It's a worker placement and resource management game with a thematic very good implemented. The game has simple rules and is easy to teach but it does not mean the game is basic, quite the opposite, during the game the player have to take interesting decitions. The interaction between the players is constant, all the time has tension because of the other players actions. Its a game in what time passes really fast. Very recomended, the best game i played in 2016.

This is the most difficult cooperative game I've ever played and I love that. It is a little complex to explain because of the number of exceptions that can be presented in addition to the amount of information to be assimilated; However, once the rules are learned, playing is quite simple. the Agobio and anxiety take over you during this game. All the time the players are at the limit and must manage their actions properly or will not survive. A tensioning game but very nice. The theme is great and the events that can be presented make it even better. With my wife we really enjoy it.

One of the many trains games on the market. I've only played this and Ticket to Ride and the last one do not look anything like Steam. At first and without knowing it I thought it was a boring and very mathematical game, but then when I played, it left me very good sensations. The bids when selecting the turn order, how the game is developed, how to use the built routes or how to use the ones of others, all together is very well implemented. A perfect game.

4. Board Game: Five Tribes [Average Rating:7.79 Overall Rank:56]

It is an abstract game, very very beautiful. At first you are a little lost because you have many possibilities and you do not know which is the best; However as you play you will find a way to make more points. One of the problems is that although the mechanics are simple, the game is tactical and players can get paralysis analysis, on the other hand something interesting about this tactical game is that can generate tension sensations by the order of turn and by the actions that the other players make. I like it a lot although I get the feeling that no matter what you do during the game, in the end the scores are very tight and any player may win.

5. Board Game: Blood Rage [Average Rating:8.05 Overall Rank:27]

A very showy game. The miniatures are spectacular and you want to play just for watching it. It is a game in which you must keep most of your units on the map to earn points of honor and glory. The cards give variety to the game although with the initial selection is mitigated a little. The players can develop a strategy at the beginning but as time goes by and according to the cards the player has selected, that strategy can change. When I play this type of area control games, I never concentrate on the points score until the end when it's too late. Recommended

6. Board Game: El Grande [Average Rating:7.78 Overall Rank:57]

Another area control game and I think it was the one that started to use this type of mechanics. The game is quite simple and enjoyable to play. The random can end your strategy so the important thing in this game is not to focus on a plan from the beginning but to adapt tactically to what is happening in the game. I have the 20th anniversary edition and what I dislike is the size of the box as it is too exaggerated. I do not have a favorite between Blood Rage and El Grande, I put them in that order perhaps for aesthetics. I have to play more games to both to know which one i prefer.

7. Board Game: BANG! The Dice Game [Average Rating:7.00 Overall Rank:483]
Colombia

As its name indicates is the Bang but instead of cards uses dices. In terms of sensations is similar to one of my favorite card games that is Samurai Sword and for its duration is easier to get to the table. The game is pretty simple but it does what it promises. Nothing of the other world, I prefer the Samurai Sword, but I have it in the collection for those days in which we want to play something simple and short.

This is an abstract game with very good components making the cost / components ratio excellent. In general the rules are super simple and can be explained very fast. Overall the game is fine but after several games I find it a little boring, it may happen that there is not much confrontation, although there is a slight interaction I would like it to be more. It would be better if the players could make some actions to affect the contrary.

9. Board Game: City of Horror [Average Rating:6.73 Overall Rank:1246]

I like the chaotic games when to do evil things is, my favorite is Survive: Escape From Atlantis, searching a game with these characteristics I tried this City of Horror. The truth, the game is good, in the game they give many stabs and situations of betrayal. I do not like the bargaining component very much, although I am very good at it, I would like it to be limited by some rules. Finally what I like least is that if they kill your characters, you have nothing to do, you have no voice or vote and you only dedicate yourself to seeing others, which does not happen in Survive because there you can continue to do evil even when you know that you will not win. Very good components and in my opinion a cheap game.

The game with the best components that I have played. Everything is spectacular. The thumbnails and graphic art in general is very beautiful. I do not like games with many rules or many exceptions maybe that's why it's so low in this ranking of 2016. The game is nice to play but very long, if it had less duration it would have enjoyed it more. Is nice, but not so much as to have it in the collection, besides that it is very difficult to get to the table.
