Top 3 games for X and why

Going to try something a little different for this weeks #boardgamehour. Almost all board game media does some kind of top 10 / 5 lists and I felt like it was time you had the chance to do the same. As we are on Twitter and only have an hour, I thought it best to stick with top 3, but I hope it will be fun!

So this week we are doing "Top 3 games for X"

Monday 22nd August 2016 questions are:

Q1: What are your top 3 games for dice lovers, why?
Q2: What are your top 3 games for sci-fi fans, why?
Q3: What are your top 3 games for history buffs, why?
Q4: What are your top 3 games for liars, why?
Q5: What are your top 3 games for giving as gifts, why?
Q6: What are your top 3 games for relexing, why?
Q7: What are your top 3 games for a whole day of gaming, why?
Q8: What are your top 3 games for sports fans, why?
Q9: What are your top 3 games for burning your brain with, why?
Q10: What are your top 3 games for playing with your family, why?
Q11: What are your top 3 games for putting in the bin, why?
