Go is way more complex then Chess
Comment from : Maximillian Santiago

Kidding me? Monopoly is the most luck dependend lucky luck game. Of course there's strategy... if the damn dices are not against you. A game with strategy is a game without dice.

This list is a load of garbage. You have just listed top selling board games. Basically Catan and Ticket to Ride are the only somewhat strategic ones and Chess is God. However, this doesn't consider beautiful games that can be found in small stores which are often best.

List is downright embarrassing.
Comment from : Radioactive Ali

I know I’m a year late on bashing this video but I gotta put my 2 cents in! This video is just vomiting well known outdated games. Chess is the only one that rightfully belongs here, maybe Go.

“Roll and move on a linear track” (Monopoly) is the worst game mechanism ever devised and is part of what created the term “Ameritrash.”

If Watch Mojo puts this much effort into all of their videos then I can no longer trust any video they put out.

Watch Mojo, if you need a board game expert I’m for hire.

International checkers beats chess. Catan is decided begoten the first roll. Monopoly is not strategic, a string of games might be.

Game of the Generals
Comment from : Jasper Howell Sibal

I'm a bit late to the game on this one, but for some reason it popped up on my feed. I'm not sure weather to laugh or cry about this.
Sadly I believe this is an accurate representation of how most people view boardgames. So, to the intended target audience, this list is at least understandable.

Whenever i tell someone I play boardgames, invariably their first words are: "Sooo...like... Monopoly?"

I think if a person with an average background sat down and watched a modern strategy heavy boardgame being played, it would blow their mind.

The arguments in the comments section are hilarious, the people defending Monopoly think that their ground black peppercorn is spicy, when the hobby gamers know that TI4 and Gaia Project are like damn strategy ghost peppers. But if you never tasted anything spicier than black pepper, well, then it may be difficult to comprehend why those elitist pricks are laughing at you.

Andy McGuire
As an avid boardgamer, I find this piss poor video both hilarious and insulting at the same time. More than half of these are your basic classic Milton Bradly/Parker Bros. bullshit. Do they even know about the massive board game renaissance that is going on? Dice Tower, Boardgamegeek.com, Gencon, Essen, AEG, literally anything else?!?!

This video is a joke. Monopoly requires strategy yes, but that strategy revolves around luck. If you get bad luck strategy isn’t going to help you. Do real research and make real content.

Monopoly!?!? Risk!?!? You people at WatchMojo are idiots! Worse, you didn’t just say “games that require strategy,” you said LOTS of strategy! You clearly have never known what the word means if you put Monopoly on this list. Also, not one game on this list includes something you have to buy at a real game store. These are all WalMart games.

Dan Vercruysse
Many of these board games are not comparable to real board game players. This list in video game terms would be like a list of Gameboy games compared to PS4 games of 2019. Not a true board game player had a single input on this. Twilight Imperium is the new Risk, Monopoly is very old and the new Monopoly is Terraforming Mars. Please do more research next time. Try starting with Boardgamegeek.com

Interestingly, the Brits used Monopoly to hide important items in order to help POWs escape. A great story to look up.
Comment from : Jude Samson

This list is appalling trash. Only Risk, Chess and Go can be considered strategic on this list.

As many people stated this should be "top ten games you can buy at Walmart that are more strategic than hungry hungry hippos.

Try Blood Rage, Twilight Imperium, Evolution, Root, Terraforming Mars, Pandemic basically anything that isn't roll to move completely random zero strategy trash.

I'm surprised snakes and ladders didn't appear on your list. A game that's 100% luck of the dice and barely even an activity.

Fuck you watch mojo and your misleading shovelware anti content. Puerto Rico was an honourable mention and it's more strategic than basically the entire list!

It's because of shitty lists like this people don't realize board games are actually awesome rewarding experiences and not just rage inducing sewage like fucking monopoly. A game that has NO RIGHT to be successful a the how shit it is on a factual inarguably level.

Jason Sesta
You should be ashamed of this video and pull it ASAP......just wow. Most of these aren’t even legit board games in the modern sense. I do think a couple of games like TtR, Carcassonne, Go, and Chess are good enough for the purposes of a mainstream audience. At least those are strategy games. The rest...not so much.

Monopoly is almost completely random. Strategy only plays a small role. There are tens of thousands of modern board games that require a lot more strategy. Please get with the times, WatchMojo.

Monopoly at number 7? It shouldn't even be the damn thumbnail. There is little to no strategy in monopoly. You control next to nothing, luck does. Terrible list.

I'd hate to see what would happen if the WatchMojo people played any actual strategic boardgames.  Obviously, no research whatsoever was done into the current boardgaming hobby.  Terrible list.  Only a couple of the games listed on here come anywhere close to even belonging on it, and they (despite being good games) are a complete stretch to say that they are super strategic.  This list is garbage.

Comment from : Tyrus Sleightholme

WTF is this list? Monopoly? Seriously? That game is pure luck. There is no strategy in Monopoly. It's just rolling dice.
And there are far more strategic games then risk, Cranium, Sequence or Scrabbel. For example Terra Mystica, Project Gaia, Scythe, Imperial Assault, Terraforming Mars, Star Wars: Rebellion, Caverna, Twillight Struggle, Twillight Imperium, 7 Wonders or Spirit Island.

It seems the biggest mistake of WM wasn't just the selections, but being completely oblivious to the fact that there's a large community of people who are very invested in the topic, and have spent years researching and participating in the activity (to which I cannot claim to be a part of) and that they are probably going to be the ones watching this particular video. If they had just referenced any of the gamers (not even the most advanced gamers, simply some of the more popular ones, quill18 comes to mind) they would know some of the "must-have" entries for the list which are absent, and above all else knowing the the inclusion of Monopoly is a catastrophic choice; it's the equivalent of including Pee-Wee Herman in a list of "all-time greatest actors." I like some of the suggested choices in the comments such as Pandemic, but am surprised that no one has mentioned Battlestar Galactica: the Board Game. my understanding is that it requires a good amount of strategy and is one of the more engaging games. More advanced gamers: is this not the case?
Comment from : Kip Blass

Replace monopoly with Blokus. How about nim and back gamon, they require more strategy than some of the games on this list. Also there is a diference between games that are pure strategy and games that involve limited amounts of luck.
