Do people here play boardgames?

Hi fellow savages. I´ve always had a bit of a nerdy side and thus play boardgames!


I always imagine that sales people would love board games because we´re competitive and love manipulating (maybe the wrong word). I especially like games where I can screw over people.


Here is a short list of what I play with friends while sipping some homemade cocktails or brewski´s.



  • Carcasonne
  • Catan
  • Machiavelli
  • 7 wonders
  • Caverna
  • Power grid
  • ...
Do you play boardgames?

It can get slightly violent since the competition is quite strong 😆

Really love Azul, Sagrada, and Ticket to Ride. Play a lot of games though, and just trying new ones is fun, so long as someone can explain the rules quickly and efficiently!

Yes explaining the rules can be a pain in the ass. (had this issue with power grid for example) Youtube has a lot of good explanations though. 

I think ticket to ride is a bit one-dimensional tbh.

I like board games but don't play them on the regular. I don't have a crew to play them with. I'll be learning how to play chess soon though.

I play...rarely.   But when I do, it's cutthroat Monopoly or Scrabble.
