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.

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!

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.

It is time to decide some fates! Well actually MANY fates if you want to be correct. Probably closer to billions, but we can handle that easily. Oh, what a surprise to be in charge of black holes and more.

Join Fry and Zoidberg as Planet Expr…I mean, space travelling people around is pretty cool. First there is space and then there is helping people out. Not to mention you get rewarded for your good deeds of taking over a new planet! What’s not to love?

Everyone loves to adventure! Most of us grew up watching Indiana Jones movies and always wanted a whip and a cool fedora. So who wouldn’t want to do what Indy does in a board game, selling newly found treasures to museums and curating your personal property…wait, what?
Let’s go to our HQ to get to the bottom of this…

Doesn’t everyone dream of being a carpenter? Making floors, roofs, and walls…especially when they are full of color and many tiles. What could be better? Playing a board game of that may be better because it is quicker and less of a mess.
Let’s tile these walls!

Back in the day we didn’t have this fancy technology. No screens to stare at endlessly, no boxes of electronics to twiddle our thumbs to. We had stories (and games, shhhh) that needed to be told by campfire. They were often embellished for dramatic affect. But there is consequences to that.
In comes the nanuk!
