3. Dominion

Winner of the 2009 Spiel des Jahres and a thoroughly popular game, Dominion is a deck building game set in medieval times.  With most games lasting only a half hour, and with so many expansions on offer, Dominion promises a heap of variability.

2. 7 Wonders

A hugely popular – and addictive – civilisation building game that barely lasts 45 minutes, 7 Wonders puts players in charge of building an ancient wonder.  With a simple core mechanic but various layers of depth, 7 Wonders is a highly replayable game.
