I just love love love playing board games. Seriously, I can spend an entire day just playing and not notice the time passing by. It’s addicting and fun. And I just love board games make you think and strategize. But not all board games are well, fun. Here are my favorite board games that you can play with 3 players and above!

1. Settlers of Catan

If you like Civilization by Sid Meiers, this is the game for you. It’s like a simplified version of that but as a board game. It’s a versus resource game that uses luck and a lot of strategy to win. Basically, fastest civilization to get to 10 points win.

2. Sheriff of Nottingham

This is a fun fun FUN game, if you’re good at lying. It’s a bluff game that needs your Poker Face and BS skill level 999. You’re a merchant that has the option to add illegal goods into the market (that sells for a loooot of gold) and you need the sheriff to let the goods in. Players take turns being the sheriff. Game is over when everyone plays the Sheriff thrice, winner is the person with most gold.

3. Splendor

In Splendor, you’re a jeweler who wants to be the richest in the land. This board game is another resource management game. Player who gets 15 points first wins. A game of luck and a lot of strategy again. I super duper love this game because of its chips (as in poker chips) because it feels a lot like poker chips. Heavy and solid, and not plastic and flimsy.

4. Ticket to Ride

Now this. This board game is a headache inducing board game especially if you’re playing this for the first time. The goal of this game is to make a train track from place to place, depending on a card you pick. It’s headache inducing becaus eof the many lines you can make and the possible options you need. This strategy game

5. Hanabi

Hanabi is a coop game. I’ve very rarely played cooperation games and this is challenging. It’s addictingly fun, but really challenging. For someone who is used to competing against other players in games, I can say this is a breath of freshness. The mechanics is simple and easy to understand

Numbers 2, 3, and 5 aren’t technically board games because they don’t have boards, but they are games that can be usually found in the board game section of the toy store and in board game cafes. they’re still categorized as board games so let’s let it slip that they’re actually technically card games.

What about you? Any favorite board games to play?
