These are the games I liked the most for 2017. They may have not been produced in 2017, but I played them in 2017

I finally got around to playing this game after it having sit on the shelf for a year, just an amazing game on a classic. My favorite game so far.

I was comparing this game with Raiders of the North Sea. Both are worker placement, both are viking themed. Up until the expansion for Champions of Midgard, I would have picked Raiders, but with the expansions, Champions of Midgard is just a wonderful worker placement viking age game of building armies and going out into the wilderness and killing the bad things.

This re-release by AEG of a cooperative game set on a space ship is just fun. Its tense without using a timer, the artwork is interesting, and the asymmetrical characters do a good job of eliminating the issue of alpha gamers.

This card crafting game by AEG is an interesting combination of deck builder (now card builder) and engine building. The art is beautiful, and its just a game that's chill to play.

This is a worker placement game with an extremely dark theme. The mechanics of resolution are interesting, and the historical aspect is also fascinating.

This auction game of building goods is one of the best "take that" games that doesn't look like a take that game.

Hands down this is my favorite "non zombie" game. It feels like Walking Dead the game. It comes out every October at my FLGS.

Probably my favorite mid weight game. The theme, plus the unusual asynchronous worker placement make this game one of my favorites for the year.

A really nice merger of RPG and Board Game. It does have some issues, like a lack of complete miniatures, but the fundamentals are sound. I think Board Gamers don't like it because its rules are written more like an RPG
