It has been a long time since I have shared a tabletop wishlist on the blog, and since it has been a while since I have bought a new game (since I am waiting on some Kickstarter rewards to arrive) I figured now is a good time for an updated list.
These are just a few games that I have on my list, cause the list is always growing and changing thanks to all of the cool Kickstarters coming out. But these 4 have been on the list for a while now, so figured they deserved some limelight.
Sagrada is a set-collecting, dice-rolling game where you need to use your dice to complete beautiful stain glass windows. For more details, I look to my good friend Board Game Geek to help me out here.
“In more detail, each player builds a stained glass window by building up a grid of dice on their player board. Each board has some restrictions on which color or shade (value) of die can be placed there. Dice of the same shade or color may never be placed next to each other. Dice are drafted in player order, with the start player rotating each round, snaking back around after the last player drafts two dice. Scoring is variable per game based on achieving various patterns and varieties of placement…as well as bonus points for dark shades of a particular hidden goal color.”
So I am very much a cat person. Like extremely a cat person. So I am already interested in any game that has a feline focus. Cat Lady is a card drafting game where you play as a cat lady trying to collect the most cats and making sure you can keep them all fed. You also draw toys, catnip, and costumes to aid you in your cat collections.
World’s Fair 1893
In World’s Fair 1893, you are competing to gain reputation points for your developments in various sections of the world’s fair. Players gain reputation points for having the most number of supporters in an area and for gathering the most tickets in each round. The leaders in an area also receive approval for exhibit proposals they have gathered that match the area. Players gain reputation points at the end of the game based on the breadth and diversity of their approved exhibits. I find this game interesting because of the theme.
Welcome to the Dungeon
Welcome to the Dungeon is a push-your-luck dungeon delve in which 2-4 players take turns essentially daring each other to go into a dungeon with less equipment than they start off with while filling the dungeon with monsters. Players can win the game by winning 2 rounds or get eliminated from the game by losing 2 rounds.
I first saw this game played on Tabletop by Geek and Sundry, and it’s whimsical feeling of fighting monsters, and the logic involved in putting monsters in the dungeon and risking yourself if you end up having to enter the dungeon. It’s an interesting concept that I would like to play, thus why it is on the list.
Do you have any board games on your wishlist that you can’t wait to get? Let me know with a comment.
