The Castles of Burgundy 2-4 Players Tile Laying Some games are just lovely to play regardless of if you win or not. The Castles of Burgundy remains such a fun and pleasant game as you fill out your board with tiles and activate their abilities. Easy, thoughtful and so relaxing!

Stroganov 1-4 Players Action Selection Stroganov just bowled me over, it was fantastic fun! In it you're exploring Siberia, travelling further and further over the seasons. I love the art, the way you string together your actions and that EVERY character has a male and female option. My brain is burning just thinking about playing it again 😀
