Tabletop gamers, with their numerous experiences dealing with all sorts of precarious scenarios, diabolical traps, and formidable opponents, often consider themselves above and beyond the paltry offerings of board games. This statement's validity, though existential, may be overestimated, in some cases. The most likely source of this possible exaggeration would be the scope within which one has been exposed to board games in general. For those whom the term exclusively conjures images of the 'Monopoly Man' and 'Trivial Pursuits', I'd like to take the opportunity to broaden your horizons with what I consider to be one of the most respectable and well-categorized collection of board gaming know-how on the internet:
Even those with previously experience or knowledge of the relatively obscure selections presented upon the site, it's worth noting that a healthy collection of a few quality, engaging board games can complement even the most die-hard tabletop gamer's arsenal. In fact, quite a few of these offerings can provide an experience quite difficult to reproduce without such a specially-designed box of equipment. 'Ultimate Werewolf', for example, can provide entertainment for a large party with a group role playing experience for up to 68 players. The 'Arkham Horror' materials, on the other hand, serve nicely as an introduction to the world of tabletop gaming for the uninitiated. In any case, it's always pleasant to surprise your group and/or break up any possible monotony with a nice, informal board game.
