Pick me a game! 11 Mar 2018 20:21 #265340

So I haven't bought any board games for almost 2 years. I want to get something. I zeroed to three titles:

Concordia - Seems to be well-loved, medium Euro, if a little bit dry
Game comes with double-sided board which is a plus.

Great Western Trail - My heaviest Euro right now is Agricola and I'd love to dip my toes on heavier games since I don't feel Agricola is heavy enough.

Zombicide Black Plague - Mindless dice chucking, full co op.

All these games look great. I already have Descent 2, which I love. For Euros I have TTR, Steam, Cuba, Castles of Burgundy, and Agricola.

I can only pick one. Help me.

Man, I would not go Great Western Trial if I was going heavy euro. I've only seen a video playthrough, but what a nightmarish mishmash.

Heard good things about Concordia.

Great Western Trail is junk. Don't bother.

Concordia is okay, but nothing special.

I really like both Great Western Trail and Zombicide Black Plague.

I’d recommend Feast for Odin over GWT, though.

I'm ok with Ben Affleck playing Batman. At least there will be a better director on set.

Guys you're not making this any easier.

How replayable is Black Plague? I heard the game is samey, game to game.

I can't afford Feast for Odin. It's like $120 over here.

Barney, you have played GWT?

Save your money and a better game will get your attention soon enough.

Sure, but I'm not looking for that best game.

At first I thought I want a heavy Euro. I actually included Madeira (and Vinhos, Through the Ages, Scythe, and Orleans) in my consideration. Concordia entered later, with so many people (and reviewers) liking it. I like that it's only four pages. SUSD in particular even promoting the game during Istanbul review.

Somehow Black Plague slipped into the last round.
