Board Games

Board games are a vanishing breed. At one point it would probably be safe to say that almost any home contained several board games that were played often. Monopoly, Scrabble, Risk and others were common pastimes.

Today, board games are much less common. Part of it can be attributed to other diversions; radio and television, role-playing games and collectible card games, video games and computers and the Internet. But, the games are still there and are still played by many people.

Here are some of the games in my collection. Some are older games and others are still produced today. I like them because of their themes, unique components or just because they are fun to play. Click on any of the titles below to find out more.

Two of my favorite boardgames were "Solar Quest" (Monopoly-like game based on planets and moons in the solar system) and "Tactics II" (a wargame using tiles)

I can\'t agree with your comment that board games are a vanishing breed. This is a real spring time for board games. The number of publishers, designers and players has been steadily rising for at least a decade and some board games are even finding their way into mainstream shops like ToysRUs and Waterstones.

Have a look at this link to see some of this year\'s new releases announced at the Nuremberg game fair (keep clicking on the \'Next Page\' link to see it all):

There has never been a better time to be a board gamer (except that we tend to be spending more than ever on these marvellous new designs).

Where have you guys been? You state that board games are a vanishing breed even though there is a renaissance in euro/designer games. Just check the over 40 thousand reviews/free expansions/geeklists/pictures/movies/extra rules etc... on Boring/long/gimmicky/party games are on their way out. Perhaps, since you can't get good games at walmart or toys'are'us, it may seem that boardgames are vanishing but it's just that you need a hobby/gaming store or go on line to find the good stuff. Some of the funnest games you might try are ticket to ride, carcassonne, citadels, memoir'44, puerto rico, race for the galaxy, agricola, twilight struggle, power grid, battlestar galactica-and the list goes on. Happy gaming!

You should review King Oil. It was another great game from 1974, only to be issued once.

Thanks for this site. We just bought Dogfight from a 2nd hand store but with no rules. My boys, 7 & 9, and I are going to have fun shooting each other out of the sky!
