Board Games for your Family and Friends

Here at The Games we quite like playing board games, especially good ones. The 'classic' board game will be easy to learn, hard to master and highly addictive; take 1-2 hours, be for 3 - 5 players and for those over age 8-ish.
Some of our favourites are:

There's plenty of variety though, so browse around.

To help you choose the very best, each game gets a rating with various qualities of a great board game - Strategy, Learnability, Replayability, and Entertainment.

Here at the games we like to support the board games of NZ. One of the NZ classics is Stonewall, an awesome game involving cunning, skill and a bit of luck.

Linwood another New Zealand made board game, the board game.....without a board!
Right from your first step, you decide how the land of Linwood will unravel. Will you rush off in pursuit of the hidden element stones, or patiently wait as others find themselves lost in a dark and unfamiliar forest?

We also keep an eye out for the 2nd hand kiwi classic Poleconony. If you have a part set of Poleconomy or want a full set, then Contact us and be part of the Poleconomy legacy.
