I have a new addiction – boardgames!

I recently played Munchkin, Cutthroat Caverns, Lifeboat and I enjoyed it very much. (Do card games like Munchkin count as board games?)

My favorite so far is Munchkin.

I love the flavour of the game, making fun of more “serious” games like D&D or Diablo-like games. Nothing beats “helping” out a friend with a Wandering Monster that will kill him and prevent him looting or winning the game, or using an Freezing Exploding potion to turn the fight in your favor, or using a Doppelganger to practically double yourself and defeat that difficult monster.

However, i’m more of a miniature games player; I’ve tried mostly Warhammer (both fantasy and 40k) and liked them both, also Mordheim and Tannhauser(which i think is a really a great game with excellent illustrations and minis), to name a few.

I’m recently hyped about Dust Tactics by Fantasy Flight Games – awesome artworks and design by artist Paolo Parente (he also did some Wizards of the Coast illustrations and comics and created the DUST world). Check out the trailer below:
