How to choose a board game
Board games can be an incredibly rewarding activity and offer as much depth and challenge as you want to pursue, but finding the right one for you can be a challenge with so much choice out there. Here are some basic things to look out for.
Age range: An important question to answer is who will be playing this game? If you want to play board games with children, then making sure the game is appropriate for their age is very important. However, age range will also tell you a little about the complexity of the game. For new board game players, a lower age-range game might still be appropriate to bring them up to speed.
Number of players: How many people are going to be playing this game? Seems simple enough, but it opens up lots of different options depending on your answer. Some games can work as two-player experiences, while others really need six or more players for things to be really fun. Think about how many people are likely to be playing, but often more players is best.
Complexity: Judging how complex a board game is going to prove is hard from the box alone, but there are some easy ways to judge this. For instance, card-based games are typically relatively easy to understand and play and they don't require a board, much space or lots of rules. Something with lots of game pieces and a large board is likely to be much more complex. Cross referencing with the age range will reveal a lot.
