One reason this is so high on the list is that we are able to play 2 or three games per session.

Plays as of April 5, 2017: 20a

Kingdom Builder is one of my go-to gateway strategy games. It is variable enough that it is different every time, but it's easy enough to learn that anyone can play it and win. I have played a limited amount with Nomads and Crossroads, and I have not yet played with either Marshlands or Harvest, so I have a lot of plays left in this game.

#30

Previously #68

Reason for change: I believe this is the biggest jump for a game previously on the list. I love Kingdom Builder's crunchy decisions that stem from such a simple concept. As a base game, it has virtually infinite replay value and completely overtakes Dominion. However, the expansions lack the same easy integration as is found in Dominion. Strange and occasionally clunky, I nearly always want to play with just the base game after I try one of the new expansions. Marshlands is undeniably the worst of them, adding a terrible new terrain mechanism. However, the new scoring cards are great.


Wow. It feels like Dominion, and it doesn't. I've not played it enough yet for it to rise any higher or fall due to staleness. So far I've loved it and found the gameplay more emergent than Dominion but with understandably less variety.

In Kingdom Builder, you'll deal with some interesting mechanisms that seem a bit at odds with its theme but still offer some great decisions. There are 5 different types of terrain, and you'll be dealt 1 card per turn. For your turn you place 3 of your pieces on that terrain; your first settlement can go anywhere on that terrain but all future settlements must be built adjacent if possible. This means that early in the game you'll want to keep yourself away from any unnecessary adjacency to allow you to freely place across the map. When you draw a terrain card and you have no choice due to an unfortunate adjacency, it's enough for many to write the game off. But don't do that! Sure it doesn't seem super thematic to be forced to build pointless settlements, but the way that your decision making changes to work with this mechanism is really interesting. Being able to place anywhere is great in the early game, usually allowing you to place and pick up a bonus action tile. The bonus action tiles are one of the elements that lend the game its Dominion-esque number of possible permutations. Add in the actual scoring cards, which really do change the game in meaningful ways, and you have what is becoming a trademark Donald X. Vaccarino design.

I've still only played the base game, but I'm trying to get my hands on all the expansions.

The Best Under 30 Minutes Award
Kingdom Builder
(19 plays)

After the first 3 or 4 sessions, once the game clicks and you became aware that the limitation of one card is tenuous and practically negligible, this game become a favorite around the house. Always different and variable. After 19 plays we still feel that we haven't become saturated by the infinite permutations for scoring. The fact that it plays under 30 minutes is what makes this game stand out. An evolving landscape of possibilities and increasing decisions under 30 minutes. Wonderful!

Honorable mentions

space

7 Wonders Duel (64 plays) and Istanbul (10 plays)


7 Wonders Duel as become a classic in our house. With so many things going for it, it's always a no-brain choice when we don't know what to play and don't have time to choose, and still want a great game to play under 30 minutes. The base game of Istanbul only came through when I realized I could put in one bag all the components need for a two player game, since that's my most frequent player count. The setup became super-quick and when playing with some experienced plays, it goes very fast! Nobody talks, the turns fly by and it looks like a game of checkers when moving the pieces. We always play it with a random board.

Great strategy game that distills each turn a simple choice for the player. As light or deep as you can currently manage, relatively fast and non-confrontational (no take that, but blocking).

The table I was playing at then played two rounds of Kingdom Builder, which I do enjoy a lot. I had played it once before, and it definitely proved its value tonight. To be such a fast paced and easy to learn game, it comes with an incredible amount of variety in the box. Neat, neat game.

Hey Donald you'll be happy to know your game will be going to print this week.
Neat. What did you name it?
Oh. We just kept your name.
"Kingdom builder"?
Ja, that.
That was more of a project name. You know kingdom builder, card shuffler, victory point grabber.
Vell, vee really liked it.
And it's "kingdom builder"? In English?
Ja.
It's not Baureich or something like that?
Hehe, nein, Germans like English titles.
Ooookay. I'll get my check next week, right?

What if every game has a different set of upgrades/special abilities that you can gain and use like Kingdom Builder? Whistle Stop features 12 different upgrades and you use only half of them each game. Some of the upgrades let you gain more coal or resources every round and some of them add fun new abilities.
