I don't often do reviews, but this one really caught my attention!

Wolfgang Warsch had an incredible debut year as a boardgame inventor with massive hits The Mind and Ganz Schon Clever, but it was his game Quacks of Quedlinburg which really caught my attention. This is the follow up from Schmidt Spiele - a deck-building game about running your own German tavern.

I made a video last year about 10 different mechanisms used in trick-taking games. It had LOADS of intros to some great games.

But since then, I've played many, many more examples of the genre. So the games in this video are not all brand new in 2019, but they've all been released (or re-released) within the last 18 months or so. Here's my top ten!



Here is the original video about 10 mechanisms used in trick taking games.



And here is my video clarifying the differences between trick-taking, climbing, and shedding games.

In a recent video I conflated shedding games with climbing games. I've been kicking myself ever since. Thank goodness I didn't mix up trick-taking and climbing - that's a heinous crime around these parts!!!

This video looks at the similarities and differences between 3 closely related card game mechanisms... with loads of great examples for you to try!

My new game Thrown is soon to hit the market, published by WizKids. Following on from my previous trick taking game, Pikoko (a trick taking game where you can't see your own cards), Thrown has another huge twist on trick-taking: your cards are replaced with dice!

In this little retrospective, I talk about the process of making the game.

I'll be live on Youtube tomorrow at 4pm UK time, to talk about games and game design (I'm sure Pikoko, Doodle Rush and Big Bazar will feature...) and whatever else you want to ask me about.


It's my first time doing a live stream, so there may not be many of us, but it'll be nice to chat with you anyway!
