Continuing through our game collection by year. This is a rather uneventful year for games that made it into our collection adn these are mostly fairly weak overall.

After playing this at a convention this year, I had to get a copy as we tend to love co-ops and the miniatures, historical "theme", as well as the traitor aspect made this a perfect game to begin our new gaming group with when we moved. There is a lot to enjoy here including the relative ease of getting into the game and the tendency to want to run it again when the first game finishes.

One of the GIPF project abstracts with some similarities to TWIXT in terms of objective, but a bit different game play options.

It seems like color and artwork are themes for these first three games on the list. The play of this game adds some interesting shifts in scoring and the sea areas are also a nice touch. I think it may still need a few more plays to move itself up higher.

This is a surprisingly interesting 2-player strategy game. I like the way it works with card choices and trying to grab parts of the temple. It plays fairly quick and makes for a good coffee shop game.

Still a little new to us but this standalone Catan-universe game. There are a few interesting plays here that make it a good game that plays well in about an hour.

One of the quick 2-player games that combines some tile-laying in a semi-unique way. It gets played more often because it gives you the game feel of CARCASSONNE but with several slight differences. The tiles are also quite beautiful.

A game that seems to appear on many 2-player geeklists. Time will tell where it ends up here once we get a chance to play it a bit.

A basic "tug-of-war" aspect underlines this game a bit. We tried a couple of plays and it seemed like the base game itself was a bit blah. So it needs a bit more oomph given by those advanced components included with the game. Good quick-playing coffee house game and travels well in a smal package.

When I saw this on the discount shelf at an LGS, I decided to pick it up mostly because we like Feld games. I am also curious to see what got changed when the "sequel" appeared that we have played.

New to us this year, but it has many aspects of tile-laying games coupled with some strategy that should move this one up the list.

At the time, this seemed like a good idea as post-Christmas game purchase to play in a party setting. Now it basically gets set up as a background trivia video during parties.
