A D&D adventure for people who like slogging through jungles and wearing mosquito repellent. It's better than it sounds.

Twilight Imperium is an epic empire-building game of interstellar conflict, trade, and struggle for power. Being an "epic" game, it is also a game that can take hours to play, and often requires arranging a special game day just to play it.

If you are searching for the definitive best of 2018 boardgame guide, look further. This isn’t it. This is a woefully incomplete and wholly inaccurate guide of the best and most notable games that I personally played in 2018. You won’t find your traditional categories here and, I would venture to say, you won’t find the traditional winners. This isn’t your father’s “best of” list…unless you happen to be one of my kids’ reading this, then, actually, this is your father’s “best of" list.

It is the best bit of the holidays. The saggy, comfortable drift between Christmas and New Year when the house is still full of good things but the stress of entertaining has waned. When the TV and the conversation and the drinks run dry, there's only one thing left to fill the time. Games.

In 2011, Stronghold Games announced that they were re-printing the old family favorite Suvive!. And there was much rejoicing! There is always much enthusiasm when a new edition of a long out of print game from our childhood is released, but once the nostalgia wears off, do those games actually have any staying power? Did the nostalgia wear off for you? Or did the re-print of Survive! survive? What do you think of the expansions? Survive: Space Attack!? The 30th Anniversary Edition? Do you love it or hate it? Do you still play it?...

When I sat down to write this, it was going to be an awards piece. Something to celebrate the very best games I've played this year. It was all planned out: I had a series of categories, a winner in each and an overall game of the year. A pleasant exercise in rewarding excellence to cap off an excellent year of releases.
