot rather than lament the lack of couch co-op in videogames.

Netrunner [$29.78]

Marvel Legendary [$39.83]

And remember, free shipping for order over $25.

u/cluelessrebel · 7 pointsr/boardgames

For a base set I prefer Munchkin Deluxe. It has a board added to it, but you can still just use the cards. I find the board really helpful in getting people to play because it’s easier to describe what the goal of the game is. Also, it makes it much easier to play drunk (if thats what youre into). You can always buy expansions and other base sets and use the board to go along with it.

Munchkin Deluxe

u/Eighm · 7 pointsr/GameDeals

Munchkin Deluxe is included in this. Picked it up along with Carcassone and Betrayal at House on the Hill. Thanks OP.

u/fayehanna · 6 pointsr/weddingplanning

I was just thinking Cards Against Humanity is a super fun ice breaker! (just dirty and stuff). I was playing at a party we were hosting and my aunt and uncle stopped by, I thought my aunt would be a total prude about it but she ended up winning the game!

u/greentea1985 · 6 pointsr/scifi

I'd tell this dad to pick up Sentinels of the Multiverse. Very fun card game that has superhero characters that are parodies of famous DC and Marvel characters and a good balance of male and female characters to play as. It is also a really fun game.

u/EmbyrFlayme · 6 pointsr/boardgames

My suggestions for fun two player games that have a small footprint are below. I haven't tried playing these in a pub, but I think they should work.

Love Letter - I played this at a party recently and enjoyed it. There are various themes, including a munchkins variant.

Pass the Pigs - I used to bring this game with me on plane trips because it is compact and playable on a tray table.

Toss Up - Fun dice game, simple rules, could be turned into a drinking game if you are so inclined.

Timeline - Lots of different versions of this game, all have to do with history, but you can pick different topics, and even combine packs.

Exploding Kittens - random fun, there is also a NSFW version that is full of boob/penis/poop/etc jokes.

Hanabi - I have the tile version of this, which is a little bulkier, but is much more drink and food resistant.

u/mostlypertinant · 6 pointsr/latterdaysaints

With all the love of my soul, you need some better board games.

Ticket to Ride is my favorite "gateway" game. No more complicated than Monopoly et al but so much better:

Coup is another. If it takes longer than five minutes to play a round, you're not being aggressive enough:

When you're ready for something a little more strategic, Settlers of Catan is a classic:

Hop on over to /r/boardgames some time!

u/Danwarr · 6 pointsr/boardgames
u/greatanswerer · 6 pointsr/math

How about Set?

A possible conversation topic is how big a collection of cards can you make that don't contain a "set"?

u/groundshop · 6 pointsr/lanparty

The lans I go to are too small to really bear much advice to you on the questions you listed.

Where I can provide some insight is in the types of table top games you should consider. Lots of folks (in the lan community) have been exposed to traditional pen/paper stuff like DnD. If you're looking to spice things up a bit, consider trying out some of the modern board games that are out. I'm sure some of your attendees will have already been exposed to these, but for the rest that haven't, they'll probably strike at least an interest or a few questions. BoardGameGeek has a list of the top board games out right now, some of which you might not have heard of. Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Race for the Galaxy, Carcassonne are some of the most popular. They're flashy, they're interesting, and they're usually under an hour (if not usually under 45 min) to play. They're an up and coming type of gaming that's spreading fast among the table-top/CCG/comics folks.

Edit: In retrospect, I kinda seem like a fanboy for this post, but holy shit they're really awesome games.

u/Kolione · 6 pointsr/boardgames

Im a big fan of Ascension personally. Had the app forever and am finally getting a physical copy in the mail next week. Its not incredibly interactive though, only occasionaly forcing players to discard cards and such. Its all about getting points by killing monsters from the center deck (which also holds extra cards for your deck).

I cant speak to the other games you listed but if you want to pick up Dominion its super cheap right now. Amazon has it for $20 on sale. And if you have prime and live somewhere that is serviced by prime now you can get it for $10. Use the promo code PRIMENOW10 which gives you $10 off of a $20 order. I just ordered a copy for myself last night. A friend of mine already had it but its hard to turn down a $45 game for $10.

u/TheSheDM · 5 pointsr/DnD

Ebay is a terrible place to buy small amounts of minis. I only go there if I have a chunk of cash to drop on a big lot of minis. is generally a little cheaper than troll and toad. You can get some cheap minis even on troll and toad though, so if you're picky about some minis, then yes expect to pay more.

Fighters/Paladins/Barbarians/Rogues/Whatevers for less than $2 -- Monk for less than $1 -- gnome for less than $1 -- kobold monk for less than $1 -- female rogue less than $1

Spellcasters for less than $2

There's more. They're there, if you have the patience to find them.

If you're pressed for money over minis I'd recommend get nice minis for your PCs and invest in a nice set of tokens for your bad guys. Maybe splurge on a cool mini for your BBEG, because at this stage minis are pricey if you're buying for monsters.

The Pathfinder boosters are decent and have some cool monsters. If you've got the cash, buying by the case can get you a good selection fast at better prices per mini than buying individuals. You'll have the advantage of getting a mix of PC minis AND monster minis with those. See here and here

I could go on, but if you take your time and browse, there's a lot you can find.

u/insanityv2 · 5 pointsr/rpg

4e is pretty simple. Even simpler than that is Swords and Wizardry which is made to resemble old school DnD. Microlite 74 is similar but does not hew as closely to any incarnation of DnD. All of these are free.

Swords and Wizardry has quick start rules here. I listed some beginner modules for it.

>Is there a D&D "basic" set in its latest incarnation?

You mean like this?

The Red Box, then Rules Compendium, Heroes of the Fallen Lands, and then the Monster Vault.

The Red Box comes with some premade characters and a quick adventure. Its pretty cheap and will help you determine if this is the system you want (note your free options.)

If you like it, then:

Then the Heroes book will help you guys build characters.

The Rules Compendium contain all the... rules. (What happens on each players turn, etc etc).

Monster Vault has monsters for the DM.

Not a lot of good adventures available for 4e though, though if you like 4e and want to run premade stuff for it, some options are laid out here.

You also have the option of subscribing to a service called DnD Insider, which will give you access to, among other things, an online character builder for the players and a monster builder for the DM with all the stuff from the books,. It costs like 10 bucks a month... but its an option that you should be aware of.

You might get some recommendations for Pathfinder, because redditors love them some Pathfinder (which is based off DnD 3.5 so if you know that, you know PF). It's a good system--I'm playing it right now--but its so complex that I have some trouble recommending it to absolute beginners in good conscience. You can look into it here. If you do go with it, I highly highly recommend a character builder like PCGen.

EDIT: Fixed some links.

u/spankymuffin · 5 pointsr/boardgames

If your bar is quiet and spacious enough for people to play board games, I'd say anything goes. But I think you're looking for "quick, easy-to-learn, exciting games that people can play even if they're drunk."

In that case, get Saboteur. I played it last weekend and it was an insane amount of fun. Everyone was shouting at one another, accusing every other player of being a saboteur. Ton of fun, cheap as hell, and can be played with as much as 9 players.

Now, you need to lay the cards out on a surface. So hopefully you have a big enough surface to play it on. It shouldn't take too much space, but check out a youtube video of people playing or reviewing it just to make sure it'll work. That is, it's not something you can play on bar stools.

Also, Citadels is worth looking into. Another easy, quick, cheap, fun game.

u/Beefourthree · 5 pointsr/boardgames

Guillotine (BGG; $14 at Amazon) is a 2-5 person card game based on the French Revolution.

The game takes place over three rounds ("days"). Each day, you line up twelve noble cards. Each noble has a different point value. At the end of each turn, a player decapitates the noble at the front of the line. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins (novel concept, right?)

Every turn, you can:

  1. Optionally play an action card from your hand, which allows to adjust the line, gain points, or mess up other player's plans with various cards.

  2. Collect the nobel at the front of the line (unless your action card lets you do something else.

  3. Draw another action card.

    In addition, certain nobles have special actions that trigger when collected, allowing you to draw more cards, gain points, or extend the day.

    Really simple to learn, with a skill cap coming in 3 or 4 games later, once you've learned all the cards. Pretty luck based (depends on card draw,) but fun nonetheless. I play 5-6 games on a gaming night, then don't touch it for a few weeks. It's a ton of fun as long as it's not the only game you're playing.

But I'll third the recommendation for Ticket to Ride. It's easy to pick up and pretty fun compared to standard board games you'd find at Wal-Mart or Target (e.g., Monopoly).

I'll also recommend Dominion. My wife hates board games and I hesitated to introduce this game to her, but she caught on really quickly and became quite obsessed with the game for quite a while.

Technically no board involved, but Cards Against Humanity is a lot of fun.

And they have an expansion pack now!

u/Grahamcracker4m · 5 pointsr/cardsagainsthumanity

Ever since the first time I saw my first Cards Against Humanity card that read "Mecha Hitler" and said outloud "Whisky-Tango-Foxtrot?", I've been hooked. What I really love is the spirit of the guys behind it. They made it open-source and gave it to the masses for free in the form of do-it-yourself cards. The drawback is, your cutting skills almost certainly suck.

In the same spirit of wanting to make this game available to everyone, including those who are so astoundingly lazy that they won't take the time to properly cut their cards, I give you Business Cards Against Humanity. It's pretty much the same as the do-it-yourself cards, but it's set up to work with common business card cutters you'll find at most print shops. The result is nice, very uniform cards. Here's how it works:

  1. Download the pdf files you want to use
  2. Take them to your local print shop. I used Staples, and they should have the correct business card cutter too.
  3. Print them out on thick cardstock, ask for matte BCIM if they have it.
  4. Have them print one test page and run it through the cutter.
  5. If all is well, run the rest through.

    Here's some tips.

  • Get a quote on the entire job before they print. You don't want any hidden fees after the fact. Call it in if you are feeling lazy.
  • Like the do-it-yourself cards, ask if they will print them on their color printer at the black and white prices since, you know, it's all in black and white anyways, the color printer just does a much better job.
  • Ask if they will run it through the cutter for free or not. Apparently Staples doesn't have a fee set up for just that, they said some other stores may charge one or two dollars, or worst case charge the same price as it costs to print custom business cards from their kiosk.
  • I suggest you use the black backs file to print solid black on the back of the black cards, they will have to run it through a second time for that.
  • If you want you can skip the card extras file, it has the rules, fill-in-yourself black and white cards, and display cards for the nice little cardboard box the finished cards came in.

    Any feedback on this is much appreciated. I've got more that I want to do with the sets, but I'm pretty busy at the moment. Eventually I'll have the expansions when I find out if they too are Creative Commons licensed like the original game, I've heard conflicting points of view on that. I'll also have a way for you to make your own cards, this was actually made using just Publisher and Excel, I'll get the files up once I can make it easier to do.

    Lastly, I have no affiliations with CAH. The original game, and all glory go to the hypnotoad the fine folks at Cards Against Humanity. I made this just as a fan of the original. Speaking of which, go buy a copy. It's much nicer than this version, this is mostly so you can have nice cards when they are sold out/you have $10 to print but not $25 to buy the real thing.

Love Letter - Ultra fun game for 2 to 4 players, super small, super simple, but tons of replayability. One of my favorite games ever, and a hit with everyone. Currently $8 on amazon.

Coup- Super basic social deduction game, tons of fun for not a lot of money. More complicated than Love Letter, but not very difficult. The hardest part about teaching a younger kid this game is the idea that you can (and should) lie to your friends. Currently $9 on amazon.

Red 7 - This is a small 2-4 player game, super fun, super simple. Currently $9 on amazon

Basically, you can get all three of these for ~$25.

u/bleuchz · 4 pointsr/boardgames

Sushi Go!

Sushi Go! is a quick to teach, quick to play light drafting game. I love it as an intro to the drafting mechanic and as a filler.

No Thanks

Probably my favorite "light" card game. Very easy to teach.

For Sale

Great filler auctioning game. Every time I teach it we end up playing 2-3 games in a row.

Love Letter

A must own IMO. Quick and easy.

Zombie Dice

Under rated push your luck dice game. Plus zombies.

You should be able to pick 2-3 from this list and be happy with it :).

u/darc_oso · 4 pointsr/boardgames

My list would include a variation of games

Code Names - $16

Sushi Go - $10

7 Wonders - $26

Tsuro - $19

Castles of Burgundy - $27

Total: $98


First, I want to preface these selections: our play group varies in size from week to week with anywhere from 4-10 players averaging 5-6. So, we often get caught "splitting the party." That's fine at times, but sometimes, we all want to jump in on one game together because splitting up feels bad man^TM since we're all there to socialize in addition to playing games.

As such, I wanted to include games that ran the gamut and for the most part games that scaled well from 2-X players.

First, Code Names. Now, we've played this game so many times, we actually purchased the expansion Code Names Deep Cover which is a fun variant which adds tons of more playability. This is the go-to "party" game as, for our group, Cards Against Humanity has grown a bit stale. At least it hits the table much less frequently than in years past. Code Names is easy to teach, easy to understand and difficult enough for some of your more entrenched board gamers. In general, I find this a great starter to transition from your Milton Bradley games everyone knows (and hates) into board games that offer sustenance.

Secondly, I offer Sushi Go (cheating a bit here as you'll probably have to buy a couple copies for larger groups or just get Sushi Go Party). Sushi Go is our groups go-to game to introduce games that use a drafting mechanic and to teach that board games can be cute, fun, and delightful while also requiring strategy, maths, and a bit of hope (our group tends to dislike dice-rolling games so for the most part, we stick to games where we can mostly "control" our own fates - YMMV). This game is super quick, so you don't get bogged down at the table for hours. I feel for new board gamers, quicker games are a MUST as many people may not be able to handle the length many of our Beloveds require.

7 Wonders comes next. We tend to introduce this game right after Sushi Go as the mechanics are super similar and the newer players feel like they already know what's going on for the most part. There will be questions, there will be some confusion and oversight, but this game follows easily and feels like a natural step up from Sushi Go and gets players right into the mix of heartier board games. Oh, and I could personally play 7 Wonders every week, especially with all the options offered through the expansions Cities, Leaders, and Tower. The interchangeability of these expansions has kept this game on our table long past many others and continues to bring it back. Again though, YMMV as we all have different tastes.

Tsuro, our board game palatte cleanser. This is another quick game which offers a lot of replayabiliity with minimal rules learning. Aside from those positives, the artwork is what sent this board game over the top for me. I am mesmerized by the board, the tiles, and the pieces each time we open this. This game offers a quick break between your heavier meeple-laiden board games so even after we've surpassed "newb" status, we often come back to this.

Castles of Burgundy I included as a final game because ultimately, we need a game with a strong theme and wonderful mechanics which offer replayability from a more traditional Euro point of view. This game really surprised me. I loved it the first time we played it, and though it may not hit the table but once every other month due to time constraints, it always feels like reuniting with an old friend. It offers a setup for further Euro games and sets the scene on what's really out there in weightier board games. I know there could be other games that fit this description, but at the price, this game is amazing for what it offers.

And that's the list. I know there are many criticisms of these games and I don't devalue those. All my favorites have points in them where they fall a little flat at times, or don't elicit the enjoyment I thought they might, but many times, it's usually my perception and frame of mind. I can often come back months later with renewed enjoyment for them, so trust me, I know there are imperfections; I just choose to ignore them for the post. These games, while some may take a bit longer to learn, offer a great springboard into board games and offer the new player a slow wade into the pool without feeling too slow or drab as one might feel with something like Settlers of Catan. Will I stand by this opinion in 5 or 10 years? We'll see.

u/thethoughtoflilacs · 4 pointsr/infertility

Oooh, I looooove board games. From what you're describing I feel like Ticket to Ride could work really well; there are a good amount of instructions but they're pretty easy to follow along with (it's mostly for scoring purposes).

For something way more light/fun, there's also Sushi Go! or Love Letter -- they're both card-based games that look deceptively simple but are never played the same way twice. My wildcard choice would be Carcassonne, which is definitely more of a hard sell -- you build a Medieval French town with picture tiles -- but I promise is really, really fun. Again, the scoring is where it gets slightly more complicated, and it can be intimidating-looking, but the game is really fantastic. Lots of strategy and luck needed, and it's a really unique experience.

