Years ago mates taught me the card games 500 and Eucre whilst we were stuck in a tent during stormy weather whilst climbing. But, have forgotten how to play now.

In the days when it seemed there was an abundance of time, the favourites were:

Monopoly
Scrabble
Chess
Mahjong

'How To Host A Murder', where everyone dresses up in costume and adopts a character was also heaps of fun!

Drinking games were fun while they lasted, or remembered, the following day, not so much fun at all! (Fuzzy Duck, Ducky Fuzz ...)

My favourite is Pandemic, because it is a cooperative not  a competitive game.

Too many very unhappy hours watching my little brother throw tantrums and be sent to bed over Monopoly, this is great, all working together to save the  World.

On topic, this is one of my favorite board games, aside from Settlers of catan:

7 Wonders





I like this game a lot, because it is a fun mix of strategy and random chance.

Pandemic is a great game! My favorite game of all time, which sounds like it would be fun in the scenario OP described, is Betrayal at House on the Hill. Usually one person ends up being the traitor, but it's actually a lot of fun to be in that position. Another working together game is Flash Point. I find the co-op games to be a lot more fun than traditional board games.

I just recently picked up the Talisman core set and Agricola Family Edition.

Agricola seems like the perfect permaculture game. Has anyone here tried it? I haven't had a chance to play yet but it looks hella fun!



"Diversity is Key! Monoculture is boring." Right??!! lol

Worth reviving this thread for a NEW game by Thomas Elpel - currently in a Kickstarter!

Wildlife Web:  Dynamic ecology strategy game



Congratulations on the new game, Tom!!
 
You know it is dark times when the trees riot. I think this tiny ad is their leader:
