Clever Move: 7 Kinds of Gifts Board Gamers Receive

December 30, 2014 - 11:01am
hanabi Did you get any board games for Christmas?  Or is that a rhetorical question? Clever Move posted an article last week offering seven possible categories of gifts board gamers tend to get at Christmas.  Quite interesting and admittedly humorous, I found myself relating to some of these.  Examine your board game gift assortment from last week and see if anything falls into any of these categories (the one in parentheses is the example from the article):
  1. The Perfect Little Game (Hanabi)
  2. The High-Priced Game (Ticket to Ride 10th Anniversary)
  3. The Expansion You Didn't Want (Dominion: Alchemy)
  4. The Expansion You Did Want (Settlers of Catan: Traders & Barbarians)
  5. The Game You Already Have (Carcassonne)
  6. The Expansion for a Game You Don't Own (Thunderstone Advance: Caverns of Bane)
  7. Monopoly (self-explanatory)
