Not Your Same Old Board Games

July 21, 2017 at 11:40 AM

If you love board games but get tired of arguments over Monopoly, and Life is getting boring, I have a few suggestions for you. If you're looking for something that isn't too complicated but has great replay value, check out Ticket to Ride. In this game, you try to build train tracks across the United States and rack up the most points. For something a little more difficult, try the cult classic Settlers of Catan, in which you harvest goods from the land to build your civilization and collect the most victory points. Along similar lines, but not quite as well known, is 7 Wonders. Each person is assigned an ancient civilization and is tasked with collecting victory points by building their civilization and completing a wonder. If you are a fan of the undead, play Zombies and try to outlast your friends in a fight with the undead. And if you prefer card based games, I suggest either Coup, in which lying is essential, or Splendor, where you trade gems to gain points. Emily Kleykamp, Teen Services  Clerk - Game Fanatic
