Top 5 Tiger Games

Happy New Year! In the Chinese zodiac, this is the year of the tiger. So how about some board games you could play with tigers in them?

  1. Endangered – with a giant tiger face on the front of the box! We are big fans of this cooperative game.
  2. Animal Kingdoms – win the favor of various animal rulers in this area control game. (Animal Kingdoms: Roar & Write also has tigers, but is a bit more complicated to get started with.)
  3. Honga – Honga is a cute saber-tooth tiger in this action-selection game for all ages. Will you pet Honga with one of your actions, or risk him taking away your stuff?
  4. The Huntress in Dice Throne Season Two – she has an animal companion named Nyra who is a tiger.
  5. Onitama – One of the movement cards is Tiger.

Now let’s get a bit sillier…

  1. Cow, Tiger, Santa Claus – it’s in the name! Tiger is one of the “medium” difficulty objects to search for in this car-trip game.
  2. Calico – with a beautiful orange tiger… striped cat. Housecats are tigers in their hearts, right?
  3. Isle of Cats – rescue these beautiful cats!
