7 чудес. Дуэль

 

8.6

10.0 Duel is an entirely different game from its predecessor — and many would argue that it’s a better game as well.
9.0 I highly recommend both the base game and the expansion if you’re into two-player games with a bit of heft and a short play time.

 

 

Anachrony

 

9.0

9.0 It is the graphic design and clear iconography that steal the show.

 

 

Apocalypse Chaos

 

5.0

5.0 Excellent attempt at innovation, but this theme-less effort falls a little short in its execution.

 

 

Assault of the Giants

 

7.1

8.0 If you can get past a few warts, Assault of the Giants is an extremely enjoyable, thematic, dudes on a map experience, with more strategy than first meets the eye.
6.0 It’s a mediocre game drowning in an ocean of excellent alternatives.

 

 

Automobile

 

8.0

8.0 Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.

 

 

Barcelona: The Rose of Fire

 

4.0

4.0 As one of my game group members said, perfectly encapsulating the overall experience, “it didn’t light me up”.

 

 

Black Orchestra

 

7.4

8.0 Forces players to work as a team to pull off one lucky and luck-mitigated turn.

 

 

Blend Off!

 

7.0

8.0 I would highly recommend checking it out if you’re looking for a short, fun family game, or if you just really like smoothies.
6.0 Fair. Some fun or challenge at least, will play occasionally if in the right mood.

 

 

Blood Rage

 

8.0

8.5 There is something about the game that makes it oddly unpredictable even though there are no dice.

 

 

Capital Lux

 

7.7

7.0 Good. Usually willing to play.

 

 

Clank!

 

7.8

7.5 Легко, весело, азартно. И не без интересных решений. Для тех, кто ищет декбилдинг с изюминкой и действительно ощутимой темой.

 

 

Coal Baron: The Great Card Game

 

7.5

7.5 Good. Usually willing to play.

 

 

Concordia

 

8.9

9.0 A very good game, which takes artistic license on a game staple, giving it new life.

 

 

Council of Four

 

7.8

8.5 A game with a few significant flaws, but reasonably rectified. Despite those flaws, there is a lot of fun to be had and the game does not wear out its welcome.

 

 

Cube Quest

 

6.0

5.0 It begins strongly, loses speed rapidly, and then eventually plummets off the edge of a table and under the fridge, never to be seen again.

 

 

DOOM: The Board Game

 

8.2

8.6 DOOM sticks true to what makes the franchise so popular

 

 

Da Yunhe

 

5.0

5.0 Average. No significant appeal, take it or leave it.

 

 

Dice Of Crowns

 

7.0

7.0 Good. Usually willing to play.

 

 

Dice Stars

 

6.7

6.0 An enjoyable dice rolling filler game. While the downtime can get a bit long at the higher player counts, Dice Stars is great at 1-2 players.

 

 

Dragoon

 

6.4

7.0 This is a boutique game experience, and one that is more enjoyed through the production values than the game itself.

 

 

Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy

 

9.0

10.0 Eclipse is very much a relevant game, and feels every bit as fresh as a game released this year.

 

 

Elder Sign: Omens of the Deep

 

8.0

8.0 Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.

 

 

Empires: Galactic Rebellion

 

6.0

7.0 For what looks like a complex game, it isn't hard to learn..

 

 

Exposed

 

6.8

6.0 Fair. Some fun or challenge at least, will play occasionally if in the right mood.

 

 

First Orchard

 

6.6

6.6 First Orchard helps young kids with color recognition as well as understanding the basic concepts of rules in games.

 

 

Flag Dash

 

8.0

8.0 Delivers highs, lows and strategy of Capture the Flag.

 

 

Flip City: Wilderness

 

5.0

5.0 Average. No significant appeal, take it or leave it.

 

 

Flying Kiwis

 

7.5

7.5 Good. Usually willing to play.

 

 

Fugitive

 

8.5

9.0 Fugitive is a morsel that leaves you wanting more, if only because it’s so immediately digested.

 

 

Ghost Stories

 

8.5

7.5 A cooperative game unlike any other. It will wear you down, and haunt you in a way you won’t forget.

 

 

Good Cop Bad Cop

 

7.5

8.0 It’s been several years since its release, but this is still a game I keep coming back to and firing off several rounds.

