1. Board Game: Midgard [Average Rating:6.61 Overall Rank:1977]

The inspiration for this list. Midgard is Eric Lang’s precursor to his BGG Top 20 hit, Blood Rage. After playing Blood Rage again recently I realized I actually like the older Midgard more. Blood Rage is beautiful and that’s not not something that can be said for Midgard (a game so ugly I could never get myself to buy it even though I think it’s great).

For me, it comes down to the fact that the core gameplay is the same and I don’t think the additions add enough for the increased game length.

So far I’ve yet to meet anyone that agrees with me.

I was guilty myself of pushing San Juan to the side in favor of Race for the Galaxy. Over time though, I tired of Race. That never happened with San Juan and when I went back and played the Puerto Rico card game again, I rediscovered what an elegant masterpiece the game is. I’ve now played more games of San Juan than Race and hopefully it will stay that way.

I like this better than Small World, both for the less manic graphics and for the more interesting selection of faction characteristics.

I like this a lot better than either The Scepter of Zavandor or Phoenicia. Neither of the spinoffs gets my heart racing the way the original does.

This sure beats Blackbeard, and remains the best pirate game to date.
