    In EG's case, it's more their reputation among customers and players, really. I haven't been there lately, but at one stage they had three whole floors of private gaming rooms to rent!

    Flash Point is surprisingly good fun, game based on putting out house fires, but you do need several sets to really get into it.

    Blood Bowl by Games Workshop is an enjoyable 2 player game, and unlike their other properties, just the basic boxed set is good fun, or you can pick up extra teams at a sensible price.

    Re: Board games that don't leave you bored!

    Pandemic - really good, and the android app is worth getting
    Infiltration - really enjoy this, if anyone finds a computer version do let me know. Hacking and data extracting from the evil corporation. Should pique a few techy interests...
    Settlers of Catan (particularly Cities and Knights) - a bit 2008 these days maybe, but still playable. CatanOnlineWorld can rot in hell however.
    Race for the Galaxy - card based game derived from (and IMO much better than) Puerto Rico
    Puerto Rico - enjoyable strategy game good for the family
    Dominion
    And the classic mah-jong meets rummy card game that is, and ever will be, Mhing
    Oh and scrabble/super scrabble (obviously)

    Re: Board games that don't leave you bored!

    Me and my mates buy so many it's impossible list them all.

    Some notable favourites:

    Small World
    Champions of Midgard - Worker Placement
    Star Wars Carcassone - Great twist on a classic, intro's a bit of conflict as you can capture some things someone else has already claimed
    Space Hulk
    Fury of Dracula - Co-op and versus in one (takes a good few hours though)
    Tsuro - tile placing game
    Sentinels of the Multiverse - co-op super hero game, very very good, hell of a lot of expansions tho

    One to avoid though is Legendary:Marvel, most expensive game i ever bought (dropped 70 notes on it) and no one enjoys playing it, not even me!

    I tend to try and watch some people playing them first before buying but end up buying a lot cause i see people play them. If you want to find some good games check out the TableTop series on Geek and Sundry on you tube. Found many a good game from there.
