In the age of digital entertainment, it’s easy to forget that there are still plenty of people who enjoy playing board games. In fact, a lot of people find board games more fun than video games because they’re interactive and social. Boardgame enthusiasts can be found all over the world; in big cities like New York City and Tokyo, in small towns like Boswell, Oklahoma, and even in countries like India!
Why is Playing Board Games a Good Hobby?
So if you’ve been looking for something new to do with your friends or family members this winter break (or any time really), why not try one of these great board games? You’ll have a blast!
Word on the street is that Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit are super fun, but if you’re looking for something a little more nostalgic then check out Operation or Hungry Hungry Hippos.
If those games aren’t your speed, you may enjoy Monopoly (if you can get past the fact that not everyone likes it as much as you do), Risk or Apples to Apples. And don’t forget about card games like UNO! If none of these suit your fancy, there are plenty of other board games available—just head over to your local toy store and pick up one called Mice & Mystics. According to some fans, it’s especially good for groups with kids!
The best part about board games is that there’s a game play for everyone! Whether you like to solve puzzles, make friends or just kill some time, this list has got the right board game for you. With Christmas fast approaching, what better way to spend your holiday than playing one of these fine board games?
How to Choose Your First Board Game
Choosing a board game can be overwhelming because there are so many to choose from! A good place to start is by asking your friends and family what games they like.
You could also ask the local toy store’s staff what kind of games beginners prefer. If you’re not sure about what type of game to play, you might want one that has multiple play modes or “modes.”
For example, when I’m in the mood for something fast-paced, I’ll usually pick up Settlers of Catan. On days where I don’t feel like thinking too hard, I’ll play my favorite Crazy Eights card game! And of course, don’t forget about your favorite classic games like Monopoly and Sorry!
If you’re still not sure which board game to choose, don’t forget that local toy stores are a great place to start. All the employees there are specially trained to help you find the perfect board game based on what kind of person you are and your general interests. For the best result, be as specific as possible about what you’re looking for!
These board games are just the tip of the iceberg—there’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored. You could even start your own board game club or play with your friends online.
