Saw the game in Essen, saw a runthrough by Rahdo and at the end of the video things became clear of how this game works. I'm still working my way up on the medium or higher games with my girlfriend, but hoping to reach the gamer level next year to tackle this one. Looks very interesting and beautiful.
Co-op with weekly a downloadable episode? Well, iff that doesn't sound new and interesting, what does? Add a modular board and dice rolling to it, and I want to buy this game. Really psyched for this one.
I backed this one on Kickstarter. Why? Because of it all I guess. It plays without surface and I often thought in situations "If only we could play a game without table now". And the art looks great. I'm not a fan of steampunk, but I love the style of these cards.
And they're planning more factions for the game so future replayability!
I saw the Rahdo's runthrough of the prototype of this one. A very straight forward worker placement game with a fun theme of getting all kinds of people the right jobs... Nice theme, nice gameplay... interesting.
Finaly a game that brings the famous computer game to the tabletop. Running your own theme park... it's a miracle this theme hasn't been used before (except Steam Park last year, but that's not really a simulation).
Feld has lots of lovers and lots of haters. I've been in this hobby for 8 months now and all the Feld games I've played so far (Amerigo, Bruges and our favorite The Castles of Burgundy) were a big succes. So it's only logic I'm putting this new one on this list.
An expansion for one of the most surprising games of 2013 (for my girlfriend and me) was this Feld, Bruges. love the different choices you have with the cards and it looks like this expansion adds some interesting extra's to the game.
I think some of the additions will work better with more than 2 players (the way I play most), but some of them look worth buying the expansion for.
Ok, this is purely a fanboy decission. Cause there's almost no information about this, but it's being designed by my favorite designer Ignacy Trzewiczek, whose games are almost a blind buy certainty for me... Almost Ignacy, almost ;-)
I had no idea this was coming until I saw this yesterday here on BGG. The X-Files is still my favorite tv series ever and I mentioned in fora before that this was the theme I wanted to be used in a boardgame the most...
And here it is.
Too bad it's a game for at least 3 players (edit: I'm wrong, it's 2-5) and sadly it needs a bad guy, but still, if the previews (which will hopefully come soon, so little info at this moment although it talks about a July release?) are decent, it will be a certain buy (or birthday gift).
