Yesterday I wrote about some of the great new board games that will be available soon. However one of my favourite things about the hobby is that good games stay relevant for years. So what board games do you love and keep going back to?
I'll pretty much never turn down a chance to play 7 Wonders, Antoine Bauza's brilliant civilisation building drafting game. There's something about drafting cards that speaks to me. Making decisions about what's best for you now, what's possibly going to pay off in the future and what the next player may do with the cards you pass them.
I'm a sucker for interesting decision making and 7 Wonders has it in spades.
Then there's Village, the quaint mid-weight worker-placement game. Another game with a strong focus on making interesting decisions, Village has you working your family members to death while you earn prestige around the village. One of the expansions lets you send family members off to the pub and drink themselves to death.
Some games let story naturally develop as you play them. Village's stories lean heavily towards black comedy.
What about you? What board games do you love to bring to the table?
