In this week’s roundup of the best board games, we’ve got some pretty addicting games for you. Whether you are a travel enthusiast or a die-hard fan of card games, there is a game that will transport you here.
Immersive board games always amaze us with their attention to detail. Whether it’s intricate gameplay elements, a gripping storyline, or intense gameplay, these components create depth. It is what attracts players and keeps them playing for hours.
In this week’s roundup of the best board games, we feature engaging board games that have everything from creative dairies to 3D globes. So let’s go ahead and check them out.
Do you like cheese? Discover Dairy. It is an engine building game where you create strange varieties of cheese in a custom factory. You will follow unique recipes and select 1 of the 4 main chefs to help you, each with a unique skill. And sometimes, even light the cheese fire!
The goal of the game is to win 20 points, which you earn by inventing strange cheeses. In each turn, you get 3 actions. You can use any combination of actions to create your own cheese which earns points.
Meanwhile, you can build machines that give you stackable powers throughout the game. To move forward, you can even start fires that destroy your opponents’ cars. It is a game of strategy, luck and creative recipes that will appeal to anyone over the age of 14.
You can pre-order Cheese Factory for around $ 25 on Kickstarter.
A game focused on artistic ego and auction sales, Skyrise tasks you with creating a magnificent city in the sky inspired by science, art and beauty. You are a creative visionary, you build buildings of your own design as well as those inspired by the art of your native land.
Although the gameplay is simple and easy to understand, it is actually quite complex as you make tough decisions while playing. To get started, you will participate in an auction to win your construction rights using a limited supply of facilities.
So when you construct a building, you gain a faction disc in that district. Each record increases the value of your facilities with Philosophers, Artists, Naturalists or Inventors. As your properties gain prestige, you can win the title of greatest visionary in the city. It’s one of our favorite immersive board games this week.

During the game, you will plan 3 trips in the spring, fall and summer. At each round, add trips to your itineraries and record the cost of the airfare in your passport. The idea is to earn points by deleting destinations from your wish list and catch up with friends while planning a convenient trip.

Finally, a playing surface in edged fabric echoes the design of the box. These details make it one of the most addicting board games we’ve seen this week.
