Skymines is a blast. I’ve taught it to my regular group and they all had a great time with it. It’s a strange game in as much as there’s quite a lot going on, but it never feels like it’s too much.

Alexander Pfister is the designer behind some of the best games being made at the moment. Great Western Trail has been riding high in the BGG charts for five years now, along with other hits like Maracaibo, Port Royal, Oh My Goods, Isle of Skye and last year’s CloudAge.
There’s something about games set in tropical waters that I just love. I bought Merchants and Marauders back in the day, I was instantly drawn to Macao, I love Jamaica. So when I heard about a game set in the Caribbean, a Eurogame, one in the top 100 on BoardGameGeek, it was already pretty much a must-buy before I knew much about it.
