“A Eurogame, also called German-style board game, German game, or Euro-style game, is any of a class of tabletop games that generally have simple rules, short to medium playing times, indirect player interaction and abstract physical components. Such games emphasize strategy, downplay luck and conflict, lean towards economic rather than military themes, and usually keep all the players in the game until it ends.

Eurogames are sometimes contrasted with American-style board games, which generally involve more luck, conflict, and drama.”

These aren’t roll the dice, move your mice games. They are games of strategy and figuring things out. Here you will find games like Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Elfenland, Five Tribes and Puerto Rico.
