.

We asked for your favourite board game, and you told us. Thank you. From ancient classics like Chess and Go to more modern staples like Scrabble and Monopoly, we heard all your stories and heeded all your words. Risk was always my favourite board game.

I decided to send it into orbit with a home-made space expansion. Accordingly, we have put together a list of twenty of excellent but slightly lesser-known games suggested by our readers that we either have played and can vouch for their awesomeness, or frankly sound amazing and you should seek out henceforth. But remember: not everyone is on the same square.

Some people out there are more like the person writing this sentence, who only recently discovered all the magic :the gathering he was missing. Please pity the man who only got wood a few short years ago. So here we are then. Maybe start this weekend? We know. The game has loads of add-on packs to increase the complexity. Not, sadly, a game based on the main bad guys in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, this card related kingdom-building and ambition-thwarting game was one of the picks of our readers.

DarkGlen, who provided the picture above excellent poster , really likes Dead of Winter, as did many of our respondents. It sounds ace. He explains:. Each player has a secret agenda, that may be nice and safe and just a bit selfish or may be to cause all of your friends to fail by reducing their morale to 0 before the main objective is complete.

Come to think of it, it probably feels a bit like being a superpower engaged in a tense standoff with a similarly powerful but ideologically opposing hegemon. Still, brilliant. Do card games count as board games? The eternal dilemma. For the purpose of this exercise, they do. Netrunner is the cyberpunky card game our tech desk seem to play a lot of their time playing.

There can be no greater endorsement. Eye-rollers, move on to the next game. Non eye-rollers: this game is awesome! Give it a go. I know, I know. I could easy have made this number 7. In lieu of an apology, Victoria McRitchie explains her journey to this superb game.

Then I found out about BoardGameGeek. I started working my way through the top 20, and now my shelves are creaking under the weight of the European behemoths like Terra Mystica, Agricola and Through the Ages.

Their artwork, mechanics and themes are quite astounding in comparison to the relatively mundane bestsellers like Cranium or The Game of Life. An Indian takeaway and a 5 player game of 7 Wonders for me is my ultimate night in, sheer bliss, especially when I win! Are you trying to punch my ticket?

All aboard! The game itself does not. Those foolish peoples of Atlantis, rightly punished by vengeful gods for their decadent ways. A really great game where the players try to escape the sinking island occasionally helping each other but mainly feeding each others explorers to sharks and sea monsters!

Not to be confused with the admittedly awesome computer game of the same name, Civilisation won strong approval from some of our readers, jolo among them. Probably my favourite game at the minute. Dice-chucking worker placement fun, but as with all my favourite games, the thing I like the most is the interaction between the people, superfun times make superfriends.

Ive been a gamer since my teens and play regularly. My favourite board game is coincidentally my favourite Sci Fi series Firefly. Takes some time and a lot of space but great fun! Gregg Lewis-Qualls likes it so much he even sent in a video. Tell me if you've heard this one before: A Dwarf, a thief, a fighter and a priest walk into a dungeon Warhammer Quest is the quintessential 'Old School' dungeon-crawler.

Assemble wacky, wannabe superheroes from two different halves and then face off against an equally absurd supervillain and their entourage to earn more fame than anyone else.

A discovery and trading game where players have to explore trade routes and customise their ships to best exploit them. Most goods are in demand somewhere except for the Humans' main export - rock videos.

From a few hours, to most of a day depending on the number of players. We bought this at Essen , and it was brilliant. Essentially a train robbery game, and pretty much made for turning into a drinking game.

Lots of fun! It took me a few years to come across the game that I could deem as my 'Grail Game' but eventually it happened. The limited amount of copies in existence does a lot to hinder its reputation but for the few who own a copy, it is something that remains in their collection as a treasure. It is refined, meticulous and mentally stimulating. The rules are simple but the play is nothing short of genius.

For most it's a game that's a easily passed over but for me it's my white whale. It has flaws, but I love it for its built in storytelling and blend of different mechanics. Gang warfare in a bleak future; desperation spelled out in cards you never have enough of, and fights where you can lose everything, going in blind. Really cleverly takes a number of different game elements and balances them against each other to create a unique and fascinating game.

Any games we truly should have mentioned, and are scurvy fools for not having done so? Let us know in the comments section below. One of you has even made your own space add-on to Risk. Risk - Home Made Space expansion Risk was always my favourite board game. Carcassonne is such fun, as you can see Perfect in front of a fire on a winter's night in a pub in the middle of nowhere.

Sweet 7 Wonders victory These aren't particularly impressive scores, admittedly. Survive: Escape from Atlantis! Euphoria - Build a better dystopia Probably my favourite game at the minute. Firefly: The Board Game Ive been a gamer since my teens and play regularly. Heroes Wanted Assemble wacky, wannabe superheroes from two different halves and then face off against an equally absurd supervillain and their entourage to earn more fame than anyone else.

Colt Express with my friends We bought this at Essen , and it was brilliant. Antiquity It took me a few years to come across the game that I could deem as my 'Grail Game' but eventually it happened. City of Remnants It has flaws, but I love it for its built in storytelling and blend of different mechanics. Topics Board games GuardianWitness stories. Game of Thrones. Reuse this content.

With varying degrees of complexity, many are award winners and are thoroughly recommended. It sounds ace. Either way, hoovering up as many properties placed around the board as possible the bid to olr the most profitable never ceases to be fun, both when played in any of the licenced versions or the classic original. But if you are looking for something close to the Original this is it. Aaron Potter.

My favourite board games is coincidentally my favourite Sci Old series Board. The upside? Games couple can be played through in less than an hour, but most of them take between one and three hours. Classic naval combat game dating back to WWI - tense head to head action. Gang warfare in a bleak future; desperation spelled out in cards you never have enough of, and fights where you can lose everything, going in blind.
