Conesy’s Top 10 Favorite Board Games of All Time

I was chatting with a friend the other day when I was asked what are my top 5 board games. I thought about it for a bit, but then wasn’t really able to answer it right then. So I sat down, looked at my collection on BoardGameGeek, and started to make some tough decisions.

I am sure this list will flux a bit over the years. I am sure sometime in the future I will end up putting out a new top 10 list for this very subject. It’s hard to predict with the number of games that are coming out which games I will still be in love with and which games will fall a bit out of favor.

Not all of these games are in print anymore, but all of these games are very good.

Here’s Conesy’s top 10 favorite board games of all time. Enjoy

Gaming Spotlight: Dominant Species: The Card Game

Dominant Species – The Card Game

All right, Jason from episode 5.5 and 26.5 picked this game up not too long ago and I have gotten a few plays of it. I have to say, the game is pretty great. The game I think scales fine with more players, even becoming a bit more interesting without too much downtime between turns. It’s been great and it was so good, I had to pick up a copy for myself.

The game is limited to 10 rounds, in which players draw cards that are either an event or an animal. Animal cards go towards your dominance score in the round as well as producing resources such as grubs, meat and grass. Events play towards giving you a key advantage during the round, such as being able to produce more or force opponents to have their animals suppressed! Great game, not too complicated mechanic. It really comes down to getting a feel for when you need to hold your cards and when you need to push.

It is a great game and a great filler game for in between other larger games. It is especially great for evening game nights where you might want to play 3 or 4 shorter and faster games.
