Astrology Zodiac Signs and Board Games

Astrology Zodiac Signs and Board Games

Ever wonder if certain board games were ‘made’ for you? Based off our personality we all have our own zodiac signs with their very own strengths and weaknesses. Each sign represents desires and attitudes towards life and people. I went on and found board games that I think better suits each sign by analyzing the projection of each person’s profile and compatibility.  Although astrology is just a bunch of stars and positioning of planets, I think it would be fun to think that nothing in life is coincidental. Maybe our favorite games are particular to who we are? Enjoy some of my family favorite board games. Below is what I think to be how our astrology zodiac signs and board games that correlate.

Aries – March 21 to April 19

An Aries wants fast, they are energetic, they are continuously looking for competition. They will always be the first in everything. Impulsive and confident, they will always proudly make moves and take actions that would’ve taken you a lot more time to decide on. Burning the candle on both ends? No, just taking a blowtorch to a dinner candle.

 Hare and the Tortoise– This was an easy decision  because it came to my mind instantly and I felt I’d impulsively place it here without thinking twice about it. They want fast, these racers go top speed. They want competition, nothing says that more than reaching a finish line. Being an Aries loves individual sports, It only makes sense that racing would be their style of gaming. Bravery contorts their role as a gamer into taking choices that would make the others cringe, but the victory outcome will be jaw dropping.


Taurus – April 20 – May 20

Powerful and Reliable. A Taurus is definitely in reign for conservatism. They appreciate what they have and are notable for being devoted. They will never turn a project aside until it has been completed. I think what makes a board gamer out of a Taurus is their stubbornness, They’ll be patient, but they’ll know what they are doing and never find themselves off the rails with the rules.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesAgricola– and easy summary of this hard working sign is Agricola. They will work hard for what they need and will enjoy their outcome. I felt a Worker Placement is their signs board game mechanic because a Taurus is resourceful and I think it can easily be reflected with that mechanic. Agricola specifically relies on growth from nothing. Their is a passion that a Taurus can appreciate in growing a farm from ‘nothing to something’ and I find Taurus will easily make their mark and earn their way to victory. Being each turn exercises just a few actions, a Taurus will be on you like a bull if you don’t play it correctly.


Gemini – May 21 – June 21

Gemini’s are scary, especially when brought to game night. They represent two different sides to a person and are always adapt to their climate with ease. They can be socially exciting or serious when necessary. While gentle and affectionate, they learn to exchange and change their ideas when it’s necessary. They are forever seeking new friends being a two part sign. So, I think you may see where this is going.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesCoup– It wouldn’t make sense to choose any other board game. Coup has a bit of everything that makes a Gemini a Gemini in a small little box. They have the ability to represent themselves anyway they’d like in order to deceive everyone else. They need something new to interact with? Well, these cards come and go as often as we breathe. Versatility is viable for Coup, otherwise you’ll be dead quicker than an assassin can get the funds to use their action. Coup is easily their astrology zodiac signs and board games comparison.


Cancer – June 21 – July 22

Cancer’s are typically very deep people. They are intuitive and sentimental, we can find they are emotional and sensitive and are very attached to the people around them. They are empathetic and very loyal to people. Which in a way, could be used to their benefit, they are also very persuasive people. Being able to articulate calculated plans and exercise a very interesting expertise in selfishness and manipulation. I found that their personality when summed up can be an easy astrology zodiac signs and board games comparison.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesBomb Squad– This is an easy choice for Cancer because it distributes every quality of a cancer into a cooperative and timely experience. Their attachment toward people can be the determination your team needs in order to rescue every hostage. Their persuasion will ensure that your team won’t rely on impulse in order to attempt a win. Your loyalty provides your team a bit of air as they expect you (and you will) to guide them to victory.


Leo – July 23 -August 22

Leo’s are natural born leaders to say the least. They are self confident, dominant, difficult to resist, and most importantly play the role of the board gamer for heavy games. Being great problem solvers, nothing is ever to difficult for them–but if it is, they’ll love making sure it isn’t. While not arrogant, they are fantastic at evolving their ways to win. Leaning toward being in better moods than not, It’s advisable that if you want to play a heavy board game, find yourself some Leo’s to venture with you.

astrology zodiac signs and board games7 Wonders– Nothing says ‘depth’ and ‘adventure’ like 7 Wonders. Keep in mind playing 7 Wonders with a Leo will easily pit you against the most modest winners out there. They’ll remember every card in rotation and calculate their choices accordingly. Being in a good mood, I’d assume it’s not common to see a Leo win through a domination victory. So, they’ll probably run a victory in other ways. The strategy in this game and the amount of components makes for this to be just the game a Leo needs to stay involved and interested. May they not have expected your awesome power play? They’ll figure it out, but until they do, don’t expect to see them flinch a hair toward it.


Virgo – August 23 – September 22

Virgo’s are great to play board games with because they are very practical and loyal. You will never find a cheater in this group and they will always work hard toward the goal. They are the most careful of the signs being involved in any specific details in order to plan a bigger picture. They will keep everything organized at a personal level meaning, whether they are untidy or not, they know exactly where everything is. Being so attentive to detail, they find themselves indulging in a very creative lifestyle in both the English and Communication arts.

