It’s true, board games ARE making a comeback. Call it a “Renaissance” if you will — but if the only games you know are Scrabble, Clue and Monopoly, you’re missing out on a lot. A HUGE lot, if I may add. For those of you who wish to get started on your board game collection, I’ve compiled my own personal “Top 5″ list on what has to be essential “must buys”.

I know some of you will agree and a lot will disagree.

But hey, it’s a free world after all. I’ve linked all the titles to their appropriate Board Game Geek review page so you can get more info. Enjoy… (and feel free to share!)

On to the list…

1. Ticket To Ride

tickettoride

For lots of replayability and a game where your entire family can join, Ticket to Ride is, hands down, the best choice. You select “tickets” (routes that you need to connect), draft cards of the appropriate color, or lay tracks. The player with the most points (each route is worth a certain number of points, the longer it is – the more points you score) at the end of the game wins.

Intrigued? Check out the Dice Tower Review of Ticket to Ride here.

How Much?: around PHP2,500++

2.  Settlers of Catan

settlers

Catan is one of the oldest games that still attracts a huge following. It definitely started the “Euro” board game genre. Catan has tons of strategic elements but isn’t as complex as you might expect. BGG sums it all up; “players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game. Multi-award-winning and one of the most popular games in recent history due to its amazing ability to appeal to non-gamers and gamers alike.”

How Much? Around P2,000 to P4,000 depending on the version of the set (older ones are more rare than others)

3. Dominion

I have to admit, I LOOOVEEE Dominion!!! Coming from a Magic: The Gathering background, this allows me (and my friends) to scratch our deck-building itch. It’s competitive enough but light on the budget. In Magic, you have to constantly search, trade and buy the cards to improve your deck… in Dominion, EVERYTHING you need is here – right out of the box! You build your deck during the course of game-play and the goal is to buy “estates” which earn you Victory Points at the end.

For card Chuckers and stategists, I give Dominion two thumbs up! Worth a place in any gamer’s shelf.

How Much? The Dominion “Big Box” (a bundle of 3 Dominion sets) is anywhere from P4,000 to P5,000 for the set (worth it!)

4. King of Tokyo

kingoftokyo

In 2011, King of Tokyo was released to the market. It didn’t rip off any major, known mechanic. The game play was fast, simple and fun. Be the last Big Monster standing in Tokyo! Uber fun! BGG writes “In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and other aliens – all of whom are happily whacking each other in a joyous atmosphere in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.”

Trivia: Richard Garfield (the dude who made Magic The Gathering) designed King of Tokyo!

5. Risk: Legacy

The original Risk was released in 1957 by Parker Brothers (makers of Monopoly). It was a war game. But unlike complicated war game simulations (where you needed a degree in Algebra), Risk was easy to learn, easy to teach, and had deep strategical levels. Recently, the classic Risk received a fresh coat of paint in 2011 via Risk Legacy.

In the new version of Risk, there are 5 special “races” with special powers and abilities. Not only that, the victories (and the players who won) will shape the rest of the game board and the campaign. (Example, in our game, I won the first one and I get to name my own continent — Monopotamia. Uber Cool!)

If you have a couple of hours, pop open some beer and pretzels and wage global war against your friends! Risk is a perfect Saturday game with a lot of replay value.

How Much? Around P2,500
