One more weird (and enjoyable) Carl Chudyk game where the cards do multiple things - this time in space.
#199: Dastardly Dirigibles (2016)
A pleasant set-collecting game that's easy to introduce to non-gamers... with a nicely realized steampunk theme. My review is here.
#198: Epic PVP: Fantasy (2015)
The boys & I enjoy this one enough that we've bought both the expansions to increase the variety of combinations. Balancing your hand size and ability to play cards is tricky.
#197: Olympia 2000 (v. Chr.) (1994)
A nearly 25 year old classic game from Stefan Dorra... it's a light simultaneous selection game with a cute theme.
#196: Tiny Epic Kingdoms (2014)
The first game of what has become a Kickstarter juggernaut... I like the small footprint of the game. I think it's a decent game with just the base game that is improved by the addition of the expansion. My preview of the KS is here.
#195: Machi Koro (2012)
It's bloated with both expansions in... but the base game is a good little city-building dice game with some nice twists.
#194: Batik (1997)
I'm not sure whether to call it a dexterity game or an abstract game - but it's the game I keep on my desk at work. (It was a gift from Stephen Glenn...)
#193: Mole in the Hole (1995)
A Ravensburger game that was marketed to kids but actually has some nifty tactical considerations and an innovative multiple level board.
#192: Blöder Sack (2014)
It's "use dice to claim cards" - but the way you place dice to win majorities and the ability to push out someone else's dice makes it fun. The drawstring bag makes it portable.
#191: Im Reich der Jadegöttin (2007)
The first of a planned trio of Entdecker-based games... sadly, only two of the three were published. This is the more family-friendly of the pair that saw the light of day.
A trio of editorial notes:
- The BoardGameGeek entry for the game is linked through the date of publication.
- When appropriate, I've linked to content I've written about the game.
- For #200-#101, I'm only going to post pictures of the highest ranked game in each set.
