Game of the Month

Further to my most recent post about board game purchases, 2018 has so far been filled with playing those games that have been acquired in the past decade. We started off in January with Killer Bunnies. Because there are so many rabbits about, we kept that going through February as well. March saw a change of pace as we went back in time to produce 7 Wonders. As Wonderful as that was, we holidayed in the French medieval city of Carcassonne for April.

Game of the Year

For a number of years in the 2010s I would research and then buy a board game suitable for our family for Christmas. The game had to satisfy certain criteria: Be suitable for as many people in the household as would reasonably want to play (anywhere from 2 to 6). Not take too long to complete (maximum of an hour, please). Not be too complex or adversarial (or cooperative). Get decent ratings in the family games section of BoardGameGeek.
