I was so excited when I saw this post because FI’s family LOVES board games and everytime we go we spend hours playing! But we keep it traditional with trivial pursuit.

PANDEMIC! Darling Husband and I are big board gamers. We like Arkham Horror, Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Zombies, Last Night on Earth, Argicola, etc but Pandemic is the newest and my favorite.

Basically, it’s a cooperative game where you play a team of scientists trying to cure/eradicate worldwide disease. It’s pretty hard. We played several games and won a couple, lost a couple.

As for “normal” games, Life is and always will be my favorite.

I don’t know most of the new ones. But I’m a scrabble and trivial pursuit addict.

We love playing a game called SMart Ass – its kind of like trivia. I really enjoy it and it can be pretty funny at times. I also love me some Apples to Apples and Catch Phrase!!

Currently we love Ticket to Ride! We have tried some others and are looking to build up our collection (mostly eurogames).

@Keltaena: OMG CATAN!! I am always SO excited when I find someone else who knows what this game is–it’s SO fun. Definitely one of my faves.

@zippylef: We LOVE Zombies.  In fact, we have a marathon game of Zombies 4 happening on the living room floor 🙂

We love Settlers of Catan and there is a space version, called Starfarers that we like to play.  Apples to Apples is definitely one of the faves, and Fiance loves Axis and Allies, which he plans to play this summer.

They aren’t “new”, but I like:

UNO Attack

Rummicube

 

I haven’t played many of the new ones coming out.

@MaiFuture: Oh, man. We gave Ticket to Ride to FI’s mum for her birthday, and they have not. stopped. playing it!  We do board game night every week, alternating my house and FI’s parents’ house, and we always play “the train game” when we go there, it’s so fun! The other game we play frequently there is Tikal.

Games in heavy rotation here are Agricola, Carcassonne (we have several expansions for this, too, which is nice), and Forbidden Island.

Forbidden Island is a lot like Pandemic and made by the same people…we like it because you play cooperatively, versus competitively. Nice for those nights when someone is feeling overly sensitive to losing!
