The Best of European Board Games

Updated on June 20, 2015

People say that European games have lots of strategy to them. So here are some popular ones up for discussion.

Give you suggestions and add your comments to help people decide if they'd like to try some of these.

Settlers of Catan

One of the most popular European board games, this game of trade strategy takes place on a board that is created anew every time, giving each player different access to resources. It’s cerebral but still fast-moving, and games are exciting all the way to the end.

explanation of rules and game play


A tile-based German-style board game for two to five players. Complete cities, cloisters, and roads and get points.

Power Grid

Power Grid is the updated release of the Friedemann Friese crayon game Funkenschlag.

Power Grid puts each player in control of a utility company looking to supply electricity to an ever-growing network of customers.


In Agricola, you're a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions, one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you'll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences; and so on.

      I haven't heard of Power Grid or Agricola before. But I've found European games to be some of the best so these are worth looking into. Carcassonne is by far one of my favorites!