Whatever this is for sounds like it'll be a lot of fun!

u/joahfx · 4 pointsr/c137

For anyone who hasn't seen or heard yet, you should get the Rick and Morty Card Game. You literally play out the events of this episode, and get to shoot your friends (in advanced mode at least, which youll end up finding more fun). I give it 9/10 for its price point on a party game.

u/sas41 · 4 pointsr/rickandmorty

Don't encourage this, don't buy monopoly, don't be "that" guy, monopoly has got to be the worst board game in existence, it feeds on fandom culture by releasing these, mostly pointless, "themed" boards. I bet Rick hates monopoly (the board game in this case)

Go get the Total Rickall game if you want a R&M Themed board game, it's rated quite well.

u/RTukka · 4 pointsr/DnD

First, I'd recommend that you keep the box and all of the components in good condition, so you can consider re-selling it once you're done with it. The Red Box seems to be out of print and is selling for far above its $20 MSRP, and if you can recoup some of the money you spent on it to buy some resources that will have more lasting value, it might be worth it (depending on how highly you value your time), since you will have little use for most of the contents of the box once you're through with the initial adventure.

Or, if it's not too late, you may want to cancel your order. The Starter Set is a relatively gentle introduction to D&D, but not necessarily the best one and certainly not the cheapest.

To prepare, you might want to read, and have everyone else read, the quick start rules. You can also have the players choose pre-generated characters from that document and print off the corresponding character sheets. The Red Box method of character creation involves running through a solo "choose-your-own-adventure" book, which you might not want to do 3 or 4 times in succession for each of your players. Note that the the quick start rules uses slightly different versions of the character classes presented in the Red Box, but the characters/systems are compatible.

You will not immediately need to create your own group adventure, as one is included with the Starter Set.

Also, as an alternative to the Starter Set, /u/Dracoprimus posted a bunch of links to free adventures. You can also choose to run one of these adventures after you finish with the Red Box.

However, neither those those links nor the Red Box will not give you the resources needed to build your own characters or advance them past level 2, nor do they contain the info a DM needs to create his own campaign, or extensively modify an existing one. For that, I recommend getting the following resources (buying some of the books used may yield a good savings):

  • Heroes of the Fallen Lands (alternatives/supplements: Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms, the 4e Player's Handbook)
  • The 4e Dungeon Master's Guide (alternative/supplement: the 4e Rules Compendium)
  • The Monster Vault (buy a new or like-new copy so you can be sure you get all of the included components)

    With those three products, you have everything you need to run a level 1-30 campaign. A D&D Insider subscription can substitute for those resources to a large extent, and supplement them with tons of content, but it's most useful as a convenience and reference. I would still recommend getting the core books even if your group has a DDI sub.

    On top of that, a few game aids are nice to have:

  • A blank, reusable flip-mat, like the Paizo basic flip-mat, plus some dry- or wet-erase markers.
  • Alternatively, a 1" gridded easel pad, which you can probably get at an office supply store.
  • Enough dice for everyone. Bulk dice like Chessex Pound O' Dice can be a good way to go.
  • Tokens or character markers. The Monster Vault and Starter Set include some. You can make your own, buy miniatures or products that come with miniatures, like the Descent board game or the Legend of Drizzt, or WotC's Dungeon Command games.
u/DisneyPrincessDVorah · 4 pointsr/dndmemes

Omg yeah, like, the one thing they really needed to take from 4e was the combat creation. So damn simple and quick, plus each monster felt different with fluff and mechanics... Now so many monsters feel the same... Ugh.

But I have monster vault kit from 4e and I use that to make homebrew enemies.

u/KWiP1123 · 4 pointsr/DnD

I use these D&D tokens.

They're (relatively) inexpensive, and you get a ton of them in the box. I can't always find exactly what I'm looking for, but I can pretty much always find something suitably close. 1 set of these has sustained me for a year of playing. They even have individually-numbered multiples for most of the creature types, and some of the more common creatures (humans, goblins, zombies, etc.) have 10 or more that you can use at once.

u/midnightjasmine1 · 4 pointsr/wedding
u/telnetrestart · 4 pointsr/latterdaysaints

Farkle, Killer Bunnies, Munchkin, Netrunner, x-wing, jaiper (super fun 2 player game), Guillotine, Small World...we can't think of any other ones at this time.

She isn't a nerd or anything, but she really likes playing games together. It brings us closer (even though the loser usually wants to strangle the winner for a few minutes after the game). Lots of "I WANT A REMATCH" and "THAT WAS PURE LUCK" is said around our dinner table.

u/RedDelibird · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The base set contains the best white card

Why? Because it has "A Micropenis". A card so versatile and hilarious that it is a near guaranteed victory within my group.

Since I don't write on my white cards and instead have everyone playing write up ones that then get voted on and put on little sticky notes... my personal favorite from the times we've played was "Receiving anal from a raptor and having it call you a clever girl."

u/speculates · 3 pointsr/Indiemakeupandmore

This year I made an amazon wishlist, and the nice thing about it is you can add items from any website to it (there's a google chrome extension but you can do it from your amazon wishlist, as well.) Some things that I added:

  • Gift cards to Etsy and places I like to buy clothes from
  • A new pair of cheapo earbuds for my purse
  • These nice headphones
  • A new ambidexterious gaming mouse (I game right handed but prefer to do everything else on the computer left handed and I don't want multiple mice)
  • Crafty things (wool, painting supplies, watercolour paper)
  • Food/candy items for stocking stuffer ideas
  • A 64gb usb 3.0 drive
  • A new ipod charging cable
  • Some stuff from Sephora
  • A few cool adult colouring books like this
  • Some art related books (painting, hand lettering) that look interesting but I would never think to buy for myself (my family is big into books)
  • Sheets, a mattress topper, and a mattress pad
  • Cards Against Humanity
  • A link to my steam wishlist

    I basically just took a few hours one evening and surfed the web and added things that looked cool, then revised it the next day and removed anything I didn't actually want. A lot of it is stuff I probably wouldn't buy for myself but I'd enjoy having. I tried to add a variety of stuff in the price range department and I thought listing out gift cards to specific places for clothes/etsy stuff was a better idea than them picking it out because that's usually hard.

    For etsy itself, I have a few different lists - things I'm going to buy, things I'll probably buy, and things that are maybes. If certain people (my mom, my sister) wanted to see it and pick something out from it I'd let them and that's part of the reason I've organized it that way (and so I know what I like from which stores without having to search through the whole store)

    Ok, so my favorite movie changes fairly frequently. There are just so many good movies. One of my reoccurring favorites is definitely The Great Mouse Detective though. I love Disney movies, and this one was a staple of my childhood. Plus, it has, IMO, one of the best Disney Villains of all time: Professor Ratigan. One of the VERY few Disney Villains that actually kills someone. I mean, yeah ok, it's a mouse not a human. But it is a movie about mice... so it's kinda like it was a person. But, I have fond nostalgia any time I watch the movie, paired with the fact that it's my favorite disney villain? It's definitely a winner. :)

  • Tell a joke

    A piece of string walked into a bar and said "Gimme a beer!" but the bartender said "Get outta here! We don't serve your kind here!" So the string left, but he was thirsty, and he really wanted a beer, so he messed up his hair real badly and looped himself around until he had tied himself into a knot. When the string went back into the bar, the bartender looked at him suspiciously and said "Aren't you that worthless piece of string I just threw outta here?" No, the string replied, "I'm a frayed knot!" (ba-dum, chh.)

I was meeting my brother and dad for lunch one Wednesday, like I do most Wednesdays, and I was driving through a parking lot. As I was driving, looking for a spot, a rather large truck started backing out of her spot. I didn't have time to react, and neither did the driver of the truck. About a second after the backing started, there was an audible "crunch". It was very sad. But luckily, the lady had fantastic insurance and Augustus got a new fender/bumper. :)

Dauntless was great until we accidentally crashed the build (sorry!).

Phoenix Covenant was an awesome tactics card game that felt like something you could just get absolutely enthralled with.

Has Been Heroes was a fun little game that I felt was betrayed a bit by the control scheme of the demo. I'll probably pick it up on Steam at some point in the near future.

Game of Thrones: Hand of the King was very easy to pick up and had a good amount of depth to its strategy. Of note: It was the only game I had my heart set on buying to the point that when no one on the show floor had it I went to Amazon.

Gingerdead was an interesting little tower defense game that was fun but random. Not quite Munchkin random, but random enough that it cooled me on it.

Sentinels of the Multiverse Ok I'm cheating on this one since Sentinels isn't exactly new or unheard of, but it was my first time playing and I had an absolute blast.

Welp, guess I'll tell my friend not to play Essentials.

u/voodoochile78 · 3 pointsr/rpg

If you play Pathfinder, then note that they put all their rules and bestiary online for free and so you can save some serious dough. You can then spend your money on things like battle mats, paper miniatures, and adventure modules. They have an upcoming beginners box that would probably be perfect for you:

If you play D&D 4th Edition, you kind of have to choose between the original line and "Essentials" line (it's very confusing). Personally I say go with the Essentials line because it is easier, cheaper, and (to me at least) "feels" more like what D&D is supposed to be like. WotC doesn't publish anything online for free like Paizo, so you'll have to buy some stuff. I recommend:

  • At least one copy of Heroes of the Fallen Lands (class book for fighters, clerics, wizards and rogues: ~$14 on Amazon
  • Optional: At least one copy of Heroes of the Fallen Kingdoms (class book for rangers, druids, paladins and warlocks): ~$14 on Amazon.
  • Semi-Optional At least one copy of the Rules Compendium:~$14 on Amazon. The reason I list this as semi-optional is because most of the rules you'll need as a beginner are contained in the class guide books
  • Monster Vault. This contains monster stats and a whole bunch of tokens. ~$20 on Amazon.

    If no one wants to play a ranger, druid, paladin or warlock at first you can skip the one book and meet your $60 budget. Eventually you'll probably want to get a Dungeon Master guide of some sort. The kind of information in those books is mostly generic advice on how to run games and handle personalities, so it's possibly to buy an older used copy from the original line even though you are playing Essentials. Hell, since it's just generic advice, you could even buy the Pathfinder guide (which is amazingly well written) and use it for D&D.

    In summary - I think it's easier for you to meet your budget by going with Pathfinder, since they publish a lot of material for free, leaving you to spend your money on the adventure modules which is where all the fun is anyways. It's unanimous that Pathfinder does a much better job on published adventures too, since they are a company that started off as an adventure publishing company and that is their strength. However, D&D 4e (especially Essentials) is much easier to play, but you won't have as much money left over to spend on adventures (and those adventures kind of suck).
u/PghDrake · 3 pointsr/DnD

For miniatures, be warned that the Heroclix and Mage Knight minis, while useable, are mostly larger than the 1" standard width (for a medium character or creature) - this is generally not that big of a problem but if you're going with modular terrain it means they may not fit well, especially along with other miniatures beside them.

Ebay is a good choice for miniatures, especially if you have particular needs for certain things - you want that male elf archer in leather armor, or are you looking for a beholder? You can find and get them there. Here's my favorite seller for these things, shipping is definitely reasonable and the choices are expansive:

Another option to miniatures are tokens, and they are much, much cheaper. These are small cardboard circles that fit a 1" block as standard size (larger creatures will fill more, of course). The best starter set for this for a DM is the Monster Vault, but there are a ton of others as well. I suggest ebay for these for the most part, there are some that sell them by the sheet and others that sell the full boxed sets. You can get these for characters as well as monsters. Here's a link to the Monster Vault so you can see what you get with it:

Cheapest and most versatile "professional looking" option for the map / terrain is a chessex battlemat - make sure you have WET ERASE markers, not dry erase and keep it clean between adventures. Below are links to one of their mats (there are other sizes, just search on amazon) and to some excellent markers:

Cheapest option for modular-type terrain would be tiles. These are cardboard "grids" that most often have designs on them and come in different sizes. The best starter set out there is the Dungeon Tiles Master Set - The Dungeon. It has a lot of tiles and is pretty versatile, at least for base grid options like dungeons and general floors. There are a ton of other options for them - again I suggest you look on ebay for these because you can often find used ones that are in perfect shape sold as a set, or even individual tiles if there's something in particular you need. This is the link to the aforementioned base set on amazon so you can see what it has:

If you want to spend more money and go with something much more dynamic, there are 3-d modular sets ranging from paper to near-stone like quality but they can cost a ton. I have a large set of Dungeonstone ( that I bring out and always get oo's and ahh's. But they're heavy to carry around a lot, especially if I need the whole set. Another option, that's generally slightly more expensive than dungeonstone is Dwarven Forge. You can look them up - but I only mention this in case you decide to spend more money than you want to at this point. :)

Good luck! I hope this helps.

Guillotine is fantastic. My friends always ask for that one at game night :)

Timeline has become a new favorite to pull out in-between longer games. We're all in our mid-twenties and enjoy trying to remember our high school history and science classes but I think this would be a good game for Redditors that are looking for games to play with their kids as well. There are a few alternate decks--you can mix and match; they're not true "expansions." Bonus: it comes in a very attractive, small, metal tin and is very portable!

Citadels is another card game that can be played with 2-7 players (though it's honestly better with at least 4). First person to build up their medieval-themed city ends the game, however, all players then count points for their city landmarks (so the biggest city is not necessarily the winning city.) It gets a little madcap as you change "profession" (each with their own special ability) every round but I really enjoy it.

For the Redditor with a darker sense of humor, get Gloom ! The creator actually came up with the idea for the game because his wife didn't like being "mean" to other players in games. In this game, you have 4 spooky families that you literally have to kill with kindness! It's quirky and another one that gets asked for fairly frequently at game nights. It's best with 4 players but there are expansion packs available to gain new families and fit more players in.

Wits and Wagers is a trivia game that isn't, where everyone gets a white board and a marker and has to write either a number or date according to the trivia question on the card (how many feet tall is the Statue of Liberty, etc.) Then you arrange the boards and bet with chips on which one you think is correct--the closest answer wins, everyone is dealt chips, and it goes on for 7 rounds in total. Highly recommended!

As someone who looks forward to having the occasional quiet night in with my boyfriend, I find that there are a lot of games that say they can be 2 player but aren't actually any good with any fewer than 3 or 4 players. Lost Cities is a very good 2 player only game where you're playing as much against yourself as the other player. The Amazon reviews are all more or less indifferent or negative so I had put off buying it but after playing it during a visit with a friend, I knew I had to have it. Mr. Jack , though pricier at $30.47 is another very good 2 player only game of cat and mouse. (I haven't tried the pocket version, which is less expensive, but it seems to have favorable reviews.)

OP has a great list so I hope it's "the more the merrier" with my additions (not trying to step on any toes!)

u/casact921 · 3 pointsr/magicTCG

I'm glad you posted, as you bring a valuable perspective to the conversation. You may be getting downvotes because you're not addressing the whole "hate" issue. You believe MtG is not as good as other games - Netrunner for example - and you have your reasons, but it doesn't sound like you'd ridicule or "nerd-shame" someone for playing Magic. In fact, OP mentions friends who play Catan all night will laugh at him/her for playing Magic. Catan is even worse than Magic for resource-screwing you out of productive gameplay! So poor game mechanics is not the reason for the Magic-hate in the original post.

That's all I got. As an aside, I bought Netrunner (base game? I dunno. it's this product) this past year, have yet to play it. It looks fun, and as soon as I find someone willing to sit down and learn it with me, I will play!

u/abeclancy · 3 pointsr/gaming

As others have mentioned, Magic can be very expensive. I know how to play, it's quite fun, but never spent any money on it.

However, board games and card games are very cool! And offer great opportunities to hang out and get along with other people. I would recommend also giving your son another game to try and tangentially redirect his interests a bit. There are some quite nice two-player games that you could play against him at, providing a great opportunity to spend time with him.

Netrunner is a quite good 2-player game, where both players play completely differently from one another (I forget the phrase for this). Tash-Kalar, while sounding quite strange, is a rather enjoyable game in which you have to position minor units in order to spawn larger units. Galaxy Trucker (another Vlaada Chvatil game) makes you build your own spaceship then recklessly pilot them into asteroid fields and lasers to make a cargo delivery.

But no matter what you do, there's one thing to keep in mind. If your son is interested in the game and wants to play it, then get HIM to learn about the game and teach it to YOU. Otherwise, make sure that YOU learn about it first and teach HIM about it (and be excited about it!). If you're both apathetic about it, it probably won't go anywhere.

u/wakasm · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Android Netrunner is a Living Card Game. It's packaged more like a board game.

The core set comes in a big box... but once you learn how to play it, you can easily put 1 or 2 decks in deck boxes and and the extra bits in another one, and leave everything you won't use inside the box.

  • This game right now is very popular
  • Each side plays differently, so you have two things to master learning
  • Core set comes with 7 decks basically to get you started (3 for one side, 4 for the other)
  • You CAN deck build by pulling cards from one deck to the other to a point, which can keep the game very fresh
  • There are expansions should you enjoy it enough to explore more
u/claypigeon-alleg · 3 pointsr/matheducation

There are some board games that encourage abstract or mathematical thinking.

