My friends and I play a LOT of board games. Our rule when buying new ones is "the heavier the box and the more pieces it says it has, the better". Our favorites have been Twilight Imperium, Settlers of Catan, Axis and Allies (old version, new version screws it up), and Last Night on Earth, but we have about 20 others we break out when we feel like it. We also have run 8 RPG campaigns in 8 different systems (D&D 3.5, SWRPG, White Wolf, Sorcerer, Don't Rest Your Head, the original Star Trek RPG, TROS, Traveler). We rarely, if ever, finish full campaigns, and we haven't finished a serious game of Twilight Imperium in like 2 years because we keep teaching new players and we're nowhere near done after 9 hours, but it's really more about the people you play with anyway.
