So if you're also a board-game-loving kind of person, here's some of our new favorites we highly suggest checking out:
Las Vegas Showdown
Each player has their own board that you have to "build" your casino on. You're working to beat other players by "constructing" your casino first and gain the most victory points to win. Still working out the best strategy to win this game...I think I've come in last every time so far, ha!
In this cooperative game, you work as a team to save the four treasures of a sinking island. I thought this game provided a nice change of pace from games where you work against each other. It's such a different way of strategy thinking.
You're working against each other again, but there's literally no way to know who's winning until it's over, so that definitely keeps things interesting. Also, you only play with 10 out of the 25(!) sets of cards, so every time you play will be different. I don't even know how many times we'll have to play before we've tried every option!
For as many times as we played these games in the last 3 weeks, I don't think I ever won. So, ya know...these must be fun games if I keep playing and LOSING every time ;) But seriously, call me if you're gonna host a game night soon!
