Board Game Top 100 (2024) Part 10 (78-77)

#78 Long Shot The Dice Game

In Long Shot The Dice Game players roll dice to move horses around a race track. During the race you can use money earned from rolls to buy horses and then enable those horses to move when a different horse's number is rolled, increasing their chances of winning. You can also place bets on your and other horses and use special powers to move some horses further or other horses back. Long Shot The Dice Game is fast and fun and it's my 78th favorite game of all time.

#77 Targi

Targi is a two-player only game. Each player has three pawns that they are able to place around the outside of the game board which is a five by five grid made up of cards. When you place a pawn on the outside of the board it gives you a resource or other special benefit. And at the row and column intersection where your pawns meet you gain a card to add to your tableau. You should get two things each round. 

You can't place your pawn directly across from one of your opponents pawns or across from a special pawn which I think represents a tax officer, because this pawn travels around the board as a counter for the game, and each time it reaches a corner of the board you have to pay taxes. Your tableau is a three by four grid and creates your own little camp of different locations that will provide you victory points and other special powers.

Targi is an awesome, tight and challenging two-player worker placement game. Once the tax collector makes it all the way around the board, the game is over and scores are tallied. The player with the most points is the winner. Targi is my 77th favorite game of all time.
