I find Viticulture very relaxing.

Honestly any chance to game is relaxing and fun for me. I don’t need to play any specific sort of game. Although I probably would avoid XCOM or similar real time games. Lol.

Any chance that's how I feel.  But I do have to say Western Legends helps me relax in the sense that there is a lot of table talk in between turns.  I think it's fairly simple and your strategy is always open but not too focused.

Preach! lol

I can agree with this. When I'm maxed out in stress or anxiety or something, I can play a game and it all dissipates. I find board games veery therapeutic. Perhaps not real-time games like FUSE or Flatline though. Those tend to get my heart pumping instead. haha

I'm going to have to try Western Legends

Western Legends is great. I love the open-world/sandbox aspect of it. Sure, you're still somewhat limited in what you can do (it is a board game, after all), but it doesn't feel like you're that limited :)  Very fun, and I can see how it could be relaxing.

Me too. It gets mentioned a ton.

I’ve really been enjoying Parks while playing nature sounds in the background. Very relaxing

Sounds wonderful! I'd love to play this game with that background. I'm sure a similar nature sounds could be used for Wingspan with good results too.

Tokaido! It's simple to play and everything you do is fun and gets you points! I mean, its all about having the most relaxing vacation so... that's got to count for something.

This is my answer too! I always tell people it's the game I go to when I need to relax haha I usually lose, but I don't even care! It's all about thee journey, and I definitely enjoy it.

Fun story: I brought this to work a few years back and played it with some coworkers during lunch. Well, one of them took a trip to Japan shortly thereafter (already planned before we played) and took a video of him dropping some coins in a temple donation box in tribute to the game haha

You read my mind with Tokaido.  

I'm not always in the mood for it but I keep it on my shelf because sometimes you just want a nice little vacation. :)
