Recommended Board Games

I know how overwhelming it can be to decide what board game to start with or buy next in today’s world. My husband and I have spent hours and hours playing different board games, and probably even more time deciding what games to buy. Needless to say, I hope that I can help save you some time and headache with this list of board game recommendations.

Keep in mind that the board games I recommend are based off on our own personal tastes and preferences. You may like very different types of board games than my husband and I do.