I slowly bought 5 decks of the Set card game, which is good for a couple days' distraction (especially if kids shuffle in and out through the week).

Combination finding games like Sushi Go will also get some mileage.

If you have a smaller class and longer periods, 6-player Settles of Catan will lead to a good discussion on probability (and how life isn't fair because no one is rolling 8).

u/Zifna · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

I'm not greendot, but you'd probably have good success with the one I mentioned: Set. The way the game works is you're trying to make sets of three cards that either all match or all differ on four characteristics (color, shape, number, and shading). An easy set from the Amazon photo would be the empty red ovals that differ in number. I'm not seeing a really brainmelting set in their photo, but an example would be single shaded purple diamond, two empty red ovals, and three filled green triangles.

When the five-year-old's called "SET!" three times in a row the 18- to 40-year-olds around the table tend to start questioning their self-worth. =)

u/B_DOG_OUT · 3 pointsr/boardgames

guillotine is a really great game that's cheap. great for non-gamer types, too

u/PinkAnigav · 3 pointsr/boardgames

>Guillotine – $13.99 - 2-5 Players, 15-20 mins
Fun head to head card game


u/hmbmelly · 3 pointsr/TrollYChromosome

You should try Dominion too (if you want more tabletops to consider). It's really fun, and it's easy to get new people into it.

Also, what cider?

u/Capn_Crotch · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Hahaha yeah. I discovered Dominion last year. I now own every expansion and have made my own custom wood-burned box to store everything. That's a whole different post, though. :-)

Edit: Just realized you might be referring to League of Legends, like /u/LeeeSin was - I was talking about the Dominion card game.

u/AvocadoButters · 3 pointsr/Boardgamedeals

There are a lot of good options. I enjoy all of these with 2 players, and all except 7 Wonders Duel scale well with more players. Just pick 3 that are close in price to maximize the deal.

Castles of Burgundy $29

Dominion $30

7 Wonders Duel $24

San Juan $26

Carcassonne $21

u/talljoe87 · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Here are a couple of options I have been enjoying:


Small World

Power Grid


Most of these are slightly out of your price range, but you get what you pay for. If you are willing to spend slightly more, you open up a whole new world of possibilities.

If you do want to stick to cheaper options, Fluxx or Exploding Kittens is always a good, fun choice.

u/BreakInc · 3 pointsr/gaming

Dead of Winter is a great game, takes quite a while to set up though, and maybe not really a game that you can play casually.
Dominion is more of a card game, but there are many expansions.
Following the card game theme, you also have Legendary. Both Legendary and Dominion are deck building games, Legendary is Marvel themed and I believe have other versions/expansions.
Superfight is a debating game, I really enjoy playing this with a lot of people, I got into an hour debate with my dad over who would win in a fight, a samurai, or a 7 member boy band.

I have some more recommendations that just aren't coming to mind right now. If you want to know more about a particular game, feel free to PM me. I really love Board games.

u/mave_of_wutilation · 3 pointsr/boardgames

As expected, most are pretty poor. Here are a few people might consider.

u/bentrophy · 3 pointsr/boardgames

As others have said, Ultimate Werewolf, The Resistance, and The Resistance Avalon are all good. Other options for this type of secret-role/party game are Bang! and Samurai Sword.

Battlestar Galactica is another popular game with secret roles. However, it is much longer and more complex than the other games I mentioned.

u/eerongal · 2 pointsr/dndnext

The pathfinder bestiary boxes are usually considered highly prized by many for a price-to-minis ratio.

I personally use and prefer game mash tokens as they're pretty cheap (about 60 cents a pop) and look really nice.

Sometimes you can find an old D&D 4E monster vault on sale for cheap, but that's getting much more rare these days as they've been out of print for a while. It comes with a pretty good number of tokens.

And as others have said, you can use various objects (washers, candy, etc.) instead of tokens/minis in a pinch.

Edit: in the past, i've also made some pretty good use out of fish tank glass beads.

u/giantsparklerobot · 2 pointsr/rpg

Answers to your questions in order:

  1. You may want to pick up other books in the Essentials line. As a DM start with the Rules Compendium and you may want the Monster Vault as well. Both of these books have a lot of the same material as the old Core rulebooks but with up to date errata and the monsters in the Monster Vault are also written far better than those in the original Monster Manual. The Core rulebook you might want to get is the Player's Handbook since your players may want to use options out of that. The Essentials series of Player Handbooks are fully compatible with the Core book but the Core book has more options and has more complicated abilities like Rituals.

  2. You don't really need the DMG2 or the later Player's Handbooks. A lot of the material in the DMG2 was folded into the Essentials Rules Compendium or DM's Kit. I think the DM's kit is a better buy than the DMG2 since you get more tokens, some adventure modules, a book with monsters, and a DM screen. Note that if you get the Monster Vault and DM's Kit you'll end up with some duplicate monsters (stats and tokens) or ones that are only slight variations. The later Player's Handbooks have more class and race options for players so as a DM you probably don't need them. Let your players pick them up and share with the group. If you've got the money you can obviously pick them up but you don't need them.

  3. Every square on the D&D maps represents a 5'x5' square. So if someone is four squares away they are 20' from your character. Starting out I would get used to using a grid for combat situations. Those numbers are there to help you come up with consistent travel times and distances for your game. When your player asks how far they can travel in a day you can give them an internally consistent answer. You can have characters move at the speed of the plot if you want though. What I like to do for long distance travel is make it a Skill Challenge. Say characters need to get to a town several miles away. Their normal walking rate would say how long they could get their normally but if they hurried I'd make them make some endurance checks. If they passed their checks they could run the distance and get there in half the time.

  4. A staple of the classic D&D adventure is finding awesome loot in those dangerous dungeons the characters are exploring. Gold is kind of abstracted in the game. In the Rules Compendium and DM's Kit book you'll find suggestions for rewarding your players with gold and items. You can have them just find gold and other valuables and let them buy stuff back at town in Final Fantasy style or have them find magic items worth that much gold down in the dungeon. Some DMs like to ask for shopping lists from the players, magic items they want for their character, to give them some ideas about what they find inside the dungeons. It sucks as a player if you fight with a sword for the DM have you find a +1 quarterstaff. Magic items all have levels which tell you what level of character for which the item is appropriate. You can give a character an item a little above their level but don't give a level 5 PC a level 28 magical armor.
u/Ultrahuntr · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

I have this and this in my inventory, so I have LOADs of tokens at my disposal. If I don't have a particular token I want, I just pick something close to it and say "these orcs are actually drow rangers" or whatever. It's usually not a huge deal, and if you're used to playing TotM style anyway, it shouldn't be an issue at all.

Also, as a note, with some looking around you should be able to find those two book/token sets relatively cheap. Even if you're not playing 4e, the books contain lore you can use and the tokens are gorgeous and great quality.

u/3Vyf7nm4 · 2 pointsr/dndnext

I only ever played a couple of sessions of tabletop 4e, but I had purchased the 4e Essentials Monster Vault which looks similar to this.

One thing they have that your set doesn't is that monsters that are often encountered in groups (goblins, wolves, etc.) are numbered. It's a small thing, but it's helpful. I had a token goblin "graduate" to an NPC during a run-through of LMoP. The party had found an RP solution to the Yeemik problem, and I decided that the goblin token labeled "3" would be Yeemik's "runner" who would help set their plan in motion. Because he was no longer fodder, he was graduated to an actual mini - but the party continued to refer to him as "3" for the rest of the session.

u/SaltedDice · 2 pointsr/DnD

If I remember correctly they produced the updated stats in the Monster Vault box.

u/sockpuppetprime · 2 pointsr/rpg

For D&D4e, I recommend starting with Essentials. Personally, I prefer 4e because it has balance and encourages working together. You can get the 4e Red Box, but it is slightly inconsistent with everything else and will only take you so far. Anyway, here's a minimal shopping list:

  • Heroes of the Fallen Lands
  • Rules Compendium
  • Monster Vault

    The Essentials DM kit is also good. With the exception of the Red Box, all 4e material is compatible across the board, so adding in new player options or DM stuff is as easy as picking up a supplement or getting a DDI subscription.

    If you've never played before, WotC holds an "Encounters" programs on Wednesday evenings at local gaming stores. It is specifically designed to introduce players to D&D as well as sell their latest product. If you live in the DC metro area, I can give you some pointers on where to go, if you're interested.
u/Aglardulin · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Check out Citadels ( for a 2-7 player game that combines hidden roles and city building in an engaging, light manner.
I believe it's around $20

I'd also second Love Letter and Resistance, which should bring you around $40

u/xenapan · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm going to date myself but I'm still a kid at heart!

One of my first gaming memories ever and definitely one of the reasons why I love games.. Back in the ooold days of computers when 16mbs was alot of memory. My dad taught me how to put together his first computer. There was this game called LOOM. You cast spells by playing music and found and learned spells by picking up the right notes by solving puzzles with spells. :D Nowadays I'm getting more into boardgames so here's one of the new ones i've recently found ooor... something i've been wanting to try

u/mrselkies · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Weymouth, MA 02190


  • Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Rumble at Castle Tentakill (played twice, great condition)
  • Citadels (2000 version - opened but never played, great condition)
  • Munchkin & Munchkin Booty (played once, great condition)
  • Pirate Fluxx & Fluxx Dice (both played once, great condition)
  • Pixel Tactics (opened but never played, great condition)
  • The Resistance (played ~5 times, great condition, includes Inquisitor expansion)
  • Superfight w/ Purple Deck and Core Expansion 1 (played 3-4 times, great condition. couple cards show very slight wear)
  • Sushi Go Party! (played once, great condition)

  • Paypal
u/OutlierJoe · 2 pointsr/boardgames

But you are literally saying the exact same thing xTheOOBx was saying other than "I don't agree".

If the game is well stocked, it is significantly cheaper than local stores. If it isn't well stocked, it is only a little bit cheaper than your local stores. The only exception is MayFair games, where they have a cap on their retail discount.

And for what it is worth:

BGG Top 10

  1. 26% Off

  2. OOP/BPR

  3. 35% Off

  4. 31% Off

  5. 27% Off

  6. 25% Off

  7. 37% Off

  8. 28% Off

  9. 32% Off

  10. 23% Off

    Some other games I just stumbled across.

    24% Off,
    31% Off, 34% Off

    It looks like when I said "frequently between 30% and 40%, I was pretty damn close. It's okay to want to support the local game stores, as we all have said, they provide something more than just the game. I visit the same exact stores you do, and I know "not that much cheaper" is down right false. Buying games online is almost a buy 2-3 get 1 free - and that's not considering any significant sale.
u/slightlyalcoholic · 2 pointsr/secretsanta

Space Cadets - really fun co-op game, much lighter but very long.

Agricola - Farm themed worker placement, Longer game as well, very component heavy and very fun (If you happen to go anywhere near this, be sure to tell your giftee hes going to hate this game with a passion until he understands the rules)

Android Netrunner - Very in depth game from my understanding. I havent played it But my boyfriend and his circle of friends love it and say it's a very good game. (They're all D&D players)

CitOW Expansion: the horned rat - I don't know much about this game, but from what I've read ill be checking it out, this is the first expansion I believe.

Blood Bowl: Team manager - This is probably my favorite game to date, plays up to 4. Fantasy themed fantasy football basically. It sounds really silly, but the game play and the actual idea is amazing. It's really easy to pick up and a pretty fun quick game.

Hope that helps, if you come across any games you have questions about, let me know :) and if I think of anything else I'll let you know!

u/flatlinedwilson · 2 pointsr/Netrunner

Great way to scratch the itch if you're having trouble finding/affording cards.

But the Core will only cost you $30 on the US Amazon.

u/Batwaffel · 2 pointsr/Cyberpunk
u/AmuseDeath · 2 pointsr/boardgames

25 pounds! You should be okay.

And as far as needing the data packs go, you do not need them. I play with a friend who is pretty skilled and there is a TON of game here. In this box alone, there are 3 Runners and 4 Corporations, meaning 12 matchups alone. Each matchup is very different and interesting as well. There are also 2 different sides to play in this game. You can either play as the aggressive and nimble runner or the slow and brooding corporation.

It is a very intense game and one of my favorites.

u/Starstar1010 · 2 pointsr/Cruise

Just One is FABULOUS and takes two seconds to learn! You can easily take it out of the box and travel with it in a baggy!

Avalon/Werewolf social deduction type games are fun for big groups!

Age of War is a small push your luck die roll game (not the best for a big group but for a portion of the group)

Box of Rocks is a trivia type game where it is all humans versus a box of rocks

Set is good solitaire or with big groups but is going to cause lots of head scratching. It's good for those who like puzzles!

Red7 is a personal favorite but doesn't play to 10 people

u/sillymath22 · 2 pointsr/math

The set game along with this book. Its fun for all ages such a simple game but always a favorite for anyone I have shown it too. Great to play with groups also.

My favorite in the past year or so has got to be Pirate Fluxx! WIth a good group of people I've never laughed so hard in my life Link

u/jbhalper · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Set. It was $9.50 when I looked a few days ago, it's at $10.67 now. Looking through your favorite games site might turn it up for just under $10.

No real depth, but generally a hit in groups where people can float in and out of games quickly.

u/wanderer333 · 2 pointsr/Parenting

Apples to Apples, Dixit, Jungle Speed, Pictionary, Anomia, SET, Loaded Questions, and Jenga are a few that come to mind where the adults wouldn't necessarily have an advantage over the kids. Also Fluxx and We Didn't Playtest This are both hilarious card games that would be perfect for kids in that age range, but I have a blast playing them with other adults on a regular basis too; Spaceteam looks like another good one but I haven't personally played it. If you're looking for more involved strategy games, Ticket to Ride and Carcassone would be fine for that age, just require more of a learning curve. Cranium and Quelf are silly games that involve a variety of tasks (drawing, acting, singing, trivia, etc) and although they're supposedly aimed at adults, kids love them too (just skip cards that are too hard; or you could also consider the kids' versions of both games, Cranium Cadoo and Quelf Jr.). Uno (or Crazy Eights with a regular deck of cards) is always a classic, and you can always play charades or the category game!

edited to add: not sure about a good choose your own adventure story, but Mad Libs are always fun!

u/dougmansion · 2 pointsr/boardgames

It's more simple than the games you listed, but I've never gotten a bad review from Guillotine. It's quick to learn, all the cards say what they do, it's funny, it's colorful, and has the right balance of randomness and strategy that lets experienced players play better, but other players always have a chance to get back in the game.

Set is another game I'd recommend, though it is a bit tougher. It's all about finding a pattern and calling it first, so usually adults/older kids have the advantage (though you'd be amazed how fast kids pick up on that stuff).

In my experience, Puerto Rico is very long and very difficult to master. Dominion is rather light and fast, but the interactions between cards take time to learn. As juniperapolo said, Pandemic is good (all the players team up against the board), though it can be a bit random and intense sometimes. Roborally is ok; it's a bit long, and, in my experience, one person ends up way ahead by the second or third checkpoint, and everyone else has no chance of catching up for the entire second half of the game. And I'm all for teaching kids Arkham Horror ;)

Also, if they have Catan, maybe getting the Seafarer's expansion might be good, or the 5-6 player expansion.

u/lazzerini · 2 pointsr/boardgames

These are great suggestions. Other light, cheap games I enjoy are:

  • Hanabi - great co-op game about fireworks. Very popular.
  • Coloretto - well-designed set-collecting game with press your luck mechanism.
  • Guillotine - fun silly card game about rival executioners during the French revolution, vying to chop off the heads of the highest ranked nobles.
u/Sinnocent · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite game is hard to choose. On PC it'd be Dragon Age series/Mass Effect Series/Elder Scrolls series all tied. Board game is Arkham Horror.

My item choices: a game for fun, a game for parties, or a game for the love of Cthulhu! You choose :D

u/RedWowPower · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Guillotine is my favorite little card game, cheap to buy and everyone I've played it with has loved it. 2-5 players

u/EmmaBourbon · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

speaking of the french revolution have you ever heard of the game Guillotine

It's my favorite simple card game where the object of the game is to cut off the heads of people in power. It's hilarious... and fun.. and a great party game for 2-6 players. I've held a couple contests here and there gifting this game.. that is how much i love it. lol

u/ketokate-o · 2 pointsr/xxketo

Board games are awesome. I wish my FH and I could play video games together, but I get motion sick from 90% of the ones we try. Board games, luckily, don't elicit the same response. We recently started playing one called Guillotine that's pretty fun!

edit: technically, Guillotine is a card game, not a board game. Close enough!

