Explore the Final Frontier in Ganymede the Board Game

Ganymede

I dreamed of exploring space as a child. I loved staring at the stars at night. Growing up in rural Wisconsin allowed for me to have a good view of the night sky. Dreaming of that exploration can be made a little more real in Ganymede the board game.

In Ganymede you will play as a corporation that is seeking to colonize our solar system. Collect colonists of different types on Earth, use Mars as a stop off point, and then fly off to parts of our solar system!

Top Online Gaming Platforms that You Should Check Out

It seems that more and more of us are looking to play our games using online options. Friends move away, COVID-19 happened, and just other reasons that drive us to online tools rather than our tabletops. In this article we’ll give you some of our top online gaming platforms that you should check out.

For each platform I will give it a quick review on the pluses and minuses of using it. I will also give you a rating on how much I liked it. I am using a 1-10 rating with 10 being as good if not better than in person gaming and a 1 being that this platform is like seeing a blue screen of death on your Windows computer.

Conesy’s Top 10 Favorite Board Games of All Time

I was chatting with a friend the other day when I was asked what are my top 5 board games. I thought about it for a bit, but then wasn’t really able to answer it right then. So I sat down, looked at my collection on BoardGameGeek, and started to make some tough decisions.

I am sure this list will flux a bit over the years. I am sure sometime in the future I will end up putting out a new top 10 list for this very subject. It’s hard to predict with the number of games that are coming out which games I will still be in love with and which games will fall a bit out of favor.

Not all of these games are in print anymore, but all of these games are very good.

Here’s Conesy’s top 10 favorite board games of all time. Enjoy

You Don’t Want to Let Time Slip Away in Pendulum

Pendulum

This wasn’t a game that had grabbed my attention originally. I am not sure quite what it was, but this game, like so many, was lost in the ocean of game releases.

Never fear though, my wife had flagged it and when it went on sale decided to order it. It arrived as a pleasant surprise game for us to get to the table and play.
