Posts about Tabletop games
Hey everyone! 30M professional in tech here. Looking to connect with people with similar hobbies.
I’m interested in chess (still pretty much a beginner - around 750-800 elo). Among other board games, I enjoy Catan, Pandemic, Ticket to ride, Codenames, Sequence, Santorini, Chinatown etc. I have a copy of of these and can host/bring it to Dream Escape etc.
I also enjoy cycling and squash.
Would love to meet and get to know people with similar interests! Feel free to DM/chat.
Are there any board games released in the 21st century that deserve status as a mainstream institution like Chess, Go, etc.?
Obviously, part of the reason the games I mentioned became institutions is that they existed in a time before economies could support giant companies mass producing copies of thousands of different titles every year. When someone made a great game, it was THE GAME (or one of few) in that time and place.
But setting aside the hurdles of "getting there" in the 21st century, which game(s) would be deserving of that kind of timeless constancy, and why?
