My partner and I are both enthusiastic board game players, and this is extremely convenient because it means that any board games they own, I can access any time (plus have someone to play it with!) But with one semester left in my degree, the prospect that I may have to move away for work while they stay to finish their studies is something I worry about often. And of course, the most serious consideration now is, what are the board games my partner owns that I couldn’t bear to go at least a year without, and would buy for myself after relocating? This is the important question that I will attempt to answer in this Geeklist.

There are also a number of games that I own that I think my partner would enjoy more and get more use out of than I would, so I would leave with them. I won’t add these to the geeklist but I will list them briefly here:

BattleCON: Devastation of Indines (this is rough, because I love this game, but a) I don’t think I could meet anyone in a microbiology lab who would want to play this with me, whereas my partner has a friend who is somewhat interested in playing it, and b) it’s a big heavy box that would be a pain to transport long distance)
The Cave
Not Alone
Photosynthesis
• My portion of our Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game collection
XenoShyft: Onslaught


There are also games that I don’t think they would want but I couldn’t be bothered going to the effort of moving them across the vast land of Australia (or worse, overseas!) and so might consider selling just before I leave, but I’m not going to list them here for risk of upsetting the designers who worked hard on them.

I know, I know! I said I’d leave Devastation of Indines with my partner, but this one is lighter and smaller, and most importantly, cheaper, so I could justify having it to suggest to visitors even if they might not play it.

THIS is specifically for the people I’ll meet who have a very stereotyped view of board games but are willing to give me the chance to show them just how varied board games can be.

This is a staple board game in my opinion. I wouldn’t feel right not having a copy in my house.

A game that I think could make a great icebreaker while a socially inept introvert tries to make new friends in an unfamiliar city.

My dad is not a fan of board games, but they love Formula One, so this is one of the only board games I’m comfortable suggesting to them. I’d probably repurchase it if they said they were coming to visit, so that their stay wasn’t just a series of awkward silences.

My favourite hidden movement game, but as it requires at least one other willing human to play (as hidden movement games tend to do) and has a fairly lengthy playtime, I’d definitely hold off purchasing it until I found someone enthusiastic about trying it.

I adore this game and importantly, it can be played solo! So I can buy it even if I don’t find a single soul willing to play board games with me.

This is definitely a game I’d get because it’s quick, easy to learn, and appeals even to people who don’t play tabletop games. (Though if I’m being honest, I might just write the roles on some blank cards and download the app to save me a few bucks).

Another of my favourites, and a game I can play solo if need be. Plus, I’d definitely make another copy of Shino to add in.

Now, I don’t know which sets I would get exactly. I think I’d likely get the Alliances, or maybe the Master Set. But as this is a fairly strategy-heavy game, I certainly wouldn’t buy it until I found someone willing to play it with me.

This is an easy-to-understand game that would be great to play with both regular board gamers and people who are like “Yeah I guess board games are pretty fun, I’ll play one with you.”

One of my favourite worker placement games, but its competitive and complex nature means that unless I find other people who regularly play board games in my new city, it might not ever get played. But if I do find such people, I’ll definitely be buying this.
