My number one two player game. Great theme, and the agents are awesome, especially the Master Spy (an agent that lets you win if you lose ha ha). Great quality of the components too. Underrated game, probably because of the high luck factor.
If you like games with different powers for different players, then this is the game for you. There are tons of aliens to choose from and the replayability is very high.
This is just fun to play, where you attack other players to try to establish five colonies on their planets. The attacker/defender have the possibility to invite the other players to support them.
Cosmic Encounter is a hand management card game where you have to know when to play your best cards. Sometimes you will be lucky and have great cards, other times your cards sucks. You have to make the best of it, it is as simple as that.
My favorite game of all times. The setting with the different houses (families) on an island fighting for the power is a great theme. I love backstabbing and alliances, and this is THE game to play if you love those mechanics. I had the first version plus all the expansions, but traded it away and got this one. I just like to think this one is better, and it also probably is.
One of my favorite games, since I am very fascinated by the Second World War. I am a proud owner of all the expansion, inclusive the famous bag! Easy rules and great components and it is very fun to recreate history. The set-up times does take some minutes, but talk about WW2 or the game and just get in the spirit for the game while doing it, and you'll be fine. I am looking forward to introduce Memoir '44 to my gaming group and have entire evenings playing this game.
Awesome game were you fight to gain victory points. Little time for turtling as you get points for being aggressive. I also like that it has hidden quests. Equally great for 2,3 and 4 players. Pretty simple game and not wearing out its welcome. If you don't mind dice this is a fantastic choice if you need a game were armies go head to head. A big hit in our gaming group.
Maybe the best game for my gaming group this year. It reminds me of A Game of Thrones and Wallenstein, kind of a mix between those two. It is faster to play though. Nice bits too and thematic with the different samurai's and their speciality.
Great game with a great theme. The traitor mechanic makes this game very fun and interesting. If you like stuff like knights and King Arthur this is a must-have. The board and bits are very, very nice too.
Terrific game. If you ever want to play a tactical game with different characters/races in a pretty short time with short setup-time this is it! Love how you need to chose to use the cards; magic or units?
Such an elegant wargame. The planning phase is perfect, and is one of the best mechanics in any game I have played. The tower (used to resolve wars in the game) is simple and effective. And exciting! I had the first version of Wallenstein, but sold it to buy Shogun. But that game wasn't as good as Wallenstein, probably because I was so used to the german map and names. Now that I finally have the new Wallenstein in english with all the expansions this is a sure 10. Awesome game. Buy it.
