    +1 on the ticket to ride love. Have only had a few nights of playing it, but led to good humour/yelling between myself/mrs ripper/ brother-in-law/ BIL's partner. Plus drinks. Lotsa drinks.

    I said that but I'm going to retroactively change what I said and say that board games are better than most multiplayer video games these days. Video games are way better at the single player experience.

    So I bought a game and have to download 45gb or more? Crazy. Makes reading the rules for a new board game much more tolerable.

    Catan - played this to death before Puerto Rico came along. I've barely played it since.

    Puerto Rico - still the best game for playing with players of equal skill.

    Risk - not bad for a game designed in 1959 but it has largely been superseded. Try Twilight Imperium if you have a day to spare.

    Agricola is another game that hasn't been mentioned but is one that I enjoyed thoroughly. Some people won't like it because of the stress involved but it's so tight and well designed.

    A Feast For Odin is a recent cracker of a game. Huge game that takes ages to play but has the satisfying Tetris feeling but as Vikings.

    Railroad ink is a great recent one for chilling and drawing little railroad and highways everywhere. Its a very Zen game. You play it and bliss out.

    Pandemic legacy season 1 someone mentioned earlier is a fantastic experience as well. Characters can die, cities can riot and descend into chaos. Its a great experience (No spoilers).

    This was very popular in India, long before people could afford personal computers and play games on it.

    Downloaded BF5 for my laptop and it's, like, 70gb download.

    Man, where do you lucky ****ers get the sort of friends who would ready to spend hours playing board games on the weekend? Would love to try but don't think any friends who live near me would be remotely interested.

    The people I know IRL who are into video games largely only play games like FIFA/PUBG which don't require an investment of time but video games are great single player experiences as well anyway.

    A friend in Bangalore goes to specific coffee shop type places where people congregate to find people to play board games and they have whatsapp groups and ****. Might look for something like that in my current city for a try.

    It's easier to make friends out of board gamers than to turn friends into board gamers.

    Having said that, you just need to find the right game to scratch the itch. Scythe odd probably a perfect introduction to video gamers who like more complicated games while you might be better off with a game like Star Realms or Railroad ink for players who are more into lighter/ faster games. For sports fans you might consider Flamme Rouge, which I've never played but it's a very highly rated cycling game. Cash n Guns might appeal to people who love to have a laugh when they play a game.

    Its really about picking the right game for the group at this point. There are so many different types of games out there.

    Ticket To Ride is actually great as far as simple, easy-to-learn and flexible games go.

    the hardest part of ticket to ride sometimes is finding where all the old place names are on the map
