Board game suggestions


#1

howdy all,
i did this thread last year but never did end up purchasing any.
So what’s a good board game, nothing to penoidy (with apologies to Epimer)?


#2

Who’s it for, what else have they played?


#3

5 Second Rule


#4

something along the lines of a monopoly/game of life/hotel type thing


#5

think you recommeded one last year that a lot of folk agreed with


#6

Recently been playing Crocodile Dentist and Pop-up Pirate.

Will be gifting Kerplunk and one about balancing penguins at chrimbs.

He’s more of a card carrying penoid… LITERALLY!


#9

Thank Christ, the anticipation was killing me.


#10

Lots of people like Ticket To Ride.

(I think it’s shite)


#11

Ticket To Ride is a great entry to penoidism


#12

I do reserve the right to use it again and am willing to rent it out to others (for a fee).


#13

yeah that rings a bell.
how come it’s shite?


#14

It’s just me being a penoid. It’s bland and not very strategic. Thousands and thousands of modern board games to choose from and people choose beige.

But that’s not a very popular opinion.


#15

I quite like Ticket To Ride, but it’s a bit of a stinker with just two people after a couple of goes.


#16

kinda looking for something relatively straight forward, it’ll probably only get pulled out (wayhey) at christmas time. something to drink and talk shite around.


#17

It’s not shite. There is enough strategy to reward repeat plays, enough possibility to vindictively ruin someone else’s strategy to ensure low-level arguments, and super easy to pick up.

It’s not my favourite board game, but it’s perfect as a gateway to Epimer’s more murky activities.


#18

Yeah, that’s fair enough.

Have a look at Codenames, it’s kind of like charades (but less shit) and sets up a load of shit talking.


#19

We had this one last year. It’s basically only connect.

It was quite good but my dad is really good at games and sucked the fun out of it.

I bookmarked this. There’s a longer thread somewhere too.
