Summary of “How to build an amazing board game collection for $10!”

That said, putting together an amazing board game collection can be cheap.
Monikers is the party game we’d recommend instead, though since it’s only a lovely edition of a popular public domain game, printing it is just one option available to you.
In a nutshell, the game starts with two rooms of people, all of whom are secretly on either the Red Team or the Blue Team, and the game is for the reds to get their Red Bomber player into the room with the Blue President via a hostage exchange by the end of 15 minutes, at which point the bomb explodes.
Funemployed is a game of terrible job interviews that requires a bit of improvisation from players, but it’s the most I’ve ever laughed playing a board game.
As a bonus, it’s the only drawing game where not being able to draw makes the game better.
Win, Lose or Banana is, on paper, a terrible game, but in practice it’s occasionally the best game ever? You can buy the official game for $1, but if you make your own version by scribbling on some cardboard the police are unlikely to investigate.
The bigger my board game collection gets, the more I appreciate the simplicity and cultural gravity of a cup full of dice, or an ordinary 54 card deck.
You could ask me “Quinns, do you want to play an expensive, lengthy board game from your collection, or do you want to drink and play Liar’s Dice with £5 on the line?” and I’d have to think about my answer for a long time.
