1. Skyrim - This is my all time favourite video game. I love the world of Elder Scrolls and I love the gameplay and the sandboxiness of being able to run around and do whatever you want rather than follow a strict progression.
2. Ticket to Ride - Probably my favourite board game. I like that it involves thinking ahead and problem solving, but also gives you the ability to screw over your friends at the same time. Plus I'm fairly good at this game and so always have a chance at actually winning.
3. Balderdash - For when you just want to have some fun and some laughs. I like this game because it always makes me laugh and also is very inclusive, since you don't need to be a serious board gamer to play and enjoy it.
4. Lords of Waterdeep - This game is based on Dungeons and Dragons and it basically involves becoming the most powerful person in the city of Waterdeep. It has quite a few rules and mechanics, but once you figure those out, it is a lot of fun!
5. This War of Mine - This the newest game I've been playing and it is great. For anyone who doesn't know it, you play as civilians in a war and you have to upgrade the abandoned house you live in by day and scavenge for supplies by night. It reminds me of a very dark version of The Sims. But I also love the social message behind this game. It's a very different look at war than any other game I've played. Most war games let you play as a soldier and it also sort of glamorizes combat and death. In This War of Mine, when one of my characters died the other day. I honestly felt sick to my stomach. Very different sort of view of war.
