I will admit, I so desperately wanted to put Cloudspire on this list. It is a lot of fun of what little I played it but felt I couldn’t 100% say that it was a game you needed to play from the two sessions I played that I think I sort of got most of the rules correct. But that leaves me with this game which I have played a whole many times.

Oh boy, talk a big one!
This game has popped up a lot of places for many reasons. It is decent and heavy box, fancy poker chips/components, not being the cheapest game, and definitely being challenging. And most of those are a good reason to love it!
Let’s talk about this non-pirate game.

I love that board games can be about anything. Got mystical quests, wall-tiling, making chemicals, and of course seating people on planes. This one snuck up on me and I didn’t expect this to be as good as it was.
Find out why after the jump!

It is cold, dark, and you have no idea where you are. Steel lines the floors and walls and no signs of life can be found. But then there is a noise and a motion in the dark from all directions and you are no longer by yourself. But what has joined you makes you wish that you were…
Exit solitary after the jump!

I like Root. It was my favorite game last year. And I am excited about the upcoming expansion as I also threw more money at it to get the fancy mat boards. But this new news about Root going digital is just very exciting.
3D elements on the board with cel-art animation style for the cute creatures is just what I need. Dire Wolf Digital is making it and they say it is coming soon, later this year. Will it be good? Well Dire Wolf Digital has made Raiders of the North Sea digital game as well as Pokemon Online. I can’t imagine being handed those and this license and not making a quality product would be a thing.
Here’s hoping it comes to the Nintendo Switch like Raiders has and Eight Minute Empire is about to do!
Trains are pretty cool. There a lot of train board games out there. You have Ticket to Ride, there is Trains, TransAmerica is next to Union Pacific, and there is a lot more. But the one that really caught my eye is by one of my favorite new game makers.

Labyrinth’s Annual Used Game Sale is almost here. It actually starts tomorrow, July 26-27! For those not familiar, people offer up their games they don’t want anymore and they are auctioned/sold for charity. Some of the ways this aids the local community is helping buy games for local teachers and help fund Labyrinth’s school aftercare program & demo library.
They raised over $6,000 last year so you know they get some good stuff. That’s where it should interest you…they get a crazy amount of games and even sealed games. Some notable games from their schedule are Root, Gloomhaven, Risk Onyx Edition, Acquire, and thousands more. So there are plenty of good stuff to be found.
More details? Hit the jump!

What’s this, no RPG today?!
I’m sorry but there won’t be one this week and maybe not next week. I’m taking a little break from editing before ramping it up again. I have two more RPG sessions recorded, each a different game. So I might be switching gears for a little while but there is more to come!
I hope you don’t mind too terribly!
The downtown Silver Spring Library’s meeting rooms have been a great opportunity for us since the building opened. They have been very kind and generous with letting us use their facilities to host our events. But starting this month, we will only be having one event a month at the library.
