Board Games

Hi all,

I'm trying to find a board game that my brother might want for Christmas. He was always a fan growing up of games like Risk, Space Crusaders, and Hero Quest. Recently, we've been playing games like Malefiz, Pandemic, and Settlers of Catan. I was just wondering if any of you knew of any board games like that? I've heard The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones board games are ok but want something a bit better.

Also, we've played all the classics like Monopoly, Game of Life, Cluedo, Sorry etc.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I can recommend:

Articulate - For a bit of brainteasing fun
Rapiddough - an odd adaption of pictionary, where you make things out of dough and others have to guess what it is
Cards against humanity - bad taste and lol!

Bad taste and lol hey? That sounds ideal!

I should also state that my mum also joins in these board games with us and during a rather heated episode of Malefiz she thought my wife called her a bitch! My wife had actually said "I've got an itch"... that was an awkward few minutes!

You're probably right conker. My mother is from Cefn Fforest but I'm not sure they breed them that sturdy up there in the sticks!

I have not seen this on a toy store shelf for years. Perhaps it was deemed ''too non p.c.'' ? But I HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you are a fan of strategy based games.

Escape from Colditz.

You can still find boxes on e-bay etc. The older versions styill have a swastika on the box, but newer ones replaced that with an eagle.

grab some war-hammer or figures like that off ebay and play by therules you will have fun making boards and stuff like that if you get new you can paint them up to not the cheapest thing but it will keep you busy for ages

Thanks for the tips guys. I went for this game called Rummikub but will also look at Axis and Allies. Think one problem-solving game and one strategy game would be a good combo.
