Board Game: Terraforming Mars: Prelude

Board Game: Root
Waro (Euro-ized wargame) / Strategy Game

29. Board Game: Kingdomino: Age of Giants [Average Rating:7.30 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.30 Unranked]
Board Game: Kingdomino: Age of Giants
Family Game

Not really needed but an expansion that can be used to change up Kingdomino, albeit at the cost of adding a “take that” element that some may not welcome.

Board Game: Ticket to Ride: New York

31. Board Game: Disney Villainous [Average Rating:7.06 Overall Rank:644] [Average Rating:7.06 Unranked]
Board Game: Disney Villainous
Family Game (it's Disney after all)

Love the theme (be the Bad Guy) but game fails to deliver a really fun experience.

34. Board Game: Raiders of the North Sea [Average Rating:7.78 Overall Rank:92] [Average Rating:7.78 Unranked]
Board Game: Raiders of the North Sea
Strategy Game

A worker placement game with a Viking theme. Love the theme; hate the mechanic. Being a wargaming family 878 Vikings: Invasions of England is more our thing.

Board Game: Silver Bayonet: The First Team in Vietnam, 1965 (25th Anniversary Edition)
Wargame

Picked up in the 2018 GMT Games sale. A great game that updates Operation Shoestring: The Guadalcanal Campaign, 1942, an old favorite of mine. May be the best Vietnam War game out there.

My Wargame of the Year.

37. Board Game: AuZtralia [Average Rating:7.41 Overall Rank:650]
Board Game: AuZtralia
Strategy Game

Not a “wargame” but an “adventure/exploration” game with a good deal of combat. Mixes many mechanisms. Gradually growing on me.

38. Board Game: Finnish Civil War [Average Rating:6.92 Unranked]
Board Game: Finnish Civil War
Wargame

A Brian Train design so you know it’s going to be an interesting look at an unconventional conflict.

39. Board Game: Squadron Strike: Traveller [Average Rating:7.62 Unranked] [Average Rating:7.62 Unranked]
Board Game: Squadron Strike: Traveller
Wargame

A Kickstarter that delivered over 2 years late. Very complicated. But it’s Traveller and I have been playing in that universe since 1979.

42. Board Game: NATO Air Commander [Average Rating:7.74 Overall Rank:7307]
Board Game: NATO Air Commander
Wargame (solitaire)

I came of age in the 1980s. This game was not a dream, but the nightmare we all wanted to avoid. When I first joined the Navy this was the Big War we trained for.
