Pandemic is my personal favorite. In this game you MUST work together if you want any chance of winning, and even then, chances may be slim. Four diseases have broken out and spread across the globe, and it's up to you and your friends of unique talents to quarantine them before it turns into a...(wait for it)...pandemic. There are seven (or five, depending on which edition you use) different roles (such as a medic, scientist and operations specialist) that can be played that all have their own special abilities, but there can only be one of each in play.
On each turn, a player will use up to four actions to move across the map, treat infections, discover a cure, or build a research station. However, throughout the game diseases will intensify, and because life ain't easy, every now and then you'll run into an Epidemic! card, which is when things will get a little crazy. For maximum fun, play on the hardest level. If you start feeling discouraged about not saving the world in time, feel free to switch it to easy the next time around, but I promise losing this game usually ends up being a lot more fun than winning.
Munchkin is a card game that, like Dungeons and Dragons, you're going on a dungeon adventure, killing monsters and picking up loot to make yourself even more badass. You can even choose a class and race. Each monster you kill earns you another level, but the other players can thwart your mission by making that monster stronger, or even throwing down another monster for you to fight along with it.

What's great about this game that it doesn't include any of those time consuming things like building your stat sheetMunchkin is a card game that, like Dungeons and Dragons, you're going on a dungeon adventure, killing monsters and picking up loot. What's great about it is that it doesn't include any of those time consuming things like building your stat sheet/rolling dice before walking five steps/everything that makes pen and paper games take so long. You can work together or act as a lone wolf, but at the end of the game their can only be one true Munchkin.
Tiny Dice Dungeon
The fighting couldn't be more simple. Upon entering battle your dice, which decide how strong your attack is, will start rolling. Yaou can click all of them or just one, but here's the catch - if you roll a 1 then your turn is over without any form of attack made. Your foes will try to attack you in the same manner, but can also lose their turn just as easily. It can be very satisfying to watch, as they build a massive attack only for it to slip away. Aside from throwing dice around, you can train your new monster buddies that join your party, build new dice to make yourself even more deadly, and other various things. One of the best things about this game is that it's free! It also has really catchy tunes, so download it today!
