  1. Galaxy Trucker. You scramble to claim parts to build a perfect spaceship along with other competitors, then you do a supply run filled with pirates and meteorites. They will mess your ship up. Whoever has the most intact ship and made it to port with the largest shipment wins.

    It’s a extremely fun game.

  2. Any version of Clue. I got about 4, maybe 5, and they are different and fun. Although the spy edition one was better when the messages actually occurred.

  3. I’m a big fan of occasionally setting off an entire day for a session of Twilight Imperium. Games can last 8 to 12 hours, but there’s almost nothing like it. Strategy, betrayal, space war, diplomacy… it’s got it all. Order a couple pizzas, bring a few six packs of beer or your favorite wine bottles, and it’s a good way to spend a Saturday–or at least a few evenings on Tabletop Simulator with a dedicated group

  4. If you’re hanging out with other adults, Escape from the House on the Hill is a good time (or escape from Baldur’s Gate, D&D spinoff version If you prefer). Gloomhaven and HeroQuest are great, but much more in depth, time consuming, and are meant for multiple play sessions. And then not necessarily board games, but tabletop games, both Cards Against Humanity and The Red Dragon Inn are a blast with friends, but they require a bit of investment due to dozens of expansions. Not required, but they do add a lot more variety to sessions.

    If you mean classics, there’s always stuff like Risk or Monopoly if you really want to hate your friends.

  5. Betrayal at House on the Hill or Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate (if you want more of a D&D theme.)

    You start by building out a house or city of Baldur’s Gate. Once a “haunt roll” is failed the game changes. There is a big table of different scenarios for which item and which room the roll is failed in. Usually one player becomes a traitor and is against the others but sometimes there is no traitor. I’ve had some of my most epic gaming moments playing those games.
