the game Gloomhaven.

Tomorrow is Dom’s birthday, one of those “big” birthdays. To celebrate, we are taking the day off (Friday) for a long weekend of … board gaming. I presented him with Gloomhaven and delicious vegan snacks.

To honor my 90 day commitment to daily publishing, I am posting this before we dive in. Here are the games we play most often, especially when my son visits.

Dominion

Whenever there are more than two of us, we always play at least one round.

Trivial Pursuit

I played this for the first time when I was 19 years old. I love it just as much now.

Lords of Waterdeep

A woman working in The Brooklyn Strategist recommended this, we wouldn’t have picked it out ourselves. It quickly became a staple.

Jaipor

Whenever there are more than two of us, we always play at least one round.

Code Names

This is new for us and we’ve played through all the cards already.

Cards Against Humanity

Personally, I think the only reason to have a party is to play this game.
