Hidden Movement Games List
- Janet WelchUnited Kingdom
My primary goal is to make a list of games for myself, as I like hidden movement games, but I also hope this list is comprehensive, so people seeking a hidden movement game won't have to search multiple lists. The list is sorted by BGG rank, rather than alphabetically.
If you have suggestions for this list (additions, deletions, corrections), please send me a geekmail. While I get list going I am not allowing comments or additions by others, so the list can remain as accurate as I can make it. I hope this list will be a valuable resource, for myself and other, rather than a forum for discussion.
I am not going to add any games that have not yet been released to this list. I will consider self published or print and play games (if it is impossible to get a physical copy of the game it won't be on this list, it may be difficult to get some games as they are out of print). As soon as I become aware of pre-release hidden movement games I will subscribe to them so I can know when they are out, feel free to geekmail me if you see any I should be watching. I will try to reply to all geekmails even if it is to tell you I am already aware of it.
Here are some of the games which were excluded from the list (Note that lists of excluded games are not comprehensive):
Movement is open but strength of units is hidden:
Kings & Things, Grunt, Search & Destroy
Hidden location games: The hidden players location is secret but they do not move.
The Phantom Society
Hidden identity game: All the pieces are on the board but the exact identity of the hidden player is unknown
Mr. Jack and all variations of, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game, Stratego, Inkognito, Mutton, Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, Aether Captains: The Search, NOIR: Deductive Mystery Game, The Hunt for Red October
Programme games: movement is open but programmed in advance, changes are not made once a programme is set.
RoboRally, Space Alert, Eketorp, Great War at Sea: U.S. Navy Plan Red, Himalaya, Duel in the Dark
