  • I'm also a bit of a game geek. One of the best games I've come across I found in Dutch called 'Koehandel' or something like it (basically, cow market).

    It involves economic decisions and a bit of gamesmanship which makes it a very interesting strategy game.

    According to boardgamegeek [boardgamegeek.com] it's called "You're bluffing" in English, which seems like a bit of a crap name, but there you go...

    • That might be another one to teach my son. He can already play Hunters & Gathers, Bohnanza, Mississippi Queen and Freight Train. I'm just waiting until he's old enough to play the likes of Verräter and Rail Baron :)
      • C'mon, quit playing those wimpy Eurogames and play a real wargame! Dice! Hexagons! Gobs of charts and tables! 12+ hour playing times!

        :-P

        • You mean like ManorCon [diplom.org] :)

          I missed last year and this, but DanDan might be old enough to come along with me next year :) Although apart from Risk, I've never been into the big long wargames. I get bored as it takes ages for anything to happen.

          • I wouldn't call Risk a wargame - it's a dicefest. :)

            I think a better introduction to (light) wargames for Eurogamers would be something like Wallenstein [boardgamegeek.com] or Struggle of Empires [boardgamegeek.com]. These games have conflict, but no charts and such, and it is represented abstractly. There is also much less combat overall than Risk, i.e. it's part of the game, but it's not all combat all the time.
