- its a game of strategy, resource collection, collaboration, and competition. Quicker pace and more fun than monopoly.I love Catan, the expansion makes it even better :)
- If you have no problem losing friends, then this is the game for you.
- Pretend to be a railroad baron by building train routes across the USLove this game. Started playing it with my 8 year old a while back and it's really fun!
- The Android version has local and online multiplayer (and is also on sale at the time of writing!): https://play.google.com/store/ap...I love the random city generator aspect of it and how city mergers are the most effective and meanest strategy in the game.This is our go-to game with new or mixed groups. The rules are very easy to explain (takes me about a minute to cover everything), and it's casual enough that everyone can keep chatting while playing. The mix of strategy and chance makes it engaging for all skill levels and personality types.
- In Pandemic, several virulent diseases have broken out simultaneously all over the world! The players are disease-fighting specialists whose mission is to treat disease hotspots while researching cures for each of four plagues before they get out of hand.
- Super fun game with high replay valueThis is one of the best games out there to play with friends. The game has aspects of a RPG video game and classic dungeon exploration game. One unique aspect, the first phase of the game all players are generally on the same team/neutral. In the second phase, typically one player becomes the bad guy with special powers versus all other players. Examples of bad guy powers could be becoming a vampire, werewolf, or frankenstein's monster, or controlling zombies, aliens, etc etc. There are 50 different scenarios in the standard game box.
- Its like connect 4 and gin rummy on a board. Fairly easy to learn, yet challenging and kinda addictive. Lots of fun to play with big brained friends that super competitive. (get the giant version).
- Can't believe this wasn't added - Cards Against Humanity, but for tech people. Written by one of my good friends, Daniel Singer. It's an absolute blast to play with people who understand/work in the tech industry.
