Haven't played Dominion in awhile, but I'm looking forward to Adventures :) I do prefer kingdoms that have attacks or cards that do things for other players (like Council Room or Embassy). The gaming groups I play with divvy up in interests in lots of ways, but the most common games are 7 Wonders, Dominion, Race for the Galaxy and Resistance: Avalon. One particular group is very heavily invested in Netrunner, and while I like to goof around with them I've kind of fallen off the bandwagon for that.

If I had a choice in the matter (and other players wanted to participate) I prefer to play Eclipse or Quantum, as 4X games are more my thing. I haven't played Twilight Imperium yet, but I've heard lots of good things about it. Apparently there's a game called Civilization by Avalon Hill which is apparently a very old and very well designed 4X. A coworker mentioned that he had a copy and would bring it in sometime, but warned that the game would easily take up to 2 hours.
it's not too fun to wander...

If your into 4x board games civilisation the board game by fantasy flight may be worth looking at, it's based off the PC Civ 4 game.

Whoa Adventures looks a bit like a bit of everything... not sure I'm quite on board yet, I'll need to see some card previews.

I've recentely started playing the board game "go". It's basically a game within the same genre of checkers and chess made by ancient eastern-asian upper-class men. Apparently it's the oldest game known today however I may have my facts wrong there.
It basically consists of placing stones (one player has black, the other white) on a board and trying to capture your opponents stones by surrounding them while also surrounding as much as the board as you can. The board is made up of intersections in a 19x19 shape (sooo, 361 intersections I believe) and you get 1 point for every intersection without a stone in it you surround at game end as well as getting 1 point for every stone you captured.
It's a really simple concept yet it has an incredibly complex strategy once you delve into it. I'm enjoying it online as nobody in the Netherlands plays it really and I'm enjoying the challenge it poses me.

Heard Go breaks simulations harder then chess does. Want to try it once as well.
