my favourite board (and card) games

I love playing games with my friends.

No, not those kinds of games, the fun ones with pieces and cards, and hopefully no less friends when you finish as when you started.

I wrote in a previous blog post about my favourite date ideas that for the same price as a dinner you can buy a new board game and just grab a pizza and you have something that can be used again and again.

To give you some ideas of games that you can add to your collection I am going to share some of my top games that I love to play with my friends and family. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.


I don’t have too many memories of my Grandpa Wittenberg but one of my favourites is him playing clue with me when no one else in my family would. Ever since this has been one of my favourite games. I love the mental puzzles that you have to do to figure out the puzzle and that it is different every time you play it.


My latest game that I got as a Christmas present is ticket to ride. I love the problem solving aspects of this game, and how every game is so different based on the routes that you pick to create. I have already played this game with a few different groups of people and have had great times doing so.


Dutch Blitz is my ultimate card game. If you have never heard of it is a high-speed card game that involves you having to focus on about a million things at once. It is very popular with a lot of my friends and I am quite good at it so I am always down for a good game of dutch blitz.


Cards Against Humanity is such a fun, bit inappropriate game to play with a large group of people. You really have to know your group before playing this and know what they are good with, but it can be very hilarious.


This is a date night game that Nigel and I bought a few months ago. It is a much more slow and relaxing game as you are working to grow trees. We have only played it a few times, but it is such a beautiful game that is nice for a slower evening.


This game is the only one on the list that I don’t actually own yet, but it is first on the list for next. I like that it is great for two people, for when Nigel and I want to just play a game with each other, but works for more people as well. It is a tile game where you are working to build cities by attaching them together and I am excited to get it one day and play it more.


Do you have any favourite games? What should I be adding to my game collection?
