Board Game Finder is a neat website that lets you enter some games that you like, and returns a list of games it thinks you would like. I entered several games I own and really like: Concordia, Clans of Caledonia, Voyages of Marco Polo, Blood Rage, and Istanbul. The site suggested that I try Orleans (which I already know I like), Five Tribes (which I have played and liked) and a lot of others. Reading the reviews of the games on the suggestion list, I think it's on target.
