BGBBOB, party edition! For those not keeping up, that’s BGB Best of Board Games, which is definitely not the final name (but also maybe is) for our recurring feature where we duel rank games into an incontestable ordered list. This week we confer, fight, and bargain our way to the best fifteen party games. Before we spike the punch, we also talk about Twice As Clever, Wavelength, and 6 nimmt!
We’re gluttons for punishment this week, because we’re talking about harshness in board games. These are the sort of games where big moves or bad mistakes can be hard to recover from. Harsh games aren’t for everyone, so when and why do we find them appealing? Before we grit our teeth, we talk about Wavelength, Genoa, Krass Kariert, and Oceans.
We’re in a post top-fifty world, and it’s about time we take this whole 2020 thing seriously. No more looking back, we’ve got to start looking to the year ahead, and what better way than making promises to ourselves that we’re totally going to keep. It’s board game resolutions time!
