Santorini -Nichole Davis

  • Name of Game: Santorini
  • Publisher: Roxley
  • Year Published: 2016
  • Type of Game: Strategy, building
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Play Time: 20 Mins
  • Rule Complexity: Easy
  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • Bits: Nice, cool little building models
  • Overall Rating: 5 Meeples

I like Santorini because it is a really quick and fun strategy game that is set in the Greek Pantheon. You have to try and out maneuver your opponent whilst building up to your own goal. It plays very quickly with a whole lot of replayability given the numerous choices of Greek Gods to mix and match play styles with.

The Mind- Boyce Asquith

  • Name of Game: The Mind
  • Publisher: Pandasaurus
  • Year Published: 2018
  • Type of Game: Card Game
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Play Time: 20 Mins
  • Rule Complexity: Easy
  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • Bits: Excellent Cards
  • Overall Rating: 5 Meeples

When you play The Mind, you are trying to play the cards that are in the collective hand of your fellow players in ascending sequential order. There is a catch, you cannot talk about the cards in your hand. Each of the cards is numbered between 1 and 100. At first, you only start with one card in your hand, but as you increase in level you increase the number of cards you need to sequence and you gain abilities that let you learn some information about what is in your ally’s hand. Try to reach the highest level together!

Reef – Dani Kennedy

  • Name of Game: Reef
  • Publisher: Next Move Games
  • Year Published: 2018
  • Type of Game: Tile placement,
  • Difficulty: Medium
  • Play Time: 45 Mins
  • Rule Complexity: Medium
  • Number of Players: 2-4
  • Bits: Awesome reef pieces that are fun to stack together and play with
  • Overall Rating: 3 Meeples

If you enjoy games like Splendor and Century Spice Road, then you should check out Reef. In this game you play as a coral reef, changing and growing with each round. Score points by playing cards out of your hand that show different color patterns. I say this game is a medium on difficulty if you’ve never played Century Spice Road. But if you’ve played that, it’s easy to understand.
