Some Games I have enjoyed playing lately….

  • Splendor – wow! A favorite among all my gamer friends. Simple rules. Fast turns.  Great look and feel. Lots of strategy and opponent watching.
  • Compounded – Amazing game visually and strategy wise. A real blast.
  • King of The Elves – A card game that is quite challenging and fun.
  • Outpost – A Eurogame that is a blast with a lot of people.
