Good times indeed! Take care not to confound the fun factor from Ghost Recon with board games. Tension and threat vs. strategy and planning. Board games are still a lot of fun, I simply like moving the ‘Tötzeli’ around

Not a particularly relevant post, since you were mentioning war/strategy boardgames, but I think A Ticket to Ride has a lot of subtle nuances that make it a great game, without being terribly complicated. Not that I didn’t always enjoy the 30 minutes it would take us to set up our Axis & Allies games…

Heh, Ticket to Ride does in fact sound quite interesting! Right now I’m stocking up on strategy games, however, to fill the gap between Go and Squad Leader.

I keep thinking of Diplomacy and this great article I read a long time ago.
