A board game for 2 geeks and their wives?

We were having dinner parties and after finishing eating playing board games. Both of our household selection is pretty slim, monopoly, apples to apples and dominos. Its been fun but we are ready for something more involved. [more inside]

How do you make board games?

I'm in this game design class at college and I can't wrap my brain around it! Curious to hear about different peoples' processes, both mental and mechanical, when it comes to making games. [more inside]

Not too serious, not too silly board games

I'm looking for some board game suggestions. The target audience would never have the patience for serious German-style strategy games like Settlers of Catan. On the other hand, party games like Cranium or Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity are too freewheeling and silly for them. What are some games that fall into that sweet spot between serious and silly? Examples could be Rapidough, Pictionary, Balderdash. I haven't played it but I think Ticket to Ride might also fit in here.

I'm looking for some good books/resources on board game design

I'm thinking more involved, euro style board games. I'm curious to read more about designing mechanics, balancing, etc. Are there any good books (or manifestos online) on this?

Good strategy games for the XBox?

I've just been lent an XBox 360 discovered that I'm utterly, embarrassingly dreadful at First (or Third) Person Shooters. What I have enjoyed beyond all expectations though is Petroglyph's splendid Panzer General: Allied Assault (I'm a big time tabletop and card gamer and own the physical game too). So, lovely hivemind, can you suggest any excellent card/war/strategy games for an XBox I might enjoy just as much? Thanks!

Really good BRE player seeking BBS with intense local matches!

What telnet-able BBS has the largest (or a large) local BRE matches with players who regularly take their turn? Not large networked matches, but large local (same board), non-network matches? The board could have networked games on a separate door install.. [more inside]

Redoing the games closet...plastic bins?

Where can I find inexpensive plastic bins that I can keep my board games in that fit the game boards and all the pieces? I've been googling for over an hour and I can't find any 16 x 11 x 2 bins anywhere other than The Container Store. Call me cheap, but I don't want to spend more for a container than I spent on the game in the first place, and at $15.00 each, the Container Store is out. Any advice or recommendations on how you've stored your board games in plastic containers would be appreciated. [more inside]

2-person board games

FollowUpFilter: This question about board games elicited some great answers. I really need a good game for two players, however. My wife is a big backgammon and scrabble fan, and I'm looking for something else that we can play together. Any ideas are welcome.
