Summer time is almost here (okay, let’s all agree that it is here), so what better time to head inside and play some board games? Some of you might not be as board game focused as I am, as I’ll never turn down an opportunity to play some board games, but the summer is still a great time to get your game on, even if it is after a day out in the sun! What else are you going to do at the cabin (cottage for those east of Alberta), trailer, or even in your own home in the evening?
What’s that? You don’t have many games to play? Well, you’ve stumbled upon the perfect contest then, haven’t you? Best Buy’s Plug-in Blog is giving away oodles of top quality board games! Now, I’m not just saying they’re great games and then actually giving away board games based off of 1990s TV shows—no, these are legitimately awesome games.
Here are some examples of the great games you could be playing this summer
- Sushi Go Party is the big brother to the awesome small box game of Sushi Go (which I talked about in this article that I wrote recently on the blog, here).
- Fog of Love is in the top 1000 games of all time on boardgamegeek.com.
- Machi Koro is a great “gateway” game that’s easy to teach and fun to play (which I talked about here).
- Imhotep is a clever strategy game (I talk about its variability in setup here).
- Legends of Andor is an awesome adventure game (which I talk about here).
- Bob Ross: The Art of Chill is a great and accessible game about painting with Bob Ross (and will be featured in my next video review, coming soon to the Best Buy Blog).
- Codenames is one of the top 10 games to come out in the last 10 years (which I talk about in my article about “How to host the perfect game night“).
- Dropmix is a super addictive music making game, as you will learn if you watch this video review that I recently did on the Best Buy blog:
And then we throw in a couple of Monopoly games for the traditionalists (Han Solo Monopoly, and Game of Thrones Monopoly), an adults-only Trivial Pursuit game, and some party games (Speak Out and Fake News)! What more do you want? Oh, you want the rules on how to win? Right.
