3.1 A friend introduced me to ___. Will I like ___?

"German" game designers shamelessly pillage mechanisms from both their own
games and others'. This results in a number of games' having a similar
feel. If you like the feel of one game, you may enjoy another that shares
the same mechanisms. Here's a sampling of games that can be considered
members of the same "family":

Settlers of Catan, Settlers of Catan: The Card Game, Settlers of
Nuremberg, Starfarers of Catan

Torres, Tikal, Java, Mexica

Tigris & Euphrates, Through the Desert, Samurai

Medici, Quandary, High Society

El Grande, Carolus Magnus

Puerto Rico, Princes of Florence, Citadels

Reibach & Co., Freight Train

Tikal, Fossil, Ra, Time Pirates

El Grande, Ra, Aladdin's Dragons

Manhattan, Big City, Acquire

Chinatown, Rette Sich Wer Kann, Bohnanza, Quo Vadis

If this approach strikes you as high-risk (and well it may, given the
price tags that these games usually carry), visit the Board Game
Recommendation System at boardgamestuff.com:8000 (yes, that's a Web
address). The BGRS takes input on which games you like and dislike,
matches your tastes with those of other registered users and provides
recommendations based on those users' opinions. The results are fairly
reliable. (Mainstream games and old-school hobby games are included in
the system as well.)
