I am a bit of a board game nut, so I wanted to start a thread discussing some of my favorites. I want to know what you play, and why - the more games I get to try out, the happier I am! My shelves downstairs in the game room are starting to get a little crowded, haha. Some of my top favorites are: Victorian Masterminds, DC Deck Builder, Takenoko, Splendor, Azul, Century...the list could go on for pages, but I'll truncate it there. What are YOU playing?

What's your favorite film in the MCU? Favorite character? Personally, I love the majority of them and it makes it difficult to pick just one. As excited as I am to see Endgame and the conclusion of 10 years of films, I also hate goodbyes, lol. I've grown attached to the characters and the actors who have played them. I think, as a film, Winter Soldier may be the best put together. But from a pure action and enjoyment standpoint, I really love The Avengers.
