Not-lame board games

Gloomhaven is big, it’s long and it’s the best board game in history. Fantasy adventurers going around killing monsters, and it’s a cooperative team game, so no fighting over who wins! For one to four players.

Viticulture is one of the best ‘worker placement’ board games of all times. Plan ahead in order to produce the best wines in the region against your opponents, while all sorts of visitors are coming to try a taste, and your grapes are slowly ageing and getting better. For one to six players.
