7 Wonders - I'm one of the few people who really doesn't feel this game at all. I don't see the appeal, and I've played it a few times, and a few more with the Babel expansion, in hopes I'd eventually like it. I'd rather play Elysium (great) or Among the Stars (even greater).
T.I.M.E. Stories: The Marcy Case Expansion - Try to find some non-spoilerly videos about this on YouTube. T.I.M.E. Stories is just a great game and some say to play these expansions in the order they're released... hmmm... what could that mean?
Alchemists - WHAT a brain burner! Our first game took around 4 hours, just trying to figure it all out.. we took a food break and played a SECOND GAME for another 2 hours! As time consuming as this game is, we still get it onto the table as much as we can. The use of the app is great and fun, but the deduction/puzzle solving is my favorite part of all. Highly recommended!
Cosmic Encounter - I'm going to sound like a fanboy here, but I have to agree with a lot of people... this is one of the best games ever. I LOVE poker and how you can play the people vs playing your cards... this game lends to that. At some point, you're not really playing the game as much as you are playing with people and personalities. My #1 game so far!
