Villainous!

Being a Disney fan is a bit of a prerequisite, but Disney aside Villainous is one of the most creative and cleverly balanced games I’ve ever played.

It’s fun being evil.

Just got the new expansion last weekend, there are a lot of villains now!

Board gamer here! My fiancee and I love Eldritch Horror, Spirit Island, Nemo’s War, Legendary Alien, Innovation, Glory to Rome, Mansions of Madness, Robinson Crusoe, and some I’m forgetting.

How about you?

Just read about it. Seems interesting, might look at a youtube video to see gameplay.

I wish that the Hero Quest reboot that Hasbro did recently was a better product. That game was SICK as a kid. Anybody ever play it?

My favorites board game is still Scrabble, but I’m also a big fan of Resistance: Avalon and Small World. I’ve also played a ton of King of Tokyo, as my then 4 year old was really into it.

Chess & Backgammon

Edit:
I have been buying and selling high-end backgammon sets for years (mostly ebay). The prices for bakelite/catalin backgammon sets/checkers are just INSANE.

Same for chess. High-end Chess, however, has not enjoyed the same appreciation in value as backgammon. Not sure why.

I love Scrabble. I do, however, detest playing people that use words that I literally, have never heard of.
… Just not fair.

I love Carrom! Which form of Carrom do you like to play (Indian or American)?

Chess, Risk, Stratego, Settlers of Catan. I don’t play any board games regularly though.

I helped setup a bonsai display at a masters match between the #1 and #2 shogi players in japan. I learned a lot about the game and was suprised how long 1 match can take… i will stick to chess

We have a lot of smaller games that seem to get the most table time like Point Salad, For Sale, and No Thanks. As of late though Photosynthesis has been the go to
