Bah, it took longer than ever but here it is, I present you the list of the games published in 2017 that I have played.

Published in a given year series metalist

The numbered ("ranked") games in this list (first two pages) are these games. You can comment why you agree or why you think I'm stupid to think a game is good when it's terrible.

Then (page 3 & 4) you'll see the games I still would like to try. You can tell me why I should avoid them based on the first pages or why I should choose one to be the next one I try.

The rest is for your suggestions: If you think there are other games not listed that I should try (published in 2017 according to BGG) based on my opinions about the games I played.


Just some notes:
1. With the few occasions to play I could not be as selective in what I play as I usually like. There are quite a few important titles missing and there are unfortunately a few rather weak games in the end.
2. You'll see I prefer some fillers over complex games. I don't think that's an outrage.

I liked Fabled Fruit enough to want to try this series as well. too bad they are language-dependent and I won't find gamers who want to play it many times.

Another big box Uwe Rosenberg along the lines of most of his big box board games since Agricola - most of them were good, some of them great. If it's only good that's already enough - although I guess it won't feel that novel.

A microgame based on a Cold War themed board game sounds right up my alley. Biggest problem with most Cold War themed games is the language dependence and length, so even if it's language dependent, as it's a microgame it's probably less of a problem.

A very Euro-looking cube pusher with area control, deck/pool building and route/network building as their main mechanisms sounds fine and it even has good ratings. (I admit I hadn't heard of it before making this list.)

'Which Egyptian dynasty will be the most glorious? ' sounds like one of the most basic and overused idea a game might have, but the overlapping cards building pyramids on the game images piqued my interest.

I quite like the two highest rated games in the relatively new HABA family games series and this is another good-looking big box one that just seems to offer what I like in old-fashioned Eurogames.

I'm not sure if it's by design or not, but right when I add this game to this list its average rating is 6.66 which is fun from a game titled Hellapagos. Otherwise... I'm sure this game is not what I'd love but I sure would like to give it a try with players who don't get offended (as it seems to be a very confrontative one).

While it seems we still have to wait for a really great game with the cloth folding idea (see Fold-it) it sounds fun enough for me to want to give it a try.

In an age when games like Fold it! or Battlefold can exist I think it's a crime to call a game Origami without the need to fold paper at all... But it seems like a fast and light card game.

Dávid Turczi is another Hungarian designer whose work I keep following (even if I have only played one of his co-designs - but that ended up #1 in my list last year).

While I'm not sure the world really needed a slightly more complex take on Las Vegas, I'm also not claiming I'm not interested in giving it a try.

The game looks beautiful and shows just what I love to look at - a forest - quite spectacularly, although some buddies report it might be too abstract and dry - well, to their liking. Maybe it's still good for me?

It's a somewhat cheap-looking but well-received Hungarian design so I'd like to see what the fuss is about.

The description sounds like a thematic Zendo ('Visitor in Blackwood Grove is an asymmetric, two-versus-many, inductive-reasoning game in which one player — the Visitor — makes up a secret rule like "Things that contain metal" to determine which objects can pass through the forcefield. The other players — the Agents and the Kid — try to figure out the rule by seeing which objects pass through the forcefield and which don't') which is enough for me to want to give it a try.

I'm not sure I know what this game is but it seems to feature a few mechanisms that I like and the theme is also exciting so I'm curious.

I'm not sure what it is but the "board game based on a solitaire Mahjong set-up' idea sounds too good so I need to try it.

This one looks to be a game like the kind of abstracts that I love. 'each action taken leaves different options for your foe. (...) you manipulate tokens on a special board in order to activate your dragon, leaving that same board to be manipulated by your opponent on their turn.' I'm big fan of this kind of interaction and even the game images look intriguing.

A fine-looking little abstract; well I guess I can try it with my ZÉRTZ set so the question is only: is it worth a try?

As all the 10 ratings and most of the 9 ratings come from the two countries of the former Czechoslovakia (many of them admitting they have playtested the game) I'm slightly cautious here, just like when a board game does not have a designer, just a company name ('designer: Euler's Game') but still, it does at least look interestingish abstractish so I'd like to give it a try.

I don't know much about this, but the theme combined with the main mechanisms (deduction on a map) definitely makes me want to try it.

Now it's your turn - please add further games to the list, suggesting me games from 2017 that I overlooked but you think I might like (based on the games I listed). Thank you!