Dinner was my only meal for the day, which is the only reason it looks so nice! 😆

u/StellaMaroo · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

That is too cute. I love Kevin because he is so smart and funny. :)

I went into your movie list and chose The Hobbit. I actually just watched this a couple of days ago and it was awesome. Long but awesome.

Here's a card game around 20 bucks from my list - of course you don't have to buy it. But you should consider putting it on your wishlist because it's super fun!

u/FliryVorru · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I personally don't want anything, but I want to get this for my wife because she's been in a gaming mood lately and we're running low on "new-ish" games to play with friends.

Congrats for getting trained like a boss!

u/Philarete · 2 pointsr/AskMen

Favorite game right now is probably Insurgency. I'm also really into Blade and Soul (my first MMO). Favorite game of all time is probably Europa Universalis IV, though Civilization IV and V are close behind. For "board" games, my current top game would be Dominion. My law school friends play this all the time. Personally, I would prefer to be playing Risk, but I like playing with my friends.

I'm sorry I have no good way to show my crappy handwriting. so here is a puppy

u/chipbloch · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Based on what you've written, I would recommend Dominion, for 28 dollars here on Amazon.

Dominion is a great standalone game, but it also has a wealth of (mostly) excellent expansions, so it's a game she can play for a very long time. It's easy to learn and teach, and it scales decently well from 2-4 players.

If she doesn't have any deckbuilders, Dominion invented and, in my opinion, perfected the genre. It's an absolutely superb game, and I've logged at least 200 plays with my different sets and expansions. And if she does, Dominion is still the best one around.

Do you know what games they have? Three of my favorite inexpensive games (all under $20) are Love Letter (this one comes in different themes, too, like The Hobbit and Batman), Codenames, and Bang.

  1. When my parents were dating, my dad told my mom she had to make a good pie. My mom makes the best fucking pies I have ever had. I need to get this for her for reals. Transport all the times!

  2. My family loves to play party games at holidays. One of my cousins has Cards Against Humanity, but we really need a copy here because this is where all the parties are. The one my mom picked for her little brother… I am still disturbed by it.

  3. When my family travels together, we all rotate books and discuss them. When we were in Spain, we all read The Time Traveler's Wife. I never watched the movie because the book was too good. My mom and I would totally read Takedown Twenty because we adore the Stephanie Plum novels. They might be tacky brain candy, but you need that from time to time.

  4. No question. Sister Act

  5. I tried really hard to find the fragranced Strawberry Shortcake dolls I had as a kid. That smells takes me right back to the 80s. Then I remembered that I liked Strawberry Lip Smackers because they reminded me of the same thing. It's a two step situation, here. But I think it works.

  1. You NEED to get a board game collection when people come over to your house! My husband and I have an awesome collection of old-school video games and over the past year we've really gotten into board games. It wasn't until we got some really good board games that we had friends coming to visit more constantly! The Resistance is a great 5-10 player game and 7 Wonders is a beautiful 3-7 player game full of strategy. With the right group, Cards Against Humanity is hilarious.

  2. DOES PIXAR COUNT?! I have so many Monsters Inc plushies! :) I also love Aladdin! Great movie, loved growing up with the tv show, and a prince with some personality! WOO!

  3. A pug napping with a teacup pig <3

  4. Happy early birthday! PIXELCHARKATTACK

    I also just caught up on all of the Adventure Time episodes recently. OMG SO GOOD! I like how it went from silly, incoherent adventures to a legit, interesting story line!
u/bridget1989 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm still a kid at heart!

My most recent favorite memory was playing Cards Against Humanity at my friend Sarah's most recent Birthday party. We took so long in between rounds because we were all socializing so much, which was a good thing! We so rarely connect to that depth with real human beings because we're so technology-centric, and a "like" on a photo is supposed to tell soneone, "Hey! How are you doing? I'm great. You look nice today. I hope you have a good week..."

My other favorite is when I brought my 3 Gameboys to my college graduation and passed along my games and systems to my fellow teaching graduates. We played Tetris, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Mickey Mouse, Pokemon, etc. together during the 3-hour ceremony and goofed around in the back row like hooligans!

I absolutely love being a horrible person, so much that I hate it.

So of course, this would be my item of choice. All the benefits of being evil, without all the consequences.

After a tough day I always feel better when I come home, throw on my yoga pants and a big comfy hoodie, order some take out (preferably Bob Evans - because comfort food), and get snuggled under my Brookstone N.A.P. blanket with my hubby and our beags.

On a related note, if I've had a rough day at school I always make a "good news" phone call before I leave the building. Meaning, I'll call a student's parents and share progress the child has made or something great they recently did in class. Sharing positive messages about my students and hearing the pride in their parents' voices always lifts my spirits and reminds me of how much I truly love my job.

Playing [CAH] ( tends to make me feel pretty friggin' wonderful too! ;)

Thanks for the uplifting contest!

u/Febtober2k · 2 pointsr/Cruise

I cruised solo on Norwegian once and had a great time.

Bring some party activities that'll be fun to break out when you meet people and make friends. You can't go wrong with a basic deck of cards (people will invariably wind up suggesting some sort of drinking game), and I really highly suggest Cards Against Humanity.

u/AnyelevNokova · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Ever play Apples to Apples? Same concept. If not...

There are two kinds of cards: white cards, and black cards. These are separated into stacks. Every player has a number of white cards in their hand: this amount varies depending on whether you're playing by the book rules or house rules.

Every turn, one player draws a black card ((this position is rotated around the group.)) Black cards have a short phrase or question on them, like

>What do old people smell like?

>What will I bring back in time to convince people that I am a powerful wizard?

>In Michael Jackson's final moments, he thought about ____.

The remaining players in the game will then put down a white card from their hand that they think the person who played the black card will pick as the best answer. White cards, like black cards, have many different things printed on them, like

>The hardworking Mexican.


>Natalie Portman.

>Michelle Obama's arms.

The white cards are shuffled up, and the person who played the black card lays them all out and then selects a winner. The winner tacks the black card and creates a pile of black cards that they've won. The person to reach X cards (again, depending on rules) wins.

There are a couple nuance rules, like betting black cards to play more white cards, the haiku, etc. But that's the jist of it.

Personally, our group loves playing this game. It says it's a card game for horrible people for a reason. You will come up with racist, sexist, disgusting, and downright awful combinations of cards. You can play it straight, of course, but often the humor turns "dark." It's fun, but it's definitely not a game to play with, say, your conservative Christian parents.

We have the actual game and a couple expansions because we play with a larger group. However, I know you can print your own game off the internet. You can buy it off Amazon as well.

Oh neat! Seems fun. Fear cuts deeper than swords.

  1. Something that is grey. - Wishful Thinking list
  2. Something reminiscent of rain. - Priority Items list
  3. Something food related that is unusual. - Health/Beauty list
  4. Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. - Priority Items list. For my cat Little because she gets urinary tract infections so I am always trying to find ways to keep her well hydrated.
  5. A book I should read! - DVDs/Books list. I've wanted to read it since it came out, just haven't gotten the chance to. The movie was fabulous too.
  6. An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! - Not on any of my lists
  7. Something related to cats. - Priority Items list.
  8. Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. - On a Private wishlist because the price is ridiculous.
  9. A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. - Already Owned. Because it's my favorite movie.
  10. Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. - Wishful Thinking list. Because I could throw it at their faces.
  11. Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. - Health/Beauty list. Because I get bad back pain and muscle knots from my scoliosis and they can sometimes prevent me from doing what I need to do properly. Alternate from a Private wishlist because I may have to quit my job due to respiratory irritation from the chemicals.
  12. One of those pesky Add-On items. - Health/Beauty list. I hate Add-on Items.
  13. The most expensive thing on your list. - On a Private wishlist simply because it is so expensive. It's my dream item because I want to replace my gram's old one which I accidentally shattered the bowl for. /:
  14. Something bigger than a bread box. - Priority Items list
  15. Something smaller than a golf ball. - Health/Beauty list
  16. Something that smells wonderful. - Priority Items list
  17. A (SFW) toy. - Miscellaneous list. SFW to look at, not necessarily to play haha.
  18. Something that would be helpful for going back to school. - Wishful Thinking list
  19. Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. - Miscellaneous list. I have always been obsessed with writing lists. I have these markers and I love them but a lot of them are dried out/won't write. I haven't thrown them away because it makes me sad.
  20. Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. - Priority Items list. A bag that I absolutely crave with every fiber of my being. I want it soooo bad. It's pretty and comes in other pretty colors and looks cute and comfy and wonderful.


  21. Anything that has my real name on it. I don't know your real name, sadly. ): Maybe someday!
  22. Anything made in Oregon. - Filmed in Oregon.

    Any of the things I have noted being on Private lists I would be happy to send you the link to for proof can be seen here. :) Also your wishlist names made me chuckle. :D

    Also also Happy Birthday to my dad! <3

Munchkin is a pretty fun game.

Surprise me if I win.

u/orejo · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have teen boys (14 and 16) and shockingly we have not yet seen the lego movie and would love to win a digital copy!

Your son sounds similar to mine in their taste profile, so I asked them what they liked as gifts when they were 12. Here are their thoughts:

  • 50 Dangerous Things book. My boys got this as a gift and decided to do all they could to accomplish all 50 of the things.

  • Munchkin. It's a card game that is easy to learn and fun to play as a family and with friends. My boys love it still!

  • Trip to Disneyland

    My recommendation (in addition to my kids) is based on his love of the titanic. Have you heard of Ernest Shackleton? He did a journey to the South Pole that was very much an adventure story about leadership and teamwork. There is a graphic novel about it that might be right for him (I haven't read it) and a larger book called Endurance.

    Good luck on the gifting!

Cards Against Humanity!
It would be perfect because I could just sit inside with my friends and/or family and play it all day!
The old man is snoring

u/elguitarro · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well my two favorite cards are from the second expansion of the game.

Those are "A bigger blacker dick" which is a classic and "The mere concept of Applebees." This is just because one of our friends LOVES to go to Applebees and we never understood why. Every time we want to go eat, he would always propose it. So when this card was played while he was being card czar we lost it.

Here is one of my blank cards, I don't like writing on them so I put little pieces of paper. It's between that one, "The gap between Rose Tyler's teeth" for my whovian friends and "Before taking a piss, yelling: "Squirtle! Use Water Gun!"

Awesome that you were able to go to PAX. It's too far from me but I'm really excited they just announced PAX South (which will be where I live.) Hopefully the CAH guys attend along with the Game Grumps.

u/okkraa · 2 pointsr/RandomActsofMakeup

We are all about 2-player games! Off the top of my head, we love Quarriors and DC Deck Building Game. Both can be played with groups of people but also work well with just the two of us. (There's a Marvel Deck Building Game too, but the gameplay is completely different and not as fun in my opinion. It's similar to Sentinels of the Multiverse where the team is fighting together to beat the enemy.)

u/Mentos14 · 2 pointsr/Boardgamedeals

Speaking of co-op games, it's hard not to recommend Hanabi now that it's less than $11 on Amazon Prime.

u/ThomasGeek · 2 pointsr/GiftIdeas

If he is into gaming you can't go too wrong with a steam gift card.

Just techy in general an amazon echo dot is an great for a techy and is ideal for your price

An amazon fire tv stick or Chromecast might be a good idea

If he is into Electronics and/or emulating he may like a Raspberry Pi (basically a tiny computer that you can do DIY electronics on or setup to play old nintendo games on). You could even setup the emulator for him and load him some games if you wanted to link here (pm me if you want to do this and need help with the install etc)

Board games could be a good idea if he is a gamer but it would depend on what kind of board games he likes. Some good ones of the top of my head though. Ticket to Ride, Coup or Catan

u/uptimefordays · 2 pointsr/goodyearwelt

Diplomacy is a favorite traditional board game, Coup is a multiplayer card game that while simple is pretty deep.

Edit: linked Diplomacy, pay the reviewer no mind. Diplomacy isn't that complicated!

u/Xzeno · 2 pointsr/boardgames

There's actually a good amount of fun games for under $40 on Amazon that I would suggest looking at.

u/Sayoshinn · 2 pointsr/boardgames

How about Jaipur or Hive Pocket? Mr Jack Pocket is also wonderful. Star Realms is the best micro game of the year IMHO, and scales past 2P with multiple decks. Coup is also a lot of fun and quick. I personally do not like Cheaty Mages at all.

u/WonkyFloss · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Assuming you want to spend half of your money:

Star Realms:

Sushi Go:

One is a deck builder like dominion, the other is drafting like 7Wonders. (If you want 4 player star realms pick up two copies). That is a grand total of $24/$36. If you add Coup OR/and Resistance/ Resistance Avalon:

Which are similar (made by the same people), you could be three games in for 40 bucks.

Then add a heavier game or two medium sized games-- check out TableTop, or our "What did you play this week" threads for some ideas-- and you come out with a nice collection of games (5 or six of them) for about 100 bucks.

I'm not saying you have to get these exact games, but think about a few smaller card games with a bigger game for the most bang for the buck.

The resistance (avalon preferably) is 100% worth it since it plays 5-10... but what about days when you only have 4, etc. Catan can't do all the work forever.

I can give better recs if you edit to add more info; even if it's just things like "I like space. The people I play with like space... and Pirates!"

u/rvncto · 2 pointsr/PSVR

these are cheap check them out. similar games, of bluffing, lying, socializing:


Love Letter... theres a batman version too

Boargame version Werewolves Inside (i think)

i thought the original game was called Werewolves Inside i mean.

u/GuyNoirPI · 2 pointsr/Gifts

Maybe something from Mouth?. I've been thinking about getting the bourbon chocolate sauce for one of my exchanges.

Also, depending on the family there are a lot of about 15 dollar card games that are really good. I suggest Sushi Go! which can be found at target a lot, Love Letter or Coup.

u/happybabo · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I recommend you Coup even though I have played it once. This game can be played by 2-6 players, and it usually lasts about 15 minutes. It's cheap and convenient because you can take it wherever you go. There are five characters: Duke, Assassin, Contessa, Captain, and Ambassador. Each card has a different ability. The point of the game is to get people to lose all their cards, and you will have to lie you have a certain card even though you do not.

I'm not really good at explaining, but here is more information about the game.

u/atouchofyou · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Coup is a card game based entirely on creating a government coup, including assassinating people. Hard to think of much worse than that.

u/ExpendableGuy · 2 pointsr/boardgames

If you enjoy Ascension, you'll probably also like Star Realms -- available on iOS here and Amazon here. It is strictly two player, but you can purchase an additional deck to have it play up to four.

/u/r2d8 getinfo

u/Scipion · 2 pointsr/slaythespire

Both Star Realms and Ascension are available on Steam and Android (don't know about iOS) I highly recommend giving them a play. You can find physical copies of those two, and Dominion at any local game store. Star Realms is especially a steal since you can just buy one small deck of cards and it comes with everything you need to play.

I seriously love Star Realms and look how stupid cheap it is. It's one of the most fun 1v1 games I know of. It's easy to learn and there is a ton of depth to game play. Plus some really great expansions and add-ons.

u/HappyTreesAndFrogs · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Well you have two options.

Either get the original game or the sequal Colony Wars. They should be around $15 each. They are both base games and play exactly the same so it doesn’t matter which one you pick up. If you like it then you can do a bit of research on where to go next.

Alternatively if you have a smart phone or a Steam account there is a free digital version on Android, iPhone, and Steam. The free version is you vs. the computer and a campaign mode. The paid version unlocks online and local multiplayer modes and additional campaign content. But the free version is enough to let you figure out if you actually want to buy the physical version.

u/squaresarerectangles · 2 pointsr/gaming

You may want to try Star Realms, it's not magic, but it's a fun deckbuilding game that doesn't require you buy a crap ton of stuff. Essentially each deck of cards is enough for two people, and you can add more decks to play with up to 6 people. The rules are easy so new players will be able to jump right in and have fun with you. Check it out :)

u/DaNugget1993 · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Alternatively sushi go! (Sushi Go! - The Pick and Pass Card Game

And love letter (Love Letter Boxed Edition

Are two of my favorite under thirty minutes games... if the boys cringe at the idea of love letter you can also get a Batman, Adventure Time, or Hobbit version to make it "manly"

u/DyceFreak · 2 pointsr/boardgames
u/REdEnt · 2 pointsr/boardgames

If you can find a local game store, I'd go and ask what their policy is on returns. You could just go with a gift card to the place, though I know that can be impersonal, but if they allow it on unopened games, I'd get him something small like Zombie Dice, Hive, Codenames, Forbidden Island, or Sushi Go (all between $5 and $20 generally). If he has the game he can return it for some dice, or something else he needs, but I think the thought of going out and researching what good games are out there is nice.

