The best game of 2021- innovative, forward thinking, and divisive.
A magnificent gamebook-influenced solo RPG with a stunning, unique vision.
A brilliant, thoughtful mass-market design that shows how much you can do with relatively little- and it’s also an amazing Alien experience.
A vibrant, robust setting and some good but possibly overwrought rules packed in a typically appealing Osprey package.
A sweet, darling book (with some teeth) that offers some prehistoric fun for Troika!
An excellent horror sourcebook for the immensely popular game.
A brilliant, sprawling but immensely playable design with the best implementation of time travel in a board game to date.
A hugely accessible, fun to play game that deftly represents some of the top Eurogame design trends of the time.
A boring, badly developed letdown that fails to meet the expectations set by previous Warhammer Quest titles.
A solid game that makes up for a lack of innovation with a great setting and an awesome look.
