Best Games of 2019

Best Board Game Apps of 2019
Ars Technica has posted a roundup of their favorite board game adaptations released last year. "I’ve ranked my eight best of the year based on app quality, play experience, and purchase price."

Most Important Games of the Decade
Meeple Mountain has posted a roundup of the games they feel were the most important releases in the past decade. "The entries in this list have been selected for reasons as diverse as the games themselves, but efforts were made to highlight innovation, popularity, and games that had a particularly strong impact on those that followed and the industry as a whole."

Nevada City Announced
Rio Grande Games has announced Nevada City, set to be released at the end of the month. "In Nevada City, each player represents a founding family, determined to shape the town's growth in the 1800's.

Aftershock: San Francisco & Venice Set For Release
Stronghold Games is set to release area control game, Aftershock: San Francisco & Venice, later this month. "Players will spend money to acquire cards, which are used to increase population, build bridges, and determine where aftershocks occur. Negotiate with other players to score areas on the placement board."

Sub Terra II (Meeple Mountain): “A solid, enjoyable co-op game that I’ve had fun with playing solo as well as with others.”

Wavelength (Space-Biff): “As with many of the best solipsistic word games, the moment of the reveal is the ultimate highlight. It’s the moment that separates right from wrong, literary giants from midgets, and everlasting couples from future divorcees. There will be gutters of disappointment and titters of delight.”

Mechanica (What’s Eric Playing): “It’s a game I love to show to people because the components are cool, the theme is great, the color palette is strong; I just want to sand down one rough edge of the gameplay and really turn it into something that I truly love.”
