With 2017 still in the rearview mirror, it seems like a perfect opportunity to take a look back at some of its games, as we did with our recent Top 5. For whatever reason, when looking back at the games that we bought and played last year, there were quite a few word games. I’m sure part of this is our bias towards the genre (even before getting into hobby board games, Scattergories has always been a perennial favorite), but even still it seems like there were a greater than usual number of new word games released. And even more, it seems like most of these were on the “party” end of the spectrum, accommodating 6, 8, or even more players! In addition, these tend to be easy to learn and play, so are great for family or friends who may not be as into board games as some of us are. In this article, we’ll explore 5 recent releases, and give our impressions on them.
Have you missed us? Cause we’ve sure missed you! We’ve been thinking hard about the games we’ve been playing and have finally come up with our Top 5 Games of 2017! I know you’ve been waiting for this all year.
As I open the page to finalize our Best of 2017 post, WordPress gave me a nice congrats to remind me it was our two year anniversary of starting the blog! Thank you to everyone who has been with us and we can’t wait to keep on writing!
