This is in my opinion the best Dominion expansion. Fantastic new cards and absolutely love the feeling of wealth and prosperity it gives as you play.

I would not recommend playing this one with brand new players though.

Purchased multiple core sets so I could make custom decks, that should tell you how much I love this game. This is a very challenging game at times and that is one of my favorite things about it.

Also love that it can be played solo, which sometimes is my favorite way to play. Highly recommended!

Got this at Gencon this year and everyone in my group loved it. It really is like a smaller version of Arkham Horror that doesn’t take hours to play.

This is another great cooperative game, especially for families and smaller children. After a few plays I think a lot of hardcore gamers might get bored but for a family game this one really shines.

This is a great game for families and children but still has enough strategy to please a hardcore gamer. Was surprised how good this game is to be honest, got to love watching your opponents men get eaten by a shark.

Love this one, took a while to get it to the table but once I did my group wanted to play it again. Fantastic components and beautiful artwork. Best way to describe this for me would be like a much better version of Risk in Greek Mythology with a great bidding mechanism.

This is one of my favorite games to teach newcomers to worker placement games. I got the wife to play it one night and she loved it. Really great game

Love this game! Great components and a real brain burner, one of the best deduction games I have come across. It plays up to 6 and is fun with any number but I think this game really shines as a 2 player with one person controlling all the police.

This is one of my favorites, I love hidden traitor games and this one has wonderful gameplay. Only downside is it can be hard getting some people to sit down for a 3 hour game.

This is one of my go to games whenever I have 6 or more people. Simple game with fast play and minimal downtime. Easy to teach even non gamers.
