Your gateway to the board games

Open the Gateway to board games

I am a massive fan of boardgames, and am lucky enough to have a small group of friends that have the same passion for it. We have played a fair few in the past, and this is my run down on the current gateway games that virtually anyone can enjoy, without being overwhelmed.

The sixth game in my brief reviews of TableTop boardgames. Who would have thought you could have a board game based on farming? Not only that, but an enjoyable game with lots of re-playability?

Ticket to Ride was the first game that I bought for myself. I had played it before a couple of years before and really enjoyed it (probably because I won that game).
