Board games are making a comeback. They cater to our need for adventure by placing us into a new world where the focus isn’t on daily house chores, work projects, or homework. Every adventure is different and experiencing those adventures together with someone else can be a thrilling experience.
While the video game world may be thriving, (as we move into yet another generation of console gaming), board games are keeping stride, offering us a variety of ways to experience an adventure solo or with our families at home! Try out one of these popular board games from our collection and see what all the hype is about!
In Isle of Skye , 2-5 players are the chieftains of 5 famous clans. The players try to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible. But in each game only 4 of the 16 scoring cards will be scored. Each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies. This is a tile placement strategy game.
A classic when it comes to board games, Ticket to Ride is a cross-country adventure train game. Players collect train cards that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. With additional challenges and ways to earn extra points, you won’t be able to lose!
What do you get when you combine the #1 party game with the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Code Marvel. This edition combines the hit social word game with the Marvel Universe including Spider Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers and Doctor Strange. Opposing teams, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, compete to be the first to identify all of their teams ‘field agents’ from 25 code cards displayed in a 5 x 5 grid. A must-have for Marvel fans of all ages.
Fortnite Fans, this take on a classic game is for you and your family. Monopoly: Fortnite is not a game about what you own, but about surviving. In this edition, 2 to 7 players claim locations, battle their opponents, and avoid the Storm to survive; the last player standing wins.
