Countdown to Gen Con 2020: Days 170 to 161


Every morning on our Instagram, we’re featuring a board game along with the number of days remaining until Gen Con. We’re trying to do a different game every day, though this might require some trips to Doughnuts and Dragons once we exhaust our personal collections.

Games Featured:

These ten included some of the newest additions to our collection (Space Base, Everdell: Pearlbrook, and Ceylon) as well as some of our older favorites (Catan and Photosynthesis). Both Love Letter and Ganz Schön Clever are available as apps, which is a great way to try out a game with less financial commitment.

Twilight Imperium is such a beast that we’ve only played it once, and partially at that. Shut Up and Sit Down made an excellent documentary about TI that we highly recommend.

Element feels a bit like Onitama expanded for more players. Santorini falls somewhere in-between those two in strategic difficulty. We’ve recently bought the Sagrada expansion, Passion, but have yet to give it a try.
