I am very fortunate in that my wonderful wife and son share the board gaming hobby with me and put up with my constant suggestions to move around pieces of cardboard following arcane rules. I find that it’s something I can share with my family. I know that not all families enjoy board games, and some parents prefer to share their love of video games with their children. I know a few people like that. I even have a friend who uses emulator sites similar to Gamulator (gamulator.com/roms/gamecube) to play old retro games with her family. However, for board game families, last year was great in terms of family gaming, and I wanted to list the games that worked best so that we can look back to appreciate the year that was and hopefully provide some helpful suggestions to other families out there.
Whilst I’m all for playing games with my family (which I absolutely love to do), I sometimes like having the opportunity to play some games on my own from time to time. And you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that most of them take place on my mobile phone or tablet device. Candy Crush, Pokemon Go, and even the odd game of roulette through applications like mega888 2021 have all become appealing to me in recent times. I have yet to win any extra money on the casino site, but I’m holding out hope that it will happen soon, but it’s just a great way to pass the time when I have nothing else to do, which is very rare, as these game suggestions get played regularly in our household.
Let’s take a look back at the 2016 in gaming – the first list will go over the games I enjoyed most. I do not play enough games to only limit it to those released this year, so instead – I look back at the games that I had most fun with this year, regardless of when these were released.
At home I am an old school gamer, I still play games like Diablo 2 and take full advantage of the d2 item store so that I can play just like the old days… thank goodness they never shut the servers because I think I would be stuck! However, at work, I feel that board games are an amazing way to spend time together over an engaging activity. You get to know the people you play with, you get to use your head and most importantly – you have a good time and share some laughs. Some companies keep things digital with some minecraft hosting servers for everyone to be on during lunch, but having an offline option doesn’t hurt. Having a regular gaming gaming group at work (we play every Friday over lunch) was really good for my team at work – the connections you make over a board game easily transfer into effective collaboration on work projects. Plus, unlike most corporately mandated team building – it is actually fun and completely voluntary. This means that people who like to game in other ways can enjoy their lunch as they want. I think a few people like to spend it making investments – be it in gambling on Casinomartini.com or through other means. I’d stick to a casino for that, but hey, to each their own. In any case, this blog post lists Top 10 games to play in such a situation based on a pollgam of our gaming group – hope this will be helpful for folks out there trying to do something similar!
