New Style Board Games
Board games have changed in the last 20 years. The new “European” style board games are a lot different than the previous monopolies of the last 80 years.
But why would you invest in a board game in 2017? To any enthusiast the answer is pretty obvious. If you have a family its a great investment. Board games can be used over and over again for years to providing great entertainment for your family without the constant bill. It’s also a great way to get away from electronics and socialize.
New games allow all of their participants to stay playing the entire game. You’ll notice this new style of board game keeps everyone engaged. This is great since games like Risk and Monopoly keep friends isolated while the winner spends 4 hours finishing their final rounds of domination.
Game time has also changed. Most games are designed to be played in under and hour no matter how many players are involved. Take Small World for example. It uses a set number of turns to determine the end of the end of the game. This is actually fantastic because it plays into the game strategy while ensuring you’re not sitting at the table for 6 hours wondering where the day went. Of course, you can always play longer but at least it’s a choice.
If you haven’t tried a good board game in a while I recommend picking one up and giving it a second chance.
