I was wondering since most of us have an interest in pc, console and online games, if there was anyone who had any good board games. I have a fair collection myself so I was wondering if it was just me or if you guys had 'gaming groups' who you get together to play board games with. 

 

So feel free to mention any board games that you play.

 

The following should NOT be mentioned:

  • Monopoly
  • Cluedo
  • Trivial Pursuit
  • Game of Life
  • Chess
  • Checkers
  • Backgammon
  • Risk
  • Ludo
  • etc

The reason for this is that these games are fairly old, and have been reskinned time and time again. Yes I love the Simpsons, but that doesn't mean I'm going to buy the Simpsons Monopoly, Game of Life, Trivial Pursuit....just because it's a game that everyone has played to death and has the Simpsons brand slapped over it. 

 

 

Now that we've got that out of the way, I present to you my personal collection of board games. Expansions for said game are listed in the brackets after the name.

 

  • The Settlers of Catan
  • King of Tokyo
  • Smallworld (Great Dames, Cursed, Be Not Afraid, Necromancer Island [DIY version])
  • Smallworld Underground (Tunnels)
  • Ticket to Ride Europe (1912)
  • Ingenious
  • Pandemic (On the Brink)
  • Chaos in the Old World
  • Star Wars Epic Duels
  • Cranium
  • Dungeons and Dragons [watered down version, limited to one campaign]

I also have a couple of card games:

 

  • Citadels
  • Space Hulk Death Angel (Tyranid Expansion, Space Marine Pack 1)

I owned Munchkin and Talisman at one point but no one in my family wanted to play them so I sold and replaced them. 

 

So which games do you guys own and/or play (if any)?

I've only played Munchkin a few times, it was a ton of fun but not something I really wanna do often enough to actually buy it. Outside of that Risk and Monopoly are fun.

I don't really play any boardgames,

I do own some Heroclix which is a miniatures game but apart from that nothing...I do watch Tabletop on youtube in which Wil Wheaton and some other Celebrities play board games such as Munchkin etc.

You kinda blocked my favorite board games. :(

 

 

Blokus is pretty fun. It takes a bit of thinking and planning ahead. The idea of the game is to block others from being able to place pieces on a board. You can only place blocks that are touching diagonally. The board fills up pretty quickly.

Life, Sorry, Monopoly (at least for a bit, someone rages and we stop after 15 minutes), chess, Clue, and Trivial Pursuit. Haven't played any of them in a while though.

 

Edit: Guess Who and Connect Four (if they count), as well.

Oh and me and my brothers made up this dice game where you have three dice and throw in one at a time. you just try to get the highest total number, and you can hit the others' dice and try to change the numbers. it's pretty basic but fun.

Tabletop is a great series. Its really bringing boardgames and how fun they can be back to the stage. Most of the games I own have been featured on Tabletop at one point or another. I actually bought Munchkin, Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride because of that fact (and, obviously, they looked fun to play).

Sorry Matt. As I said it's not because I dislike them, it's just because they've been done to death already. Blokus looks nice and reminds me of another game I have called Rush Hour. Its a single player puzzle game and it's a big hit with the kids my mum teaches.   

 

This was my favorite board game when i was young, its upsetting that this is for kids cause i would totally play it again.

Lol. I'll let you off the hook with that one Durlak.

 

 

I can post pictures and mini descriptions of each of the board games I have if it would interest anyone. I'm more than happy to increase awareness of some of these awsome games.

I don't play board games that often but I always found Imagine If and Apples to Apples, if that counts, to be fun

The board game descriptions are finally done. I have provided some pictures along with the description and links to reviews and playthroughs were available. It is meant to provide a brief overview of each game, and those interested can look into it more with youtube etc. 

 

Hope it helps

Pandemic was a really good one. I played it a lot back in 2008 or 2009 with some friends at school. We were cooperative fanatics instead of competitive. I had forgotten about it until now. Thanks Serp! It brings back some memories. It strongly resembles a game I still play today called Plague Inc. However in that one, you play the role of the disease and attempt to wipe out the entire human race. It's pretty tricky. (even though I found an exploit to beat the game nearly every single time)

Pandemic looks pretty good. I have actually played a game in which you are the virus/bacteria/parasite trying to spread across the world and if you spread it everywhere you win.
