Just curious, I am an avid tabletop gamer myself, but there seems to be few teens into the hobby, it seems to be more popular among college students.

By tabletop, do mean board games like Scrabble?

I've always wanted to get into DnD, but I haven't had the time, if that counts.

No no, not those sorts of games. :) Nor D&D either. Game design has come a long way since D&D. No, I'm talking more intense strategy games like Runewars or Android: Netrunner.


Rephrase: Has anyone here ever heard of the companies Z-man Games, Fantasy Flight Games, Rio Grande Games? Mayfair Games? Days of Wonder? Plaid Hat Games?


Here's an example pic of the type of game I'm talking about so you guys don't think I'm crazy:

Looks a lot more advanced than anything I've ever played.

my older brother and my dad play those types of games, they play X-Wing. I watch sometimes but its hard to pay attention to if youre not playing bc its so complicated.

i like board games like marvel legendary, citadels, bang, agricola and catan. those are usually the only games they will play with me.

Yes, finally!

I really like Citadels, I don't get to play it that often because it is a little harder to sell to people, but it is a really fun game. How is marvel legendary anyway, I've been thinking about getting it.

X-wing, yeah that can get pretty complex, especially if they have a large collection.

Yell yeah, I am lucky enough that I have a friend whose brother and father also play. I've only played "Scythe" and "Warzone: Dawn of War".

Scythe: https://stonemaiergames.com/games/scythe/

Warzone - Dawn of War: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/67552/warzone-dawn-war


Both are brilliant :)
