What is Your Favorite Board Game?

What is your favorite board game?

So this week has got me thinking, I’ve done a few reviews on games I’ve done so far, but I haven’t heard very much, just yet, on what games you like to play. So I’m going to ask the question:

What is your favorite board game?

It can be a board or card game, we’re not too picky here. We just want to take some time to see what game(s) have had enough influence on your life to be deemed as your favorite, and we’d love to know why.

Can’t think of one just yet? Let me be the first to start things off.

Things like favorites and preferences change all the time, we’re human, that’s how things work, but one game that I’ve found to be my favorite (at the moment) is a game called the Red Dragon Inn (which shouldn’t come as a surprise if you’ve read my Top 10 page).

So go right ahead. Comment below and tell us about your favorite board or card game and why.

    The game I like the most is Werewolf. It can be played anywhere, I’ve played it at campout and parties. It can be played by as few as eight and as many as 50 people. It’s fun clean way to bring friends and family together. You get to lie to and about, scream at and betray said friends and family. Oh yeah and Ethan’s the werewolf.

  2. If we take a look at most simple board games..
    ..lately, Scrabble has become one of my favorite board games that I’ve played with friends.

    It’s fun word-guessing game, you get to laugh a lot after you’ve created some odd-sounding/looking word.. OR if someone else tries to do it, & even more so if they fail to do it in correct way.

    It requires plenty of logical thinking meanwhile it’s not overwhelmingly difficult.
    A way to spend your time!
    It can get particularly interesting if you’re a linguist or tranlator

  3. Hi there! My favorite game is Cranium. This is always a fun game for game-nights or just hanging out and playing with the family. The reason I love it so much is because there’s something for everyone! The artist, the trivia guru, the musician, the wordsmith, EVERYONE! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the game, as it’s my go-to when hanging out with friends and family 🙂

    • Thanks, Ashley, I’ll keep that one in mind as I look for games to review. I’m always glad to see people who keep family/friend game nights alive.

  4. Oh man! I love all boardgames! If I was stranded on a desert island and could only bring one I think I would definitely take Settlers of Catan. Favourite!! Although, in saying that I love Pictionary because you can’t help but laugh!! Also, you really don’t need the ‘board’ as such. There heaps of word generators online and all you need is a pen and paper 🙂

    • Catan is for sure a lot of fun. I’ve only played it once, but I loved it from the start.
      I would agree that Pictionary is a lot of fun. If you like that, you would probably enjoy Telestrations as well (check it out on the Top 10 page if you’d like).
      Thanks for sharing Katie =)

  5. My husband and I love board games, and as we have two little kids, we are often home together in the evenings with just the two of us… so board games for two (or ones that you can adapt for two or have versions specifically for two) are ones we’ve been playing lately. Favorites for us are: Dominion, Ticket To Ride, Small World, and Seven Wonders!

  6. Hi,

    I am currently in love with Abalone game. It is awesome, forcing you to think like with chess and still very funny. If I could name a second it would be an old Czech card game called Marias (“mariáš” in czech). I love those 2 games for one main reason: there is limited “You had a luck to have better cards than me” factor.

    • I remember Abalone now that you mention it and it really is a fun game. I’d forgotten about it until you mentioned it. Never heard of Marias before, but I’d love to check it out.

      Thanks so much for sharing and I hope games continue to be a fun part of your life.