 

 

Grand Prix

 

7.8

8.0 A great, strategic racing game that both scales well and is a lot of fun to play.

 

 

Hansa Teutonica

 

7.8

7.5 It’s hard to say where I put this one. It has enough interesting features that I do want to keep it in my collection, though not so much that I feel the need to come back often. An above average game, but it struggles to make a distinctive mark.

 

 

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle

 

7.9

8.5 Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a great cooperative deckbuilding game that evolves with each new game.

 

 

Herbaceous

 

7.0

7.0 A lovely, aesthetic, and delightfully quick game.

 

 

Hero Realms

 

7.0

9.0 A quick competitive game that does not require you to collect cards by buying endless packs of cards.

 

 

Heroes and Tricks

 

7.0

7.0 Get this game if you’re looking for something light and interesting, as a palette cleanser between heavier games.

 

 

Holmes: Sherlock & Mycroft

 

7.6

8.0 While it won’t satisfy gamers looking to investigate a crime, it does provide a puzzle to noodle on from your chair in 221B Baker Street.

 

 

Incorporated

 

6.0

4.0 A laudable feat from a first time game designer, but ultimately, Incorporated pushes itself for too long for what it is and concentrates its play unevenly during a round.

 

 

Insider

 

8.0

7.0 This is perhaps one of the most compelling logically-inclined social deduction games I’ve encountered. I recommend it.

 

 

Kanagawa

 

8.0

9.0 Kanagawa is a great choice for players, who like less demanding games, but also like their gameplay to have head and tail and interesting theme.

 

 

Kingdomino

 

8.1

9.0 this is T really fun and simple game that’s great for the entire family.
9.0 Kingdomino is a light weight tile laying game with a bit of drafting thrown in for fun.

 

 

Kingsport Festival: The Card Game

 

6.6

5.0 Average. No significant appeal, take it or leave it.

 

 

Le Havre

 

9.0

9.0 A solid Rosenberg, which I highly recommend.

 

 

Legendary: Deadpool

 

8.1

8.3 It is a fairly typical Legendary expansion except that it brings Deadpool’s lunacy with it.

 

 

Matryoshka

 

6.5

8.0 It’s a rare sort of game that can get me invested in the trading of something like little dolls that slide into one another, but Matryoshka manages to pull it off.

 

 

Mint Works

 

7.3

7.5 Pocket-sized fun, great little game play, and very clever production.

 

 

Mole Rats in Space

 

7.8

8.0 I do recommend it to gamer families who enjoy a challenge but like I said, include a few variant rules to make your experience better if you deem it necessary.

 

 

Monstrous

 

6.7

7.0 There’s something supremely enjoyable about breaking from games of demon slaying or resource farming to roar while you throw cards at each other.

 

 

New Bedford

 

7.9

8.0 There is a small amount of personal work needed to play this game.

 

 

Oceanos

 

8.2

6.7 Oceanos is a true gateway card drafting game.

 

 

One Deck Dungeon

 

7.8

8.0 This a very fun little dungeon crawl.

 

 

Onirim

 

8.0

8.0 Onirim captures the best of the Oniverse. It works well both as a single player game but also as a two-player cooperative game.

 

 

Orleans Invasion

 

8.5

9.0 Orléans: Invasion is an expansion for the truly amazing game, Orléans.

 

 

Orléans

 

9.0

9.0 A solid game, which I think we will be discussing for years to come.

 

 

Ortus Regni

 

8.5

8.0 If you do not mind to fight agains chance from time to time and building decks, then you will surely appreciate Ortus Regni.

 

 

Picassimo

 

6.7

7.0 Good. Usually willing to play.

 

 

Piratoons

 

7.2

6.0 Piratoons have a potential to be an excellent game taking place in real time.

 

 

Project: ELITE

 

8.5

8.5 How many games have you played that literally increased your heart beat, that made your hands sweat, and shortly after one game finishes everyone is mutually setting up for another game without asking each other if they want to play again… because it is obvious that everyone is having a lot of fun.

 

 

Pyramids

 

8.0

8.0 Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.

 

 

Raptor

 

8.0

8.0 Игру определённо буду рекомендовать всем новичкам, которые не знают с чего начать своё знакомство с настольным миром.
8.0 Тематичная и атмосферная, быстрая (минут 30-45, если внимательно взвешивать ходы), азартная и волнительная, заставляющая подумать, но и не без доли случая.

