Game Information

Game Name
Quarriors!, published in 2011, was the first "Dice Pool Building Game," modeled on the deck building genre but substituting dice for the cards. It was a huge hit, winning Origins Award for “Best Family, Party or Children’s Game” in 2013. It recieved 5 expansions and was eventually the basis for the Dice Master series. A new edition, Quarriors!: Qultimate Quedition, which includes the base game and all five expansions, is scheduled for release later this month, which seems to indicate that Quarriors! remains popular.

Stone Age Board Game

Game Information

Game Name
The Anniversary Edition of Stone Age was recently released. That means this game is old, but clearly still popular enough that Z-man believes people will spend an extra $30 for a deluxe anniversary edition. Word is that the leather dice cup in the Anniversary Edition stinks just as much as it did in the original Stone Age.  But does the game stink too? What's your opinion?

I generally dislike spending time and energy streamlining my game designs. To people who know my work, that’s probably a pretty obvious statement. Given the choice, I’ll always opt to move onto a fresh project rather than polish and tweak and refine.
Tigris & Euphrates Board Game
U ubarose Updated February 28, 2019 1866   1

Does that make it a classic? However, many are now saying that the recently released Yellow & Yangtze surpasses Tigris & Euphrates. What do you think? Is Yellow & Yangtze or Tigris & Euphrates the better game? Do you one, or both or neither?

When you have a family of six, as I do, getting everyone on the same page or interested in gaming on the same night is a rarity. When the stars do align, the number of interested or attending members can vary, along with how long they will be engaged in actually playing. Card games have virtually zero set-up time, don't require a huge time commitment and can accommodate a flexible number of players. The following card games are the ones that consistently provide the best experience for my family.
