The subject of board games can often be met with a sigh when it comes to convincing friends to play. The following games are excellent examples of games that can turn perceptions around and get more people interested in the game.
Sentinels of the Multiverse puts players in prime position to become the defender of the world. This comic book style game has a whole host of interesting characters to play as. Initially people may be reluctant to take up a card game but there are sites with a variety of online bingo games that prove even the most old fashioned games can be brought up to date. This is an action packed game that’s sure to get even the most dubious player cheering their characters on from the side lines.
King of Tokyo is a game based on the monster genre of Japanese movies, known as Kaiju. In this game every player is represented by their super-sized monster and they must take control of the city. You’ll have to gain 20 stars to have your monster crowned the king, but this gets harder as the game goes on. The characters are drawn in a manga style and the game looks as good as it plays, which is sure to convince players to have a go.
For fans of the gothic era, no other card game comes close to the wonderfully bleak Gloom. This game can be played with as little as two players, so you don’t need to be part of a large group. These players pick a family to play as and then they must disparage the other family to cause them to die. This is done by causing bad events to happen to the family, which lowers the Family Value until they shrivel and die. It’s delightfully gruesome and will appeal to any player that loves a touch of darkness in their life.
Last on the list is Love Letter, as this is a game that’s incredibly simple to pick up. Many new players are put off by involved games that seem to take an age to set up and play. Love Letter combats that with a simplistic style and light rule book that won’t leave anyone out in the cold. In this game players vie for their opportunity to put a love letter into the waiting hand of a beautiful princess. At the same time as you attempt to do so your fellow players will be placing their cards in your way. This is primarily a strategy game, though the luck of the draw can put beginners and experts on the same playing field. This offers new players the option to win, instead of just feeling inexperienced and beaten.
