KASHGAR || Quotable 🤣 "She's got, like, a boobie shirt." || My friend is referring to one of the character cards in Kashgar. This game is so simple and the components are so elegant: just some cards, and a board with this spice tracker. Gameplay is tight and complex though! Kashgar is sort of an open-faced deckbuilder except you're working with three (sometimes four) decks and can only use one card on every turn. Then you slot that card in the back of its line. What you want to do is use your goods to fulfill contracts. Cards help you manipulate your spice, gold, and donkey counts. They also sometimes give you more cards, remove unwanted cards, or manipulate your three caravans or those of other players. I really like that the spice board is a board. Normally I'd say just give me the cubes, but when you're manipulating the counts this much, this is a tidy solution! I only wish the trackers were shaped like the actual object they represent...

Dokmus with the Return of Erefel expansion. One of my favorite abstract strategy games! I could play it over and over again. You're trying to place your tokens next to as many temples as you can. Every round you can draft a special ability to help you. Some even allow you to move the map tiles which makes this game so much fun. I just love the ever evolving board! If you like thinky abstract area control games, check out Dokmus!

Reading rules, learning how to play ‘The Voyages of Marco Polo’. So far the dice allocation seems very interesting. (I’ve come to realize that if @zmangames_ is on the box I’m probably going to like it!) . . . #nateragames #boardgame #boardgames #boardgamegeek #bgg #boardgamer #boardgaming #game #games #gamer #gaming #gameboard #tabletop #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #tabletopgamer #brettspiel #analoggames #juegosdemesa #meeple #strategy #zmangames #thevoyagesofmarcopolo #marcopolo #eurogames #eurogamer

Been a little busy with our NZ trip along with having limited internet access but, we had to share this hilarious Tour New Zealand 🇳🇿 game from the 50’s that we came across when we stopped in a Waitomo cafe before a bit of spelunking...😅 Roll n move at its most hilarious, no choices, no strategy, just roll and hope you don’t get stuck in Auckland...😂😜 - - - #bgg #boardgames #strategy #boardgamegeek #boardgame #boardgaming #tabletopgames #tabletop #gamesnight #geek #coins #gamenight #fun #games #game #boardgameaddict #gamesroom #gameroom #strategygame #gamesnight #eurogames #eurogamer #tournz #newzealand #nz #tournewzealand #cafe #waitomo #waitomocaves

Bunny Kingdom! Such a fun area control game. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love area control games with cards that also scale well. Bunny Kingdom definitely does that and more! A must have for any area control lover, imo. 🐰👑

Well here it is, the #gamerbehindthegames . I’m Andrei, and I’ve been board gaming for about 6 years now. It all started when I stopped enjoying video games due to the lack of offline multiplayer, and my wife @jacklynszabo and I were looking for something more social we could do with friends. We’re walking downtown and see Carcassonne in our local game store @whalestaletoys and somehow I convinced her we should buy the big box, because it’s better value (I sense a trend starting), and now we’ve hit about 180 and counting! In that time we’ve had 2 wonderful children, Melody (4) and Westley (2). Melody is my number 1 gaming buddy and you’ll see a lot of her on my feed, and Westley is just starting out but he loves playing his little games! And my wife @jacklynszabo enjoys playing with me, and doesn’t like co-ops as much because she can’t beat me at them 😂. I also do game reviews and top 5 lists on my site, feel free to check out the link in my bio. - As for me, when I’m not gaming I’m a plumber by trade (if you couldn’t tell by the picture), live on beautiful Vancouver Island 🇨🇦 and am one of the guitarists @ngatechurch . - I wanna give a huge shoutout to @boardgamebrewery and @boardgamerjen for starting this, it’s really awesome to get to know all of you better. The biggest reason I got into board gaming was the social aspect, and this really highlights it. Looking forward to getting to know more of you better! - #boardgames #boardgame #tabletopgames #boardgamerintroductions #boardgameaddict #boardgamegeek #analoggames #playingoffline #brettspiel #juegodemesa #jeuxdesociete #boardgamer #eurogamer

I FINALLY won Rajas of the Ganges! I'm not the biggest fan of racing games when playing with just two players but I adore Rajas. Btw, thank you all for the love on my last post! The ig board gaming community is the best. 😊

Race to the New Found Land! I played it once, and was a bit underwhelmed. However, I would really like to try it again since afterward I watched a YouTube play through and realized we got quite a number of small rules wrong. Enough that I think it definitely impacted my impression. (Ever happened to you?) There were several things I found to be quite clever, especially the ‘catch up mechanism’ with the goal cards. It’s a solid euro, but I really need to give it another go before I decide how I feel about it. . . . #nateragames #boardgame #boardgames #boardgamegeek #bgg #boardgamer #boardgaming #game #games #gamer #gaming #gameboard #tabletop #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #tabletopgamer #brettspiel #analoggames #juegosdemesa #meeple #strategy #collector #DiceTowerCon #dicetowercon2018 #racetothenewfoundland #eurogamer #zmangames

Lowlands by @zmangames_ really felt like a Uwe Rosenberg game, except without the stress of having to feed your people 😂 apparently he was involved in the design process, so it makes sense. It’s a solid farming game with the awesome addition of building the dike on the main board to keep the water out, which might be beneficial or harmful to some players and actually adds a layer of interaction and some semi-cooperative elements not usually found in these kind of games, which really gave it a breath of fresh air. It could’ve just been a lighter Agricola, but it really stood out and felt like it’s own game. Newcomers Ralf and Claudia Partenheimer did an amazing job with their first release, and I’m looking forward to another play of it. Plus... if you can’t tell, the colour palette of the game is gorgeous greens, and I just love how amazing it all looks! And... I did win with 95 points 😜!
