I love boardgames... ALOT! One of my favourite ways to spend an evening is with good company, a nice meal, yummy dessert and some friendly gaming :)
The options are endless but I thought I would share a few favourites with you.
Family Friendly Fun: Ticket to Ride
Ages: 8 and up
An oldie but a goodie and one we often come back to at the end of the evening. There are many different maps and variations available, along with an online version and apps for your smart-device! It's quick and easy to play (30mins or so) and can be super competitive or very friendly - depending on who you play with! It was our introduction to Euro boardgames and we have never looked back.
Something with Serious Strategy: Agricola
Possibly one of my favourite all time games - I could probably play it most days. A game with a lot of "thrill of the chase" as you are always thinking about how to get ahead : ) It is not for the fainthearted though and has a big set-up, rule book and takes about 2 hours to play - but it is definitely worth it!
Light and Fluffy: Dixit
Players: 3-6 (or up to 12 with Dixit: Odyssey)
This is very much a light and fun family game that is imaginative and provides a lot of laughs. We will often play it over holidays or when there are a few extra people about. Play time varies depending on just how many people play but it's a relatively short game.
Perhaps I'll try to review a game or two on a weekly basis as I found it almost impossible to stop at those 3... There are so many great games that offer different things for different tastes, groups, level of interaction, brain engagement, etc etc...
What do you like to do during these wintry nights? Would love to hear what you get up to and if you have any favourite boardgames!
Happy Humpday : )
