We also talk about online gaming platforms. The platforms that were mentioned:
My wife recently placed an order online for a few games and Viscounts of the West Kingdom needed to be one of the games.
This game made it into our The Best New Board Game Releases for your 2020 Holiday Shopping list for many reasons. Since we love the other two “West Kingdom” games so much, this was a no brainer to add to our order.
We have been anxiously anticipating the third game in this series. Since it was ordered we watched the tracking impatiently, frothing at how excited we are to try this game. When it finally arrived we immediately pulled it out of the box and dashed to the game table.
- Players: 1-4
- Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 90 and 120 minutes
- Publisher: Renegade Game Studios
- Designer: Shem Phillips and S J Macdonald
It’s the time of the year to be festive. With many of us, we are looking at our favorite online retailers this year to purchase and possibly ship gifts to our friends and loved ones. With so many games out there, WiscoDice is here to provide some guidance as to what to buy your board gaming friends.
It’s worth noting that we have not played any of these titles. These are games that we are excited about ourselves. After reading reviews, watching game play, and doing enough research to make ourselves a little jolly, this is the list that we settled on.
For this list, we have looked at the top games that have either just released or are expected to release before the Christmas (December 25th) holiday. The list will feature both stand alone board games as well as expansions to popular games. Gamers can be very difficult to buy for. Anything that has just released going into the holiday season is something your gamer just might not have in their collections yet!
I hope you are excited for our holiday board game top 10 shopping list!!!
Every year my friends organize a gaming weekend we call Cabincon. We all chip in to rent a rural Wisconsin house and bring enough alcohol, food, and board games to last us usually about a month. The event is a blast! One of the best parts is all of the exposure to everyone else’s favorite games!
At our 2019 event I was introduced to Architects of the West Kingdom which is a brilliant worker placement game. I had to immediately pick it up at my local game store and get it to the table at home. Not much time after did I realize that Renegade Game Studios was producing a trilogy of these “West Kingdom” games and that it was all ready released. Recently I was able to head to the store and pick up my copy.
