It’s Christmasssssssssss! My lovely fiancee Laura treated me to the Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016, so for each day of advent, I will update this post with what each window contains.
The Oracle of Delphi – Seafarer Expansion
Here is the link to the full game. I don’t have the base game to this so I will be selling it.
West of Africa – Calendar
I admit this is the first time I have even heard of this game :S Here is the link to the full game. No surprise that I don’t have the base game so I will be selling it. Maybe ill get lucky with day 3!
Karuba – Volcano
2016 Spiel Des Jahres nominee Karuba. A game I want that I haven’t managed to get hold of yet.
Hansa Teutonica – Emperor’s Favour
A bit of a weird one to get seeing as the game was printed in 2009. I haven’t got Hansa Teutonica and probably won’t get a copy, so this will be going on the sell pile.
Broom Service – Christmastime
Surprise Kennerspiel des Jahres 2015 winner Broom Service. Yay!!! I have this game, I purchased it after it won the award, like many others I suspect.
King of Tokyo/ New York – Kookie
Guilds of London – Cheese and Papermakers
Guilds of London was a complete sell out at UKGE 2016 with a lot of buzz surrounding it. Unfortunately, it’s for the sell pile.
Zooloretto – Christmas Gift
Zooloretto is one of those great family games and who doesn’t love animals?!
Saboteur – Expansion Advent Calendar 2016
Probably the first hidden role game that I had ever played and remembered playing with a group of people I had met for the first time. Paul, I will never forgive you! Check out the link.
Crisis – The Game Designers
I have seen the box cover of this game, but nothing else. Sell pile.
Mysterium – Vision Card
I love mysterium it’s one of the few games I’m actually pretty good at, I guess I have a gift for making sense of other people’s crap. An extra vision card noice.
Imhotep – The Private Ships
2016 Spiel des Jahres nominee Imhotep. I want this game and can’t seem to get a copy so I’ll be hanging on to this one.
Arkwright – Noblesse Oblige
I don’t have the game, but the theme definitely appeals to me especially as Sir Richard Arkwright’s factory was in Nottingham, my home town.
Camel Up Cards – Catch up Trophies
I enjoy a game of camel up but for me, the card game made it fiddly and dull. I sold the game and I will be selling this.
Quadropolis – Christmas Tiles
I love this game and it’s a cracking first design by François Gandon. It reminds me of Targi and a city building game like Between Two Cities. These will be a nice little addition to my copy of Quadropolis.
Bohemian Villages – Special Action Tiles
No idea about this game, but it’s a dice game that plays in 30mins. Sell pile.
Panic Lab – Shower
Never heard of this game. Sell pile.
Istanbul – Pegasus Depot
Probably my favorite pick up and deliver game and winner of the 2014 Kennerspiel. If you haven’t played Istanbul I highly recommend it.
Tallinn – The Supporters
Tallinn is a game I have never heard of so this is going to the sell pile.
Cacao – New Huts
A cool little tile laying game that isn’t Carcassonne, not that I dislike Carcassonne it’s just Cacao is different. I have both the base game and Chocolatl, so yay one I can use.
Gold West – Trading Post
A game that looks good and intrigues me thematically. I might check Gold West out.
Portal of Heroes – Diamonds
Another game that has fallen to my ignorance.
Arcadia Quest – Healing Fountain
A game I have but have yet to play. Maybe this Christmas I may get a chance.
Robinson Crusoe – Runch
Just in time for its 2nd edition. Robinson Crusoe is a game I haven’t got, but want so I may just hang onto this promo.
So that is Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016, What are your thoughts and feelings on the contents? Anything you’d like to see in next years?
