Was always a big fan of HeroQuest - I backed the revival on Hasbro Pulse last year. Very excited to get the set in November, if all goes to schedule.

HeroQuest is great and I'm very thankful for the revival, however (as far as I know) there won't be an adaptation for European users, at least here in Italy. I don't want to give my money to scalpers either, so unfortunately I'll either have to pass or just play it on Tabletop Simulator  :(

i sold my heroquest around 2000 on ebay for like 80 bucks.
bad idea, not only because it's worth much more now, but because i should have just kept it.
my favorite is arkham horror.

In no particular order: Puerto Rico, Power Grid, Agricola, 7 Wonders, Age of Empires III

I haven't played any of your top 5, Memox. :D I've played Mage Knight once and it seemed interesting but my friends didn't like it.

Cyclades, Dix It, Game of Thrones: Board Game, Caverna, CATAN, 7 Wonders, 7 Wonders Duel, King of Tokyo, Chess, Ticket to Ride, Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Zombicide and maybe others that I forgot now. I also enjoyed playing Terra Mystika the only time I played.

I also like the scheme Board Game, specially sbs maps + schemes, Gnork maps + schemes too, and some others I don't remember the nickname.

I like Board Game wormy adaptations too, also called "Table Game" schemes. One of my favourites is Worms Chess by sbs. But there are many, like 4 in a row, 5 in a row, Ludo, Quoridor, etc.

Do you want to know different and creative schemes around Worms community? Check Scheme ideas.

See all my maps on my WMDB profile.

My nickname has to do with my time records of the hardest rank to get after the credits of Metal Gear Solid 3.

I used to play WWP online before playing WA online.

Zavvi will be selling the set in the UK, and presumably they'll also be selling to Europe (they offer pretty decent shipping, as I recall).

Timeless classic. Not that I like to rub salt in the wounds but... I'll just limit myself to say "Ouch"  :-X

Gloomhaven is my new addiction and as weird as it may sound, it's wonderful both in single player and in multiplayer. At first look the price is steep, but considering a campaign can last from 100 to 200 hours (not counting unofficial scenarios, random scenarios and side scenarios), I would say it's well worth it. The dungeon crawling, the gamebook feel, the deck building and many more RPG mechanics are truly well done.

Touché

Neat! I've never heard of Worms Chess, it seems like I really need to try it.
