Most-played Boardgames of 2015

sabotHere are the ten boardgames I played the most during 2015. The year's total was 78 different boardgames.

  • Saboteur (2004) *
  • Istanbul (2014) *
  • Love Letter (2012) *
  • Manhattan (1994) *
  • 6 nimmt / Category 5 (1994)
  • Elysium (2015) *
  • El Grande (1995) *
  • Magic: the Gathering (1993)
  • Province (2014) *
  • Boss Monster (2013) *

These are mostly short games that you can play repeatedly in one evening. Istanbul, Elysium, El Grande and Boss Monster are a bit longer. Another long game that I played a lot was Galaxy Trucker. All are highly recommended!

Pandemic: 2-5 players, all against the game. Fairly short, very rewarding and exciting even if you lose. Reasonable priced.
