European board games are awesome. Hasbro stuff sucks in comparison.


Nostalgia is about the only thing going for 95% of board games we all grew up with. Scrabble has aged well, as has Connect Four and a few others for younger kids. My kids and their friends still enjoy a game of LIFE now too.

But Catan, Ticket to Ride and Azul are all 5x better than Monopoly, Clue, Sorry, etc.