Sushi game

u/smashedkitten · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My lil bro is the shit. He graduated law school this year & is getting his masters in Vancouver, BC right now. Throughout the whole time he's put himself through school as a sushi chef (and a damn good one too!). Although he wants to practice law in Canada, his dream is to have a small sushi resturant and serve excellent food. This guy always achieves. I know he struggles with depression, health issues, etc, but he NEVER lets it get him down. & he knows about my struggles & is ALWAYS there to support me. He always knows the right thing to say, and he's fun to ague with. (he's a good lawyer) I love him. I'm so proud of him. He amazes me for his accomplishments. He's awesome!

Every year for Christmas I give him a Sushi themed gift. I wish I could afford an amazing knife, but those cost hundreds. Last year I gave him an Andrew Bell Sushi Oh-No print for his collection. This year I would like to give him Sushi Go! game, cos he loves games, or Midori Sushi Magnets, cos his fridge is covered in cool magnets.

He deserves it because he loves so much and works so hard & is such a great guy.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf. You've only got a couple of days till 4/20, but you might be able to find it or some other fun board game at a Toys-r-Us.

Exploding Kittens is another great one.


I'm going to fire up the smoker in the morning, and smoke a 6 lb chuck roast for making Pepper Stout Beef. Then people can make sandwiches in the afternoon.

u/Nymthae · 2 pointsr/AskUK

I bought some INSIDE3 cube puzzle thing. I've no idea if it'll hit the spot or not but looks interesting anyway. There also seems to be a site where you can trade them in so effectively upgrade your difficulty cheaper than just buying new ones, if she likes it!

As for other ideas... maybe something of a board/card game? Something like exploding kittens which is pretty easy to understand, has cute pictures, and largely seems to go down well with all audiences (read: might make having to suffer time with your family mildly more amusing). I bought this to play with friends and stuff but I showed it to my mum when a couple of people were over before and she still loves to mention how much fun it was. I've played it with colleagues etc. there's also a NSFW version if you have a sibling or someone who might prefer a bit more humour that way!

u/Mistress_Ella_Black · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This because I really like Rick & Morty along with games! 🤓

u/ShallanDavar82 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

As a Rick and Morty fan that is what I have to go with here! : )

We own the McFarlane building sets and they are pretty cheap, fun and cute (definitely not Legos but they aren't as bad as the star ratings would have you think at all).

Total Rickall is soo much fun and based on my favorite episode. You have to figure out who is a parasite and who isn't.

This collectible Rick is hilarious too (warning NSFW due to the bird being flipped)

Playing this game in a Rick and Morty version is sooo much fun!! These playing cards are great as well.

I am sure whatever you end up getting will make your husband very happy!! Happy shopping; hope my suggestions help you! : )

u/svenhoek86 · 2 pointsr/Games

Ya if you have a bunch of friends and an active social life it's a really good game. Just like Snipperclips. I couldn't play it single player for more than 10 minutes, but me and the roommates got together and smoked some stuff and drank some stuff, and Snipperclips was the highlight of the night.

That and the Total Rickall game my buddy found.

u/puttysan · 2 pointsr/CasualConversation

That would be fun, though you might have to write that one yourself. Total Rickall and Mr. Meeseek's Box O Fun exist, though.

u/ricctp6 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

/u/spidersam639, hear me out. Japanese snacks (dagashi) and a Rick and Morty board game? There doesn’t seem to be a nerdier mix. Also, if you like The Adventure Zone you should check out Brian Posehn’s D&D podcast called Nerd Poker. It’s hilarious, and they tend to be awesome at D\&D; they also talk a lot about metal music, old-school comedians, and Lord of the Rings. They like to mention everyone they know who had like one line in the movies lol

u/credditcardyougotit · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My late great grandmother was a survivor of the Leningrad Blockade. I was (am) her namesake, so I would always put in extra effort to visit her after school everyday as a teenager. She was an incredible person and a fantastic raconteur, letting slip these absurd adventures, but always in a passive, off-handed mode, as if they were afterthoughts.

Her facial expression whenever she'd mention escaping the Siege on the back of a supply truck, tearing across frozen over Lake Ladoga and watching other vehicles fall through the ice, or how she gave birth to my grandmother on a train, or the sight of cannibalism and the consumption of pets & pests during the Blockade, was always so calm and unaffected-- and I found this devastatingly magical.

Her stories and storytelling awoke me. They were like nothing else I knew then or know now. My entire family is very, very dear to me, but my great grandmother is special, somehow; not just to me, but to the shopkeepers that would slip her extra egg rations or the veritable battery of suitors that lined up at her doorstep, too.

[This is $10] ( Thanks for the contest.

u/SereneWisdom · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon


Though I don't have the actual set or the first two expansions, I'd really like to get the third edition of Cards Against Humanity.

u/showurnuts · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Okay so I feel weird suggesting this.. I like the idea of others commenting/voting.. but people are telling me to post, so I will. :x

  1. First and foremost, this Wacom tablet. I've been itching to get back into digital artwork along with my traditional stuff. (RA default)

  2. Kindle Fire HD... obviously, heh. But it would be for my fiance, since he needs a tablet. :3 (RA default)

  3. Bluetooth Keyboard Case for my tablet. (RA default)

  4. Dan Brown's Inferno Kindle edition (Media)

  5. Cute coat (Clothes)

  6. Ankle boots (Clothes~)

  7. theBalm nude tude palette (Makeup)

  8. Cards Against Humanity (RA default)

  9. CAH 2nd expansion (RA default)

  10. CAH Third Expansion (RA default)

  11. 20th century art book (Educational)

u/Cupcake_Kat · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Random Things!

Thanks for the contest!!! <3

u/spaghetti_emissary · 1 pointr/indianapolis

I have the following set, it should suit your needs:


    Here is price information from Amazon, for what is included:

    Item | Amazon Price
    --- | ---
    The Bigger Blacker Box | $15
    Cards Against Humanity | $25
    Cards Against Humanity: First Expansion | $10
    Cards Against Humanity: Second Expansion | $10
    Cards Against Humanity: Third Expansion | $10
    Cards Against Humanity: Fourth Expansion | $10

    You can "complete" the set by ordering expansions Five and Six on Amazon.

    The Bigger Blacker Box case has enough room to fit both additional expansions, if you take out the foam spacers. It also comes with black dividers, for helping organize.

    I have not done this, btw, but apparently if you cut open a specific place inside the lid of the Bigger Blacker Box, there is a special card inside. Something about big black cocks, naturally.

    Purchase price on Amazon for all of these items is $80 total. I will offer my set at $70. It is in excellent condition. We've only used it on two occasions.

    Also, I know people are probably wondering why I don't offer a larger discount. $70 for a used CAH set might seem "not generous enough". Here's my perspective though. a) This is a pretty comprehensive collection in excellent condition (most of the cards have never been used) and well organized, b) I don't care if I sell it or not, c) I suspect you might be interested in completing the collection anyway, and this collection gets you 80% of the way there, and d) you have a tight timetable.

    I live downtown. I work from home. PM me if you're interested, my schedule is flexible.
u/greath · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I don't know if it counts, but currently probably Hanabi. My friend describes it pretty well as "blind group solitaire where lying is part of the game." If that's not a "board game" enough, then probably Carcassonne, which has really simple rules but has a good depth of strategy. Or maybe chess.

u/AmoDman · 1 pointr/boardgames

Yup. Amazon's at $11.30 right now.

u/CityWithoutMen · 1 pointr/boardgames

Hanabi, most definitely (only two in stock!). For $15 you get one of the most unique co-op card games I've ever seen. I expecting/hoping to see it win the Spiel des Jares this year.

So much fun, and it's definitely a card game you can teach to anyone, and tailor the difficulty as you see fit.

u/Salanmander · 1 pointr/Christianity

Here, I'll help. =)

It really is a great game. Lots of interesting strategy that is very different from most games that are around.

u/Sparklebunny · 1 pointr/santashelpers

Hanabi is a cooperative game that is pretty good. Love Letter is another game I enjoy. Both are small and very portable.

u/Ratscallion · 1 pointr/OkCupid

Guillotine is really fun, but if you're hyper competitive it would be bad for a first date. There's a lot of "how much can I shit on my opponent" involved. Try a cooperative game like Hanabi. Everyone either wins or loses together.

u/UnfortunateTruths · 1 pointr/boardgames

Hanabi is a great, coop game that is about 10 dollars on Amazon right now. It plays between 2 and 5 players and is a lot of fun. It also is in a tiny box, so it makes it really easy to carry around. Definitely worth a buy.

u/Blasphemouse · 1 pointr/Frugal

Certainly (in general) the more pieces the game involves, the more costly it's going to be. There's definitely something to be said for having epic games with the immersion that the board and the pieces bring, but I'm also a fan of a number of more compact games.

They're mostly cards with maybe a couple chits, but they're all fantastic and bring a different experience. It's nice having a lower price point, taking up less room, and being more travel friendly -- especially when you're building a collection with friends and playing at each other's apartments/homes.

Game | Price | # Players
Love Letter | $6.84 | 2-4
Fairy Tale | $17 now; I picked it up for $13 | 2-5
Resistance | $15.13 | 5-10
Coup | $13.13 | 2-6
Hanabi | $10.13 | 2-5
Citadels | $19.95 | 2-7
Innovation | $18.30 | 2-4

We use dot us these Training Swords in my medieval combat class!

They also make a Shield

This steampunk flavored Cryptex Flash Drive might be appreciated! Useful and stylish in a similar vein to this Steampunk Watch
As for board games, I recommend Shadow Hunters, Splendor, and Coup

For tabletop games, you could get him A Nice Set of Color Coded Diece

When it comes to video games, this Retro Arcade Console Desk Toy could be a great work passtime with 200 games! Alternatively if you have a fridge or a metal workspace, Magnetic Tetris! for idle hands

Hope any of these help haha

u/sharp_as_a_marble · 1 pointr/gaming

I like this idea. It sounds like a fun concept but if you really want to make it right, then you're gonna have to play some card games. Study how different ones work. There's one I played that sounds a bit like yours but I'm having trouble remembering the name. I'll get back to you if I remember it.

EDIT: Coup. It was called Coup.

u/flapjackncoke · 1 pointr/Miniswap

Thank you, oh venerable Daemon Primarch.

After looking it up, it seems like a game I would have played with my 40k buddies. Not really the kind of thing I'd play with my fiancée. For just the two of us I'm thinking either cooperative games, or fairly quick to play. Things like Ticket to Ride or Pandemic (just going off descriptions and reviews).

We also play games with a few siblings and/or couples, but none of them gamers, per se. Games like [The Resistance] ( or [Coup] ( have been dabbled in, with great enjoyment. Cards Against Humanity as well. So I'm doubting anybody would be up for something as intense as Game of Thrones. But thank you for your offer.

u/BayreutherHell · 1 pointr/de

Geheimtipp für 3-6 Spieler die auf Strategie, Bluffen und sich gegenseitig umbringen stehen: Coup!

Ein Kartenspiel dass ich vor zwei Jahren entdeckt habe, in den USA super populär, hier noch nie irgendwo gesehen. Hab es Freunden gezeigt und wir haben ein Jahr lang nichts anderes mehr gespielt. Ganz kurz zusammengefasst: In 5-15min langen Runden nehmen Spieler mit ausgeteilten Karten verschiedene Rollen mit Fähigkeiten an und versuchen sich durch Aktionen nach und nach gegenseitig auszuschalten. Der Twist ist, dass jeder jederzeit auch lügen darf was das Zeug hält und behaupten darf jegliche Rolle zu haben und jegliche Aktion ausführen zu dürfen. Gleichzeitig darf aber jeder jederzeit jede ausgeführte Aktion anzweifeln, worauf der Verlierer dieser "Challenge" dann ein Leben verliert.

Das Spiel ist super kurzweilig, hat eine unglaubliche taktische Tiefe und zusammen mit Freunden die man gut kennt kann man das wirklich stundenlang bei einigen Bierchen spielen. Wärmste Empfehlung!

u/KingHavana · 1 pointr/boardgames

Yeah, currently $42 on amazon.

u/Squ4d13 · 1 pointr/boardgames

I have been enjoying Smash Up with my wife lately, but you could also go with something more like Pandemic instead. There is always Star Realms and Dominion too. I hear good things about Lord of Waterdeep with the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion for wife/husband play, but I have not played myself yet.

u/la_watson · 1 pointr/boardgames

Great List, we'll have to check some of them out.

Our absolute favorite <$20 travel games have been for a while:

  1. Star Realms
  2. Kamisado Pocket ( lists it as more expensive, but it's <$20 almost everywhere else)
  3. Hive Pocket
u/Ansem_T · 1 pointr/boardgames

Ok, a $20 budget is way tougher than I expected. (Most of my normal recommendations hit around $25).

[Hive Pocket] ( - $17.09 - Great chess-like strategy that can be played anywhere. The components feel great, and I really like the travel size. Plays equally well at a cafe, beach, patio, or coffee table.

Flip City - $16.06 - As a disclaimer, this is a very light deckbuilder. This game works better as a "simple zen game to decompress with" than a "game to ponder and analyze". However, it's pretty good for a light deckbuilder.

Valley of the Kings: Afterlife - $15.11 - Some people love this one, other people hate it. I fall in the former camp. This is a more unique "zen" deckbuilder that has you sacrificing your high-powered cards to convert them to victory points. One of the common complaints is that it is too easy. There are a few variants on BGG that address this.

Star Realms - $13.61 - Another "light-ish" deckbuilder. This one feels quite luck-based, but it has a quick set-up and tear down, and plays at a decent clip as well.

u/FlyingPotatoCubed · 1 pointr/RandomActsOfGaming

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.

Well, how serious are you? Cause if you're serious... here ya go

Otherwise, without knowing what you're into, it's a bit tough. Sushi Go! is an absolutely awesome card game - super easy to teach, pretty quick to play, but really fun for anyone. It's... "THE BOMB" at parties.

I would also extremely recommend Dominion, it's probably my favorite table-top game. However, I can't say it's for everyone.

I would absolutely love KTANE... wish I could buy it, but I've already spent way too much on games, and college is eating into my pockets. Thanks much! Sir Soaring Spud

u/Meat_tricycle · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/nexustab · 1 pointr/boardgames

Occasionally they have actual deals. Also for smaller orders it can make senses when you factor in shipping costs and delivery times.

For example you could get Risk Legacy or Galaxy Trucker right now for less than most other retailers or Sushi Go for a couple bucks more than Greatboardgames but free two day shipping w/ Prime.

u/costofanarchy · 1 pointr/lrcast

Sushi Go - Amazon US - $12

Sushi Go Party - Amazon - $20

As I mentioned above, I far prefer the party version and think it's worth the $8 extra; it's more than twice the "content" whereas the original is always the same. I'd only recommend the original over "Party" if a super portable game (about the size of two standard decks of cards) is useful to you.

u/Adamfirefist · 1 pointr/boardgames

Sushi Go! or Win, Lose, Banana.

(I've made my own WLB sets using 3 business cards, so it wins for "cheapest game ever".)

Also: vote #2 for Love Letter. I have the Kanai Factory edition, and I love it. (It's more expensive than the current default edition, but I think the art is nicer than the "cleavage edition".)

u/kanefeeman · 1 pointr/Boardgamedeals

The Amazon one is the regular sushi go, not sushi go party. link

u/fu_king · 1 pointr/Parenting

Quirkle has roots in Scrabble and Sequence. Is both easy and engaging for all ages, and has a surprising amount of depth and strategy.

Sushi Go is a card game where you collect points, but you pass your hand to the next player. Fun for all ages.

GTA3, and the effects of violences on kids, PART 5.5 WHOOPS off topic, back to QUANTIFYING

  • So , ignoring psychopaths, because clearly I do not understand this area, how about sociopaths and regular kiddies? Related to GTA 3. How do you quantify the effects of video games on kids, the decade old question, and how would you measure it in todays society? What would the test look like?

  • Its no different than how I mind-read people by using specific movement patterns in guild wars 1 random arenas to predict who the enemy team was targeting based on triangulating their movement positions and the direction they were facing in the arena to formulate a strategy. Then execute strategy, such as wipe off enemy A off the field first due to threat level. Whew. Okay, its like that. I learned it in gaming. Anyways, what you have to do is set up a well elaborate trap (in science, we call it a controlled environment / scientific method) to test the effects of kids decision in a time-space continuum result (e.g. there's tons of possibilities of choices that people can make and affects end result)

  • Next you identify those results. You must correlate everything in a casual cause/effect relationship though.

