What’s your game of the year for 2019?


Recommended Posts

See title.  Game of the year (that came out this year) now that we’re about done.

mines been Wingspan.  It’s hit the table the most and has had the highest votes to play it again.  It’s fresh...tight....and the components are fantastic.

 

 what’s the game you played the most this year?

Arkham Horror card game... as recommended by @Konas.  Easily has hit the table the most and has gotten the family involved.  My daughter likes to play mood music from her phone each time we play it.

game that surprised you the most?

Wasteland express Delivery Service.  What a great game.  Toughest thing was the unpacking and set up but after that it’s not that difficult to understand and play.  A lot going on but a lot of fun.

game you regret the most not backing?

Middara,  I just got an invite too to back it again. Just can’t drop 200 bucks right now.  Sigh.

Kingdom Death Monster. So much crazy lore, the mechanics are amazing, and most of all the minis are dope.

In no particular order: Euphoria (expansion makes really good become great) Grimm Forest - delightful with some fun backstabbing mechanics (that can blow up in your face if you're unlucky

I was intrigued by sorcerer as well.

New Kickstarter is coming soon, adding more stuff and a solo mode :)

I still haven't played Escape Plan yet.  I need to find a good play thru.  Lisboa was like that too.  Once you played the game a few times, the rule book made sense.  Before that, not so much.

Lockup was actually pretty good.  Still seems dumb to have a "Roll Player" game with no dice though.

Lol that’s kind of a creepy looking ad if I’m to be honest

I want to try escape plan as well.  Looks like his most accessible game.  I have on mars coming soon as my first vital game along with Gallerist.

We play mood music too! Usually 1920s jazz or big band. It gets really creepy.

My game of the year is Aristeia with Monsterpocalypse a close second. I think those both came out last year though......

Game I played most this year....probably the L5R RPG which is AWESOME.

Alright everyone, I need your suggestions! I haven't played many table games, so give me a list of ones to check out :) 

7 Wonders Duel is a great 2 player game that is easy to get into.

The Hand of the King is a gateway game.

You should checkout Onitama from the DMG game library and play it with Don Johnson.

Game of the Year - hmm..

If I have to go full game - I'm thinking Wingspan even though I've only gotten to play it once.  I definitely want to play it again!

This probably also takes the "Biggest Surprise" and "Most regret not backing" awards from me too.

 

Another option for GotY for me would be the Through the Ages expansion (New Leaders and Wonders).

The 'box' form is not out yet, I really am enjoying the digital version.. and the physical version is due out this month.

 

Game I've played most this year - That's easy - Gloomhaven.

I'll go do that today! If he doesn't play it with me, I'll have you fire him again.

What do you like?  Thematic?  Light weight?  Strategic?  Shorter duration or immersive?

I'm big on strategy games! And immersive ones. :)

@Anne It's hard to know without knowing where you are at in the boardgaming experience spectrum.  Knowing themes you like and general interests would help :) .  

I could list several gateway games to start/try if you're more into lighter gaming fare or are relatively new to the hobby.

So....let's start with what kinds of games do you currently like? :)

sorry I just saw this.  I'm always going to recommend Scythe (as I'm sure @Konas will as well).  If you ever play Scythe against @Konas, your best career move will be to play as Polania.  Definitely has a good amount of strategy to it.

Have you played co-ops with your boyfriend?
