As usual, the following list represents the games played at the club, and does not include games I may have played outside the club. Information about all of these games can be found on Board Game Geek (when the site is back up).
Age of Steam - Excellent pick-up and deliver train game, a hefty length at three hours. Very tight money management, and inelegant leader correction mechanic.
Andromeda - I didn't play this. It didn't look that good.
Bridge x 2 - Being played more frequently at the end of the evening. There are many bridge clubs in Jerusalem.
By Hook or By Crook x 2 - Chaos game for light gamers, I don't particularly find it that exciting. Some of the gamers love it.
Caylus - Too hefty for its mechanics. Has lots of nice ideas, but can drag on. Also, after a few plays, I'm not finding it that challenging, mostly because I don't really care by the end of it. A good game when all players are experienced.
Cosmic Encounter - Universally loved by the group. We play only the Mayfair edition with More Cosmic.
Empire Builder - Tried and found to be a good basis for a game, but boring in its basic form. Some variants will probably add interest.
Havoc: the Hundred Years War x 3 - A nice filler for 2 to 6 players, except a little long for a filler.
Lo Ra - Nadine's Jewish themed variant for Ra. Mostly plays well, but some patches of extreme luck almost ruin the game.
Lord of the Rings: the Confrontation x 6 - A very good light two-player filler.
Magic: the Gathering x 3 - One of The Games, I play with David when he comes by. We NEVER play tournament, we just draft from whatever cards are lying around.
New England - Clunky mesh between mechanics and theme, and an inelegant resupply mechanic, but an enjoyable and reasonably meaty game.
The Menorah Game - A light filler for 2 to 4. Would be nice to get a real copy made one day.
Oh Hell - A quick classic card game filler.
Power Grid x 3 - Loved by the group, but drags with 6 people. Plays 2 to 5 better.
Puerto Rico - The Game.
San Juan x 3 - The Filler Game, even though it is nowhere near as good as Puerto Rico.
Santiago - New to the group, and only played a few times, but liked a lot. I love the game.
Sergeant Major - A card game I didn't play.
Set - Played as a filler with children.
Settlers of Catan x 2 - Still a staple game.
Shadows Over Camelot x 2 - Loved by everyone in the group except for me. And accommodates a large group.
Taj Mahal - A staple game, holding strong.
Tigris and Euphrates - I used to have a hard time getting people to play this, because I loved it but the group didn't. The last game we played seemed to have turned some of them around. I look forward to bringing it out again soon.
Tikal - A nice game, always plays better than expected.
Twilight Imperium III - Simply too darn long for the group. Some people also believe that the game is going to become repetitive after a few plays.
War - Sad, but true. Next.
Winner's Circle x 2 - A light luck-filled game, with some interest. Reasonably short and fun.
Yinsh - An excellent 2-player filler abstract.
