We have been having fun with Puerto Rico since Christmas. Simple yet deep. The amount of detailed needy analysis of this game on the web is impressive.
And it's inspired many other great games...

The sheriff of notthingham is a great party / family card game. Involves players taking turn playing the sheriff and basically having the other players having to lie in declaring what they have in their bag to sneak contraband past him. The sound of your bag opening brings laughter and sometimes dred to the group lol. Really recommend it.

I've just found an old link to a list of board games and I wondered if there was a thread on here for SFF based games where I could post it.

Silly me. Of course there is ;)

A lot on the list have already been mentioned, but I'm ashamed to say I've only heard of a couple and played even fewer

Carcassonne sounds great, I'm off to try and find a software version

Carcassonne is great. Made even better by the Inns and Cathedrals expansion.
From that list I would also recommend Ticket to Ride and 7 wonders which my family have played regularly for years. Dominion is a clever game which has some serious fans.
Check out the top 100 or so games on the Boardgamegeek website.

Does anyone else play Illuminati? This is one of SJGames best and was recently updated and reissued.

Has anyone here played either Concordia or Castles of Burgundy?

If so, any opinions?

Thinking of getting them to help keep the family entertained over the Summer.

The latest review from Ars Technica, a board game civilisation builder

As a fan of of empire building games, I'd like to give this a go, but I don't have any friends who'd play it with me :cry:
It's not the end of the world; it has an excellent solo "automa" that simulates another player so you don't need any friends!
