Lists of the 10 Board Games


1. Bushido

Tony: A game that I didn’t expect to like as much as I did. Bushido is a duel game in which two player compete against each other in a samurai action. While the game uses dice to drive its moves, the strategy is handled by a five-card hand that is drawn at the middle of the game (from a deck of more than 30 cards) and your choice of weapon. Bushido is easy to learn, has a tight gameplay and offer a high replay value.

2. Wingspan

Andrew: Although my heavy-loving heart is not necessarily the target audience of Wingspan, it somehow became one of my most played games of the year. He has obviously won more than a few awards and rightly so. It’s accessible, beautiful, and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun to play. Seeing some bird cards that will soon turn into a point production and egg laying machine is the kind of interaction I can leave behind.

3. The Lord of the Rings: Travels to Middle-Earth

Tony: The publishing house Fantasy Flight Games has done a great job in creating a cooperative adventure game set in this popular fantasy universe. The card-based gameplay in Journeys into Middle Earth feels fresh, and the built-in digital app does a good job of not getting in the way while helping to run the game, so no player has to be the “master of the game”.” I’m looking forward to seeing what this line has in store for us in the future.

4. The Corrupted Grail: The Fall of Avalon

Tony: This relatively new version of the Awaken Realms Editor is a campaign-style game where player explore the island of Avalon and try to face the many challenges that the game offer them. The action/diplomacy mechanic by
es the dice for a completely unique card and symbol system. Add to this the excellent production values and the fact that the stories that the game presents are quite fascinating, and you have a game that asks to come to the table often. This game would actually be further up the list, but I’ve only been able to play it a few times. I am looking forward to delving deeper into its secrets.
