Well,

Mage Wars is my top game, together with M.E.R.C.S. These two i play continually for months.

My new casual favourite is Trieste, Space Station and Wilderness.

I also play Dungeon Command and miniature games from D&D (Castle Ravenloft etc.). I would like to play Paizo's Pathfinder, but I don't have a group of interested players for now. I used to play M:tG, but lately it required bigger and bigger investment of time and money, so I quit some time ago. Now I am a very happy Mage Wars player and it consumes almost all my free time, so I can't play anything else really :)
Please excuse my bad English :)

I have a long list of games I play but a short list of friend who will play with me.

Everything that everyone has posted all seem like fantastic games I would love to play in the future. The current games I find myself gravitating to is Risk and the Game of Thrones LCG and the board game. Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan are also up in the top of my gaming list.

Pretty much any games involving in-depth strategy is what I love. I also love Monopoly but no one will play with me because I take no prisoners  ;D

We have game nights about every other week.  My wife likes Alahambra, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Dominion, Tales of the Arabian Nights.  I like Mage Wars, Marvel Legendary Heroes, Duel of Ages II, Cosmic Encounter, Red Dragon Inn.

Of course, my favorite game was Pathfinder, but it's impossible to get the same group of people together even once every two weeks as adults, so Pathfinder went by the wayside.  Still have all my books, minis and maps, though. 

Only been to one con, Origins, but that was before the baby was born.  She's two this year.  We're thinking of getting back to Origins next year possibly.

I love Origins. Even living in Indiana, it's my favorite con of the year. Such a fun atmosphere. Then there is Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. I mean that's really why I go to Ohio.

Just picked up Cosmic Encounter 2 days ago and I've already played it like 5 times. I love it. Pretty random and chaotic, but in a fun, entertaining kind of way. Using alien powers is awesome.

& I love games where I'm supposed to lie and backstab people. It's always fun, as long as they remember it's just a game and don't get upset about it.

Star Wars: X-wing is a fantastic game. I'm really looking forward to having some Z-95's.

I'm really looking forward to WizKid's implementation of the Flight Path system with D&D Attack Wing. Aerial combat with Dragons? Yes please.

It's pretty intriguing. We'll just have to see how it works out with dragons and troops.

Let's see.  My favorite game of all time is Summoner Wars, for a variety of reasons.  I also love BattleCON, Ascension, City of Remnants, and Heroscape.  I have a love for tactical games, though I enjoy any game with a player to player element.  I'm not the biggest fan of Euro games, because A, I'm a tactical games fan, and B, one of my friends is incredibly good at them and has never lost.

Here is the list of pretty much all the over 530 games I played at least once: http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Wildhorn?rated=1&subtype=boardgame&ff=1

My favorites are Mage Wars, Terra Mystica, Russian Rairoads, Carcasonne, Taluva, Quantum, Airlines Europe, Dice Town, Krosmaster Arena, and I am better to stop now else I might add 20 more games to my favorite list.

Wow, Agricola only got a 6! That is the only other game that has rated a 10 in my book, have a couple of hundred 2 players down on that one. Really do like Castles of Burgundy and Tzolk'in the blue skulls just rock! I agree that NHex is very well done on Android though some of the expansions are hard to win with or against. GOA/Purteo Rico type games I really like, the worker placement/resource management really tickles the strategy/tactics itch I like in my games.

No wonder I like Mage Wars you get all of the goodness of the euro style management games and you also get to yell "There can only be one!" at the end of the game as you watch you opponents head roll. Well that is how I see in my mind video....
