I've just discovered this amazing board game cafe, where you can reserve a table for up to 3 hours (but only have to leave if someone else has reserved) or just turn up and stay as long as you like.
I wasn't really a fan of board games before this, as 'monopoly' was the first thing to come into my head.
I've decided I especially like co-operative games. So far, some of my favourites are:
- Love Letters
- Forbidden Desert (and the easier Forbidden Island)
- Pandemic (although I've yet to win)
But I have little patience for anything requiring spatial rotation/placement or long games, such as Monopoly.
