Ticket to Ride
The quintessential entry-level tabletop game, Ticket to Ride is a quick to pick up, yet deceptively tactical game. Players have to collect train cards in order to build routes across the board and expand their locomotive empire. They best be quick though, or they may find their route blocked by another player!
There is a deadly virus spreading across the world and it is up to your team to stop it in its tracks before it's too late! Pandemic is a cooperative game meaning you all win together or, (more likely) all lose. Although tricky to master, this game is a must if you are looking for a real challenge for you and your friends.
Based on the beautiful french medieval city of the same name, Carcassonne is the perfect introduction to worker-placement games. Each turn, players place tiles and “workers” to construct and connect their own walled-cities in order to score the highest points!
