We don't want playing time to be too short but we also don't want it to be too long. So maybe something that takes around 45 minutes or an hour? I know there are a bunch of other topics like this but they are still overwhelming to me. So is boardgamegeek. We're kinda geeky but not too geeky. But we're open to being really geeky if the game is intelligent and fun enough.
I've enjoyed Stratego quite a bit, but that's about my only experience with board games minus games from when I was really young. My boyfriend likes Scrabble and chess. So I guess we're looking for a strategy game to introduce us more to the world of board games that is fun and intelligent, while not being overwhelming. A lot of the games I saw seemed overwhelmingly geeky/intense and I don't know how fun they would be. Like that Twilight game. But this is just what it looks like, I haven't played it.
Also we would like to keep it below 30 dollars if possible. And all these rules can be bent in the case of an exceptionally good game.
Thanks for any help! I feel overwhelmed. We just want a good introductory game.
