Some nice board games.

Picking 8 board games among thousands of board games around the world may seem to be a very hard task to accomplish. But if you are going to ask me, here are my choices. You may not agree on some of the games in the list but you have to admit that we share the same interest on most board games. The list includes timeless and relatively new board games, in different game genres (word, abstract, German-style, and more).

Chess
The basics of chess can be learned in a matter of days but this is the kind of game that takes years to master. But no matter how good or how bad you play this game or whether you even know how to play chess or not, your collection will never be complete without this 8×8 game board with 32 game pieces around.Chess

 

Monopoly
When someone thinks of board games, the word “monopoly” always comes first. This is not a surprise since monopoly is considered to be one of the most successful board games of all time. The real testament of its success lies in figures. Monopoly has sold more than 500 million units since it was first released at the time of the great depression.Monopoly

Scrabble
This game does not need any words for introduction. The fact that 1 out of every 3 American households has scrabble proves that the game is a masterpiece in all rights. Scrabble, without a doubt, deserves its place in my list.scrabble

Settlers of Catan
The success of Settlers of Catan lies directly on its game design. Played on random board layouts that ensure that every game is different, Settlers of Catan is a multi-faceted game that requires both skill and luck. If building infrastructures and creating civilization are what you like, you have to give this game a try.settelers of catan

Chutes and Ladders
I’m maybe way too old to play this game but Chutes and Ladders has to be on my list. Why? It is fun and brings a lot of memories from my childhood. Chutes and ladders

Tigris and Euphrates
I don’t know about you but if someone speaks of strategic and tactical board game, this has to be on the top of my list. Set between two clashing dynasties at the dawn of civilization, Tigris and Euphrates is a game that builds skills on managing trade, agriculture, government and religion evenly to become the victor. The game has won first prize in the 1998 Deutscher Spiele Preis. But even then, this game is already a winner for me.Tigris And Euphrates

Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is set during the age of the Caribbean ascendancy. The primary aim of the game is to accumulate points by building infrastructures or shipping products (such as corn, sugar, coffee, etc.) to the Old World. Economic management is the key to this game while assuming various roles (settler, builder, mayor, craftsman, etc.) in every round.puerto Rico

Zingo
Once in a while, I want to play light board games like Zingo. This is very similar to bingo which can be played even if your opponents have not yet learned reading and writing.Zingo
