Happy Tabletop Day, everyone! In honor of today, I want to hear about your favorite tabletop games!

I'll start. One of my favorite games lately has been Betrayal at the House on the Hill. You and your other players are a trapped inside a haunted house and have to find a way out by exploring the manor and finding items and weapons to help you survive. There's a twist though, at some point one of the players will betray the group! Who that is and why they turn are randomly decided based on the Omens you find during the first half of the game.

One thing that's great about the game is that the play is very simple to learn. Most of the complexity comes from the cards you draw which all explain what they are and how they work.

If you like horror stories and board games, I cannot recommend this game enough!

Are we talking about any game played on a tabletop (as in card games, board games, D&D, the whole shebang)? If so...

You can't beat Cards Against Humanity for a fun party game that doesn't require a lot of thought but will have you rolling in laughter at how terrible you and your friends can be.

Fluxx is another card game but basically the opposite kind of appeal. It's 100% strategy and that strategy has to keep changing. It's not one you can play when you're tired. :D

I just recently discovered the joys of Settlers of Catan.

And there's the classic Cones of Dunshire! :D

Recently we've been playing a lot more of a game called Istanbul some friends brought over for a game night. The video below explains the game well and once you have the rules down it's all strategy on how to collect all the rubies first!
