Let’s Talk | Favorite Board Games

Hello and welcome to a little post where I am going to talk about a few of my favorite board games. I know this year I have played more than I have in a long time with everything going on in the world. It has been a fun to escape back to a few of the games of my childhood, but also a few new ones as well. So, without furhter delay here are few of my favorite board games!

Clue

This one is a childhood favorite, I loved playing detective to try and figure out who the murder was, which room, and if it was with the candlestick. Even though I have easily played this game nearly 100 times, it is still a blast because the outcomes are always randomized. I always loved being Professor Plum when I play this game. Also, a nice bonus is the 1985 Clue movie.

Scrabble

Next we have another game I have played for YEARS with my family. I used to play every week with my Grandma and Mother. We don’t play that often anymore, but we still enjoy it. While this game can be really frustrating it is fun to try and convince people of words that don’t exist and also using words newly added to the dictionary that confuses everyone else because they think it is made up.

Explding Kittens

While the name is horrendous no actual kittens are exploding. This fun card based game with a huge sense of humor. It features a few catermelons, beard cat, potatocat and other funny twists on the word. It is described as a card game version of Russian Roulette where you hope you don’t get the Exploding Kitten card. All the other cards are used to help make other people draw more cards and such. It turns into a fun mess pretty quickly.

Gloom Second Edition

Now, this is a very interesting game I picked up when I went on vacation to Gettysburg last December, which feels like a lifetime ago. My Boyfriend and I picked up this card game in a game store and played it while we stayed in town. The point of the game is you control a very weird family your goal is to make your family suffer the most before they pass away. The other player tries to keep your number down while you try and make it the highest. These cards are really cool because they are transparent so when you stack them you actually can see the changes in the numbers. I think this is my favorite game of 2020.

The Oregon Trail Board Game

This is a funny classic of the old PC game. If you know the original you know what this game is like. Work together, but don’t get dysentery! The people you are playing with and yourself build a trail that gives you challenges and can lead you with living, loosing supplies, or dying. It gives quite a few nods to the original with the artwork as well as phrases like “press the space bar” on the cards.

  1. I can’t even remember the last time I played a board game. Me and my husband will sometimes play card games when the power goes out and we need something to pass the time but that’s it. I remember playing The Oregon Trail game on my computer when I was a kid.
