    Good day, Tornians!

    Just looking for your go-to board game. I've recently bought and played Root, Oceans, and Tapestry, and am hoping to find ideas for my next acquisition.

    My wife and I have an unhealthy obsession with board games.
    Carcassonne is my favorite despite me liking complex games, Five Minute Dungeon is hers.

    My personal recommendations as a board game nerd:
    Azul-Fun drafting tiles game which is good for beginners
    Scythe-Engine game with funny jokes
    Forbidden Island/Desert- co-ops where you manage a slowly disintegrating world while trying to get certain artifacts. They are the only good gamewright games, including the third one.
    7 wonders- cool card drafting game
    Everything by rio grande- all of their games slap, especially dominion and power grid
    Ticket to ride- Classic drafting and route planning game
    Axis and Alies- Not for the faint hearted, a 4+ hour combat slog. 3d edition is best, 1st is slightly worse. I would not recommend buying the 2d.

    Ouija
    The game you start single player. And ends up a LFG for some demon buds.

    Betrayal at the House on the Hill is one of those games that constantly keep you at the edge of your seat. All about strategy!

    My favourite board game at the moment has got to be Wingspan. It's simple and chill and the artwork is beautiful.

    We used to have additional rules, multiple hotels was one. Lego helped show that a street could have 10 hotels, so you paid 10 times as much...

    Games could last days...

    Wingspan! It’s a super fun competitive game and I think they just had a new expansion come out

    I enjoy Gloom Haven. It is a dungeon crawler fantasy that makes long monopoly games look positively fleeting. I used to play with my brother and his friends.

    This is on my want to get list :) 

    Risk and any suggestions to a more advanced similar game?

    Not available for working in a company. Studying and project work takes priority not logging into Torn.

    Game of Thrones the Board Game is a fun one that is kind of like risk. You are capturing zones on a map like Risk and the game incentivizes making/breaking alliances with your fellow players.
