Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

I picked up all the previous X games on a fire-sale Humble Bundle right before Rebirth came out but [more]

Re: recommend me something! (and my BGG collecti

I'll second Munchkin and Star Fluxx, and add Star Munchkin (and there's more if that's a hit). Pandemic is a very challenging co-op game that's pretty fun if you've got 3 or 4 players who are into it. Can be short if you let things spiral out of [more]
