Christmas Countdown

It’s exactly one month until Christmas Day and we at SeriouslyBoard want you to be prepared with gifts that the whole family can enjoy.

The holiday season can be a stressful time, so here are a few simple game ideas that may appeal – either for a family member, or a treat for yourself…

Starter Set

If you’re new to the world of modern board games, then something introductory should go down a treat.  And for that, you can’t look past Carcassonne, Settlers Of Catan and Ticket To Ride.  These games have introduced literally millions of people around the globe to a whole new world – your friend or family could be next!

Stocking Fillers

If you’re looking for something small  and quick to play as a “cherry on top” to go with a main present, consider a simple set collection game like Coloretto, or for a more laidback approach, fun titles like No Thanks and Saboteur.

Social Experiment

If you’re specifically after a game that suits a larger group, check out Citadels, Jungle Speed and Say Anything, depending on whether you’re looking for strategy, action, or laughter respectively.

Staying On Home Soil

If you want to keep it Kiwi, then the likes of the widely publicised Endeavor, or self printed titles like Linwood and Stonewall should keep you occupied and suitably patriotic.

Sports Madness

If you or a family member are bit mad about sports, then we have a couple of products that are exclusive to SeriouslyBoard.  Hot off the heels of the All Whites campaign, there is The World Cup Card Game 2010.  Or, if you prefer to look ahed to the Rugby World Cup in 2011, then Crash Tackle may be just what the coach has ordered.  Both of these games are imported directly by us for the sportsperson within you.

Spiel des Jahres

So, only the best will do, huh?  Well then, check out recent winners of the Spiel des Jahres, board gaming’s most presitigious prize: Dixit, Dominion, and Thurn And Taxis.

Ultimately, there’s a game out there to suit just about any group or gathering.  And remember: if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can contact us and we’ll do our best to track down that one perfect gift.
