While not a secret, I don’t post too much about being a board gamer here, but one of the things I’m most looking forward to during this season of spending time with family and friends is playing a few board games — including some that have not “hit the table” in a while.
I also generally get a game we can play as a family each Christmas (the previous ones, Feuerdrachen and Drachenturm, have been big hits with the kindern). This year, we’ll take a departure from Haba for an adventure game I think the kids will dig.
If you’re toying with the idea of picking up a game or two from your friendly local game store, Ars Technica has what I believe is now their annual board game guide. There’s some solid picks throughout.
