Wasabi is my most played boardgame. When I ask my wife to choose a game for us to play she comes out with this or Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers.
We even used these:

Wasabi coated peanuts instead of the green wasabi cubes used in the game and the loser of the game eats all them all.

I like Wasabi peas, but shouldn't the winner get to eat them?

I'd wager you don't like crippling diseases either, but you dislike a game about fighting them.

But in neither case do the game mechanics feel much like the thing they claim to be.

Really? Second row left is why I'd be LARPing there!

@Benj The chaos of a kitchen with too many cooks seems right to me for Wasabi. Interestingly, one of the games ended on Tuesday night because I managed to complete all my recipies with about 10 spaces left on the board...

I've looked at this quite a bit. I really want to try it, seems like a fun dice filler.

That brings back some memories. 'Famous last words' was quite a meme when we played D&D.

My favorites were:
"I know I'm hit. I will only just peek around the corner!"
and
"You take the giant on the left, I'll take the dragon on the right!"

Board gamers playing video games, video gamers playing board games... either way you slice it, WE'RE ALL PLAYING BOARD GAMES!

Take a look at any other video game site and people will give you strange looks if you bring up a board game. The fact that we all play board games is either a sign of greater things to come or, more likely, a sign of our obscurity. cry

Then again, have you met those guys that play video games?

I can understand this. Despite the name, RPGs and video game RPGs don't have a lot in common (aside from the stat/characteristic/leveling aspects).

I played VivaJava (NOT IN THE SYSTEM?!?) this past Tuesday... crazy interesting. It has this mechanic in which you are joining a team every round, and your team has to determine whether or not you will blend coffee beans to create a new blend, or research coffee technology. What's fascinating is how significant your main phase choice is (selecting where to place your player token). Placing it determines what bean you get, what bonus (or loss!) you take, and what team you will be on. Interestingly, if you're in the lead you go last, which has the advantage of giving you a possibility of picking which team you're on, but you WILL take penalties (- reasearch, -victory points, less beans gained). Also, you may get stuck getting no beans, as beans are piece limited.

It's another game that has an utterly different application and combination of mechanics, and often I love that. This one is no exception!

EDIT: It was in the system, but it turns out it's one word.

It's obviously more fun to be part of the special boardgame thread on VGG than to just be another boardgamer on BGG. And possibly more awesome to be part of the video game Chit-Chat thread on BGG than just another videogamer here. The point is that it's cooler to talk about what everyone else isn't necessarily doing.

And this is why logically, you should try to date people on LinkedIn, and network to find jobs on OKCupid.

ALSO I played 3-player Innovation today. It was sort of cool to have more possible interactions going on, but I may prefer it 2-player anyway.
