× Welcome to one of the oldest board game communities on the Internet. That may sound like hyperbole but it really is true.

We are really happy to have you here. Unfortunately, being online we can't bond with you over a game so you'd know right away how happy we are to meet you. For now, you'll just have to take our word for it.

This site has always thrived on lively discussion and spirited but civil debate. We hope that newcomers here will find a welcoming atmosphere where game enthusiasts of all levels of experience and commitment will have something to add to the conversation. You never need to prove your “gamer cred” here. Whether you have been playing board games for a few months or a few decades; whether you have a huge collection or a small one; whether you have been a member here for years or just joined today – your opinion is valued here.

We know that it can be intimidating to jump into a new community and want to assure you that this is NOT the kind of forum where people will tell you that you posted something in the wrong place, or that you should have found an existing thread on the topic, or that you shouldn’t have resurrected an old thread.

So if you find a thread or an article discussion that interests you, whether it is old or new, feel free to jump in. Want to discuss a specific game or board gaming related topic just start a new topic. If you don’t know which forum to put it in, just make your best guess (we really don’t care all that much. It’s easy enough for a moderator to move it or merge it, if necessary).

A good place to get started is by introducing yourself in the “New Members Introduce Yourself” thread (below) or by telling us what you have been playing in the “What BOARD GAME(s) have you been playing?" thread ( ).

Have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you.

In truth, I'm not a huge fan of American slasher films, either, as I much prefer Italian giallos. But CZ does the slasher homage really well. I hope you enjoy the game.

Looks like I have a cool new sub-genre to explore. I thought that Suspiria was a unique movie, but it seems that it's one of these giallo movies.

Giallos are typically Italian psychothrillers. As Italian horror goes, Suspiria is fairly unusual, but Argento hit a similar note in other films. Not sure if you've seen Inferno, which is kind of a sequel to Suspiria (part 1 and 2 of the Three Mothers trilogy). Highly recommended. Argento's visual style is second to none. Brilliant use of color, lighting, and depth. Basically all of His films are worth exploring--especially up to 1990. His more recent stuff is a little more uneven. Lucio Fulci and Mario Bava are worth checking out. Fulci's Lizard In a Woman's Skin is one of the best pure giallos I've seen.
