Board games are as old as history itself. Men and women have been pitting themselves in contests of intellect, luck, and skill for thousands and thousands of years. Now the only difference is that we have a constellation of options to to choose from. Fight for control of a chain of islands in the Pacific, best your opponents as a merchant in a desert city, or simply be the one to bust open a Piñata at a birthday party.
