I like games and I’ve played quite a few of them. I’ve played enough now to have built up my top 100 board games. I feel it is pertinent to state a few caveats before I dive in.
Just because a game is not on this list doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy that game. There were a lot of games that just didn’t make the cut that I do enjoy–but these titles are my favorites.

I made a point to include a greater diversity of games. I did this because, in all honesty, my preferences as a gamer lean towards more deeply complex games. I would like for this list to incorporate games that I find thoroughly enjoyable, regardless of if they are my preferred type of game. I would also like to point out that I enjoy fluid mechanics in the games I play, and thematic consistency is not very important to me. With this is mind I won’t likely touch on the theme aspect of the games in my list very much. Though without further ado, I suppose we should dive right in:

Perhaps we will take a pilgrimage down an ancient road in feudal Japan. Next week we will defend the planet from deadly diseases. Welcome to the world of modern board games. Continue reading
