    My recommendations to start your collection: Pandemic, Takenoko, Carcassonne, Castles of Burgundy, Twilight Struggle. Those are the first five games I bought and I now have loads! 😀 For me they were a great introduction to the hobby. But really, you should just do some looking around, watch some You Tubes, try out games owned by friends, and just buy whatever you want. As long as you get Pandemic. Everybody needs Pandemic!

    Funny enough, the X-Wing Miniatures game is on my "to buy" board game list on Amazon. Just adde Artic Scavengers to it too.

    Hi everyone! I need extremely simple party games for large groups of students (18 players, ages 16 – 19). Taboo was a huge hit and Take it easy! seems interesting. Any other tips? Thanks in advance.

  10. Collection THX1138 says:

    good concise overview explanation of why X-wing is popular

  11. Rodrigo Santos says:

    My 5 games to start would be…

    Carcassonne – a must in any collection at this point XD
    Smallworld – simple, fun, zone controlling epicness
    Forbidden Desert – simlpe and thrilling coop game
    Sheriff of Nottingham – simple, fast and VERY fun party like game
    Smash Up a simple CCG feeling boardgame

    Mate, you've given me so much material to consider upsetting my better half with! She hates clutter and the world of tabletop is a gold mine for having random stuff strewn across all available surfaces. Good video, sir.

  13. jsonaut says:

    Hey mate, great video, I'd love it if you would consider doing a similar video for board games suitable for kids, maybe 8-14. Cheers.

  14. Tim Chuma says:

    You need the buy links in the video description please. Maybe put them on your website with the Amazon affiliates thing.

  18. namcos says:

    I started with the classics:
    Board games:
    Carcassonne & Settlers of Catan
    Card Games:
    Chez Geek & Munchkin

    Other recommendations are the Cheapass games, like Kill Dr. Lucky, Save Dr Lucky and Lord of the Fries, Zombies!! and Hey, Where's My Fish?
