It’s another Monday, which means stuff. Oddly enough, this weeks theme appears to be Big Space, with more space combat and exploration than you can shake a proton torpedo at.
Given big space is the theme, it’s unsurprising that several huge 4x (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) games dominate the lineup. Restocks of Twilight Imperium, Warhammer 40,000 Forbidden Stars and the often sought Eclipse supply enough warring space empires to sate the palette of the space empire connoisseur.
This isn’t to say that space is all about deep strategy though. Games like Space Alert, Galaxy Trucker and Star Munchkin are riotous fun as starships explode and crew panic.
And for those of a wargaming bent, we haven’t forgotten you either with a full line restock of the critically acclaimed Star Wars: Armada. If you’ve ever wanted to experience the satisfaction of what Kotaku gleefully called “1000 guns at 1000 paces while sipping a nice cup of tea“, then you owe it to yourself to try out this Golden Geek nominee.
Space not your thing? Frantically chase pandas in Takenoko, duel for control of Westeros with the Game of Thrones LCG or ride the rails in Ticket to Ride.
Something for everyone on a Monday.
Have a great week folks.
