Category - Modern Board Games

Board games have come a long way since the 1970s. They’ve even come a long way since the 1990s and early 2000s. Gone are the days of flimsy cardboard and games with little decision making. Modern board games come with a visual bang: glossy paper, thick durable cardboard and even resin or high quality pvc miniatures. But more important than the appearance is the gameplay.

Modern board games pack quality decisions, rewarding actions, and numerous ways to play, and win. From competitive play to cooperative, the games listed below are just a tiny drop in the ocean that is modern board gaming. These are games that I love and would play just about any time. Perhaps some of them might be of interest to you; you might even find your next favorite game. Dive in and take a look.
