There are tonnes of classic games out there as well as new games coming out all the time, with the rise of Kickstarter and a resurgence in popularity for all sorts of board, card and party games it can sometimes feel a little...overwhelming.
What's good? What's popular? What am I going to like? Whats hot on Board Game Geek right now? Is it thrilling? Is it relaxing? Is it two player? How long does it take? Whats the next big thing? These are all questions we often ask ourselves during our strive to find the next new game we desire. So much so that sometimes we forget The Classics.
Here at Zatu you can see we have a very wealthy trove of games on offer but we firmly believe that sometimes you just can't beat The Classics. So in no particular order here are a selection of some of the classic, favourite and long time best selling classic games that we offer.
Everyone remembers it growing up, playing with friends and family alike. A great source of entertainment for adult and kids everywhere.
Some enjoy the original Monopoly and can't wait to get their hands on their favourite top hat game piece or are hankering to take control of all four stations. Others might prefer one of the newer themed editions based around a British City, a football team or their favourite film/TV. And I'm sure we all remember people those who just couldn't play by the rules either, well don't worry we've got your back with Monopoly Cheaters Edition too!
A game of words, spelling and strategy. It's a great classic game to play with family and friends alike.

A game with a simple goal, conquest. Build your armies, move your troops, engage in battle and take control. A game full of alliances, betrayal and surprise attacks.
Figure out who murdered the host in this original 'whodunit', could it be Scarlet with the dagger in the games room? With tabloid style instructions get the scoop on the updated rooms, weapons and guest. Intrigue cards add suspense and clues but careful, they may result in a second victim!

Tweezers Ready? Hand Steady? Alright, time to help the Operation character Cavity Sam get back on his feet. But be careful, if you slip whilst removing the butterflies from his stomach or accidentally nudge the edge when handling the frog in his throat it's game over.
You can't beat the frustrating fun when you hear the buzzer and see his nose light up red.
The aim is to scurry around the board, collecting and stealing cheese from each other, but beware of the trap!
We don't have a catalogue full of Mousetrap games because there can only be one.
