The Best Board Games of 2022 …So Far

GenCon2022-Haul-1
So Many Games to Choose From

2022 is far from over, but there have been a plethora of board game releases in 2022. If one thing is clear, it’s that board game publishers are still going strong by releasing new board game titles. With so many to choose from WiscoDice wanted to drill into five of the best board games of 2022 (so far…).

We did put a few selection criteria in place to help create this list. For our selection we are only selecting complete board games, so no expansions. We gave preference to games we have actually had a chance to play. WiscoDice was not sponsored or received any review copies of the games in this list so any games that we have actually played it is because we played at friends or conventions, bought a copy ourselves, or were able to play them online.

That said, let’s take a look at the best board games of 2022!

Conesy’s Top Games of 2021

Every year I like to take a look back at what games I really enjoyed. 2021 has been a great year for gaming. With online gaming platforms like Board Game Arena and Tabletopia being added as ways to play the games I love I have had more opportunities this year to play games than any year previously. This is a year that has seen me get back to the table with role-playing games, come back to in-person gaming, and have seen me paint well over 200 figures as well!

Just a few statistics to start things off. This is by far my best year ever for playing as many, and as many unique games!

  • I played over 662 games.
  • My top venue was Board Game Arena.
  • I played over 148 unique games.
  • March was my best gaming month, with 80 games played.
  • My collection grew by approximately 100 games toping now at 605 titles including expansions.

Let’s dive in and take a look at some of the top games that Conesy played in 2021!

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
