I like how an illusion that was first described in 1658 is somehow new-fangled "hologram" technology nowadays.

Er, 1584, not 1658.

We don't really need to do anything to "recapture" the fun of boardgames. We're in a golden age of board gaming right now.

Board games like those you mentioned, plus deck-building games like Ascension (and variants like the DC-comic themed game), Thunderstone, Nightfall, etc. that have some board-game type layouts. Games today are pretty bad ass.

Lots of people creamed their jeans over 3D movies despite the fact that the ancient Greeks called them "plays."

Is this now a board game thread? Good, I need some recommendations.  Aside from the classics I've had a lot of fun with ones like Railroad tycoon and to a lesser extent Catan.

Yay, board game thread!

Dominion is great and still gets a lot of play in our house. Also currenly loving Mice & Mystics, Galaxy Trucker, Libertalia and Twilight Struggle. We primarily play with two players so take that into account with my list.
Also really looking forward to Wok Star, Euphoria, The Agents and Keyflower when they arrive (Kickstarted).

Definitely check out BGG.com and reddit/boardgames if you haven't already.

Check out Core Worlds if you're a fan of deck builders.  Has taken over for Thunderstone as my favorite

If you liked Railroad Tycoon, take a look at Kings of Air & Steam.

I cleared 100 board games if I include expansions. Most recent purchase was T'Zolkin, which was fun.