Patchworkastrology zodiac signs and board games– I don’t think I could have found a better suiter than this. Virgo’s strive in personalized organization, which is why they’ll unorthodox looking grid will make sense after they win the game. Their attention to detail will have it so each move will be understandable after they’ve finished it.  We will see them shoot for every bonus and grab at every bit of button they can. I think what’s fun about Virgo and their Patchwork relation is how table flipping it’ll feel when they win without you ever seeing how it’ll happen. They are always planning for the bigger picture.


Libra – September 23 – October 22

Libra’s are an interesting bunch of people. Diplomatic and peaceful individuals who enjoy a fair and victorious experience. They are for sure the most codependent group of individuals as they can not stand being alone. They will gravitate toward harmony in whatever it is they are doing and will like to share that experience with others. The inspiration in Libra’s alone create envy in people. With a drive for justice and equality these individuals expect to be involved in something that provides a morality choice within the group. They are the least conflicting of the bunch.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesLibra’s would most likely enjoy Dead of Winter. Dead of Winter pits all players into the same situation, survive and survive together. They will always ensure that the supplies never deplete or that the medicine is plenty. Each round they’ll shoot for victory among anything thrown in their way. When given a betrayer, you will be surprised by how fast they 180% all evil doers. They strive for justice and victory and that is exactly what you’ll get with them in this game.


Scorpio – October 23 – November 21

A Scorpio can be summed up by being passionate, resourceful, and assertive. They make good decisions and are always determined to find the truth. They are great leaders and have a tendency to interpret emotions different from the rest. They are easily, the best players for seeking out any rats in a situation. Dedication makes them mercenaries at rule books, and they may appear to be easily adaptable to any human behaviors.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesCodenames instill the magic of adaptability and resourcefulness with every card they need to describe or choose. The cooperative examples in this game are easy for Scorpio’s. You’ll find they know exactly what to say in order to describe their cards and know exactly what to choose when their partner is describing cards. What makes them so good? They can adapt to peoples ways easily. They’ll understand right away that ‘coin’ could describe both pirate AND pound (because they’ll think of British currency).


Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21

A Sagittarius is easily the most humours of the bunch. We would find a Sagittarius making light of any situation. They are idealist, but with a dreamer persona. We can find them always searching for more in life. They are extroverted and love when change happens because of how quickly they can transform.

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/157969/sheriff-nottinghamSheriff of Nottingham– Our Sagittarius friends are great at deception because they know exactly how to find the fun and thrill in winning. The constant search for more ensure you will always catch these people sneaking in a few golden apples when they specified their bag only has but 3 regular apples. The communication expected in this game is at an all time high placing them to be the life of the Nottingham party. But what I find to be the closer to this choice is their enjoyment of change, every turn places the Sheriff into a new pair of hands. Meaning the strategy must change, their decisions must change, and their conversation must change. They’ll love every second of it.


Capricorn – December 22 – January 19

A Capricorn is driven by organization, discipline, and responsibility. They are an absolute perfectionist and are always critiquing themselves– which explains their great self-control. Most of the time the strive for excellence and will always prove they are right. Stirn in their ways, a Capricorn never admits when they are wrong. They are traditionalists and appreciate the authenticity of all things classic.

astrology zodiac signs and board gamesCatan– While being an absolute classic this game has been the gateway to a lot of our players out there (including me). Capricorns can appreciate and understand that the quality of Catan proves this to be an absolute perfect title. Each decision in Catan always seems to be an end all and I found this title to be very stressfully strategic. Even when a move they made was the worst move, they’ll own it like they knew exactly what they were doing. Self-control is especially necessary for this game as it could take 1 move to ruin it all.


Aquarius – January 20 – February 18

Aquarius often times are shy and quiet, however teamwork runs deep in their sign. You can find them often solving problems and helping other in order to restore victory from any former losses from the rounds before. Without mental stimulation; Aquarius might find themselves becoming bored and unmotivated. That is why I believe they’re prone to having their astrology zodiac signs and board games matching up in the sense that it must be cooperative and strategic.

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/157969/sheriff-nottinghamPandemic Legacy I feel is perfect for Aquarius. With their strong dislike toward limitations, it’s easy to suggest Legacy over the original because It provides players with far more to lose, and an ongoing project of seasons to prepare for. They’ll be fighting for a cause that is distinguishably a humanists cause, versus other titles that may fight for other causes. Aquarius are great listeners, critical thinkers, and great with big groups, I saw Pandemic Legacy’s emphasis on strategy and cooperative gaming as a clear sign that this would satisfy every aspect of an Aquarius’ personality.


Pisces – February 19- March 20

A Pisces typically enjoys independently stimulating activities. We find that they involve themselves in visually, musically, and artistically engaging things. They are selfless yet enjoy their alone time which can be interpreted into being a bit more passive while not necessarily working alongside anyone.
astrology zodiac signs and board gamesI felt that a Pisces perfect board game is Dixit. I find Dixit to be very non confrontational in the sense that the game relies on almost silent polls deciding who the active player’s card is. Pisces dislike being criticized or any cruelty of any sort; Dixit relies on phrases and beautiful artwork to prove a point. Speaking of artwork, this game high lights the important personality quirk that all Pisces have–a respects for the arts. This game is almost always brought up into conversation when mentioning board game aesthetics.
