I love board games. At the Resolved weekend away just gone I played Monopoly for the first time since I came out as a socialist and I’ve got to say, my inner dodgy developer rose to the surface faster than you can say “You’ve one second prize…”
Anyway, this got me to thinking about my own collection. Though I dream of one day filling a linen cupboard with untidily stacked cardboard boxes, for the moment our collection is fairly small. It seems to be that we’ve collected some “odd” games. We’ve got LotR Risk, Anti-monopoly, Simpsons Cluedo and Bagh Chal (a Nepalese ancestor of Chess). We’ve recently been given Ticket to Ride (Zug um Zug to the purists).
But I’m wondering what games you think are indispensable for a decent games collection. What game do you want to buy next? And if you had $100 to spend on games, which couple would you buy?
Here’s 10 games on my “like” list at the moment:
What do you think?
