As the nights draw in so the board games come out. Really enjoyed this one , we hadn’t played it for ages. A cooperative game of escape from the desert. Great fun but we didn’t make it. I am looking for suggestions for new games that might have gone unnoticed by me, recommendations welcome.
I've started playing 'Undaunted Normandy' , quick to set up and play and with lots of tactical choices .ReplyDelete
I had a look and will probably invest when the solo expansion comes out.Delete
We've been playing Flamme Rouge a bicycle racing game. Games last about 30 minuets. For us not much talking during the game but a very animated discussion about strategy and card draw as we shuffle and set up the next race.ReplyDelete
I have this and agree that it is an excellent game.Delete
I have enjoyed Undaunted:North Africa as a fairly quick skirmish game.ReplyDelete
Village Green is a good, quite simple card game.
Mint Works is excellent and has been reissued.
I have "The Crew" which is a cooperative trick taking game based on missions in space but haven't had a chance to play it yet.
My boardgames group have been playing a lot of Architects of the West Kingdom which is a worker placement game with lots of elements and different ways of approaching the game...
Thanks for the suggestions I shall check them out…Delete
Trailer Park Wars... and get it with an extra bag of pink flamingoes.ReplyDelete
Trust me, Alan. You and the girls will get a big laugh out of it.
You can get it from Amazon. I have it. My group loves it.
This looks great fun and one I shall get soon.Delete
There are so many it's hard to give recommendations, but I'll mention a few:ReplyDelete
Wingspan (about birds, with some great art)
I second Architects of the West Kingdom (and other Garphill/Shem Philips games)
I also like Above and Below, Near and Far, and Islebound, all by Ryan Laukat and Red Raven Games
Canvas (a card game about making paintings)
Interesting suggestions I will check them out too.Delete
The card game "Exploding Kittens". Fabulous fun but requires devious strategy.ReplyDelete
Sounds intriguing , especially from a ailurophile.Delete
Hahaha! Must admit I had to look that up but so pleased to know now.Delete
For ailurophiles I'd also suggest Isle of Cats and Crazy Cat Lady. No kittens harmed. ha haDelete
