#1. Memoir ’44

Memoir '44 Board Game

Starting on D-Day and based on real-life WWII battles, Memoir ’44 is one of the most accessible war games out there. In this 2-player board game, play out a series of battles from 1944, achieving tactical objectives and maneuvering troops to (perhaps) turn the tide of history.

If dad is a history buff or a fan of war board games, this is a perfect one to try one-on-one for some historical quality time together.

#2. Risk: Legacy

Risk: Legacy Board Game

Risk: Legacy is one of the first-ever legacy board games. In this campaign-style game, the actions you take and the decisions you make in one game will affect future games. Rather than racing with other players to be the first to take over the world as in traditional Risk, in this version, players embark on shorter, more tactical campaigns to occupy other players’ HQs.

Manipulate the board, making permanent changes as your factions compete to complete objectives, create strongholds, and found new cities. Grab dad and up to 3 others to get started on this strategic building and conquering campaign!

#3. Dominion (Second Edition)

Dominion Board Game

Dominion is one of my favorite games and is just an all-around great deck-builder. There are so many possibilities when you combine the many Dominion expansions. My favorites are Dark Ages, Prosperity, and Seaside!

Spend some quality time with dad this Father’s Day, creating different combinations of decks to claim your dominion (and earn the most victory points).

#4. Sherlock Homes Consulting Detective

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Single Player Board Game

If dad is a book lover, Sherlock Holmes aficionado, or a fan of the mystery genre – there is no better board game gift than Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. This series of cooperative board games give players the chance to step into the shoes of the greatest detective of all time and solve a mystery using their own intellect and deductive reasoning (with teamwork, of course).

Get the whole family together to piece together clues, question suspects, and become real detectives with this immersive board game!

#5. Red Dragon Inn

The Red Dragon Inn Fantasy Game

So your dad is a fan of fantasy who also doesn’t mind a cold beer at the end of the day? In that case, Red Dragon Inn might be just the ticket. Not only is this game a hilarious time, inspired by Dungeons & Dragons, but it also has tons of expansions to keep the party going.

The object of the game is to be the last one standing (with money) at the end of the night after a lot of drinking, gambling, and celebrating at the inn. Party hard but keep your wits about you so as not to get robbed by your friends! Dad will be cracking up as he cracks open his next beer with this funny fantasy frolic.

#6 Gamer Gear

If you’re still unsure of what to give your dad on father’s day, why not upgrade his morning coffee or gaming sessions with board game themed mugs or shirts. Our friends at Meeple Design have created a ton of board game themed gifts and gear that are perfect for gifts.
