Board games come in all shapes, sizes, themes, genres, and fandoms. You will have heard of many and others not so much. Today, we want to share with a few games that are truly awesome, but may not be as well-known as Pictionary, Risk, Scrabble, etc. If you are a hard core board gamer, you may just have heard of them. If you haven’t, try them out and let us know how you experienced it.
- Settlers of Catan – Catan may be the one game that more people have heard of on this list. Some people love it and others hate it. We love it. IT’s awesome. The rules are simple, the strategy is real, the chances of ruining another player’s strategy are plenty, and it plays fast. It is a lot of fun and you and your friends will have fun wishing for a 8 or 6 and praying no-one builds a road where you want to go.
- Dead of Winter – This is a reader favorite. He recently sent us some pictures of him and his friends enjoying this game. The game is about surviving during the winter months in a post-apocalyptic zombie world. You have to keep resources stocked and prevent people from dying while going on a bigger quest like finding a cure or leading an army. We’ve tried it and also really enjoyed it.
- Survive: Escape from Atlantis – This is a game that has been around for many years and has a new version out. Board game enthusiasts all over are having fun with this game. You have to survive the sinking island of Atlantis. The people were bad and now they get punished. It is every guy for himself.
If you have not heard of these or tried them, go for it. If you are on the lookout for something new to play one of these will be the one you love. Or maybe even all three. We would love to hear what you liked and disliked about the games, so let us know.
