If you had to recommend someone play five games to really get a feel for you/your tastes, what five would you pick?

1. Canadian Football - I'm pretty sure that with the user name I have that this one speaks for it's self.
2. Final Fantasy 4 or 6 - I think these two are the best in the series and the only two I still play regularly today.
3. Dungeon Quest 1st edition (1985) - My dad and I used to play this game a lot. It became our one of our go to games on game night when I was growing up.
4. Banished - Found this game on Steam and have rather enjoyed it. I love empire building games and this one is one of the better ones I've played.
5. Hero Quest (Board Game) - A simplified version of Dungeons & Dragons, That focuses more on exploration and combat then free form adventure.

If you like Hero Quest, try dungeon saga by mantic games. Its sorta a modern version of it. Or try descent (fantasy) or Star wars imperial assault (sci fi)

(board games)

1. Marvel Legendary - This is a card game that captures the marvel universe pretty well. You can put your favorite heroes against that evil bad guy. Its cooperative since everyone is going against the baddie, but yet at the end of the game you can see who was the over all winner. They also have firefly, aliens, predator, but marvel is the best to me. The one knock against it is the setup and take down. But with organization it is not bad. One of my favorite games.



2. Bang! - this comes in several themes, western, walking dead, Blizzard (starcraft, warcraft etc) and halo. Played all but Halo and they are all fun. best with 7 players, 3 heroes, 3 villains and 1 traitor, all doing different goals and only 1 person is revealed and you all have to figure out who is who. I have the walking dead and bliazzard versions



3. Star wars Imperial Assault - Like hero quest or DnD lite in space but with star wars. A lot of fun. 1 person is the imperial forces (DM) and everyone else is the rebels. My base set is fully painted :)



4. Sentinels of the multiverse - Another card game where everyone fights for a common goal of beating the bad guy. Where as Legendary is a deck builder, this each hero has a set deck and generic heroes (no dead pool here people, you have Guise, no superman either you have legacy) Its a great game and everyone i introduced it to loves it.



5. Shadows of Brimstone - Another dungeon crawler but with cowboys and Cthulhu theme. Your characters actually level up, buy new gear and loot,  and there are bunches of missions. Think of a Diablo type game but in board game format. The one thing that turns people off is that you have to put the figures together. I love this game it is actually my favorite game ever. Both of my base games are painted. This one is different from Hero Quest, or Imperial Assault, everyone is on the same team, no Dungeon master, the enemy is AI controlled. Although one person could control the monsters to change the flavor a bit and get another person involved. I have introduced this game to D&D vets to board game noobs and everyone loved this game.

Really just for me, but...
Top 5 Burt Reynolds films

1 Deliverance - he always regretted doing the Cosmopolitan centerfold which he feels damaged this films chances at Oscars not to mention why he wasn't nominated
2 Smokey and the Bandit - I still get the eye roll when I mention this film, but I stand by it always. Its a great piece of entertainment and Americana and doesn't pretend to be more than it is, and at the same time, showcased some of our greatest talents.
3 The Longest Yard - Billed as a comedy but actually more of a dramedy and I take it as a personal affront when folks mention that Sandler led POS
4 Boogie Nights - he finally received a script allowing him to exhibit his acting abilities
5 Sharky's Machine - A film he directed and which famous stuntman Dar Robinson worked, executing a great gag.

And instead of starting a new thread...
5 things you probably didnt know about Burt Reynolds

1 He did a centerfold for Cosmopolitan magazine
2 He was a Hollywood stunt man which bridged into his acting career. Also where he met Hal Needham who wrote and directed Smokey and the Bandit as well as famous stuntman Dar Robinson
3 He played college football at FSU and with a promising career, blew out his knee in the first game of his sophomore year, ending his dreams
4 Roomed with Lee Corso at FSU
5 During a stunt on City Heat (1984) with Clint Eastwood, he was hit in the face with a metal chair causing him TMJ for which he acquired a deep addiction to pills and a weight loss so great, mags were reporting he had AIDS. The TMJ caused him pain the rest of his life.

Top 5 Burt Reynolds films

1 Longest Yard- Love the movie and as was mentioned above more of a dramedy than a comedy.  I on the other hand dont mind the Sandler remake, not as good but....
2 Smokey and the Bandit -  Hey we love the movies we see as kids that make an impact.  I found this movie hilarious as a kid and still do today.
3 Hooper- INMO one of the most underrated Reynolds films.  This movie is Burt at his best.
4 Canon Ball Run-  This movie is hilarious and one of those films that as a teenager I could not watch enough.
5 Best little whore house in Texas-  Only Burt Reynolds could make me like a musical.

If you have Amazon Prime Video Crewe, his final movie is on there (I think it's called "The Last Movie Star.") I haven't seen it but kiddo watched it and said it was pretty good.

I do and thanks for the reminder!

Wholeheartedly agree norm! My cousin and I were discussing the fact that his role in that film wasn't mentioned at all among his others and it should have been.
