3 best board games to watch out for on Cyber Monday
Choo! Choo! It’s time to go on a great rail adventure! But don’t worry, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home for this trip. Ticket to Ride is easy to pick up and fun for the whole family. The aim of the game is to collect various types of train cars in order to claim railway routes across the country - or continent. The original edition is set in North America, but there are other versions set in different world regions to choose from.
The game's tension comes when you have to decide whether to expand your rail empire or add more train cars to your collection - while you’re building your collection, your competitor may be claiming all the most valuable routes. Ticket to Ride may be simple but it packs in hours of fun.
Can I trade wood for sheep, please? Catan (officially called Settlers of Catan) is one of the very best board games of all time, and it adorns millions of tabletop collections across the world. It’s simple to get your head around - you want as many resources as possible to build as much as you can, and therefore score points - plus it’s somehow highly tactical at the same time as you rush to claim resources before the other players.
If you’re looking for a stepping stone game between a more traditional board game like Monopoly or Cluedo to something a bit more specialist, Catan is that perfect transition.
A drawback of Dungeons & Dragons can be that you always need a Dungeon Master – or more generically a Game Master – who controls every NPC and the world the players interact with. If you don’t have someone in your group who wants to take on this task, you can’t play. Gloomhaven takes that control for itself and frees you and your friends up to be the players in the game's fantasy world full of classic dungeon crawl experiences.
In this there are compromises, Gloomhaven is only playable for one to four people and your choice of actions is limited to what the game can account for – it’s also pretty pricey to boot (though Black Friday discounts can soften that blow) – but if you want to get the Dungeons & Dragons experience without a DM, it’s one of the better ways to achieve that.
