Given there appears to be some interest, a thread for board game based shenanigans.
Last year we picked up both Azul and Carcasonne, which the kids both love. At some point during this year we picked up one of the add-ons for Carcasonne which has proved completely forgettable.
This year we’ve bought Catan, which I used to play quite a lot with friends. For some reason the boys seem to be able to play it without it all ending in tears, which is quite a surprise.
