We’re almost at the end, folks! 2016 is coming to a close. It’s been one of my most interesting years, for sure. I’ve met so many new folks in the board-gaming world, and I myself have gone through a lot of personal and professional changes. I’m glad to move on to bigger and better things in the upcoming year, and to leave behind 2016, aka “celebrity killer” year (I’m still super bummed about David Bowie, Prince, George Michael and Carrie Fisher — and hopefully nobody else). So without further ado, I’m counting down the best games that I played for the first time this year.
Two weeks ago, my friend @idontknowrules purchased this game Leaving Earth, which sounded like a game theme he and I were randomly talking about a few weeks before that. He still isn’t quite sure how he ran across the BGG listing for it, but we’re so glad he did. The guys and I have played the game twice this week. And we can’t get enough of it. My other friend even printed out a copy of the rules so he could make his own notes!
