40: Bunny Kingdom

In brief: There’s always room at B3 Towers for an anthropomorphic drafting and area control game from the creator of Magic: The Gathering, but even if that weren’t true, then Bunny Kingdom would have a pass just for being so darn cute. As it happens, Bunny Kingdom is more than just a pretty face — it’s a tight, fast paced and beautiful looking game that is sure to appeal to a wide range of players. Read more about it, here.

39: Aristeia!

In brief: Although the last few years have seen a strong resurgence in arena based tabletop blood sports, it’s been a while since I saw such a game that truly innovated. Aristeia! does exactly that, delivering a tight, team based miniatures game that uses highly individual personalities and card driven gameplay to excite players of all abilities and ages. Here’s our original review.

38: Kashgar

In brief: We’ve had deck building games, drafting games and hand management games, but what about caravan building games? In Kashgar, the players must fill out three separate caravans filled with character cards, all of whom have a role to play in trading spices and fulfilling orders. This excellent card game is compact, fast and fun, so check out our detailed write up.

37: Chronicles of Crime

In brief: A few of the games on this list feature integration with mobile apps and other technology, but Chronicles of Crime is the only one to use augmented reality that simply requires the players to have a modern smartphone. On top of that, it’s a clever, attractive and very, very enjoyable detective mystery that innovates in all the right ways without losing sight of what makes a good tabletop game. We reviewed it here.

36: 1066: Tears to Many Mothers

In brief: Historic card games come around relatively infrequently and when they do, they never look as incredible as 1066. A one or two player game that recreates the most pivotal battle in English history in glorious technicolour, 1066 is fast paced, straightforward and fiercely competitive. Fans of history or head to head games should check out our review, here.
