We start with a top 10 of the best board games and well-known games, and then you will find a list of additional board games.

Well, let’s have a look at the best board games for family and friends.

1 – Monopoly

This game is unparalleled fun and stays firmly on 1. Do stick to the rules exactly, because then a game can be done very well within a reasonable time. If you change the rules of the game yourself and introduce unnecessary inflation into the system, it can go on indefinitely.

Tips for winning: Go for the stations. Also go for all the streets that are on the first half of the board, because the players come up there much more often because of ‘Go to jail’, ‘Go to start’ and other chance cards. Also take the red streets and place as many 3 houses on your properties as possible so that the houses are empty and your opponents can no longer buy houses. 

2 – Risk

A stylized world map … It seems like a simple game. But in the meantime you can bluff and enjoy the fun fighting system. 

3 – Ticket to ride

Looks like Risk, only more beautiful and a completely different twist … without fighting.

4 – Dice games, such as Yahtzee

Yahtzee is a beautifully simple dice game!

5 – Chess, Checkers, Backgammon & Go

You need to have these classics.

6 – Fun card games, such as bullshitting

Just a deck of cards will ensure hilarity.

7 – Jenga (with a twist)

Jenga is simple and fun.

8 – Stratego

This board game is different every time!

9 – Catan

The board itself is different every time. What choices do you make?

10 – 30 seconds

It’s a simple game: the more terms you can describe and guess, the more steps you can take on the board. There is no more to it – except a die with which you can get penalty points.
