In the run up to the announcement of the Spiel Des Jahres award for 2016, this video looks at the award through the years and focuses on games which were "Recommendations". These games didn't receive a nomination for an award, yet the list contains some of the greatest games ever made.

Boardgaming Vlog 8: Maths Trades (or Math Trades...)

Maths Trades are a unique system for trading boardgames with other online boardgame fans. They are run through the BoardgameGeek website on a bi-monthly basis in the UK and anyone can take part.

The clever thing about the system is that it is not a one-to-one trade, but rather a trade-loop which may involve hundreds of participants.

This video gives a brief introduction to the process.

You can join a Maths Trade for your country/area by visiting this link:

Often overlooked among the prettier Euros, American-style games, and hybrids, the Abstract games still have a lot to offer. Here are some of my favourite examples.
