45: Clash of Cultures: Monumental Edition

In brief: As a mixed-media gaming website, it would be remiss of us not to focus on board game adaptations of popular video games wherever possible. Whilst Clash of Cultures: Monumental Edition is not a direct adaptation of your favourite civ game, it is without doubt the one that “feels” most like it. You can read more about it in our review.

44: Sheriff of Nottingham (Second Edition)

In brief: Few games feature open negotiation as finely balanced as that of Sheriff of Nottingham – and even fewer keep you laughing throughout! A game of bluffing, double-dealing and deception, this second edition features new artwork (which is not to all tastes) and a few minor additions, but is now much more readily available than its forebear. Not a game for everyone, but one of the best in its class, you can read our review.

43: Renegade

In brief: The debut game from long time YouTuber and blogger, Ricky Royal, Renegade is a complex and thematic area control, drafting and hand management game that is only playable solo or cooperatively. Renegade is fairly heavy, with complex rules and lots of colloquial language, but it’s worth persevering with, especially if you do appreciate a challenging puzzle to solve. Here’s our original review.

42: Through the Ages: a New Story of Civilization

In brief: Through the Ages is Vlaada Chvátil’s magnum opus, and it has held its position in the top three games of all time on BoardGameGeek consistently since it was first released. Through the Ages is a stiflingly heavy but beautifully realised interpretation of Sid Meier’s Civilization series that plays out over three to four hours. If that sounds like your cup of tea, you can read more about it in our review.

41: Railroad Rivals

In brief: If you’re looking for a fast paced, simple to learn railroad game that isn’t Ticket to Ride, then you could do a lot worse than to consider Railroad Rivals. This light, fun, stock trading and route building game is one of our favourite train games and I particularly like how it weaves just a few basic core mechanics together in a cohesive, easy to follow way. Here’s our review.