 

 

Rococo

 

7.7

9.0 BGG rating system "Excellent - very much enjoy playing." describes how I feel about this.

 

 

Santorini

 

8.3

8.0 A wonderful game, and one I expect to be a classic for many years to come.

 

 

Sergeants Miniatures Game: Day of Days

 

9.0

9.0 The system is not without flaws--the lack of clarity in the rules, as many here have mentioned, is definitely a barrier to the game--but I have just as many issues with Games Workshop rules issues, which has significantly more development $$$, a much bigger player base, and much more support.

 

 

Shipwrights of the North Sea

 

8.0

10.0 Great art, simplistic yet strategic mechanics, and great for all player ranges.

 

 

T.I.M.E Stories

 

8.1

9.0 If the consumable nature of the game is not a problem for you, then this is definitely a unique experience to savour.

 

 

The Colonists

 

8.9

9.5 Contextually, there is an uncomfortable subtext here. However, this is ultimate an intensely amazing game that is really a fantastic realisation (at least mechanically speaking) of everything I love in board gaming.
8.0 Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.

 

 

The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game

 

6.0

6.0 Butcher's big action scenes were always his greatest asset, but contrasted with the calculating nature of this game, they're a liability.

 

 

The aMAZEing Labyrinth

 

7.0

7.0 This is a great choice for families looking to game with kids.

 

 

They Who Were 8

 

6.4

4.6 Below average. Slightly boring, could be talked into it on occasion.

 

 

Tiki

 

8.0

8.0 Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.

 

 

Trambahn

 

6.5

7.0 This is a game with a nifty amount of thought and tactical thinking. It’s certainly more on the lighter side of the spectrum, but is easily underestimated.

 

 

Triumph & Tragedy

 

9.0

10.0 This is the best grand strategy game, in fact best game, I have ever played.

 

 

Tsuro

 

6.5

6.0 Fair. Some fun or challenge at least, will play occasionally if in the right mood.

 

 

Villages of Valeria

 

7.8

8.3 Villages of Valeria bridges the gap between complex mechanisms and quick learning times

 

 

Villains And Vigilantes

 

7.5

6.0 Fun game, but overall needs some polish and some of the content is just unnecessary.

 

 

Viticulture

 

8.9

8.0 Viticulture is a very nice vibrant looking game.

 

 

XCOM: The Board Game - Evolution

 

7.7

7.0 I'm not sure Evolution is quite the expansion I wanted for XCOM, I might have preferred something that had more game changing aspects so that I felt like I might sometimes want to play the base game and sometimes the expansion.

 

 

Yggdrasil

 

8.0

8.0 I think this game could warrant a reprint, especially if they incorporate the expansion and additional promotional gods in as standard like they did with the second edition.

 

 

Адреналин

 

7.9

8.0 This is a fantastically high-paced energetic game, that often presents a diversity of opportunity. Even when I’ve lost, I’ve still had a good time.

 

 

Борьба за галактику

 

9.2

8.5 Race for the Galaxy is approaching its 10th anniversary. It has strongly established itself as a classic game, which I believe everyone should try at least once.

 

 

Герои тёмных земель

 

7.3

7.5 Она простая, правила в ней легкие, но геймплей умный и интересный.

 

 

Наместник

 

6.0

6.0 Viceroy is best to be taken and appreciated for what it is – a static, low-interaction math puzzle with uneven, yet mostly appealing art and interesting mechanics that produce some satisfying spatial thinking (that ends up being more satisfying than the point calculations that comprise the bulk of the decision-making).

 

 

Среди знати

 

6.5

6.0 Могу порекомендовать вдумчивым общительным игрокам, которые осознают вес принятых ими решений, не обижаются, осознав, что загнали себя в тупик, и не принимают всеобщую агрессию близко к сердцу. «Среди знати» все-таки очень злая игра.

 

 

Стамбул

 

8.3

8.5 Great game, lots of speed, and excellent pacing.

 

 

Цитадели

 

7.7

7.0 Citadels is a great modern classic, good for two and good for up to around five players. The second edition should be considered a deluxe edition, so unless you really think the extra is worth it, stick to the standard (now classic) edition.

 

 

Цолькин: Календарь Майя

 

7.8

9.0 Going on five years now, and Tzolk’in remains a favourite.
7.0 Хорошая евроигра с оригинальным механизмом.

 

 

Экономикус

 

6.2

5.5 Это игра для новичков, нежели чем для опытных игроков.

 

 

Ярость эльфов

 

8.2

8.3 Именно такую ЯЭ я и хотел видеть: динамичную, конкурентную и азартную.
