Which is your favorite, Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, or Forbidden Sky? I always enjoy the classic, but I really like the stacking in Desert… and I still need to play Sky! #forbiddenisland #forbiddenislandgame #forbiddendesert #forbiddensky #mattleacock #gamenight #familyboardgame #familygamenight #tabletopgames #boardgames #boardgamenight #tabletopgaming #boardgamer #gamewright @gamewright

For the 3rd night in our month of top 10s, we are looking at “Next Step” games. These are the games, that we wouldn’t introduce a non-gamer to until they have had some plays of the ones on the “welcoming” games list. And sure many of these CAN be played by new players, in our experience they often find these games a bit “intimidating” In this list we ordered by how complex the game feels to us. 1. Tiny Towns - Ever played Bingo? Than you can learn Tiny Towns. 2. Barenpark - Less abstract than Patchwork, which may make it a better choice as an intro to polyomino games. 3. Forbidden Desert - slightly more complex than Forbidden Island, but a deeper more strategic game. 4. Sagrada - a pretty dice drafting game about building stained glass windows with colored dice that do make it seem like building a window. 5. Quacks of Quedlinburg - theme may be a bit weird to some, but a great intro to bag building and press your luck. 6. PARKS - a clear step up from TRAILS from the last list. Beautiful artwork with more depth. 7. Takenoko - the adorable panda and the 3D aspect of the game make for an easy to understand game. 8. Century Golem Endless World - one of the harder mechanisms to teach in our experience is worker placement. Often because worker placement games are complex. This one is very simple and straightforward. 9. Space Base - not really a good intro to anything, but just a great simple game. Our favorite on this list. 10. Calico - Almost to the next level, whatever that is. Calico is mechanically simple, but makes your brain work hard. A good gateway into more complex strategy games. And that’s it for another top 10. Check out tomorrow, for a new one. #boardgames #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamer #boardgame #top10 #top10boardgames #forbiddendesert #calico #quacksofquedlinburg #takenoko #spacebase #centurygolem #bärenpark #sagradagame #parksgame #tinytowns #aeg #gamewright #matagot #bgg #boardgamegeek #boardgameaddict #tabletopgames #brettspiele #brettspiel #juegosdemesa #jeuxdesociete #iloveboardgames #montypython #ministryofsillywalks

This is pretty much how I felt the other day when my pipes decided to burst at 4am 💦 it was a very stressful day, but it’s all sorted now 🤞🏻 Haven’t played #forbiddenisland by @gamewright for a while now. But after having to deal with a flood of water the other morning maybe I’ll get this one out again soon! It plays similar to pandemic, working together to get cards to find treasures instead of cures. Although as the island floods the board gets smaller and smaller making it very challenging. This was one of the first games I added to my collection, when I started to really get into boardgames. I love #forbiddendesert too, but still haven’t played #forbiddenskies yet... which one does everyone prefer? #boardgames #boardgamegeek #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamesuk #tabletop #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #meeples #flood

Forbidden Desert! This is one of my favorite puzzle-cooperative games. We lost our 5-player session but still had fun. What’s your favorite puzzle-coop game? #forbiddendesert

Great games from a great publisher. Here’s a snap of my collection of games from Gamewright for the GW pin giveaway. There are plenty more on my wishlist. They have such a great selection of fun, family weight games that make for a great game night.     #GWPinGiveaway #Boardgames #BoardgameCollection #Gamewright #ForbiddenIsland #ForbiddenDesert #ForbiddenSky #SushiGo #SushiGoParty #QWIXX

Forgidden Desert is a cooperative game where you and your fellow players find yourself crash landed in the desert. Your mission is to work together to find parts to a flying machine while a building storm buries you and the landscape in sand. Lately I've been adding a lot of cooperative games to my collection as the family has been enjoying them. I've only done a quick run through so far but I'm excited to introduce this one to them. I love the components. Especially the flying machine. And I feel there will be a lot to discuss without slowing the play down too much. #forbiddendesert #gamewright #cooperativegames #boardgamecommunity #boardgamelife #boardgamer #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamesrule #bgg #bggcommunity #gamenight #boardgamenight #boardgamephotography #tabletopgames #boardgameaddict #boardgame #boardgames #boardgamegeek #boardgame

I have a friend who works at Barnes and Noble and tipped me off that they put out a bunch of games on 50% off clearance. It took a lot of self control to not get more. All 3 came to $65 total. #sagrada #forbiddendesert #windward #boardgames #cardgames #dicegames #tabletopgames #iloveboardgames #boardgamesofinstagram #gamenight #boardgamegeek #bgg #bggcommunity #thedicetower #dice #minis #meeples

Games that inspire me to create - Part 3. “Forbidden Desert” @matt.leacock Forbidden Desert was the first game to really draw me into co-op games. I remember wanting to play again and again until I beat the first level and then moving on to the next challenging level. Co-op and Solo games have really exploded lately, especially during the pandemic. I see more and more co-op games on crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Gamefound. From a creative standpoint I view Forbidden Desert like one big puzzle. Just like a rubix cube I know what to expect going into it but it’s mixed up every time. I know the core moves I need to make to start unlocking its mechanisms but if I’m too relaxed about my actions then I can quickly fall into chaos. When I design games I want players to have a sense of importance and urgency to what they do on their turn as every action can really matter. I also love designing games that set up differently every game. You might have visited the magically forest before but this time your showing up at a different point in your journey with different circumstances. My only complaint with a game like Forbidden Desert is that once you start to master the puzzle you start to lose the replay ability. I hope to learn from games like this in ways I can take the puzzle aspects and apply them to something more competitive outside of a co-op setting. 🏜 🎲 . . . . #boardgame #boardgames #boardgamegeek #tabletopgames #bgg #tabletop #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamer #boardgamelover #boardgamesrock #boardgamelounge #boardgamefun #boardgamereviews #boardgamedesign #boardgamereview #kickstarterboardgames #familyboardgames #forbiddendesert #coopboardgames #gamewrightgames #gamewright #mattleacock

Here's that post from yesterday's shift... sidenote... we've introduced a return point in the cafe by the gaming wall... I noticed people getting stressed not knowing where to put the games back... makes sense they should enjoy every aspect of their visit and this is perfect! See, we care! Unnecessary stress removed.... now how to make picking a game easier? #chanceandcounters #wizardlychanceandcounters #chanceandcountersbirmingham #tabletop #boardgames #boardgamecafe  #boardgamecommunity #recnsplain #thieves #forbiddenisland #librium #santorini #7wondersarchitects #plagueinc #calico #colourbrain #forbiddendesert #huesandcues #deckchairsonthetitanic #kluster #tacocatgoatcheesepizza #bangthedicegame #wordonthestreet #thecaptainisdead
