Monopoly Deal is a game I have over 100 plays of.  Unfortunately, about half of those games I played incorrectly.  I was incorrectly taught that each card could not be of the same type. i.e. playing three properties, or playing 3 actions, etc.   We had fun nonetheless.  #boardgames #monopolydeal T Play, Monopoly, Puns, Card Games, Have Fun, Playing Cards, Teaching, Type, Board

Five old friends meet in a private club. All of them well-traveled and from different corners of the world. Inspired by Phileas Fogg, the group decided to commemorate his navigation around the world by betting on their own excursions. Each excursion getting more difficult every year. Finally, they reach their most challenging excursion yet. In 7 days they compete for $1 Million. The winner decided by the person that travels to the most cities across North America by rail. #tickettoride #bgg Most Popular Boards, Review Board, Ticket To Ride, Board Games, All About Time, Private Club, North America, Cities, Meet

You have purchased a few board games and now you want to start introducing this great hobby to your kids, nephews, and/or nieces. Here are some of the board games for 8 year olds that I used to introduce my nephew to the board gaming world when he was 8. Granted he sits on his PC playing games all day, but there are those occasions where he will ask to play a board game. He enjoyed playing these games, and I believe they are great choices. #boardgames Playing Games, Games To Play, Great Hobbies, 8 Year Olds, Board Games, Choices, Gaming, Popular, Kids

I have something to confess. I have never played this game with my nephew, but it will be a hit with kids, I can just tell. You flick discs on a board, what’s not to like?  You each have 12 discs and take turns flicking them onto the board. The disc must land in the innermost circle (15 points) if the board is empty. #boardgames #crokinole Crokinole Board, Board Games, Boards, Great Hobbies, 8 Year Olds, Games To Play, Woodwork, Empty, Alice

I first played this with my nephew when he was 8 and he loved it. It is a really a simple kids game, and can be played with ages 4 and up. It can also be turned into a fun game to wrap up an adult board gaming session. I have used it many times in that kind of scenario and it has always gone down well.  You are trying to protect your chickens from Louie’s acrobatics. Odd concept but it works and is a blast to play. #boardgames #loopinlouie Fun Games, Games For Kids, Great Hobbies, 8 Year Olds, Board Games, Gaming, Boards, Concept, Times

Blokus is a great game for introducing to 8 year olds in my opinion. The rules and scoring are quick and simple to teach, but the game can be tough to master, similar to chess. I recommend playing this with 4 people. This is a great one to teach if your kid is having friends over.  You pronounce the game as “Block Us”, and play with color-coded Tetris-shaped pieces. Players place these pieces on the board trying to block their opponents’ best plays. #boardgames #blokus Great Hobbies, 8 Year Olds, Strategy Games, Chess, Plays, Board Games, Boards, Coding, Teaching

Jaipur was introduced to me by a friend of mine and it instantly blew my mind. So much so that I kept his copy for years before finally having to give it back and purchase my own copy.  It is so simple to teach. The box might say ages 12+ but in my opinion it is just fine for 8 years and up. The boardgamegeek community also agrees with me on this one.  I taught it to my nephew and we were playing within 5 minutes. #boardgames #Jaipur Great Hobbies, 8 Year Olds, Colour Schemes, Jaipur, Board Games, Boards, Community, Baseball Cards, Play

I know you might be thinking that I just wrote about boosting your social life and getting away from single player PC games. However, if you are anything like me you have decided that you want to see if there are good single player board games. Why? Because you just love the touch of the cardboard between your fingers, and all your friends have gone missing for the evening. #games #boardgames Pc Games, Board Games, Single Player, Fingers, You Got This, Decorative Boxes, Boards, How To Get, Touch

I am realizing how difficult single player board games are as I write this article. This is a tough game, so prepare yourself. It is also rewarding if you put in the time and effort. This one can be played with more players but I highly recommend it at the one player count. It is out of print and final fantasy does not own the license anymore. Don’t fret though as you can head over to noble knight games to pick up a near mint or excellent copy. #games #boardgames Noble Knight, Knight Games, Single Player, Angel Of Death, The Grim, Final Fantasy, Card Games, Effort, You Got This

This is a solo deck-building card game I have played a lot of. I haven’t won many of those games, but I have had fun during every play-through. I even own the iOS version for this one.  You play as Friday trying to train Robinson Crusoe to get off the island he has been deserted on. Each turn you draw 2 hazard cards of which one you must fight. You resolve the fight either by losing life points or defeating the hazard and adding that card to your fighting deck. #games #boardgames Robinson Crusoe, Single Player, Building A Deck, You Draw, Card Games, Ios, Have Fun, Friday, How To Get

I know stone age might be the odd one out on this list. I just had to put it on though. This is the quintessential worker placement board game that I think all board game players should own. You place workers, make babies, roll dice, collect resources, and so much more. It even comes with a funky “leather” cup. I remember the first edition cups had a weird aroma to them. I am not sure if that is the case anymore. Pick this one up now. I promise you will not regret it.  On a side note...

Magic the Gathering has been a passion of mine since the age of 12. My brother introduced me to the game, and I fell in love with it straight away. Magic was all I knew before board games came into my life, so obviously I looked into games that would be similar, but not as costly.  Dominion, the big daddy of deck-builders took the board gaming world by storm when it first released. All the cards you needed were in the box. There were no blind booster packs. Two (my recommendation) to four... Most Popular Boards, Deck Builders, Games To Buy, Brand Inspiration, Big Daddy, Magic The Gathering, Box Art, I Fall In Love, Blind

Carcassonne is an interesting one on this list for me. It had its time and place on the table and it is still in my collection to this day. It does not hit the table as often, but it is still a game I recommend to new people in the hobby. Why is that? Once again the simple rule-set and ease of introducing to new people. You pick and place a tile, decide to add a meeple, and score accordingly. The meeple can be a thief (highwayman), knight, monk, or farmer. The farmer concept and scoring...

I said Catan was a hit for family members, but the rules were still slightly lengthy and complex for a person with zero gaming experience. Enter Ticket To Ride Europe. Now don’t get me wrong, Ticket To Ride Europe is more complex than the original Ticket To Ride. So if you want the simplest version, pick up Ticket To Ride or Ticket To Ride – Play With Alexa.
