Top 3 Games - Karyn
What are your top three board games? It seems like a simple question but when you actually have to commit to writing it down & publish it that's a whole other story! I have gone with the three games that I would choose for a game night right now.
Ticket to Ride: My first Modern BoardGame love! When my husband and I first started exploring the hobby we headed to Toronto to a board game cafe to try some games before we committed to them. Ticket to Ride was the first game we chose as we had heard so much about it. We LOVED it. The simplicity mixed with some strategic planning, also the player interaction sucked us right in. We bought Ticket to Ride shortly after that trip & it truly started us on our journey of board gaming. This has become a staple at our table for the ease of teaching new players & enjoyment for all player ages.
Terraforming Mars: This game has been apart of our collection for a couple years, but this Summer I have discovered a new love for this game. I always saw this game as a super heavy strategy game, until I started seeing others share their plays of it on Instagram. Everyone was saying it had a two hour playtime. I thought this couldn't be right, it's a full day game! Boy was I wrong, we have played a game during naptime! Terraforming Mars gives me the heavy game feeling without the playtime to go with it.
DiceForge: This is one of our newer games in our collection, but is our most played game this year. It is a different type of dice rolling game. Yes, you still roll your dice each turn but the dice are forged by you to fit your own personal play style. The customization of the dice adds a layer of strategy that I really enjoy. The simple game mechanics & quick play time make this one of my go to games right now.
