Comparable only to Risiko! o Monopoly for its popularity, Carcassone must not be missing in your collection. A game suitable for everyone, for 2-5 players with a duration of 30-45 minutes per game, which over the years has collected a myriad of expansions, and whose charm still resists today.

In Carcassonne, players have to score points by placing their workers (the famous meeples) on the tiles that make up the map. At each turn, the players reveal the tiles that represent some elements of a medieval landscape, placing them in order to build a scenario that is always consistent, which will be expanded each turn. While tiles are being placed, meeples can be used to extend their influence over areas and earn points. But the meeples are limited, and until the area is closed (for each element such as roads, cities and so on there is a different method) the worker cannot be reused.

With its structure of very simple game, Carcassonne is the classic board game that improves and extends its potential game after partica. Whether you play with the basic version, but above all by adding one of the many expansions.

Just One

In case you have a large family, Just One is the game we recommend. This is a cooperative where you will have to sharpen your wits to find a series of words, but only once, to score as many points as possible for your team, among 13 random words that are drawn at the beginning of the game.

One of the players takes turns showing the floor to the rest of the team without looking at it. The others will have to secretly write one, but only one, which somehow relates to the mysterious word, with the aim of making the player guess it. The goal is to choose neither a word that is too simple nor too abstruse, because after everyone has written their only clue, the players will confront each other to delete the shared clues, thus decreasing the help they will give to the one who will have to identify. the mysterious word.

Among the most famous party games in circulation, in Dixit you will have to work your imagination, creativity, and the ability to combine ideas and lateral thinking. In this way it may sound complicated, but Dixit is really suitable for everyone.

Each player has a deck of cards, with very evocative and often abstract artwork. The player whose turn it is, called the Narrator, chooses one of his cards providing a clue to the other players which can be a phrase, a quote, a sound, or any type of word. The others will have to play one of their cards in turn, inspired by the Narrator's clue. Once all the cards have been revealed, the players' task is to find out which of all the Narrator cards is.

Dixit is a game for a group of 3-6 people, while Dixit Odyssey (which we recommend buying) can be played by 3-12 people complete with team game modes. If you get tired of the card designs - difficult already - in the future you can expand the deck of cards with the many expansions available.
