There are times where your brain just wants to turn off. If you’re going to play something simple and welcoming, let us show you our current favorite chill-out board games. These are 5 games that can give you that calm game night experience.
Chill-out board game #5 – Discover: Lands Unknown
When this game was released, it stirred a fair bit of criticism. No two copies of this game are alike. Everyone has an entirely different experience, with different zones and characters.
At its core, Discover: Lands Unkown is a game about adventure. You’ll spend most of your time traveling around, discovering new areas, defeating some enemies, gathering resources, and the like. What’s better, there are a few unique playable characters, which will offer plenty of replayability.
Chill-out board game #4 – Villagers
Chill-out board game #3 – Takenoko
Chill-out board game #2 – Ishtar: Gardens of Babylon
Although Ishtar will seem quite overwhelming at first, with its mainboard, drafting board, player board and plenty of little pieces, it’ll all quickly gel into a beautiful experience of turning the desert into the Gardens of Babylon. Mostly, it’s a game that thrives on moderation. It has a moderate duration, moderate difficulty and moderate adherence to the theme. It’s nothing fancy, but it is cute, fun and allows for a fair bit of strategy and planning.
