6. Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small – Z-Man Games

Addicting Games

All Creatures Big and Small is, essentially, a condensed version of Agricola: it is smaller in scope, in its footprint on the table, and in the amount of time it takes to play. Unlike the larger game, you don’t have to worry about growing crops and feeding and expanding your family, you just focus on acquiring and managing livestock. The amount of strategy game play involved in this board game is astounding.

7. Pandemic Board Game – Z-Man Games

Addicting Games

 

This is the board game which is most likely to becoming one of your most addicting games. Pandemic is called a cooperative game. This is because each player is not competing with each other, but rather trying to defeat the game. It’s like a puzzle, but far more interesting and the game is different each time you play it.
