Movies, books, and board games.
I'd guestimate that I've dropped a 2-3K dollars into my board game collection, but I absolutely love games. I rarely play with just my wife. Which is fine, because I'm glad she has her own thing. However, she does play with me if I ask. I'm not much of a solo gamer. I will play by myself rarely or if it's an ipad app, but beyond that I much prefer social, interactive games with great themes. Some of my current favs are:
Descent 1st Ed. My number one game for almost 3 years. A wonderful 3-5 hr dungeon crawl featuring 2-4 players squaring off against 1 Overlord.
Letters from Whitechapel - a hidden movement game where one player plays Jack the Ripper, the others play detectives trying to stop him.
Resistance Avalon - a team bluffing game where good guys try to outsmart bad guys who are trying to figure out who Merlin is and assassinate him.
Sentinels of the Multiverse - a 3-5 player co-operative card game where each player takes on the role of a superhero trying to defeat a supervillain. Decks are predetermined. Not a Magic-type deck building game.
Here's some photos of my collection:
