So, living in the great white north of British Columbia, the board game community up here is a bit sparse and so often I find myself rolling the dice (so to speak) on the games that I buy, because there isn’t really a space to try things out in advanced. Now, thankfully these gambles have worked out pretty well without many stinkers coming through. I’m hoping you might be able to offer your thoughts on three of the games from my Wish List that I am currently the most interested in:
Planet, Catacombs, Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space.
So, what are your thoughts on these three - are they worth picking up when they finally become available? A little bit about me, when it comes to board games theme and creative design go a long way (for example, Root is probably one of my all time favourites and the theme has a lot to do with that). I also am not someone who really likes to collect the same type of game over and over - so for example I’m less interested in filling my collection with lots of Euros or lots of Worker Placement games or lots of legacy games. I try to keep things relatively unique when possible.
SO what do you think? Are these games as much fun as they appear?
