Best Selling Board Games – June 2011

It may be later in the month than usual, but the top 5 best sellers of June have finally been accounted for!

Our best-selling board games for June 2011 were:

5. Dominion: Intrigue

The first expansion of Dominion, but also its own base game, Dominion: Intrigue provides a gaming experience that has a lot more options than the original.  This ultimately means a slower but more interactive gaming experience.  If you’re looking for your first Dominion expansion, Dominion: Intrigue is a great place to start.

Buy Dominion: Intrigue now.

4. Alien Frontiers

Alien Frontiers is a great dice-based game themed around the colonisation of a planet.  Players roll dice and then go from there to decide which actions to use those dice against.  The pure randomness that so often afflict dice is irrelevant here, because a low roll could be just as strategically beneficial as a high roll.

3. Saboteur

One of the best games for a larger group, Saboteur can handle up to 10 players.  Highly interactive, and quick to play, Saboteur is a great ice breaker for any gaming occasion.

2. 7 Wonders

Our best-selling title for the last two months, 7 Wonders is a card-based civilisation game which incorporates a unique turn order and simultaneous actions into a highly replayable package.

1. Forbidden Island

Released last year, Forbidden Island has rapidly found itself at the very top of our all time best sellers.  From the designer of Pandemic, Forbidden Island is a co-operative game set on a sinking island!

    For me personally, it’s been 7 Wonders. I just can’t seem to get enough of this game. Lots of different scoring mechanisms and yet the gameplay is so simple that anyone can pick it up in a single play.

      Probably 7 Wonders for us too; although I really enjoyed a few rounds of Forbidden Island and Tobago recently … Not my usual dynamics.
