Do you like abstract games like Azul & Sagrada? @BoardAndDice recently released their own colourful abstract game - Mandala Stones - and I've put it through its paces. You can read my review of it here - https://punchboard.co.uk/mandala-stones-review/ #boardgames
A first play of the utterly gorgeous Cryo from @Zmangames_ @TomJolly19 & @LukeLaurieGames . It's a really solid medium-weight worker-placement with a decent amount of interaction, and tons of choices, I really enjoyed it #boardgames4
More Galaxy Trucker is always a good thing!
Paul Grogan of @GamingRulesVids shows you what's in the new #GalaxyTrucker box for the very first time. Be aware of no spare space there! 👀https://youtu.be/nBiKJM9T68Q
A new @AlexxPfister game coming from @Capstone_Games and @dlp_games ... It's safe to say I'm more than a little bit excited to see how Boonlake turns out! And the expansion for Maracaibo is on the way too, what fantastic news!
Boonlake is a new @AlexxPfister game coming from @dlp_games in Germany and @Capstone_Games in the U.S. You can explore the landscapes, build houses and settlements, raise cattle, produce raw materials, and develop an infrastructure!
