Choosing board games can often be made difficult with so many options to choose from. Resident Geeks to the Rescue! We’ve put together a list our most popular board games to help make choosing that little but easier. All of our games are available for collection in our Glasgow store and Worldwide delivery.

Ticket to Ride

With elegantly simple gameplay, Ticket to Ride can be learned in 3 minutes, while providing players with intense strategic and tactical decisions every turn. Players collect cards of various types of train cars they then use to claim railway routes in North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who fulfill Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities; and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.

Splendor

Splendor can be explained in 5 minutes and can be played in half an hour.

In Splendor, you lead a merchant guild and by using tokens representing gemstones, you will acquire developments which produce new gems (bonuses). These bonuses reduce the cost of your purchases and attract noble patrons. Each turn is quick: One and only one, action. The first player to reach 15 prestige points by accumulating nobles and development triggers the end of the game. Works with two players just as well as with three or four.

Catan Junior

Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of islands where 2 to 4 players build hideouts and encounter the mysterious Spooky Island, where the Ghost Captain lives. Each island generates a specific resource: wood, goats, molasses or swords, and players can acquire gold.

Each player starts with two pirate hideouts on different islands, and they can use the resources they acquire to build ships, hideouts or get help from Coco the Parrot.

By building ships, they can expand their network; the more hideouts they build, the more resources they may receive. Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain!
