Bärenpark makes its debut into my Top 24 at #15 this year and is the second game by Phil Walker-Harding on my list. This game made my love polyomino games! I love making my own bear park and getting the high-point statues before anyone else does. I recently bought the Bad News Bears expansion but the rulebook is entirely in German and we have no idea how it works! I’ll have to scour BGG to see if I can find a pdf of the English rules. #Barenpark#PhilWalkerHarding#boardgames#boardgameadventcalendar2019

———————————————————————— Azul dropped from #6 to #17 this year but it still made my list! I played it 35 times this year, which is a lot more than other games. It’s my stepmom’s favorite game and we play it fairly often. I also love teaching Azul to people who are somewhat new to the hobby. My husband and I play Azul: Stained Glass of Sintra occasionally as well, but if I had to choose just one version to play I’d pick classic Azul for sure. Which version do you like most?

Paladins of the West Kingdom by @garphillgames and @renegade_game_studios ⚔️🏰
Paladins is a worker placement game that utilises different types of workers. In Paladins, your are tasked by the king to defend and rebuild a city from treacherous outsiders.
Each round you will select one of the Kings knights to assist you, he will provide you with two workers and a unique ability. What makes Paladins a great strategic game are the variable workers. There are six types of worker in the game and each type is required to perform certain actions. What makes Paladins unique is that you don’t have a fixed pool of workers to use, you start off by selecting your knight, who gives you two workers, you then select a tavern card, which gives you four more workers. You have to carefully plan what you want to do each turn but that plan may dramatically change if there are no workers available of the colours you need.
Paladins has a really nice feature in which you are regularly rewarded in-round bonuses, often in the form of workers. This is a great way of extending your turn and reaching to do more, I love obtaining bonuses in a game by completing an action.
For those that have played Architects of the West Kingdom, Paladins is certainly heavier, there is less player interaction and there is more focus on what you are doing.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one, fantastic worker placement game.
✨Underwater Cities |❣️8.5/10 | 🎲 1 play
I’m late to the party, but I finally got to play this gem at my convention 😁 We had no idea who was winning (I love games like this), and scores were very close (104-102). Probably my second-favourite game of 2018 after Brass!
I don’t think this is a Terraforming Mars killer, but my boyfriend and I did conclude that the engine- and tableau-building in Underwater Cities is (dare I say objectively?) better than TM. There’s a consistent ramp-up through each era that makes it so much more fun than TM. The first 4-5 generations of TM can feel incredibly slow because you’re restricted to tiny gains with your limited resources.
I also like that the trade-off of better cards is a worse worker placement spot and vice versa—great mechanic! It makes for tougher choices compared to TM, where your actions and drafting options are often pretty straightforward decisions based on your corporation and your opponent’s strategy.
The fixed number of rounds also means that the gameplay is very tight and not as sandboxy as TM, which can drag into a 5-hour slog if players are focusing on building huge, elaborate engines 😬 UC was ~3 hours for us, and I anticipate that this will reduce to 2h with future plays.
I honestly can’t think of anything negative other than the component quality, but that doesn’t bother me 🤷🏻♀️ Excellent game—it’ll probably be a 9/10 with more plays. My boyfriend has already sworn off TM forever 😂

👹 Oh yes! We cracked open #Sanctum – the ultimate Diablo board game! It was so much fun! It looks like a lot set up on the table, but gameplay is actually pretty light: move, spawn monsters, roll dice to fight, manipulate dice, block damage, loot items, learn skills, equip equipment, buy potions 👌 You really feel your character advancing with the new skills and equipment you unlock and loot … just hope, that you will be ready, when you arrive at Act V 😱 What an epic boss fight at the end! 😎 👏 We all had very much fun! #czechgamesedition#filipneduk#diablo

• Patchwork es un juego abstracto para dos jugadores que tendrán que crear un edredón mediante el uso del tiempo y los diferentes botones. Al final, el jugador con el Edredón que más botones contenga y menos huecos libres, ganará la partida.
Patchwork se ha convertido desde su publicación en un clásico mediante su mecánica de colocación de losetas y un estilo de juego un poco Tetris. Es al mismo tiempo un juego de cuestión de recursos en contra del tiempo que va bajando vertiginosamente.
Es un juego donde el tiempo juega un papel fundamental pero no solo en la propia partida sino la propia rejugabilidad. Y es que una vez realizadas las primeras partidas, uno empieza a entender verdaderamente la mecánica del juego y las posibilidades del mismo. Es entonces cuando las estrategias se empiezan a armar. • ❤️ Su rapidez, sencillez y al mismo tiempo complejidad de cara al juego. Con pocos y básicos elementos se consigue un juego realmente interesante.
• ❌ Dos jugadores. Y nada más. Es un punto negativo, pero al mismo tiempo, la cantidad de elementos necesarios que lo hacen complicado de transportar o de jugar rapidamente en cualquier lugar.
Playing Deep Blue, the latest game of Days of Wonder that sits mainly on the push your luck mechanism, brings a lavish production and an easy set of rules that welcomes everyone around the table. This is a great example of a gateway game that plays fast and looks gorgeous on the table, guaranting to attract the looks of everyone around. Due to the length and simplicity it can easily be considered as a filler, despite the big table presence. We really liked it... @daysofwonder#daysofwonder#deepblue#Epitrapaizoume #boardgames #tabletop #boardgamer #gamer#tablegames #boardgameaddict #bgg #tablegames #tabletopgames #tablegaming #tabletopgaming #boardgamegeek #geek#bggcommunity #boardgames #boardgamenight #gamenight #brettspiel #analoggames#games #επιτραπεζια #επιτραπεζιο #πηγαινεπαιξε #επιτραπαιζουμε

I couldn’t resist a quick game although I just barely started painting the minis.
Got my butt handed to me Arkham-Style.
Guess that’s what you get when forcing Hastur onto the battlefield looking like Cinderella on a green pumpkin 🙈
