Last Night on Earth - awesome zombie game with many scenarios to keep the game interesting

Magic the Gathering - at least they realized white borders suck

Dreamblade - Out of Production but still an awesome game, Like chess meets magic

All Flesh Must Be Eaten - A zombie RPG that kicks major butt.

Horrorclix - Great skirmish type CCG game with a Horror Theme and Lovecraft elements as well as unique 5 sided plastic card design

 Kingdom Hearts TCG: It is an awesome game and will interest any hardcore kingdom hearts player or anyone wanting a different card game than the usual.

I agree with Card_Breaker, it is a very fun game that is very reminiscent of the actual video game, and I guess it is a good way to wait out until the next game comes out (which is in 2 days!!!!)

I have to agree with them. Kingdom Hearts is a really good game. I mean you have you basically wait them out deck *coughminecough* Aggro and World Racer. It's really fun and you dont have to buy millions of packs to get SR cards since most of the SR's are also R.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle

Best Multi-player ccg out there, and it's been around for close to 15 years now.

Tournaments usually consist of 4-5 player tables, and it's not a quick game. Tournament rounds tend to last 2-3 hours.

If you're looking for something with some depth, complexity and intrigue, check it out.

Mythos, an earlier CCG from Chaosium. More story based than CoC, which is good or bad depending on what you're looking for.

Mythos CCG, the predecessor

Call of Cthulhu RPG, the progenitor

Pendragon RPG, the antithesis

World of Darkness RPGs, the extrapolations


And board games of all kinds (Citadels, Agricola, Thebes, Carcassonne, and so on...)

Been playing Monsterpocalypse since Horrorclix went under, and it's a lot of fun.  You have six different factions, from giant robot defenders to dinosaurs.  My faction is the Lords of Cthul, a group of tentacled beasts from another dimension, obviously based on the Cthulhu mythos.

Basically, each monster has an army of 15 units it can take into battle.  The game takes place one of several city maps, which also contain building models that, if secured, give the monster various benefits.  Of course, the buildings are usually reduced to rubble during the battle, either for power dice (allowing the monster to generate more powerful attacks) or when you throw your opponent into buildings for additional damage.

The sculpted figures are beautiful.  The game is easy to learn, but can be difficult to play.  Each monster has different abilities, changing how you play the game and how you battle your opponent.  It's a pretty fun way to spend a few hours.

Old World of Darkness (any game line) - My fav Rpg. Atmosphere, political/ social satire, Hot ass Goth-chicks.

Star Trek CCG 2e- Best representation of Trek in card form. Extremely well playing game. Great Look. Helps that I'm a Trekkie

Dragon Strike- Old game, TSR's attempt to distill DnD into Boardgame form. Most hated it, I love it, just a great game experience.

Maplestory iTCG- Awesome anime-ish art and an interesting play mechanic, too bad WoTC kills any game they produce that isn't Magic.

Rage- My first ever ccg experience. Great art, mostly good play. Fond memories...

 Arkham Horror is the obvious answer.

Race for the Galaxy (cards, in space...a little complicated to begin with, but very fun when you wrap your head around it)

Small World (fantasy Risk done right, based on Vinci which I haven't played)

A Touch of Evil is fun- my wife and 13 year old daughter love it. Also, a little more family friendly than Last Night on Earth (which is a great game, too).

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The US version is surprisingly good and deserves a little more credit than it gets.

Betrayal at the House on the Hill- Is a great game that's getting hard to find.

That's just staying in the horror genre. I'm looking forward to the Deadlands game by Twilight Creations.

Dreamblade Now that it is out of production you actually can afford to buy the game. Anyone around in Germany still playing the game?

Travelling for LCG tournaments: Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Gen Con, Genoa, Göteborg, Liege, Salzburg, Torino
Next destination: Make a suggestion!

There are many Cthulhu/Mythos based RPG's out there but one that seems to be getting a good amount of press and quality reviews is Cthulhutech.


A lovecraftian future with some anime style.

 Fun miniatures skirmish game. You have to buy your own minis, but the rules are free.

Mythos Miniatures



PS: DisclosureI wrote the rules.

Also playing MonPoc weekly, (and a few of the other games mentioned).  With the affordable LCG format, Im actually getting into Warhammer:Invasion and back into Game of Thrones.  Last Night on Earth = Awesome!,  Star Wars Miniature battles, and Crimson Skies (The airplane combat clix game NOT the video game).  Munchkins, Chez Geek...

I picked up a few of the Horror clix but it never took off here.  Everyone seemed to complain about the incompatability with Hero clix rather then just playing the damn game.  Around that time I picked up Halo clix too, which now that I think of it, didn't take off for the same reason  =

I saw someone mention Vampire:The Eternal Struggle?  Man, I played that when it was called Jyhad.  That was a long time ago!  Believe it or not, On the Edge has begun to make a resurgance too in my local brick and mortar store.
