I'm curious of anyone here has tried out the games "Shadows Over Camelot" or "Pandemic". Both look like great co-op games and I'm looking to add one or both of those to my collection (which is missing a co-op game).

Pandemic is alot of fun, as long as you are playing with a group that doesn't mind losing. You are likely to lose more games of Pandemic than you win, but we still love the challenge.

In the other thread I said there was a cool board games store in the Chicago suburbs. It is actually in Wes Des Moines.

My mother-in-law asked what I wanted for Christmas this year and demanded that I don't say my typical "Nothing". So now I'm highly anticipating my gift of the following:

Seasons
Libertalia
Smash Up
Isla Dorada

So looking forward to some quality gametime.

Also you should check out Wil Wheaton's Youtube show called Tabletop.
Here's the episode they do on Pandemic. My friends and I have acquired several new games based off of episodes of his show.

I've watched all his shows that are out now. I wish I had awesome friends like that around here. I just have to settle for Tzalik. 8(

So, Smash Up is a pretty fantastic "light" game! Especially with all 4 players. I can't wait for the expansion coming out around March/April because it offers up 4 more factions (one of which is Steampunk!) and that could theoretically make for 2 more players.

Seasons is a great game as well. A bit heavier than Smash Up in the strategy, but I would love for more player interaction. Sometimes it just feels like playing multiplayer solitaire. Perhaps when it's expansion comes out (also March/April) it will add more of that.

Hoping to give Libertalia and Ilsa Dorada a go soon. I'm really dying to play Libertalia, but my gaming buds have been pleading to play the previous two.

I tried to get my wife to give it a shot. Gaming isn't really her thing and she has this thing against fantasy stuff and I think sci-fi isn't her cup of bananas either... anyway I figured that trains can't possibly be something one could turn down!

Apparently I am wrong.

I think I've seen that one being played at my local store. Twisted... TWISTED... game.

Oddly enough, my wife digs Munchkin. Though, for the life of me, I can't figure out why she can't remember how to play the game every time we bring it out...

Finally got my kids to play some games with me! My oldest played Libertalia with the rest of the group (making the 6th player) and then last night both my kids opted to play Heap (post-apocalyptic setting with goblin scavengers battling over a scrap heap to make better vehicles).

Yesterday I discovered a new game coming out later on, which is currently in Kickstarter, that I'm very much chomping at the bit for. So much so, I'm very close to backing it.

The game is called Hegemonic. It's a 4x style game done in a very Euro fashion. I have played, and enjoyed, Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy, but the die rolling for combat literally screws me over. (I mean how often do I need to roll 4+ with 8 dice and only get 1 success... far too many times!).

Aside from being diceless, this game also allows for politcs (both NPC and PC) and economic takeovers as well as military strength when it comes to resolving conflicts between players.

Have any of you guys played Sentinels of the Multiverse? It's a coop game were each player picks a superhero and uses a deck of cards to team up and defeat a villain. Each hero has a separate deck with their own unique cards and there are several different villain decks to play against as well as a variety of environments that each can affect the battle in different ways.

I have not, but hopefully my FLGS has it as a demo... I'll try to check it out this weekend if so. I hear it's very entertaining.
