With Father’s Day just around the corner, we’ve come up with our top five games that we think should make it to the table!
In the latest strategy game from board game mastermind Bruno Cathala, play the role of a gardener aiming to transform the dry desert into the Lost Hanging Gardens of Babylon!
To accomplish your mission, you must plant flowers to gather precious gems, buy trees to earn you points or purchase upgrades. Choose carefully and plan ahead to become the best gardener!
A cooperative game is just what you need to bring everyone together. You’ve escaped the Island and survived the Desert, can you weather the storm?
Forbidden Sky is the third instalment into Matt Leacock’s cooperative series. Connect a circuit of cables to launch a secret rocket – all before you are struck by lightning or blown off to the depths below. It’s a high-wire act that will test your team’s capacity for courage and cooperation. One false step and you all could be grounded… permanently!
You are the next generation of architects who will create the MegaCity.
Race to collect contracts, construct beautiful buildings and vie for awards as a unique MegaCity emerges each time you play. It’s a competitive business where prestige points are everything!
Will your building remain tall when you float it to the centre?
Is cheating wrong? Not in this cheeky card game – in fact, you have to cheat to win!
You can drop them on the floor, hide them up your sleeve or wherever you can. But be careful, you’ll be in big trouble if the Guard Bug catches you!
In this beautiful and unique game, several varieties of trees compete to grow and spread their seeds in the sunlight of the forest. As each tree grows its leaves are touched by the sun’s rays, collecting Light Points and casting shadows on the surrounding smaller trees. When a tree reaches the end of its life cycle, players win points proportional to the richness of the soil the tree was rooted in.
We’d love to see what games you play this weekend to celebrate Father’s Day. Tag us on social media!
