Yeah, the Monopoly is a great board game too! But it takes at least few hours of playing and isn't that much fun for only two players... So, for this game, more players = more fun. ?Either Monopoly or Starcraft the Board Game. Check it out, the SC board game is really amazing.
I like Chess games but unfortunately I am not good at it. When I watch genius play the game I am thrilled. The good Chess players I have met seem not to have the patience to teach a novice.Me too. One of my favorite board game is chess. For me it is one of a kind board game where you can think what your strategy is and how to win by sacrificing other pieces like a movies I watched about war.
I am not familiar with the Hero Realms but I think its an interesting board game also.
You can see reactions of the other person easily as you play in person. However if you are a local champion you may be eager to play other champions and the easiest way to meet champions from other part of the world is via playing online.It's better to play board games in person not in a mobile or computer. You can see the reaction of you opponent when you make a move or you beat him/her.
My favorite board game is Game of the Generals. It's very strategic and fun to play.
