Further to my last post about being up in York, whilst there we spent a quality evening playing these bad boys: Forbidden Desert, Ticket to Ride and Sushi Go!
Each provided different mechanics but all were very enjoyable to play. All have been covered by TableTop on Youtube so I have provided links to each of those videos below if you wish to learn more about the games.
Forbidden Desert was is a fantastic co-op game and blimey is the game tough. We played on novice difficulty and got spanked a few times before moving on to Ticket to Ride.
Ticket to Ride is a great game! I admit to being biased as I won the game on the final turn (which has never happened to me, in any game I've played, before!). This aside, I found the mechanics and aesthetic of this game to be top drawer and very enjoyable.
Finally, we played a couple of rounds of Sushi Go! For such a simple game, it was awesome and was the perfect game to wind down on. very colourful cards, great mechanics and very easy to understand!
All in all, it was a great evening of gaming. My other half now has Forbidden Desert on her list of board games to add to our budding collection.
