Small update today, as I’m writing from my phone. I’m on holiday! And currently in Western Australia, meaning I have limited access to my board games. The games that I managed to sneak into my luggage but have yet to play:
- Arkham Horror LCG
- The Ravens of Thri Saharashi
- Morels (a.k.a Fungi)
However the games on my mind are definitely the heavier titles: Spirit Island and Terraforming Mars. It really bugs me I can’t play these right now! These titles have really changed my perspective on heavier games. They both aren’t rules dense but have so much depth of decision making that the game stays with you long after you play it. I love that.
Now, let’s talk Gen Con. There are some great looking games coming out, in no particular order:
- Shadows: Amsterdam
- Yellow & Yangtze
- Forbidden Sky
- Speakeasy Blues
- Trade of Tigris
- Arkham Horror 3rd Edition
- Poetry Slam
I’d also add in Root, but I’m hoping by the time I get back from holiday it’ll be on my doorstep. Otherwise I’m definitely going to keep my eyes open for these in the coming year.
Did you see anything interesting? Let me know! Otherwise see you all in two weeks!
