Yehhuda - a gaming blogger (who has the kindness of linking to Gaming with Chuck) has a truly excellent article from last year that introduces Euro-Games, also known as designer games or German games.
These are the sorts of boardgames that are usually at our house (also known as the world-headquarters/secret bunker for publication of Gaming with Chuck), and frequently make an appearance at weekly meetings of ODMS.
Go. Read the article. It will remind you of all the cool things you like about Euro-Games.
