Nichole Davis – Tiny Towns

  • Name of Game: Tiny Towns
  • Rating: 5 Meeples
  • Publisher: AEG
  • Year Published: 2019
  • Type of Game: Strategy, Planning
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Number of Players: 1-5

Tiny Towns is a really fun strategy game where you have you own 4×4 grid with which to build your tiny town on. The way it works, you put resource blocks down in a specific pattern to build buildings and whatnot, you get points for various layouts that change up each game depending on what cards are drawn in the beginning. Each turn you get to pick a resource you need, the trick being that everyone has to pick up that same resource and find a place on their own boards for it. There are also special unique buildings that each person gets, so no one’s town will ever be exactly the same. It’s really cool to see how everyone goes about making their towns differently when everyone is given the same resources in the same order. The bits are really nice as well, wooden and colorfully painted, with adorable tiny buildings. This is honestly one of my favorite games. You can also rent Tiny Towns before you buy!

Boyce Asquith- Dungeon Mayhem

  • Name of Game: Dungeon Mayhem
  • Rating: 4.5 Meeples
  • Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
  • Year Published: 2018
  • Type of Game: Card, Family
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Number of Players: 2-4

Dungeon Mayhem is a light 2 to 4 player card game where the goal is to be the last one standing. Players choose a character from a D&D adventuring party and play that character’s deck to do their best to defeat their former allies and friends. A quick game with minimal set-up and space requirements perfect for a small desk or table. The expansions for Dungeon Mayhem also add a good amount to the base game!

Dani Kennedy- Everdell

  • Name of Game: Everdell
  • Rating: 4 Meeples
  • Publisher: Starling Games
  • Year Published: 2018
  • Type of Game: Worker Placement, Drafting
  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Number of Players: 1-4

Everdell has become a hit amongst gamers of all levels. This game is a great introduction to the worker placement type game. Everdell is played in 4 seasons (rounds), earn points based on which cards you play into your tableau. Adding buildings to the busy woodland streets of Everdell gains you different points. The player with the most points at the end of Winter is the winner. Everdell is easy to learn, play and is so adorable! The only slight downfalls of the game is the resource tree that is in the middle of the table can be easily broken if not assembled carefully. And the footprint of the game is large, it can’t really be played on a small table. But the pros of the game defiantly outweigh the cons. We have a copy available to Rent before you buy!
