Hosting a board game night offers competitive fun for your friends and family. But if you haven't played boards games since you were a child, you may be surprised by how much they have changed. Here are three of the best board games for adults.
Three Board Games Even Adults Will Love to Play
Pandemic. Who would have thought trying to stop the outbreak of a disease could be so much fun? In the game Pandemic, players take on the role of a disease-busting specialist. Each player uses their own specific skill set to work cooperatively as a team to stop four different diseases from taking over the globe by treating patients and ultimately finding the cure for four outbreaks. This is a great strategic game for two to four players and takes less than an hour to play.
Carcassonne. No board game collection is complete without this new classic. In Carcassonne, your goal is to build a world using tiles and gather resources by placing meeples (wooden people) on resources to earn points. The person with the highest number of points at the end of the game wins. While the rules are simple to grasp, the gameplay offers enough deep thinking decisions and a variety of options to keep you coming back for just one more game. Carcassonne is a fast-paced game, and two to five players can finish a game in as little as 30 to 45 minutes.
Ticket to Ride. You take on the role of a 19th-century railroad tycoon in this board game. Ticket to Ride combines collecting cards to complete routes between cities and predicting the actions of your competitors in order to block their progression. Each player has only a limited number of railcars and tracks to use for scoring the highest possible amount of points to win the game. This is a light-hearted, yet competitive strategy game for two to five players. Games take about 45 minutes to play.
