We've been travelling across Canada visiting game cafés for about a year now. Seems a fine time to look back and pick our top 5 games that we've played at a café during our incredible journey.

Here with his picks is James, the first of our three person team to weigh in on the subject.

Flash Point was the first co-op board game that I had the pleasure of playing, which led me to play other games like Ghost Stories and Pandemic.

King of Tokyo was one of the 'funnest' games I have played in a long time. Having cards that switch things up, dice that choose your turn and a mechanic that turns the game on a dime, this game keeps you on your toes but has a funny theme that I cannot get enough of.

As a designer I respect this games beauty above all others. It's a great easy game although not mind-bending this game had a great movement mechanic and is a quick learner.

Talk about a well made game. Every piece of this game is just awesome. I feel like I'm diving into the game every time I play. A huge board, great pieces, metal cast coins and even the box is designed well. Great fun game for all ages! You absolutely feel like you got your money's worth from this game. Not like buying some Hasbro games...

Ok so I'm not sure if I'm rating the game, or the people that I had the pleasure to play it with, but if you have a great bunch of people that are ready to have a good time, this game will guide you in exactly that direction. A fantastic game that almost plays like a party game but feels a bit smarter.
