While there are a couple issues, Hoyuk does a great job blending an easy to learn game with enough strategy to keep the game interesting.
While it looks pretty simple at first glimpse, The Thief of Baghdad has a decent amount of strategy once you start to play the game.
While it never reaches the level of Ticket to Ride, Elfenland has some good ideas for a light to moderate strategy game.
World Monuments is a unique and fun little abstract euro game that fails to be a great game due to a lack of control.
Bring Out Yer Dead kind of has a morbid theme but some fun and simple mechanics make it a good game.
While the game is not perfect, Winner’s Circle is reminiscent of most Reiner Knizia games by being accessible while also having quite a bit of strategy.
While not the best game ever, Times Square does a good job blending a simple to play game with some interesting strategic options.
One of the best feelings when playing a board game is that feeling when a game comes out of nowhere and really impresses you. While Clans is not for everyone, I was pleasantly surprised by its’ simplistic yet strategic gameplay.
The original Ticket to Ride is one of, if not my favorite board game. Ticket to Ride is such a great game because it is an easy to pick up and well balanced game that adds enough strategy to keep the game interesting. Seeing that I love Ticket to Ride so much, I had high expectations for the Europe sequel. I really wasn’t disappointed either.
