    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.
    Heh, I remember downloading a 2 GB game a lot of years ago. Took 10 days of actual download time.

    Turning video gamers into board gamers is doable. That's how my group formed. A friend insisted we have a board game night for some special occasion (his birthday iirc). He sold it well and we had a blast. Never looked back.

    Like others have said, pick the right game and get people to the table by any means necessary. Make sure you're familiar with the rules, nothing more off putting for the newbie than sitting around while one person goes through a rulebook. Bring some inebriation tools if you're so inclined. The rest will work itself out.

    It promised so much more than it delivered, ages spent trying to get the pitch flat otherwise the bowler would send it straight for 4, usually around mid on (Harmison in action)

    We've been playing a fair dose of Killer Bunnies, Unstable Unicorns & Sheriff of Nottingham lately.

    Would certainly recommend all 3.

    Unstable Unicorns is brilliantly fun but stupidly unbalanced and broken. And sometimes I've gotten stuck in endless games that are pretty much impossible to end.

    I love it.

    Yup, for the reasons you mention, it's great.

    Haha just got back from a few Uno games with the family

    Yea I mean this rule is common sense Daemon c'mon

    I tried to introduce a rule today that anyone who reads out someone elses card aloud should draw a card. Nothing wrong with cheating, should just do it quietly ffs.

    I always found board games quite boring until I found out that improvisations are available.


    Monopoly with a twist

    Yeah ok I don't even own a copy of monopoly. I was tempted by the mario version of monopoly but then I remembered that under the good it's still monopoly.

    Just buy a better game instead.

    Catan is a great start if you absolutely must roll dice. But honestly even that's not even a great game any more. Scythe is a good starting point as any if you come from a video gaming background. If you're more into economic/ strategy games then Brass Birmingham is a cracker. If you're into something lighter/ less complex the arboretum is very simple to play but has really difficult decisions. Azul is one of the most accessible and beautiful games I've seen and it's a great starting point if you want something that's not a brain burner.
