Advice Wanted: What Is Your Favourite Board Game?
BOARD GAMERS ASSEMBLE!!
What’s this? Two posts on a day when there is usually only one every other day? What craziness is this? What witchcraft is at work?
Well, dear reader, this is me asking you for your help. As you may or may not know, the UK Games Expo is coming up in just under two weeks time. Every year myself and my gaming group attend all three days, and this year is no different.
Each year, myself and my girlfriend end up doing research beforehand to generate a list of games we want to test and potentially buy. We don’t buy or test everything on the list, but it gives us a starting point for where to begin. We also end up buying a lot of games off the list, swap games in and out (etc.), as well as do our traditional “£10 challenge”, but more about that in a later post.
Over the past year, I have recommended a lot of games on this blog. I have also bought a lot of games to write about. This is where you, dear reader, can help influence the future of this blog by recommending me games that you love because, ultimately, I write about the games we own. So, here is the question:
What is your favourite game, and why?
Of course, I have to give you some context. We have started generating draft lists of games we want to look at. These are currently in three piles – Beth (my girlfriend), Paul (my Dad) and me.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Cooperative Board Game
This War of Mine
Walking Dead: All Out War
Battle for Rokugan
Fallout the Board Game
This is the very first draft of the list, so please feel free to comment. If you recommend any specific game on the list, or really think we should stay away from a game in particular, then please let me know.
I can’t promise we will buy every game you recommend (I mean, we do have a limited budget after all), but we will research every game on BGG/Youtube to see if it will be a good fit for us.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations –
