Re: Board Game recommendations?

You should try the game Puerto Rico. It's a very fun game, ala Settlers of Catan.
Doesn't take that much in the way of time or board setup either.

It doesn't have to be a huge change (like making it 4 dam), could just be upping the ac and adding a second affect slot (20 hp maybe, or -5 sv_sp, ...
