I got a fever, and the only cure is playing these games.

Um, So the IDEA at BGG, is to play as many DIFFERENT games as possible?

Then how did I end up with three plays of Terra Mystica? Because everytime someone saw it in my hands, they asked me to play it!

They would have sold DOZENS of copies, if they were available. This Small World-ish, worker placement/ civ building game is really fun, really well balanced.

Terra Mystica, you had me at variable player powers!

This game has some of the most beautiful artwork I have ever seen. Gorgeous.

I didn't play a full game of it, just a demo at the booth....but semi-co-op, save the world eco game? I am IN!

This one was way way too much.

Incredible art, great playing, Splotter game.

It was described as the shortest (in time), deepest (in thinking) game ever.

Its pretty too.

Super simple bluffing game.
Stupendous filler.

This game is not about the Star Trek world or a hilarious/ medium weight simulation game about the crew of the Enterprise.

Each station on the bridge has a unique minigame that contributes to other players and the welfare of the ship. Great group fun!

The Westside Spielers will dig this.

Another gorgeous game about the distant future where an ancient tree is the center of developing a new and more harmonious way of life for all mankind.


Nice

If you like Kingsburg, you will like this game.


Also, was taught by the designer, Donald Lloyd, who was a really nice guy, and open to suggestions, new ideas, and expansion thoughts. A rare gem of a designer, who liked talking about his own games and was open to critique and inspiration!
