    The way we do board game night with my friends.
    Is it Munchkin? Yes = Good
    No = Lets play Munchkin next.

      Oh god Munchkin! I miss playing that. I used to go to a local comic shop on weekends to play Yu-gi-oh (which should probably be up there right next to Magic, seriously the trading market was so over inflated I couldn’t afford shit!) but most of the time I’d end up sitting with my friend Matt and play either Munchkin or Dominion.

    Cards against humanity Is possibly the best thing to come out of kickstarter that I know of, needs to be a non family night, or a messed up family.

    So. I just found some cool new board games to try out.

    Mancala is also good.

    I’m surprised that D&D isn’t anywhere in that flow chart.

    why is Arkham Horror deriving from a “2 hours or less” option? I’ve seen games take up to 7 hours, with inexperienced players and the usual is around 3h to finish.

    unless you die horribly meanwhile :P

    awesome. found one issue with it though. warhammer branches off from the tree for not having to play more than 2 hours. with the crazy amount of rules and setup and rules lawyering and whatnot that goes along with the game i don’t think i’ve ever had a match that took less than 3. other than that, though, pretty sweet :P
