Discover New Favorites: Let the Exploration begin!

Explore and discover great games

Explorable Favorites

With board games becoming more popular and mainstream there are a TON of great games to choose from! Which game will you and those you play with enjoy the most? What game will spend more time being played rather than gathering dust on a shelf? And where do you look when trying to find a great new game?

Introducing BoardGaming.com’s Explorable Favorites!

How it works
Each Monday we’ll select one BoardGaming.com member at random and two of the games from their Favorites shelf. These games will be made explorable until the next Monday when a new member and two of their favorite games are selected. News articles titled “Explorable Favorites” will announce each new set.

Making Discovery Fun!
A game that is made explorable will reward you with BG gold, Gamer XP and Explorer XP as you read and rate reviews, watch videos, visit the game’s official website, and do other things to learn about the game. You’ll also complete quests along the way! You can see your quest progress on the Explorer Quest page.

Get Started! This Week’s Explorable Games

This first round of Explorable Favorites is from BoardGaming.com member Morlimar. We broke the rules a bit for this first round because Morlimar wasn’t a random choice, he’s one of our game reviewers :) Because we broke the rules we made three games from his favorites shelf explorable:

(note: Some of his other favorites are part of the Cooperative Game Collection, so they’re explorable too!)

I love that we are able to explore again. We are going to need some more reviews for Libertalia though

I like the new approach to exploration quests. It seems like a great idea to have this as a regular ongoing thing. It seems like you guys have been doing a lot of work on the site in the recent past, and it’s great to see some new life and activity. Keep up the great work!

I am directly blaming the Explorable Games Quest for my purchase of Tokaido! :)
