Does the game rely on mechanics like card drafting (7 Wonders), deck building (Dominion), or are otherwise dominant on cards as a core mechanic then look no further.
Hobby gaming has grown over the years. More people are discovering hobby games and the ease of acquiring both new and unique games continues to grow. Because of the shear volume of games available, knowing how to branch out can seem intimidating. Let’s dive into WicosDice’s 5 best games to take you beyond Monopoly!

Welcome to Kickstart Monday! Kickstart Monday is our weekly series where we feature two or more crowdfunded projects in the tabletop gaming industry. This week, we are looking at two games that cater to a variety of play styles.
Dice Trucking is a Print and Play game by Derik Duley. In this game you construct and send a space transport on peril filled runs. Turns are simultaneous, which means minimal downtime for players. Throughout the game, you work on building and repairing your ship and racing across space to deliver cargo and earn credits. At $3 USD to back, this looks to be a fun filler game to add to your collection.
The second game this week has both a Roleplaying and Card Game version. Check out the Ultimate Dungeon Showdown by Zombie Orpheus. In both versions you are recruiting an adventuring party and battling for the title of Ultimate Dungeon Champion. Back either the card game, roleplaying game, or both, depending on your interest. Either way you get an adventure for you and your friends as well as options for some fun and unique add-ons.

Seven Wonders was a great card drafting game when it was released. With more of us looking to entertain ourselves at home, it just doesn’t work as well in the two player game. 7 Wonders Duel puts all of that together in a little two player box.

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!
