I started playing Settlers of Catan and wanted to start getting into other strategy games. Anyone recommend any games similar to this?

I did pick up one game off Amazon in Citadels, has anyone here played Citadels?

Avalon hill anything if you can find it. Kingmaker is one of the best, Third Reich and for less war oriented Rail Baron..If you are in Columbus, look up the Columbus Area Board Gaming Society (yes thats a thing).

Hasbro bought Avalon Hill and promptly bulldozed a bunch of titles, but I have seen some reintroduction. Still you can find decent titles on ebay and craigs list.. There used to be a magazine called the general, which had articles about rules changes to make the games more fun/playable. You need about three other guys to really make the best of it.

it is considered nerd herd activity, But I know four senior executives at major companies who are all closet AH fans..

My brother is pretty big into games. Pandemic is probably the most fun one I've played.

Evo is really cool. I've also played quite a bit of Munchkin.

My favorite board game of all time is Risk 2212 AD. Simply fantastic.

Love games. Many of my favorites require 3 to play, so it's tough when it's usually just me and my wife. Anyway, my favorites include Pandemic, Acquire. Also love Settlers of Catan, Thebes, Carcassonne, Las Vegas, Freedom. Really enjoy others as well, there's tons of great titles out right now. Party games that are very fun include Cards Against Humanity, Say Anything. Would 2nd the site boardgamegeek, also Dice Tower has good video reviews and top 10 lists.
