That actually sounds like an awesome game. Not sure if I can talk the other execs into buying it, though XD

Bring it in some time, and I'll try it out on the new batch of first-years. They're surprisingly eager to play anything I put in front of them.

Surely I should appear to scare them off.

We picked up Power Grid, Netrunner, San Juan, and Ghost Stories. Thunderstone: Advance will also be forthcoming (as soon as it's back in stock!).

GIVE US MORE BOARD GAME REQUESTS. All we have on the to-buy list right now is Eclipse and Elder Sign: Unseen Forces. If you don't give us suggestions Jeremy will just buy all the ones that he wants :P

You could always add more expansions to Dominion;)

Do you have Lord of the Rings (the cooperative game)?

An odd-ball, but maybe you can find The Viking Game (also known as Hnefatafl)?  An old 2 player game (old as in centuries old).

Maybe more maps for Power Grid?

And in rpgs, I keep beating my indie game drum but I think Dogs in the Vineyard is worth a look, as is Jaws of the Six Serpents or Swashbucklers of the Seven Skies.  For super-hero games BASH is cheap and easy to play.

no to dominion. the club has enough of the expansions.  the other deckbuilders could use an expansion or two because they are still stuck at base set.  besides dominion is now the weakest of all the deckbuilders. you should try some of the other ones. oh wait you cant.

LotR co-op is pretty good.  Terra Mystica Eclipse.  Mice and Mystic. Legendary the Marvel deckbuilder but it needs the expac to make it really good.

some more powergrid boards, ticket to ride germany/netherlands.   just not africa. 

how about a club copy of seasons.

get the last expansion of BSG just to balance things.

perhaps smallworld underworld.

revolution (if the club doesnt have it.  I thought the club does but i currently dont see it)
love letter.
Yggdrasil: thats a co-op game. 
Things die.  People burn.  This is the way of all things.   This is my way *cackle*

Another thing you could do is go to boardgamegeek and see how they rank their games.

(For the record, Dominion is ranked #17, and its Intrigue expansion (which also works either as a stand-alone or as a way to expand to 5-6 players) ranked #15).

If you are also shopping for rpgs, there is a sister site, with its rating system.  It warms my heart to see the D&D Rules Cylopedia still is high in the ranks.   8)
