Carcassonne, trust me on this one. It's got enough randomness factor, strategy, and tactics.
Can people read your mind? Probably not, but why chance it.
Now, you all may be asking yourselves, your sweet sweet hot selves, what do boardgames have to do with art... well everything. That's more of a philisophical statement as all is art, especially favorites. Favorites are so artful, but I'm getting off track a bit. That always happens, psych!
Okay so the rules are simple enough to teach and learn, there are videos, watch them.
Uhm, yeah. I just really like this game. Other games I like are settlers and twilight struggle. Those can be cheated though.
