Kemet – fast combat. There’s so much to like about the game. It is not a camp and build your forces game, points are won by attacking. Games are quick, but have depth. The theme is awesome, and the miniatures are some of the best in any board game. While the different factions don’t have any differences between them, the Power Tiles allow a player to build a custom faction/tech tree everytime they play. Fills the same kind of niche Nexus Ops does at times, but removes the randomness of the dice in combat.

Amerigo – family favorite. This has surpassed our other family games like Carcassonne, Setters of Catan, and Ticket to Ride. It scales very well from 2-4 players, and has a set number of rounds. While it may appear a little overwhelming for newbs in the way some Feld Point Salads are, the color coordination of the cubes to actions really comes clear quickly. Variation of the map, and the randomness of the tower can completely change up things from one game to the next.
It has puzzle elements, a little resource management, and simple mechanics like racing around the map to establish ports that have good family appeal.

I did pretty decent reviews with more details for each of them, check ’em out…

Anyone who enjoys Cyclades might want to check out Kemet as well. Full action and attacks from the get go.

Amerigo might be one of the easier heavy games Feld has made (and probably one of the more thematic as well).

Great choices RevBob! Kemet is a ridiculously awesome game. It is all about fighting from the very beginning. I love the powers, the miniatures, the combat, and everything else. It is definitely worth exploring.

And I’ve heard things about Amerigo, too. 🙂

Congrats on being the Sacred Shelf Spotlight this week @RevBob – but no shirking the meta game 😛 Why are these two games specifically on your shelf space? 🙂

Personally, I have no familiarity with either of these, but Kemet looks interesting and the title of @Mike B’s review gave me a good laugh! 🙂
