Against the Darkness Strategy Board Game by Dyskami

Warband: Against the Darkness plays in 60-90 minutes and is suitable for 2-5 players, ages 10+. It is balanced in the design space between Euro and Ameri-style gameplay, combining strategic depth with an evocative fantasy theme and tense player conflict. The units of all the players may be part of the same warband and share leadership on the battlefield, but gameplay is not co-operative in any way. Several engaging play mechanics – including area control, set collecting, action selection, and abstracted combat – are combined in a unique way to create a tabletop experience that'll keep your gaming group coming back for more!

Boulder board game group

by some_call_me_tim

I'm trying to get a group together to play strategy games like Puerto Rico, San Juan, Settler's of Catan, and other similar games on a semi-regular basis. Those are some of my favorites, but I also love learning new games, so feel free to suggest others!
If you're interested, send me an email at:
tim-bgg [at sign] bitgems [dot] com
...and I'll add you to a mailing list (privately managed list: NO ads, not web-searchable, you can easily unsubscribe) so that we can discuss meeting times etc. as a group.
I'd be able to host the games in north Boulder near Broadway, since I have free access to a huge, clean space with lots of tables, chairs, and good lighting--I just have to reserve the space in advance.

Need a good strategy board game beyond RISK and Stratego?

He's an economics major so if it includes some aspect of that, even better! They would like a game beyond the Risk and Stratego games. Any ideas?

Check out Settlers of Catan. I'd guess it's 75% strategy, 25% luck.
The island of Catan has just been discovered. You and your opponents are attempting to settle the island by building settlements, roads, and cities. You select locations based on the resources they offer and the probability of rolling the number to obtain those resources. There are several different strategies, the board position changes with every game. My son turned me on to it, and after only a few games I'm hooked.
