Four Wish List Board Games 2018

Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig (2018)

This is a tile placement castle building game generally considered ideal for large groups. It wasn't on my radar at all until I saw it featured on a board game video of "favorite comfort games." This same video recommended Dorf Romantik which Julie and I got and LOVE! As for the high player count, the couple in the video are playing the two-player variant and say that they prefer the game at two players and won't play it any other way. Sold!

Ganymede (2018)

Another recommendation by the same video reviewers mentioned above a YouTube board game review channel called "Allies or Enemies." It's a great channel and their reviews are solid. They speak fondly of Ganymede often. We love space themes and this one keeps coming up. I'd really love to give it a try.

Fertility (2018)

This is a tile laying game where players place domino shaped pieces to a central board and gather resources based on where their tiles are placed. Gathered resources are then placed on scoring tiles. Each player has their own scoring tiles that they will purchase during play. The tile mechanics make me think of Barenpark or Gingerbread House. Taking scoring goals as you play reminds me of Floriferous. Both of these are games and game mechanisms that I really enjoy. Zee Garcia at the Dice Tower gave Fertility a strong positive review. I also like the theme of developing farm lands along the Nile.

Roll for Adventure (2018)

Another cooperative dungeon crawl kind of game. This one is all about dice placement and manipulation. Julie and I love dice games. This one looks to be a great one, but unlike Dice Throne Adventures, this one seems like it will be super easy to get to the table.
