Top Board Games Recommendations and Buyer's Guide

Recommended Posts

Some great choices there. For easy-to-get-into but fun-to-play-with-non-gamers games, there's also:

 

Camel Up

Azul
Imhotep

Kingdomino

 

There's loads of others too, but they're the ones that came immediately to mind.

 

The Unlock and Exit series of games are also very good to play with non-gamer groups, but they're single playthrough only (and in the case of the Exit series, you end up destroying the components during play, so you can't even sell it on).

Those look great thanks for the suggestions @Professor Rob

Strike and Push It are both dead easy but addictive little games. About £15 each. Strike is a push your luck dice thrower and push it is like curling

Lots of good family / non-gamer games have been mentioned already so I'll just add

Cockroach Poker

Skull

Sushi Dice (when it becomes available again)

ticket to ride New York / London (great smaller versions of ticket to ride)

As for where to buy from:

Thirsty Meeples

Just realised I meant to say Sushi Roll not Sushi Dice. Don't get Sushi Dice. It's a steaming turd of a game. Sushi Roll on the other hand isn't.

Here’s my top 5 for a new group of players:

 

Carcassonne 

Ticket to Ride: Europe

Forbidden Island

Azul

King of Tokyo

 

Can’t go wrong with Sushi Go Party, Codenames and 7 Wonders either.

Azul can actually be quite brutal for newbies. Century: Spice Road, Reef, Quacks or Splendor would be my picks.
