Pretty Board Games

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Buying a new board game is always fun but a little frightening at the same time. Will you enjoy the game or more importantly, will anyone play the game with you? It can be a challenge to pick out a good, new board game. What are some factors that make you choose one board game over another?

Board game packaging can draw you in. The presentation may have been what made you pick it up off the shelf in the first place. A nice looking board game gets your attention, but are looks enough to make you buy a game?

A pretty board game can say a lot. You can usually get a good idea of what the game is all about by looking on the box. When so much detail is put into the board and playing pieces, the game feels like a labor of love. When someone takes time to do something right, it is easy to believe that the board game will be of good quality.


Examples of Beautiful Board Games

One beautiful board game is Tsuro. Tsuro is a simple game where the object of the game is to be the person who stays on the path the longest. The board is a beautiful work of art where you lay tiles that create paths that eventually all players will follow.

Another lovely board game is Small World. Small World is played in eight rounds. The player with the most victory points wins the game. It is more complex it is still fun and appealing to the eye. The board uses vibrant colors and play pieces feature striking art.

A board game can be beautiful and still not enjoyable for some players. While beauty may draw you in, the focus of the game should be the deciding factor. If the board game is a genre you do not enjoy, then beauty will not be enough to draw you in. Check the reviews of a game before buying it.