  • What would such a test look like in gaming?

    GTA3, and the effects of violences on kids, PART 5.6 Modelling the situation

  • As I learned in E-sports you want to have everything well defined. Like guild wars 1, you felt risk vs reward well. In guild wars 2 PvP , you weren't sure if the person was just lucky dodge rolling or you just plain suck, and identifying good vs meh players is nearly impossible. Same shit

  • The test is obviously always defined a binary situation, e.g. YES / NO answers like in surveys. the limitations here of those survey types is that they do not explore a whole lot, and do not really explore more grey areas. On that psychopathy test, some questions are a hard to answer because its a grey area. Some view it in black/white, not everyone views it the same way

  • What you need is a controlled gaming environment that is sandbox in appearance on an offset, but actually rigidly controlled such that datapoints can be analyzed. As I've played guild wars 1 random arenas, I will use this analogy example to best describe how an environment would be setup. I have no idea how I will explain it or what it is, going wing it

    also I just ate pizza and drank some milk. I havne't slept lately much, less than 5 hours everyday. For some reason rubbing one off helps me stay awake, I do not know why this is, something with bloodflow and dopamine. I barely rely on caffeine

  • EXPERIMENT SETUP analogy to guild wars

  • OKAY let's say you want to analyze mass murder behavioral tendencies in children growing up. First things first, you probably want to put a violent game in there, just to ellicit better reactions. Let's say, its guild 1 random arenas , except its bloody and gorey as hell snice that's the easiest way for me thinking it. Basically if you incapacite someone, it goes into "mortal combat FINISH HIM" bloody hell scenario

  • So, conducting a experimental study, following scientific method (question, hypothesis, experiment, analysis, results / comparison to other studies), specifically the EXPERIMENT part, you need to :

    • Blind study - kids being tested need to be told this is a fun game and not know its being tested at all, this introduces bias. Preferably double blind study, such that testers are automated so no human bias here either

    • Controlled variables - The game itself, Guild wars 1 random arenas

    • Independent variables- Variables that affect DEPENDENT variables - Basically you make the game bloody as hell now and assume that wanting that is a sign of mass murder behavior? (Its not, you can't assume this)

    • Dependent Variables - results that have been affected by dependent variables, this is shit we correlate to casual correlations (e.g. psychopathy from kids behavior in games) - how many times kid won and caused a bloody mess

  • Well fuck, this is harder to run an experiment. Hm. I'll have to revisit this another day, DOIT0 what you need is a more fixed Linear -type game, kind of like shitty final fantasy 13 instead of a giant clusterfuck open world that's harder to measure. Too tired, going to go to bed.

    GTA3, and the effects of violence on kids, PART 6 SUMMARY

  • So how does this all tie back to me, and Guild wars 1 and 2? Instead of violence and learning the lessons there, I learned business in the best aspect possible in a sandbox, and gained much wisdom from it But in the worst aspect possible with social retardation (Superiority complex issues) until university.

    Bartle Test, MMO Psychology

    twas writing this earlier, on COMP SCIENCE post, continuing from there, chronologically. Also, beta overwatch came out. And reminder on phone, 11AM to 12PM I set forth, overrides my UI on my homepage android. looked like this

    First 300 comment post was a giant 8 week sprint. This is the nextt 2 week sprint so far (I am on week 11). [QUOTE1] Writing this post is blending my two giant PMT tag clusters together, as it can't be done in one night. Takes time to meld process

    Fucking robocalls, someone in my network leaked my phone number. I think i know who it is, this is what fucking happens when you give your personal number out to people who can't for the life of them manage their own security send submission to I know this to be true, since i rarely ever give out my phone # and add people on facebook messenger instead, one of these new apps is killing my ram hard. I need a way to survey ram usage. Its probably that useless shit weather app

    Card game learning and social psychology


  • I was looking at that. Basically, there's a few demographics of gamers , in MMO. Bartle test,, achievers, killers, exploreres, socializers. What I do in MMO is the what I also do in card games: KILLERS psychology. I'm kind of an ass-hat when it comes to playing board games with people, I play to win. For instance, I played "A ticket to ride" and I basically wanted to fuck everyone over really hard. In monopoloy, its this I am that type of player. In all aspects of gaming

  • Its why I'm a huge troll online more than KenM at least in video games. I harass the shit out of people growing up, as in real life, when you get bullied you bully others, so i bullied people online a lot. Cyberbullying. Can't recall a lot of it I did though. *Controversally* also why I also figure out so much shit in gaming and applied to real life. KILLER+ACHIEVER basically. But I had my own sense of achievement not the games' predefined shitty ones. Also, why everyone also followed me on guild wars 2 as well daphoenix excala d/d elemntalist troll 50v1.

    need to restart PC Evernote changes it UI to be bigger,, another reason why I fucking don't use one software , because backup / don't feel like being a test guinea pig for new UI changes. Also, "NEW NOTE" is in blue color now. Its not a bad UI addition change though, kind of like it, feels more like onenotes REAL ESTATE area now (which is probably what they were going for). Evernote has made some really shitty UI changes in the past, this time its better now. It looks like sort of that outlook-ish feel to it, that "Material Design" that google is promoting, the feel is very similar. **Tags are now all indexed on the backend quicker too
    , as I have 1000 plus tags, sometimes it takes awhile to load them. I noticed the smooth integration time on tag assignments now . Evernote has just come up with an update on android OCR recognition as well was on my feedly. IDK how i never had google reader (defunct) or inoreader or feedly before. I've been missing out on the good shit.

You mean die-cut cardboard tokens? If so, they did do this for 4th edition D&D. You might be able to find it for a reasonable price on somewhere like eBay.

u/trilamb · 1 pointr/dndnext

If you can find the 4e Monster Vault it comes with a few hundred tokens for nearly every imaginable monster and hero. It's awesome. I prefer tokens anyway, I like my players to use their imaginations but still be able to interact on a grid.

u/CitizenKeen · 1 pointr/rpg

They kinda sell 'em on their own.

Monster Vault

u/CargoCulture · 1 pointr/rpg

You've purchased a setting supplement for Dungeons & Dragons, 4th Edition. 4th Edition (aka D&D4e, 4th, 4e) is very different to earlier editions and isn't particularly compatible with them.

There are many others in this thread recommending products and games that are not compatible with the product you've purchased, because they are different games (and thus the rules are different, in the way Scrabble and Monopoly are different). Be aware that The Shadowfell box is not compatible with non-4e games.

My suggestion is to start out with the Red Box that you've looked into already, and also the "Essentials" books -- Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms, Heroes of the Fallen Lands, and the Rules Compendium.

After that you'd want to look into the Monster Vault box.

Each of these (including the Monster Vault box) is about $20. The MV box is well worth the money.

Love Letter 1-4 Players tons of different versions available.

Exploding Kittens :1-5(base game) Very easy/amusing game.

FLUXX : (1-5)A game where each turn the basic rules change. lots of different versions.

Cards Against Humanity Great Raunchy Party Game, Any number of players..

Bohnanza Fun plant/crop production card game.

Citadels Fun Role based Card game. Each round you play as a different role. Kill people, build items, etc..

Dixit Great Party Game. Artistic

Most of the games above are quick and short.

As others have said Munchkin/7 Wonders are ton a fun, and take a decent amount of time to play.

My list of games to learn/play in the future:


Sushi Go

Forbidden Island

The Resistance

If you like the games above and want actual board games.
You should check out these that are popular with me and my friends:

Ticket To Ride 1-5 player building strategy board game.

Pandemic 4 player co-op save the world game

King of Tokyo Yahtzee with monsters. Roll to get money, attack other players, for victory points etc..

u/ramses0 · 1 pointr/boardgames

Dominion is Magic The Gathering for ex-Magic nerds. It is pretty good and has lots of expansion potential, but I would love to steer you towards Citadels instead.

~20 bucks shipped, it travels well, plays quick, and is suited towards playing multiple rounds with the same group of people.

Dominion IMHO doesn't travel as well (you have to separate all the cards, etc) and the interaction doesn't grab me quite as much as other board games. Lots of people love it though, but for me, the bang-for-buck would be better investing in Descent.

~$70 shipped:

probably ~$70 shipped:

one for ~$60 shipped:

...the reason descent is so expensive (including shipping) is it has a ton of crap in it:

...this is dominion:

...and this is citadels:

(might be relevant: )

and here is what you're getting into with descent:

...tougher to manage, but fun, and a ridiculous amount of fiddledy-bits.


u/sheisaeval · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hi! I like boardgames, traveling, crocheting, camping, and fun stuff like that!

this because I love board games!

u/elphinstone · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

So looking at your list i suggest you add Small World and the add ons and expations. small world is a fun board game where you try to controlle the world with certain races.

My other suggestion is something in the Munchkin universe, a piss take card based game mocking dng style games. this also has lots of add ons.

from mylist this maybe something else you like

u/crunkbash · 1 pointr/boardgames

Citadels can handle 8 and is has a nice dynamic where the roles change every turn, making for fun gameplay.

u/Sparkling_Beverage · 1 pointr/Netrunner

The core set is currently only $30 on Amazon (I've seen it as low as $26 on there). Super cheap considering the amount of play you'll get out of it. Pick it up.

u/Absona · 1 pointr/Netrunner

This discussion comes up a lot, and is very repetitive. I'm sorry for assuming that you were already familiar with the arguments on the other side of it. The short version:

  • Cards are cheap, but they're not free. None of FFG's LCG core sets have more than about 250 cards. Presumably there's a breakpoint there where they would actually have to raise the price if they put in more.
  • Presumably, FFG knows enough about pricing board games to have determined that raising the price would reduce sales. And, for that matter, that most people won't be too upset with $40 for the contents of one core set.
  • They've said several times that most core set buyers play it as a self-contained board game and never buy any expansions. From discussions here, we know that many of them never do any deckbuilding either. Such kitchen table players actually seem pretty happy with the core set as it is.
  • Less casual players don't usually start with three core sets. They start with one, buy some expansions, buy a second core, buy some more expansions, then buy a third core. So they don't seem to see one core as "a third of a game," and they don't actually start with an incredibly expensive 120 euro purchase. This may have been a problem when the game was new and there were no expansions, but it isn't now.
  • There are actually fewer full playsets and more one-ofs in the new core. Weirdly, this is actually an improvement for competitive players; if you do buy three core sets, the number of different cards it will give you full playsets of is substantially larger. I bought my third original core set basically just for Desparado. New players buying a third revised core will get a lot more value out of it.

    Incidentally, the MSRP is $40 US, which Google says is about 34 euro. Amazon France has the original core for EUR 35,50. So your costs are a bit high.
u/ageofinnosence · 1 pointr/Metal

It's not too expensive ($30 on amazon), but a really fun 2 player card game is Android: Netrunner. I've only had a chance to play it a couple of times but I've found it to be quite a lot of fun.

u/nexprime · 1 pointr/boardgames

Some Android: Netrunner boxes are discounted as well, with Free Shipping over $25 on all of these:

Core set - $36.38

Creation and Control - $24.62

Honor and Profit - $23.38

Also a couple of Data Packs for around $12~13:

A Study in Static, Mala Tempora, look around for more :)

u/btothej · 1 pointr/Netrunner

To buy the core set (or any other xpacs) just add it to your amazon wish list and check back. I picked a core set up 3 weeks ago off Amazon for $30. Right now, it shows 9 left at $49.99.

u/wimsy · 1 pointr/ucr

Netrunner it's really is.

u/Centipetastic · 1 pointr/boardgames

In 2013, US dollars were exchanged to canadian dollars almost 1 to 1 (0.94). Today, a canadian dollar is worth 70 cents. So Troyes went up from 35 dollars to 45?

It was also highly anticipated reprint in the middle of a boom of interest in boardgaming we are having right now, so the first wave was sold at a high price. Looking at a UK pricetracker you can see both how anticipated it was before the reprint and how the price right now is far from stable, being 35 pounds in february and 60 right now.
Android netrunner, if anything, seems to have gone down in prices for the UK at least, and the UK and american amazon usually track each other pretty well. Castles from Burgundy is stable for the last five years, Jamaica is falling.

It seems like it's either a canadian problem or maybe you were really good at picking prices when they were low back in 2013 and now you are comparing them to randomly chosen prices now?

u/esslax · 1 pointr/Parenting


It's a pattern recognition game (says ages 6+ but if you did it taking turns finding patterns instead of racing to find the patterns a 5yo should be able to have some fun still. Basically you look for trains (shape, colour, shading) and try to find sets that have all three traits in common or all three traits different.

u/asaharyev · 1 pointr/matheducation

I think it can be reinforced this way, but I feel that a lot of the asking of "why?" can be important for students, albeit annoying at times for teachers, and that may not come up in the same way with games(Though it also might).

Beyond this, there are students who do desire to continue with mathematics after the basic high school curriculum, and many of them do not really know that until after they complete some higher-level math courses like Calculus. So the math is still important.

That being said, I love bringing games in to the classroom. Though I typically stay away from anything advertised as a "math game." Instead, I bring games that I like, but in which mathematical concepts can be found. Some examples I've used in class include: Set, Mao, The Great Dalmuti, Settlers of Catan, and Formula D.

u/a_statistician · 1 pointr/Parenting

This is a card game, but... Set is amazing, fun for adults (it makes regular appearances at our all-adult game night), and is great for teaching kids logic and math skills.

u/jimmy_rigger · 1 pointr/learnmath

Your kid won't understand the word "satisfy", but you'd want him to understand "set operations" like "disjunction".

You want to teach sets to 5 year olds? Teach them to play this game.

u/Amator · 1 pointr/boardgames

Here's what I'd do if I had to rebuild a collection from scratch for $1k trying to have a wide variety of play styles:

Battlestar Galactica $39.97
Carcassonne $30.02
Carcassonne Inns & Cathedrals$15.71
Dixit $22.65
Dominion Big Box $69.18 Prosperity is one of the best expansions; Alchemy is not, but you're pretty much getting it for free in this set.
Eclipse $61.49 It wouldn't be a board game library without a 4X game, and I think Eclipse is the best currently.
Eldritch Horror $40.47 - I love Arkham Horror, but Eldritch streamlines a lot of the fiddly rules of the original.

u/jbarber2 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Here is a ridiculously fun card game that I had the chance to play once at a game store. I really enjoyed it, and maybe you would too!

u/Kurtomatic · 1 pointr/boardgames

Guillotine. Played this game hundreds of times over the last 15-20 years or so, well worth the ten bucks I spent on it. Easy to learn, quick game, good at various levels of drunkeness, just enough strategy to make the hard core gamers happy while simple enough for even drunk idiots to play.

u/southern_boy · 1 pointr/boardgames

Cosmic Wimpout, Guillotine and Battle Line are all personal favorite 'small' travel games.

u/radler470 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Woo! Fluxx is one of my favorites! You should check out Guillotine.

u/Bubba310 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/iamcptnawesome · 1 pointr/AskReddit


Its easy to learn how to play, a lot of fun, and a great game to play if you don't have much time.

Also, it comes with a cut out of a Guillotine, which is cool.. right?

u/arkofcovenant · 1 pointr/Gifts

Wow, she sounds like my kind of girl. My GF really likes model planes. Something like this is a good starter model if she has never tried model planes before. It's not a very good way to introduce someone to the hobby, but down the road if she's interested and more experienced, she can get FPV systems, which put a camera in the cockpit of your model plane and fly it from a first person perspective. Another good idea in the realm of flying might be a basic simulator set-up for a computer like this (this one is just an example, I'm not well versed enough in these to give a specific model recommendation, so you should do some research on your own to find the best one).

When it comes to board games, there's so, so many great ones. Its hard to really recommend one because there are so many vastly different games that are ideal for different people. One that everyone seems to like is Ticket to Ride. My GF happens to like Pandemic. One of my favorites is Dominion. Head over to /r/boardgames (maybe with a little more info about what she likes?) and you'll get a ton of great recommendations if you are interested in going the board game route.

u/asdofikjasdlfkjqwpea · 1 pointr/AskReddit

If you're looking for a cheaper way to get that "build your own deck, play powerful card combos" fix, try the game Dominion. Everything is self-contained for a game with up to 4 players, and there are expansions available, but you aren't required to buy them to stay competitive, only if you want more variety.

u/riseupagainst · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would really like to play a game that you can play with only two players. Right now all of the games my husband and I have are for 3 or more players, but sometimes it is hard to find a third player, and we would like to have some games to play ourselves. I played Dominion once with a few people but I would like to get it myself so I can try playing with just two people. I also would like to try Forbidden Island since you can play that with two players as well. An interesting thing is that I decided to get a PhD at 30, so I am older than most people in my grad program. Elephant Barber!

u/xerexerex · 1 pointr/cats

Sounds cool

Pretty good price (plus free shipping) and stellar reviews. Added to my wishlist for future consideration.

u/MacabreChaos · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I commented on here earlier, but the thing I recommended was already listed. xD Sooooo Imma suggest some board games!

