👎🏻 The Office DVD Board Game – Look, I love The Office, but some of the questions aren’t related to the show, some categories take away your progress for no reason, and some just hurt the active player. It’s just not great.
😄 Funkoverse Nightmare Before Christmas & Back to the Future
😄 Penny Papers Adventures: The Temple of Apikhabou – Santa’s Secret Lair
😄 Ticket to Ride: Switzerland – The change for the wild cards was so weird, but really made you rethink strategies.
🤷🏻♀️ Foodies – Similar to Space Base, but much lighter
🤷🏻♀️ Bosk – Very dry gameplay, which was kind of disappointing.
😄 Sovereign Skies Expansions: Tides of Triumph, Houses Rising, Cosmic Calamity – All great additions to the game that made it more interesting.
🤷🏻♀️ Architects of the West Kingdom
😄 A Gentle Rain
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Block Ness
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Zombie Kidz Evolution
🤷🏻♀️ Escape Room the Game VR – Down Below
🤷🏻♀️ Escape Room the Game VR – Submarine – The VR just felt a little unnecessary to me in these
🤷🏻♀️/😄 Railroad Ink Challenge – Shining Yellow Edition – Still not one of my favorite roll and writes, but I’m coming around a bit more.
👎🏻 Concordia Venus Expansion – I don’t like this game because I don’t ever feel like I’m doing anything, and with 6 players, it just made it so long.
😄 Decktective: Nightmare in the Mirror – These games are so cool, and I’m so bad at them. lol
😄 Five Tribes: Whims of the Sultan – Cool expansion! I think it really changed up the game well.
