I’m an elementary school teacher who loves board games. I consider myself a euro-gamer at heart, but I have been known to enjoy the occasional Ameri-style game. Below you will find just a few of the games I really love. The idea of compiling a list of my favorite games is quite stressful because when I’m required to rank any board game, it feels like I’m saying I would be happy if only a select few games were to exist. This hurts my heart. For my top 6, I have settled on a list of games that I would be happy playing anytime because their gameplay makes me feel as happy and excited as the first time I got them to the table.

My top 6 games in no particular order of importance are:

  1. Ticket to Ride (all stand-alone games and map expansions)
  2. Kanban
  3. Pandemic (and expansions) & Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 and 2
  4. The Exit series of games
  5. The Castles of Burgundy board game, card game, and dice game
  6. Codenames

Follow me, @redmeeplesmash, on Instagram and Twitter to keep up with the games I’m playing.
