Some Of The Rarest Board Games On Earth

Like video games and comics, there’s a weirdness to what makes a board game valuable. Sometimes it’s quality! Sometimes it’s scarcity. Sometimes it’s simply, well, weirdness.

One Way Of Passing Time Until Fallout 4's Release

Dayshot: As Redditor KongoBoom discovered, one way of passing time until Fallout 4’s release is designing a New Vegas Monopoly board.

A Board Game's Idea Of The Moon Landing, 14 Years Before It Happened

The oldest toy I own is a board game called Careers. It’s set 14 years before Apollo 11 landed on the moon in 1969, yet it includes a moon expedition mission.

Not all of us have the opportunity to build our own gaming rooms and your idea of the perfect entertainment haven is likely different to mine. But a gaming room doesn’t have to be filled with TVs and consoles, no, before the Xbox was a thing, gaming rooms were stacked with miniatures, paint brushes and bottles of flocking. Girls and guys, feast your eyes on Helge’s “Wargaming Room” and let the tears of envy flow freely.

Outside of work hours (or work assignments), I’m finding myself playing as many board games as I am video games these days. I’d long assumed the reasons for this was the obvious: that sitting around a table, beer in hand, was an infinitely more social experience than sitting on my couch shouting at strangers (if I was talking to anyone at all).
