Millions upon millions of new fans have begun to join their friends in real life for a fun game of Pandemic, 7 Wonders, or Ticket to Ride. The Everything Tabletop Games Book shows how to play some of the best tabletop games in the world, from classic strategy games like Settlers of Catan to great new games like Gloomhaven. Throughout the book, you'll learn the different genres of tabletop and board games; how to play each game; rules and strategies to help you win; and even where to play online--including new expansions to keep your favorite games fresh and exciting.
