First up was this new worker placement game which was a big hit with us. The new expansion added a nice layer as well to the game.

The list here is mostly in order of acquisition. But, if we were to pick one of our favorites of the year, this Feld game would certainly be #1.

One of our go-to card games when we are looking for something "lighter" sans board to play.

Our other favorite co-op game after Pandemic. The two sort of get rotated to the table month-to-month.

I even did the Kickstart support to pick up the firefighter figures and both of the new expansions. Many options to now enjoy this game.

After enjoying Castles of Burgundy so much, I decided to explore some other Feld games starting with this one. It does not have quite the set-up needs of CoB and seems like it will play rather quickly. Our first learning game took about 75 minutes which is on the game's posted play time.

We entered the euro-game world with Settlers and do not always have more than 2 of us to play Catan. This game quickly hits that need and plays quickly enough to wrap up an evening.

A great and fun abstract game from Knizia recommended a lot for good reason here on BGG. Probably our #3 favorite of the year, or a close #2 with Stone Age.

Next to learning Power Grid, this was one of the harder new euros to understand but we have grown to love this one quite a bit that scales well for a bidding game with 2.

Surprisingly fun and strategic card game that may seem easy on the surface but requires a lot more focus than one might think.

A surprise for me mostly since it allows for solo play. Plenty of challenges and an opportunity some day to add other players to see how it plays.

A surprise little game that provides several intersting ways to win. Easy to play and understand but with good opportunities for developing alternate strategies.
