Top Board Games (Fall)

There are a lot of gift guides floating around out there, so you may be wondering what people in our area have really been buying this season, as opposed to games they're encouraged to buy. Here's a list of our top selling board games for the Fall. There is some holiday contamination on this list, but they're mostly solid games that cross the various board game genres (including some card games).

Also, I put an asterisk next to each game on one of the gift lists, including: Boardgamegeeks holiday gift guideSF Chronicle guide, Critical Gamer, The Speil, Gamer Chris and The Morning News guide. Consider them both endorsements and reasons for why these games are top sellers.

  1. Forbidden Island ****
  2. Betrayal at House on the Hill **
  3. Settlers of Catan Rev. **
  4. Resident Evil Deck Building Game
  5. Dominion: Prosperity Expansion **
  6. Castle Ravenloft  **

  15. Thunderstone
