- Sechs nimmt / Category 5 (1994, gets swift intense buy-in even from non-gamers) *
- Innovation (2010)
- Magic: the Gathering (1993) *
- Plato 3000 (2012) *
- Keltis (2008, travel version, very handy)
- Glass Road (2013) *
- Archaeology: the Card Game (2007) *
- For Sale (1997)
- Qwirkle (2006) *
- Samurai (1998) *
These are mostly short games that you can play repeatedly in one evening. Only Glass Road, Qwirkle and Samurai are a bit longer. Another long game that I played a lot was Elfenland. All are highly recommended! Except Archaeology, a game of which I got tired fairly quickly – unlike its scientific namesake.
I played 62 different boardgames in 2014, less than the year before because I concentrated on ones I’ve got that hadn’t seen much play. Looking back since mid-2008, the number is 216, and 19 were new to me this year. Dear Reader, what was your biggest boardgaming hit in 2014?
