    What's everyone's favourite Board Game or Table Top.

    I have a couple that are at the top of my list:

    Catan: lots of good memories playing with the family
    Life: I play it like real life by trying to amass as much debt as possible

    Where to even begin?

    Descent: Journeys in the Dark (2nd Edition) - I'm obsessed with Fantasy Flight Games's Terrinoth universe and it all started for me with this game. It's a 1v4 fantasy dungeon crawler where one person plays the evil Overlord and up to four others play heroes of standard fantasy classes. I love miniatures and this one has a ton. I've since collected almost all of the expansions and add-ons, and they've added a 4 player co-op mode using a tablet as the Overlord.

    Abyss - Gorgeous underwater-themed game that's slightly hard to explain but incredibly fun to play. It has some of the best art I've ever seen in a board game.

    Mansions of Madness - Similar to Descent, but with Cthulhu and a 20's American setting. My gaming group always has a blast playing this game. We also have the second edition which is equally fun if not more. Like Descent's tablet co-op mode, the second edition of MoM is exclusively played as a co-op against the computer player, which makes solving clues and fighting monsters that much more intense.

    Cyclades - A very fun Risk-esque game set in ancient Greece. Players bid on offering to the major gods of Olympus and get various bonuses for doing so. It's such a fun time and involves just the right amount of strategy.

    Arcadia Quest - I actually have the Inferno version and not the original base game. My group loves this game! You build your own guild of three heroes and fight in six scenarios to see who can come out on top. It's crazy that not only are you fighting each other, but the monsters of the board game as well. A lot of strategy involved, but even better... a huge supply of minis! Especially if you pledge on one of the company's Kickstarters. They include a ton of exclusive heroes and bits to use.

    Other games that my group is loving:

    Dead of Winter

    Celestia

    Sheriff of Nottingham

    Betrayal at the House on the Hill

    Red Dragon Inn

    I've played this once, and loved it.

    My old gaming group played this a couple of times, and everything that could go wrong for me did. Made for a lot of fun!

    I've been playing a lot of Dead of Winter (friends and wife), Epic Tiny Galaxies (solo and with wife), King of Tokyo & King of New York (family), Carcassone (friends & wife the OG version and the kid version with family), Castle Panic (solo and family), and Munchkin Quest (wife and friends) a lot these last few months.

    Play lots of vanilla Munchkin and the Apocalypse version with my wife. Supehero is fun but other than vanilla, Apocalypse has a nice variant on the Munchkin play style.

    My son and oldest daughter are eager to get going on their first game of Mice and Mystics after playing Munchkin Quest.

    I recently discovered the Royal Game of Ur. It is so much fun! It's easy to explain but takes years to master. It's older than chess and backgammon but plays kinda like backgammon. It's more of a race game.

    For me...

    Dominion - Easily my favourite. I love everything about this game. I've played some other deck builders (albeit only on my iPad) and nothing comes close. The great thing about it is that each game has a different combination of cards available, so it's a new puzzle every time. A card which is great in one game can be useless in the next.

    Carcassone - Just incredibly easy and fun to play. I've reached the stage now where I think I need an expansion, but I do love it.

    Magic: The Gathering

    Agricola

    Forbidden Desert

    Forbidden Island

    Splendor

    7 Wonders

    Dixit

    Tokaido (I like this, but it's not popular with the people I play with sadly)

    Photosynthesis - I got this and played for the first time on Sunday (Father's Day present). Seems very good so far. Lots of potential - and not a single random element.

    Viticulture - Only played once, but I really liked it.


    I used to really like Settlers of Catan - but I'm forced to play it every Friday when I have a game night with my wife and her parents - and it's long long outstayed its welcome for me.
