6 of My Favorite Games


One of my favorite things to do is play games. These are six of my favorite that involve strategy. They were submitted based on how much strategy they included, and also how much fun they are. Some of my favorite games were not included because of the low strategy. I tried not to include video games, but some were too good not to include. All of these games are really fun, and I recommend giving them a shot.


#1 on my list is Aqualin. My recommended age 9+ This game is a two player game involving 36 tiles you move around the board. If you get a lot of a certain type together you gain points, but your opponent gets points from other sets of tiles so you have to be careful.

#2 on my list is Settlers of Catan. My recommended age 8+ This game is a 3-4 player game, but plays best with 3. The board has a lot of hexagon tiles which all have numbers on them. You have to put houses and roads in the right places, then hope the dice ended up with a number you put a house on. Also trading cards is heavily encouraged to help people get the resources they need faster than normal. First to ten points wins.
