Board gamesBoard games are one of the most successful entertainments over the years. In times when technology was not yet the star of our day to day life, it was the perfect entertainment to spend both a rainy winter afternoon and a hot summer siesta time among friends or family, and as you know, everything is back! We love the social net created by the board games, the smiles, the complicity, the nerves of knowing you are almost the winner, the good taste that you have left after a good game in good company...
That is why today we wanted to make a top 12 of our favourite board games, some of which you will find in our houses, so you can share a happy time with family and friends.
At the top, a classic one. It is ideal for playing with the family, both for children and adults, since the rules are easy, clear and understandable: the final goal is to be the first to finish without cards. Remember to say UNO when you have only one left!
Do you want to test your knowledge of geography, history, sports, entertainment, art, literature, science and nature? You can play by teams, and to be the winner you have to fill all six coloured wedges.
Have you always wanted to own many properties? With this game you can achieve it: invest in real estate to make a business later and become the richest in the table!
An ideal game to test your flexibility and balance. You become the piece and you will have to make impossible positions to put any of your limbs to the colours you touched.
The game of Parcheesi was born in India in the 16th century and today it is one of the most successful board games worldwide. It only takes 1 dice and 4 chips per player (with a maximum of 4), and the game is about getting the 4 chips in the box before our opponents kill us.
To demonstrate your skills with your hands and mind. If the nerves make you tremble, bad! It involves removing the wood pieces and putting them on top of the remaining ones so that the tower never falls. The minimum of players is 2 and loses who makes the tower fall.
Another classic from remote times. You can play the usual way, that is, by linking the divided quadrant with the corresponding number, or making a row of pieces and creating the famous "domino effect". Any of the two formulas is fun and entertaining.
It is a strategy game that consists of creating a game map where players compete to get the most points with the best possessions (cities, fields, paths and monasteries).
9. The "game of the Goose"
The translation of the main sentence of tha game is: "from goose to goose and my turn again" Who has not lived much of his childhood singing this song? The goal is to reach the final square through several boxes that will make you jump forward, pull back or start again.
How many years do you draw? It is not so much about knowing how to draw better or worse but to draw the essential thing for others to know what you want to say.
This game asks to apply strategy and logic, which makes it very interesting. The objective of the game is to use all your cards by forming groups of the same number with different colour or stairs of the same colours. The game ends when a player has used all of his cards and claims a Rummikub.
A game of 2 to 4 players where the main challenge is to build words (the longer the better) and place them in the best situation in the counter to earn the maximum points.
In most of our houses you will find cards, parchisi and the game of the goose and even billiards, table football or table tennis. We are sure that with these 12 board games you will laugh as never accompanied by your friends and family. Let's play!
