War Chest has surprisingly robust velveteen bags that get nicely worked in over time. Rummaging through the heavy clay chips is one of my favourite touchy-feelies in gaming.
Catacombs gets another nod from me, especially the room obstacles, which are delightful to collect and slap down between rooms, clack-clack-clack!
Root has all those wonderful meeples… those slippery, slippery meeples. This game sucks for component quality IMO, but man are those two big, chunky dodecahedrons nice to roll.
Container is a new one for me, and honestly I don’t value the resin ships or overall size of the damn thing, but it’s impossible to deny how good those containers feel. Any time I need to grab one or two I make sure to roll em around in my hand a bit before placing them back down.
Hive is the champion. Bakelite wins.