If you like deck-building games, Dominion is a classic. I didn't think I would like it, but the premise is pretty simple, so it's easy to pick up.

I like the Chinese version of Bang which is called SanGuoSha. It's not always in-stock on Amazon in English; I think right now all the ones offered are in Chinese. I think the characters and items are a little more complex than Bang's, which is why I prefer this version, but Bang is good as well. :)

I also like Betrayal at House on the Hill. It usually makes for a unique experience each time. You explore a haunted house with the other plays, picking up different omens along the way until you trigger "the haunt." The thing is, the haunt varies depending on the character who triggered it, the omen that it was triggered with, and the room it happened in! So there's tons of different haunts making for awesome replayability!

Also, I gotta throw in a recommendation for Lifeboat. Lifeboat is pretty entertaining. The premise is that you're on a lifeboat with the other players. You're trying to get to shore. The person with the most points wins. Each person "loves" and "hates" another player. If the person you love survives, you get bonus points. So you want the person you love to survive and the person you hate to die, but you also don't wanted your loved one to get more points than you otherwise they would win...

Each character has different skills/strength/HP. You get to pick an item card (point items. weapons, health) every round in order. First person gets first pick, but the last person controls the boat. You can choose to switch places with someone, trade with someone or mug someone, or row the boat (you draw 2 navigation cards and pick 1 to add to the stack). If you fight someone (e.g. you want an item but they won't give it to you), all players can join on either side, and the total side with the most strength wins while the other side loses health.

At the end of a round of turns, the navigator picks from the navigation cards drawn from rowers. Those cards dictate who goes overboard and loses health. If a navigation card has a seagull on it, you get closer to shore. 4 seagulls = game over.

It's a super fun game, but be careful who you play with... Some people get REALLY angry or upset when shit goes down. Some people really hate that there's no enforcability... Like if you say you'll trade someone an item but don't go through with your end like a douche, you can do that. Buuuuut I guess if you make too many enemies, people won't take your sides on fights and could work together to kill you first.

Hope this helps!

u/InnerOrbiter · 1 pointr/hearthstone

What price range are you talking about? Here's some gifts divided into categories and price:

Lord of the Rings (Does she like LotR?):

  • LotR Lego - You said she was smart and likes things to be clean, so I'm going to assume she likes decorating. And what's better than decorating your house with things you have built yourself? These sets range from $29.99 to $199.99. Check out the rest out!
  • The One Ring - Ranges from $59.95 to $99.99. If she likes it, she will wear it multiple times a week.
  • Arwen's Evenstar Pendent - Ranges from $72.99 to $149.00 (I like the higher end products myself). Subtle, fancy, and looks nice when going out.
  • Sting - For the sword and the scabbard it's going to almost always cost around 174.98. Hang it on the wall, use it for home protection, it's shiny, ect.


  • Munchkin - Very casual party game with lots of expansions. Listed at $24.95 on their website, but it usually will sell for ~$20 at your local Barnes & Nobel or Target.
  • DOMINION - I bolded this suggestion because it is a card game and this is the Hearthstone sub-reddit. A brilliant German Board Game which invented the genre of deck-building games. Players draw 5 cards from their deck every turn, using the cards they draw to buy more cards for their deck. When they have no new cards to draw, they shuffle their discard pile back into the deck and keep on playing. If you enjoy the deck building element of any card game, this game is immensely fun. The base set is $30.30 on Amazon right now.
  • Settlers of Catan - Want to get into more hardcore board gaming? This is the gateway game to start. Being another German Board Game, it focuses on non-combat economic decision making. That doesn't mean you cant screw eachother over, as in any good board game. The site asks for $42.00. Again, this game has a lot of expansions. I like the Star Trek Version which goes for $49.99.


  • Espresso Machine - Does she like Coffee? For ~$79.00 you could cut out Starbucks entirely from your life. If you go to Starbucks every other day, this will pay for itself in just over a month.
  • Record Player - Nothing beats some nice Analog sound, it's so much more real to me. These vary all over in price depending on what you want out of it. Here's a really nice one for $150.98. Just go to BestBuy/Walmart to find one more precisely for what you're looking for. Here's one of my favorite records of all time. Here's a really sexy big band one.
  • Wacom Tablet - Is she artistic at all? One of these for ~$229.99 and she'll be able to draw beautiful things on her computer.
  • A good memory - Take her on a nice date. Inform her she will need to dress well and rent a tux. Go out to an expensive local restaurant and split a meal. Both walk in overdressed and own it. Watch the sun set. Go home, pour her some wine and give her a massage. Bathe each other. Watch her favorite show all night. Go out for breakfast and watch the sun rise. Something different; something exciting! Live life in a routine? CHANGE THE ROUTINE. She will not forget it and this is the best gift you can give her.

    These are my main suggestions, for everything else there's Think Geek. But really, browse this site.

u/applesauceisevil · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You should buy Dominion. It's a really fun card game (it can also be played online if you wanna check it out. Here's the online version. Yes, it's over 25$ but it's worth it.

I'd like this [popsicle mold] ( It's under 25, so hopefully this all balances.

If you don't have prime, that changes some things though and I'll have to edit this.

u/humanehero · 1 pointr/PAX

Well, as far as silly card games go, I'm partial to We Didn't Playtest This At All and Fluxx which support 2-15 and 2-6 players respectively. Both games can be really quick or take a while, but I've always found them to be great fun, and they both have a bunch of expansions, if you find that you like them.

Of course, if you want to delve into the world of board games, I'm a big fan of co-op games like Castle Panic and Pandemic. In Castle Panic, you work together to defend a castle from oncoming hordes of monsters and in Pandemic you need to cooperate to keep viral epidemics under control while finding a cure. Castle Panic is great fun, a simple game, and easy to get into, but I've never found it an easy game to win which keeps it fresh. Pandemic is a bit more complicated, requiring a lot of strategy and cooperation, and it can be brutally difficult at times, but that just makes winning all the more satisfying.

If you and your friends like a little friendly competition, I'd suggest something like 7 Wonders or Bang!, which was the game that got me started down this path. In 7 Wonders, you draft cards to build a civilization and compete for victory points. It may seem a little complicated at first, but once you play a game or two, it really starts to shine. In Bang!, you enter the wild west where one of you is the sheriff, and the rest of the players are deputies, outlaws, or renegades, each with their own win condition. The thing with this one is that everyone's role except the sheriff's is hidden. You can play Bang! with as little as 3 players, but it really only gets good if you have 5 or more.

If you want to do some research on your own, check out /r/boardgames or which has a pretty comprehensive database of all the board games out there with ratings and reviews.

I really need this! I know it's over $20. But funny story, so I did a birthday exchange and I got the expansions but not the actual game. Kind of really need the game to use the expansions.

u/TBoneTheOriginal · 1 pointr/cardsagainsthumanity

But... they aren't sold out.



u/Niltaic3 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm still a kid at heart!

I had first played WoW and then moved on to Aion when all of my friends moved on.. In my school I was probably one of the only people who played this (grindy-as-hell) game as most of my friends went back to WoW. So, whenever I would talk about it they wouldn't really listen to me.

But I also had ASL class (they offered sign language as a foreign language at my school), and one guy in there was super sweet and also enjoyed playing games. He would always listen to my silly ramblings about the dungeon I did the night before or whatever it was that I had to talk about.

He not only listened to my silly nonsense about my games, but also shared his own personal experiences about the games he was playing.

The summer after he graduated he asked to come over to my house to bum off of my high-speed internet. I told him that I was going to be busy playing Aion but sure. So he comes over and plays WoW next to me and watches me do my boss battles and listens to me talk to my internet-friends on ventrilo and even talks back at them.

Before I knew it, he was coming over every day to play WoW and watch me play Aion and now we've moved in together and been together for almost 4 years.

Sorry my story wasn't exactly game-related but it does have the happiest ending I've played yet! (Also, he doesn't have to steal my internet anymore)

Cards Against Humanity

u/unthinkableduck · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Only exercise thing I have left is a Zumba game but if this counts, I really need a scale. I don't have one at all and I just got a lot of things recently that I need to start a healthier life. :) I think this card game looks like a ton of fun. Thanks for the contest! :)

u/4th_time_around · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This may sound odd, but one thing I love about myself is the fact that I find humor essential in life. I love to laugh and make people laugh. I appreciate sarcasm and I'm not afraid to get down and dirty in the interest of a non-stop giggle fit.

This Game pretty much sums it up.

Thanks for the contest!

u/KaNikki · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thanks for the contest! I don't actually need it, but I figured I'd participate anyway.

u/I_teach_logic · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think the base set has my favorite. It is "the Virginia Tech Massacre" because it ALWAYS works. Also, because I'm a terrible person. But really, it always fits.

In the online game, It's always fun to fill in the white card with someone's username... but if I had a real life one, It would be "the eyes of white people" -- because one of my mixed race students was talking about how he liked the eyes of white people because they got so many colors and his whole family just gets brown lol... and I had never thought about it, so the phrase makes me laugh, and I think it would be funny in a lot of situations.

u/Yokuo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The base set is the one that contains my favorite (I believe)

I love the card "Being a motherfucking sorcerer". It's so random and hilarious. What's not to like. It basically needs to be an instant-win card.

I don't have a blank white card available to write on, but if I did, it would say "Cunt Blaster 7000", only because that's literally the first thing I thought of. That might be disqualify-y, but I don't have so many options >.>

If I win, I want it hand delivered. Or mail it. Whichever.

Looking through your wishlists - did we just become best friends?

I'd be into this. I love this game, but I think it'd be easier to play if I had the physical game so I could play with real life friends.

This! I love me some drums, and I need more effects cymbals.

Also, treat yourself to Dark Souls. I've spent 253 hours in that game according to Steam, and I regret none of that time.


u/ikester519 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hehe, I'll go with Cards Against Humanity because its a HILARIOUS party game. I have literally ROFL-ed at some people's cards.

From my wishlist, this shemagh so I don't hurt my neck when playing airsoft.


u/Concision · 1 pointr/boardgames

Apples to Apples is really my girlfriend's party game. When I'm with the boys we like to play Bohnanza or Cards Against Humanity.

I don't have anything with an even remotely dungeon theme because my primary playing partner is my girlfriend who is totally not into that kind of stuff. Maybe if I had the audience, as you say, I'd branch out there some more.

u/carpe-tenebris · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

girlsplaywow is a jerk

Err... most of things on my list are under $100... like waaaay under. so I guess if I win just get me this.

Also good luck with your marathon!

u/nayohmerae · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Adults are just outdated children. I know I am.

Well the item on my wishlists that would make me the happiest is really expensive and not for me, I really want the Zelda themed 3DS XL off of my Gifts for friends & family list for my best friend who lost his, but that's just silly to request that. So instead I will just go for the next thing that will make me happy: A set of Cards against humanity so I have something fun to do while I spend time with him and other friends :)

Thanks for the contest!

u/OfMonstersAndSuicide · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Batman Suit.

I hear this is rad so why not get it for yourself? Just think of all the rad times you could have. DO IT. NOW.

And for me, This super rad Super Nintendo game would be super rad. (I'm assuming you can gift used items? There should be a used copy to ship right at or under $30) I recently made the decision to collect old games and my main interest is the SNES and kind of the NES so this game would be a super rad addition to my collection. I've played it before and its frustrating as all hell compared to the newer ones we're used to, but I love it and need it.

u/Whitytighty1 · 1 pointr/funny
u/slick_bucks · 1 pointr/vegas

Looks like you got your answer but you can also get it on amazon, along with the expansion packs.

here's the link to it for lazy ppl

u/Smile_for_the_Camera · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This coffee press. Not for me, but for my husband. While he refuses to admit it, he got a little jealous of the past few gifts I received, so I wanted to get him something just for him, that I know he wants. :)

Or, Cards Against Humanity, because I've never played it before, and Reddit talks about how great it is all the time and I want to be in the loop. It looks hilarious and I know my husband and his friends will enjoy it.

Elephant Barber.

I'm kind of fairly new here too, so let's be friends. :) I don't really know how much there is to say about myself. I love board games and video games, and old cheesy movies! How about you?

u/modestmouth · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Riddle the First: Wine
I’ve heard tell that wine can be paired with fruit and cheese. Because I’m a classy lady I would have no trouble substituting traditional cheese for some White Cheddar Cheez-its:

Riddle the Second: Broom
Do you know how dusty White Cheddar Cheez-its are? Of course I need a broom to keep my side of the dormitory clean!

Riddle the Third: Hat
What “classy lady” wouldn’t want a miniature top hat headband fascinator? I just hope its not too distracting to the other students…

Riddle the Fourth: Book
I chose a muggle book of fiction I’ve wanted to read for a while now, The Windup Girl, by Paolo Bacigalupi. I’ll give you a prize if you can say “Bacigalupi” three times fast…

Riddle the Fifth: Trunk
Cards Against Humanity would be stowed away in my trunk. What better way to learn about all my new housemates after sorting is complete?

For Bonus Points: Cape
I need variety! Why wear the same boring old cape day after day if I don’t have to? With Dancing Colors Scarves I could have a different colored cape, or a cape of many colors, anytime I pleased!

u/mrsjksnowwis · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I will gladly be your thunder buddy.

I brought CAH because we need it.

u/effervescenthoopla · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These are both just a bit over your budget, but I guarantee both would be great. If he's competitive and likes zombies and has a dark sense of humor, I would definitely say to go for either Zombie Monopoly (which he can play with the family, could be fun!) or the little bit more cliche but tried and true Cards Against Humanity. It's super NSFW, but as a young adult, I guarantee it will get hours upon hours of use from him.

u/xXHardKoreXx · 1 pointr/Charlotte

Cards Against Humanity

Best online place in case you can't find locally.

u/elephantsinging · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/Tetchy · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. [How the what in where?!?!?!?]

  2. I'm sort of embarrassed this is on my wishlist...NSFW Super Sonico figure! >.< It's just so cute. But also...other things.

  3. Cards Against Humanity is hilarious! And very NSFW. Don't bring it to the work meeting. It's great for parties and friends.

  4. I like it when the OP chooses, so there's nothing I really want to specify for you! But, for your convenience, here's a BD&A amiibo Question Block Case that I want!

  5. Here's a penis cake pan. Enjoy.

  6. Sixth? SIXTH? THE DEVIL!

    Is it okay that my NSFW wishlist is marked like this: 'Figures! (some nsfw)' ?

u/mrbleuskye · 1 pointr/LosAngeles

Well, you can always go to their website and download the PDF then take it to Staples (or some place similar) and have them print it onto cards. All the directions are there.

Or you can buy on Amazon

They do Same-day delivery if you order early enough.

u/thunderrrchicken · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm sorry for your loss, Candroth. I'm sure they made many people's lives better, so I hope that thought may make it a little easier.

This is the thing that I need the most. I'm an amateur artist trying desperately to further her skills on a very limited income.

This because everyone needs a laugh and we spend most of our time stressed out.

As for needing, though- anything off of this list or this list is in that category.

Sort my priorities... I've tried doing that so many times. I write lists about writing lists. I organise everything to death. (As is evidenced by my half-billion Amazon lists.)

u/macbezz · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You should get yourself Smash Up I've been playing it lately with my wife(who doesn't really even like board games) and we both love it.
And I'd love Cards Against Humanity since I've never played it and we've been looking for a party type game.

Just looking at your board game wishlist makes me want to ask if you're a Tabletop watcher as it seems you have several of the games that they've played on there.

u/punken99 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This for both of us. It is one of the best "board games" I have ever played but sadly i do not own it yet.

EDIT: Figured out how to put my wishlist next to my username!

u/ubergemut · 1 pointr/StPetersburgFL

I haven't dug through the bag they bring yet because I was mostly interested in meeting people and trying new things, but I saw people playing the following.

