Since the WOW boardgame gets its own topic here, I might as well post about my favorite boardgame, A Game of Thrones and its expansion, A Clash of Kings.

If you haven't heard, they're based on the novels of the same name by George R. R. Martin.

They're great boardgames on their own, but even better if you've read the books and understand all the political and military intrigue going on in the backstory.

The best way to describe the game is a mix of euro style interwoven game mechanics and intricacies, along with a dash of US style wargame, and a chaser of Diplomacy.

Here's the boardgame geek entry:

That looks very interesting.  Too bad I don't have any local friends who would be interested in playing  :cry:

I love the books.  I'm halfway through Storm of Swords after a few months of off and on reading.  Martin really has a talent for telling a huge sweeping story, but making you care about indiviual characters on all sides of the conflict.
