The Best Board Games For 2019

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season's best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET. A brand-new generation of video game consoles are expected to arrive next year -- exciting news for game lovers -- but it's not much help when it comes to the 2019 holiday shopping season. But board games have been been gaining momentum for the past couple of years and are enjoying something of a creative renaissance.

Tabletop gaming is now just this side of mainstream, and it's come a long way since the classics that defined an industry, such as Clue and Monopoly. Many now involve detailed problem-solving skills, hand-eye coordination or complex strategy, ultimately redefining the parameters of what it is that makes a great game. With variations of play styles and rules for many tabletop games, some with options for additional card expansion packs, the best board games aren't just fun for children. They also present an exciting challenge for serious gamers.

The themes are, not surprisingly, often focused on Dungeons & Dragons-style fantasy, sci-fi battles, zombie attacks, and Lovecraftian supernatural high jinks. Some popular board games, such as the recent Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-Earth, combine miniature figures, map tiles and a highly polished tablet app that handles some of the card and combat management for you. 

Here are some of the best board games for 2019, any one of which can turn game night into an epic adventure. Feel ambitious and want to make your own extra accessories, game pieces or card holders with a 3D printer? We've got that covered, too.

Got your own suggestions? Let me know your board game picks in the comments or on Twitter.

Zombicide: Invader
CMON The latest version of this zombie-filled game series takes the action of a far-off mining colony, where zombie-like aliens team up with big boss monsters straight out of Doom. One to six players fight back, usually by collecting some McGuffins and making for the exit as swarms of xenos flood the map. This party game is great fun that's easy to pick up and learn.

CNET/Dan Ackerman The cult classic comic gets a great game packed with comic-style art, great miniatures and lots of storytelling. The more-expensive collector's edition ups the number of minis past 100, and includes a great idea I'd love to see more often: A random mission generator for endless mix-and-match scenarios. 

See at Walmart Minecraft: Builders and Biomes
Ravensburger There have been a handful of Minecraft card and board games before, but this new one -- revealed at Minecon 2019 -- feels like the most ambitious yet. You actually mine for resources with tiny wooden blocks, and combine building with fighting mobs. 

See at Amazon Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-Earth
Fantasy Flight Games It's time to get the fellowship back together. This is a great game for joining up with four other players (or just as a solo player) to go tromping across Middle-Earth by moving cool-looking sculpted miniatures around map tiles. There's a free, but mandatory, app available on iOS, Android and via Steam, which tells you how to lay out the map tiles and which monsters to fight. It also provides for a certain amount of randomization. Built from the ground up as an app-based board game, it makes it easy to get set up and learn the ropes. 

See at Amazon Mansions of Madness
Dan Ackerman/CNET Another giant-box game. This is one of my favorites because it includes tons of floor tiles you can use to create a haunted mansion, plus dozens of plastic miniatures for investigators and monsters. The vibe is definitely classic Lovecraft, and this board game actually requires you to use its companion app, which creates the layout, spawns monsters and even adds sound effects. 

See at Walmart Horrified
Dan Ackerman I've been playing an early version of this Universal Monsters-inspired game, which hit stores at the beginning of August. It's a fun mix of nostalgia and modern game design, pitting players against all the classic Universal movie monsters of the 1940s and poker online '50s, from the Wolf Man to Dracula. Just don't accidentally call Frankenstein's Monster "Frankenstein," or I'll subtweet you. 

See at Amazon Star Wars: Imperial Assault
Dan Ackerman/CNET The best Star Wars game I've played in years isn't a video game -- it's this fun and challenging tabletop strategy game, where rebel heroes fight through various skirmishes with Imperial forces. There's a fantastic companion app that not only teaches you how to play, but handles the storytelling and enemy placement, too, so you don't have to make a guess. The miniatures are fantastic, and include a giant AT-S. Add-ons and expansions are on sale separately and can add dozens of new figures. Fun fact -- this is actually a remixed version of a game called Descent: Journeys in the Dark, so check that out if you want a game that plays like Imperial Assault, but with a Dungeons & Dragons or Game of Thrones-style fantasy theme.

Dan Ackerman Get those "gonna need a bigger boat" jokes out of your system now. This clever new two-part strategy game is asymmetrical, which means one player is the overpowered super-shark, and the other players are hapless humans, who need to combine their strategic thinking, skills and resources with the goal to survive and win. The best feature is the game board, which flips from the beaches of Amity Island in the first half, to Quint's boat in the second half, which slowly gets eaten by the shark. 

See at Walmart Resident Evil 2
Steamforged Games As a long-time Resident Evil fan, I had to snatch this up immediately. Like many big box board games, it started as a Kickstarter project, but is now available from Amazon and other retailers. Unlike arcade-y zombie games like Zombicide, the vibe here is much closer to the survival horror feel of the Resident Evil video games. If you have a 3D printer, there are a ton of accessories, including 3D walls, doors and typewriters, which you can download and print to replace the cardboard tokens that come with the game. 

See at Amazon Arkham Horror: The Card Game
Dan Ackerman/CNET A stripped-down version of the Lovecraftian game subgenre. This is strictly a card-based game, so there are no map tiles or plastic game pieces. Even so, it has amazing narrative storytelling, which involves laying out location cards on the table to give each player a clear picture of what's going on and where. If you like this, it's a "living card game," which means new packs of cards are released on a regular basis.
