Part 2 of our totally formal, definitely scientific review of the games we played in cafes is here! Today, we’ve picked 7 games we tried in 2015 that we would drop everything and play today, given half the chance.
Ghost Stories: We first learned this game at Across the Board in Winnipeg and were immediately hooked, despite the fact that even allowing ourselves three opportunities to cheat did not result in a victory. All further attempts resulted in disaster. Must. Beat. Game.
Arboretum: Someone described this game as a friendship-ending walk in the woods. Apparently we dig that. This game’s strategy is INTENSE.
Formula D: A recent re-release with lots of gaming possibilities. We’ve tried the simple version but are eyeing a gear upgrade pronto.
A La Carte: Cooking in real life: Lame. Cooking in a board game? Awesome.
Memoir 44: Somehow we’d never tried this Days of Wonder 2-player classic. One round was not nearly enough – and there are so many more scenarios to try.
