Discussion on: Interesting Board Game Mechanics

I absolutely love Galaxy Trucker! My only gripe with it is that it's quite difficult to learn. Because of this, any new player that joins us is destined to have a bad time.

I'd love to give GloomHaven a try, but I think I'd rather someone else taught it me rather than buying/learning it myself 😅

Few of my favourites:

  • Roll Player (with Monsters and Minions expansion)
  • Concordia
  • Cosmic Encounter
  • Tak
  • Azul
  • Lords of Waterdeep
  • Call to Adventure

Totally agree on both points - Galaxy Trucker is pretty punshing for your first several games! Gloomhaven is also definitely an investment, and it's not everyone's cup of tea, so it's worth having it shown to you first. We actually completely missed a rule and made the game a lot easier for ourselves in our first two scenarios, which made it all that much harder when we started playing tougher scenarios with the right rules!

Thanks for list, I've been wanting to try both Lords of Waterdeep and Azul. I'll be on the lookout!
