Most-played Boardgames of 2016

keltisHere are the nine boardgames that I played more than thrice during 2016. The year’s total was 87 different games.

  • Keltis (2008, travel version, very handy, and Cousin E loves its mathiness)
  • Sechs nimmt / Category 5 (1994)
  • Deception: Murder in Hong Kong (2014, like Clue + Werewolf) *
  • Heimlich & Co. (1984) *
  • Taluva (2006) *
  • Blokus (2000)
  • Carolus Magnus (2000) *
  • Qwirkle (2006)
  • Telestrations (2009) *

These are mostly short games that you can play repeatedly in one evening. Taluva and Carolus Magnus are a bit longer. A long game that I played thrice was Glory to Rome. All are highly recommended!