Boss Monster

Love Letter

Cards Against Humanity

DC Deck Building Game


Kittens in a Blender

and Samurai Spirit

There is also an N64 with Goldeneye and Smash and an Emulation Station with many nes / snes / ps / gb / sega games.

u/theQUEENofAWESOME · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

you're a big girl now ! THIS is absolutely necessary! :P You're gunna want to invite people over :)

Oh, and feel free to stalk my wish list ;) I have fun adding things to it. I promise I am not as creepy in person as the list may or may not suggest...

u/czere · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thanks for such a fun contest! I have always loved August. One reason little brother is named August! Here is an adorable picture of us from a few years ago. So I love August and always will! Everyone always asks if he was born in August but he was not...but still, it's a great name. I definitely think that name will continue to make its way through our family.

I also just love the month because I'm such a summer girl. From 9 until 16, I spent at least one week every August at my favorite place...summer camp! And then 17-22 I spent the entire summer there. It's just the best time of the camp season! The summer has settled in, you've got your tan, you're comfortable with the job because you've been doing it for a little while, you've made great friends, the kids love being there. It's just great! I miss working there so bad but I always make sure to go back in and visit. OOooooh camp in august, you are the best.

And my brother worked there with me. SO AUGUST IN AUGUST at camp...even better!!

31 days for Augustus (growing up, my brother was known as Gus. he always used to get asked if he was Augustus or Gustav. Just August!)

I'd love this game!! Everyone loves CAH It's on my $20-$30 WL.

u/squishybuggles · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Having a nice, quiet night in would be a real treat for us!

We'd play some board games and make popcorn

Me time

u/Hypersomniac13 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I can't say that I have a favorite month, or really care much about what month it is. There are certain times within months that I like and that I dislike, but that doesn't have much to do with the month itself.

August cons:
STILL ROAD CONSTRUCTION SEASON! I hate all the road construction that goes on.
Way too warm unless it is night time or you are on the water.

August pros:
Great cigar smoking weather at night.
Good golf weather when it is cloudy.

31 days for Augustus

Cards Against Humanity!

I'm an RA, and I would love to play this with my residents! It's just offensive enough that it would make the girls laugh their asses off :) It's just a little pricey for me at the moment.

Thanks for the contest!!

u/lexiwho · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This really depends on your sense of humor and the people you hang out with. With that said, my friends and I have had a great many laughs over this card game:

u/jspires · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

don't go talking too loud you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones

And I think you should do the two $10 gifts! To be nice & to give better gifts.

$25 item

$10 item

$5 item

u/qqpugla · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

don't go talking too loud you'll cause a landslide, Mr. Jones.

  1. $25

  2. $10

  3. $5

    My vote is for four people for $5 because even the smallest gift can brighten your day, and it's better for four people's days to be brightened!
u/MsMina · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This seemed the most fitting seeing how I'm currently playing and trying to be as offensive as possible. =]

OMG, Cards Against Humanity would totally make me go "OMG YAAAYYYYYYY!!!!" and then I'd have to immediately plan a game night with friends so I could indulge my evil side!

Yay! for you getting a new address!! I need a new address too, because my address is Blank Street Rear and the delivery people sometimes ignore the Rear part and give my stuff to the people in the house in front of mine.

Cards Against Humanity! and a Fire Starter

With these two items, I can have something to do while im out camping and when I have no source of wood/stuff to burn for a fire, I can use the firestarter with the cards against humanity :D Schmad on my add on

u/Sageypie · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'd go with Cards Against Humanity and More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Why those, you may ask? Because I plan on being a bad father when it comes time to start teaching my son to read. Well, I mean, I'll take out some of the really bad cards in Cards Against, but other than that, yeah, teaching him to read in awful ways. The way his daddy learned. Bad parenting ideas FTW.

Alright, I'll probably just play the game with his mom while I read him the stories from the book, but still, when he's older, definitely playing that game with him and making him uncomfortable the entire time.

Schmad on my add on

u/SpikeKintarin · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would totally say "OMG YAAAAAAAY!!!!" if I were to receive either Cards Against Humanity or this great Dremel Flex Shaft attachment for my Dremel, which would help me with my etsy orders! :D

Thank you for the contest! Yay! :D Keep on being awesome!

I feel like we have a lot of similar items on our wish lists, but the only item we both have is CAH.

I'm pretty sure you would like the following things from my WL:

  1. Dino earrings
  2. Living stone plant
  3. Dino fossil cookie cutters!
u/b1ackcat · 1 pointr/Android

Cards Against Humanity.

You're welcome.

For those that don't know what it is, think Apples to Apples, but replace all the nice boring cards with really fucked up shit. Like "Two Midgets Shitting in a bucket".

Hands down the best 25 dollars I've ever spent. The two expansion packs are also worth way more than the $10 they cost.

u/purebredginger · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Operation Raccoon City


Cards Against Humanity!

u/call_me_cthulhu_ · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think hes gonna take you to Busch Gardens. But before he does I think he's going to serve you a very NSFW breakfast in bed. After that a pumpkin carving contest judged by no other than SquishMonster himself. When you arrive at Busch Gardens the entire staff will perform their own version of the "thriller dance". After a fun filled day riding coasters your husband will shower you with gifts and give you a painting he had commissioned in your honor. It will feature you in kate winslets pose from titanic.

Haha I think I got a little out of control with that but seriously, congrats. And even though I said it before I'll say it again squishmonster because I love the name so much.

u/breezy727 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Card game!

Here's some of my notes I'm using at the moment for writing an awful final paper!

u/Tintinabulation · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite from your list because I just discovered this game and it tickles just the right part of my brain.

My favorite from mine because omg the colors! I've been dying to try this yarn out. Noro does such creative stuff.

We look like we could share tastes, but my list is heavily yarn/book oriented. Anyone who likes Cards Against Humanity is awesome in my book!

u/fireflygirlie · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Heellloooo Squeakachoo! Good for you for getting rid of old stuff! I've learned how to de-clutter my life significantly and it's GREAT! I'm a forever-child that likes being outside, listening to oldies, and being a nerd. I like Arrested Development, Jericho, Firefly, Breaking Bad, Mad Men & Jeopardy. I think the Cards Against Humanity would represent me well, because I love my friends and family, love playing games, and have a good sense of humor.

I absolutely adore Cards Against Humanity it caters to my somewhat sick sense of humor and I have many friends who I know would love to play it with me.

Ever since I started okay CAH here, I can no longer play apples to apples. I always find myself thinking of a CAH card that would be so much better lol

Thanks for the contest.

Sadly there's been none in Wales.

How about some Cards Against Humanity for inappropriate flight entertainment & giggles :)

u/Shad0wembrace · 1 pointr/rva

So I missed this on the day and I've been waiting for it so I'm just gonna post now.

I have a box of unopened Cards Against Humanity from Amazon []. I ordered a package deal thing and didn't know it came with the original box as well, so ordered the original box and I'm far too lazy to send it back.

Original price: $25.00, willing to sell to a redditor for $15.00.

Can bring it to the Busch Gardens meetup, or Pizza Palooza, or one of the Trivia nights.

The group only sells through Amazon, so the price there is $25 (except they're out of stock). I imagine that other companies buy copies and re-sell them for as much as they like.

u/flambocious · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Cards Against Humanity and this. I'm envisioning a game of CAH so horrid it brings about the Apocalypse, in which case my add-on item might come in handy. Thanks for doing this contest, and of course, Schmad on my add on.

u/Oneiropticon · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

YAY, a bigger contest! I would love to finally get a copy of CAH, and it's free shipping with prime!

u/ChuckEJesus · 1 pointr/BuffaloWizards
u/BranWafr · 1 pointr/boardgames

As I said, already, for the top 10 games you can probably get a good deal online. But, stray from that and the deals aren't as big. My gaming habits tend more towards casual, family and friend style games, which may also make a difference.

Forbidden Island - 16%

Gloom expansion - 15%

Say Anything - 12%

Munchkin - 16%

Tsuro - 19%

MLP Trading Card Game - 9%

Bananagrams - 21%

Scrabble - 15%

Apples to Apples - 0%

Oz Fluxx - 23%

Those are the last 10 games I bought. The biggest percentage is 23%, and that was only a $3 difference. The biggest dollar difference was $5. For differences that small, i'll buy local. It supports the local guy and I get it now, not several days to a week from now.

Also, the reason I don't agree with the original statement is because (as is shown in my personal examples) the online prices aren't that much less for the games I have purchased lately. And, I have never called in to any of the local stores and found that they do not have something in stock that isn't also out of stock online. So, I also disagree with the assertion that they cannot compete for item availability.

Again, I use the bookstore analogy. Sure, I may be able to get a better deal for a book online, but it's not going to stop my from heading to Powells. And, except for the most obscure of titles, i'll probably find a copy of it at Powells.

u/alsorobots · 1 pointr/tabletop

You could go all in with an awesome collection of Cards Against Humanity!

It requires you to have a pretty twisted sense of humor but it's a ton of fun with friends.

You could check out Firefly the Game.

If you're a fan of the space opera, this is one of the more enjoyable games I've ever played.

If you really don't mind blowing 300 bucks, there's the Star Wars X-Wing miniatures game!

You take control of a spacecraft in the Star Wars universe and each game is like an episode of a Star Wars tv show, with a clear goal and twists and turns along the way as you try and accomplish that goal. The miniatures can get pricey but 300 bucks would get you started on a pretty sweet collection if you buy the smaller ships.

300 bucks would also get you started with the world's greatest trading card game: Magic the Gathering!

This classic card game has been around for over 20 years, features thousands upon thousands of cards to select from and, just like chess, takes 10 minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. For 300 bucks you could both have a gaming mat, plenty of dice, a kick-ass card collection and more than enough to start building multiple decks. Heck, you can just go and buy pre-made decks from a plethora of websites. Check out Youtube for suggestions on what formats you might enjoy, but kitchen table Magic the Gathering is VERY satisfying for two people.

Of course, if you really want an epic adventure, you could check out the bigger, meaner, older cousin of Magic the Gathering, and maybe the most infamous table top game in the world: Dungeons and Dragons!

A little more effort than most, but hugely rewarding if you have a colorful imagination and don't mind some simple math (most games requre SOME math, just look at Monopoly), and you have decades of books to explore, and many are available for pretty cheap from both used book stores and your local library (hopefully). This is a hobby that lasts for the rest of your life.

Like Dungeons and Dragons but want a more easy and accessible game to start out? How about [Muchkin!] (

We're talking dungeons...dragons...knights in shining armor and a LOT of fun. It's a good start for tabletop gaming.

Of course, Tabletop gaming is pretty extensive when it comes to choices. Here are a few more to check out:

The Game of the Century: Settlers of Catan

Spooky fun with Arkham Horror!

Big Adventures: Small Heroes... Mice and Mystics!

Survive the Zombie Apocalypse with Dead of Winter!

Of course, like Levar Burton says, you don't have to take my word for it. Here is the awesome Wil Wheaton's Youtube series, Tabletop! He plays with his friends so you don't have to! This series is amazing at helping to decide which tabletop game might be best for your playing needs.

Need a little help deciding if Magic the Gathering is right for you? How about Spellslingers on Youtube! Game Guru Day[9] plays Magic with his friends. Not only is this a super easy way to learn the game, it's a lot of fun to watch.

Need a little help understanding Dungeons and Dragons? Give Critical Role on Youtube a listen!

Luckily, you happened upon a time where tabletop games are going stronger than ever so...good luck!

Do you have access to Amazon? here

u/Nobunga37 · 1 pointr/Munchkin

Either the Foil Edition or the Deluxe Edition that comes with a board.

u/DimiCroWri · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I see you like board games and table top. I love this game! You build the board as you play and there are like 60 different scenarios. My friends have it, but it'd be cool to have my own copy. You should also check out Munchkin Deluxe and some of those extensions.

You team up to try and cure/eradicate viruses from spreading around the world. It's pretty challenging! The stupid virus gets us almost ever time!

And this classic

u/summerofsin · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Since you're into card games, I'm going to suggest Munchkin Deluxe!

u/biddoodles · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You NEED Munchkin!

It's a table-top game for up to 8 people AND it's roleplaying. Everything changes, you can team up with friends to help take another friend down or help out. It's great. Look into it!

new tires. unknown.

Thanks for the contest! Enjoy the origin games you got and the new game you end up getting through this contest!

31 days for Augustus

I like August because it is the end of summer which means fall is almost here & the weather is finally cooling down. Also even though it has been a while since I have been in school I take full advantage of all the back to school sales. Especially at Target, the best time to stock up on stuff I need around the house. Also is there anything better than baseball in August? I think not.

Munchkin would be nice or speaking of August baseball This baseball book.

Thanks for the contest!

Munchkin card game. Very fun for RPG fans... best played with a group of friends. It's a card game (not like Magic the Gathering, it's more for a casual group of friends), but it's kinda hard to describe, so I'll borrow their description from the Munchkin site:

Munchkin captures the essence of the dungeon experience . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .

Fast and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.

Here are some more game recommendations. If you search for them on youtube you will find some TableTop videos that show how they are all played before you buy.

Small World
Munchkin Deluxe

Magic The Gathering can get expensive but I bet if you ask around some one already plays and could help you out.

u/tr1ppn · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I spy with my little eye. (And your contest is better than any other currently running I SPY related things, /u/186394.)

I am positive I missed something.

Edit: Forgot to link an item

u/thr33littlebirds · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Welcome welcome! How exciting that you are able to join in the fun after lurking in wait! We are happy to have you here.

What do you do for fun? Favorite board game or video game?

This would be what I wanted. Because you can never have too much C.A.H.

u/Giraffe-o-matic · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I taught myself to ride a unicycle!

I got it for Christmas and I've been practicing just about every day since. I actually only got the hang of it about a week ago, and I only got about 12 feet from where I started, but it's progress nonetheless!

Expansion 1
or Expansion 2 (you decide which one (: )

u/RainbowSpectrum · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love this It's always up to us to bring the games to our parties.

Christmas in April is great. My family normally celebrates all the holidays in July. We exchange presents, shoot of fireworks, dress up in our halloween costumes and hunt easter eggs. While pigging out on chocolates and deep fried turkey and drinking green beer.

u/saint_gutfree · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Amusing - Because I have yet to find a more amusing game to play with my friends.

u/Sieberella · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh no! :( I'm so sorry to hear that hugs my inbox is always open if you need! My favorite thing about my mom is how crafty she is and she's taught me how to cross stitch and sew and we frequently do it together. I've gotten her addicted to Cards Against Humanity and the second expansion would be cool.

Again let me know if you need anyone to talk to!

u/bruce656 · 1 pointr/boardgames

Here's the link to the two expansions:



That being said, does anyone have a suggestion as to what kind of box to get that can keep all the cards together?

u/VKilledTInternet · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/DarkLancelot · 1 pointr/boardgames
u/Damn_Dog_Inappropes · 1 pointr/boardgames

I would say just for replayability, Sentinels of the Multiverse. The basic set comes with so many variations between environments, villains, and heroes, that it basically has infinite replayability.

It's $30 at Amazon.

u/jigglebilly · 1 pointr/boardgames
u/Orphanleni · 1 pointr/boardgames

amazon I am acquainted with the guys at greater than games and I know for a fact that they wouldn't mind you purchasing from a major retailer.

u/meichan101 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

If you guys also like board games, this is a really fun cooperative deck building game where you’re the super heroes fighting together to take down the bad guy.

u/chirisu · 0 pointsr/Boardgamedeals

Non broken link for the lazy:

u/MerryChoppins · 0 pointsr/boardgames

I would get Coup

u/Sneet1 · 0 pointsr/magicTCG

I know this is probably not the thing you want to hear, but maybe considering something other than Magic.

Magic is really good when

  • you have effort money to keep up with a meta

  • you have enough money to not get stomped by your local meta

  • you have the time and energy to keep up with how devoted your local players are

    These things make the game incredibly fun; but they also make it not really great for two players to play against each other on a low budget. It's unlikely with the amount that you drop that you will be able to ever compete with your local playgroup as they have inevitably spent much, much more. Not to mention you lose out on many aspects that make mtg fun at such a low budget - you're not playing competitively in pickup games with other mtg players, you're stuck playing the small amount of cards you have against each other.

    I would recommend something like Android: Netrunner ( For $30 you're getting a complete card pool as it's a CCG - there isn't the booster pack aspect of spending money on random cards, you just get every card in the set and can buy expanding sets if you'd like. You can play with each other and aren't limited by cards you don't have, and you can incorporate other players as well.

    If you really wanna stick to mtg, two intro decks or deckbuilders toolkits will give you a pretty deep pool to entertain yourself for a while. I have to say though that going this route, you're going to chafe the edges of your cage pretty quickly - mtg isn't really a game designed for what you're looking for.

u/maynardftw · 0 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

u/missmercy87 · -1 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
