Board games for family and friends

Carlos Ascanio "Aguila electrica"
The list author says: "Here is a list of my favorite board games. Most of them are strategy games."
Carcassonne
Carcassonne
"Maybe this is the board game I like the most. Is easy to understand the rules but you need to use a good strategy to win. As the game is based on tiles placing, every time you play is different. It also has several expansions. You win constructing castles, farms, roads or cloisters, but you have to defend them from other players who might be interested in stealing them from you"
Ticket To Ride
Ticket To Ride
"Excellent game, funny and amusing. Is based on building train routes, according to destination tickets which tell you to connect specific cities. Each player gets destination tickets in secret, so you have to guess what cities are trying to reach the others and determine if they are going to be in your way. This game also have several expansions. I think the best are Europe and Switzerland."
The Settlers of Catan
The Settlers of Catan
"This is an Incredible game for the family and friends. I play it a lot with my children and my wife. You have to build cities and roads using resources. You can trade this resources with other players, as long as they are willing to. Start with this one and later you can try the expansions that give you new rules and game experience."
Catan: Cities & Knights Game Expansion 4th Edition
Catan: Cities & Knights Game Expansion 4th Edition
"Excellent choice to expand your Settlers of Catan game. This set will give you another dimension of playing. Catan is attacked by barbarians and you have to armor knights in order to repel them. In this expansion, is more important to have cities than towns."
Risk: The Game of Strategic Conquest
Risk: The Game of Strategic Conquest
"High strategy game, a classic to enjoy. This is a territory control game in wich every player got a secret mission. If you finish your mission, you win the game, but you need to choose your accions very carefully to grow stronger in order to do so."
Alhambra: Big Box
Alhambra: Big Box
"Excellent game, I just received it and I think it's great. Paying just a little bit more than the original Alhambra, you get that original game plus 5 expansions. The rules are simple and easy to understand, but you will need a good plan to win. Luck isn't a very important factor in this game."
Samurai
Samurai
"Maybe the rules are a little bit complicated, but it worth the price to dedicate some time to understand them. Basicaly, the board has three types of figures, and you have to collect them to win. Once a figure is surrounded, the player who has more influence over it take it. The influence is given by the number and type of the cards every player managed to place surrounding the figure"
Medici
Medici
"This game is situated in a medieval Italy. Consists in getting goods to increase the amount of florins you have. The method to adquire the goods is through bidding, so you have to calculate the limits of your biddings, taking into account how much florins the good will make you gain later."
LEGO Ramses Pyramid (3843)
LEGO Ramses Pyramid (3843)
"A family game! With the participation of Mr. Reiner Knizia in the design, this is a very good game you can play with your children and have fun."
Tikal
Tikal
"Good game. You are an expeditioner who has to discover temples and tresures. The board is built through out the game as every player takes a tile and play it."
Kosmos - Keltis
Kosmos - Keltis
"A lot of entertainment! This is a very simple game wich gives you a lot of fun"
Set: The Family Game of Visual Perception (Cover art may vary)
Set: The Family Game of Visual Perception (Cover art may vary)
"This a card game of visual perception. You got to identify a set, wich is a group of three cards that has certain conditions toghether. During the game, a lot of tension is created because if you claim an invalid set, you loose the right to speak until other player claims a valid set, so you don't want to claim an invalid set, but you don't want others to claim a valid one before you."
