None of that mass market crap

Here's an epic list of epic boardgames:


Power Grid

Twilight Struggle

Eclipse

Arkham Horror

Shogun

War of the Ring

Twilight Imperium 3rd edition


And I'll through in some card games too:

The Mystery Rummy series of card games

Race for the Galaxy

although a few of the ones you mentioned are really good, and i own them (Race for the Galaxy, Twilight Imperium3, PowerGrid, Eclipse) unfortunatley none of them are on xbla. i would however pay 1,600msp if TwilightImperium3 ever found its way on xbla in a heartbeat.

I misread what was going on in this topic and just wanted to drop a list of epic games on the board.

shogi is a eastern chess variant, if you havent tried it out you should.

Catan, Carcassonne, and Ticket to Ride aren't "mass market crap". The games you list are good ones (I own Arkham Horror), but they are some of the more involved boards games. There's a place for "lighter" niche games too, like Gloom, Elder Sign, Zombies!!!, Zombie Dice, Munchkin, Tsuro, and others...just like there's a place for games like Risk (especially Risk 2210 AD), Go, Chess, and others.
