comment What is this game with multiplying aliens and random weapons?
I happen to know of its existence because it has been on my 'must try sometime' list for quite some time now. Never played it, but it looks and sounds like a blast!

comment What games are similar to Risk?
Base mechanics, like 'roll to hit' and Victory Points allready make it al very different beast. But I agree that more people should play this game.

comment Other “network building” style games, like Hackers and Illuminati?
Okay, it's just that the gameplay of american styled games (which theses SJgames are) is so very different from classic eurogames (like Carcassonne), that it would not be a good comparison. What i'm saying is that in Carcassonne, laying down the Tiles 'is' the game, whereas in Hacker-Illuminati you get to do a lot more fun stuff to/with the cards after placement.

Carcassonne is absolutely nothing like these games. Carcassonne lets you lay down tiles, collect points and that's it (maybe expansions push this mechanic a little to the back). These games are much much deeper than that, with laying down cards/expanding the structure or network being only a part of the game mechanics.

Once you get into the order and mindset of how to resolve turns, Axis and Allies isn't that complex. Although not a perfectly balanced game, it really is a lot of fun when playing with 3 or more players.
