For our 2nd day of 31 days of top 10s for October, we are doing gateway or “welcoming” games. These are the games you introduce to people who have never played hobby board games before. They’re simple with easy to understand mechanics, and usually short to play. These are ordered by how easy it is to introduce to new gamers: 1. Just One - We’ve introduced Just One to a lot of non-gamers and it always goes over well. Can be taught in less than a minute. 2. Dixit - another one that has gone over well with lots of people great artwork too. 3. Forbidden Island - a thematic game with easy to understand rules. Excellent intro to cooperative games. 4. Point Salad - another simple game to teach set collection. Great eye catching artwork and graphic design. 5. Canvas - everyone we’ve ever shown the idea of layering cards to make art has found this game fascinating. 6. TRAILS - great eye catching art. Easy to teach. 7. Summer Camp - an easy intro into deck building with a theme most can identify with. 8. Century Golem - a very basic Euro with a trading mechanism. Again beautiful art. 9. Kingdomino - a great simple game where you can see you kingdom being built which give immense satisfaction. 10. Azul - almost to the “next step” of games, a little harder to grasp, but people really love the aesthetics. And that’s it for today. Come back tomorrow for a new top 10. #boardgames #boardgamesofinstagram #bgg #boardgamegeek #boardgameaddict #boardgame #boardgamer #justonegame #dixit #forbiddenisland #pointsalad #canvasgame #trailsgame #summercamp #azul #kingdomino #reposgames #gamewright #aeg #keymastergames #tabletopgames #juegosdemesa #brettspiele #brettspiel #jeuxdesociete #iloveboardgames #gatewaygames #welcominggames #top10 #boardgametop10

Hello friends, today I'm going to kick off my 1K giveaway announcements! Forbidden Island is the first item that will be going to a new home. While I had intended to put it up for grabs, I recently stumbled across a great initiative being put on by @queertabletops . They're helping local queer and trans youth to create a supportive and safe space by hosting bi-weekly boardgame nights. They have requested donations to help get this rolling and I will be sending this game to Ohio ASAP. @queertabletops just hit 1K as well, and if you aren't already familiar with them I encourage you to check them out. There are many people in this community who are doing amazing things both here on IG, and in their communities around the world. A few other initiatives that come to mind are @boardgameswithb volunteering to teach young school children how to play games, @jazzylovesgames creating an accessible gaming community within their local library, and @wereplayinggames who put on a massive live Pride parade to raise funds for LGBTQ+ organizations. How incredible! Comment below to show some support for these amazing initiatives, and if you have another initiative to highlight please do share it here! I know there are so many people doing wonderful things and I would love to hear about them. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Finally, just a few brief words on Forbidden Island since I only played it once. I bought it and felt like it was the offspring of Pandemic, which is actually fantastic for a younger audience, but I didn't feel like I needed both in my collection when one could be getting so much love elsewhere. Coincidentally, @board.game.dad made a hilarious reel that same week sharing his thoughts on their parallels. I will share it to my stories later today if you haven't already seen it! #forbiddenisland #gamewright #pride #pridemonth #payitforward #community #boardgamecommunity #boardgamecollection #boardgame #tabletopgames #giveaway #1k #1000 #tyedye #rainbow #tights #fishnets #bgg #gamergirl #iloveboardgames #geek #gamer #boardgames #colourful #brettspiele #games #juegosdemesa #jeuxdesociété

🎉 SUSHI GO PARTY 🍙🍣🍤 What is a good 'cooling-down' game? There was lovely contrast in games played yesterday, after the economic Imperial 2030, we ended the day with a light and fun game of Sushi Go Party! We love the thematic touch that you prepare a menu for your game in this version of Sushi Go. Basically, you choose with which cards you'll be playing, offering a lot of different options in complexity and making sure games stay varied. #philwalkerharding #whitegoblingames #sushigo #sushigoparty #gamewright #cardsdrafting #boardgaming #tabletopgames #boardgamenight #boardgamelife #analoggaming #brettspiel #juegodemesa #brætspil #bgg #jeuxdesociete #boardgamesofinstagram #juegos #games #boardgamecommunity

Sushi go. A simple pick and pass card game that's really fun to play with superb artwork on the cards. Great for all ages. A really close game tonight with scores of 47, 42 and 41 with Tavon coming out on top due to having more desserts giving him the 6 points needed for victory. #gamewright #cards #pickandpass #cardmanagment #carddrafting #cardgamesofinstagram #boardgamegeek #boardgamesofinstagram #familygamenights

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

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

Abandon All Artichokes isn’t your garden variety deck-building game, well, actually it is, but in a different way. In this light and family friendly deck-building game, you’ll start with a deck full of artichokes and race to be the first player to draw a hand with no artichokes. With the help of 10 different vegetables from your garden, you’ll compost those prickly produce crops out of the game or even send them into your opponent’s deck to drive them further away from victory!

Today's game is another favourite at our game nights. It's quick, chill, & full of adorable art. . Sushi Go!, from Gamewright (@gamewright ) . 2-5 players, age 8+ €16.00 at Gamers World Dublin (@gamersworlddublinire ) Available on Board Game Arena (@boardgamearena ) . Sushi Go! is a cute drafting game where your aim is to gather sets of sushi that are worth points. Each player starts with a number of cards. On each turn, they pick 1 card & pass the rest to the next player. This repeats until all cards have been taken. Some sushi require you to have 2 or 3 of the same type to get points, some accumulate points the more you have, & some only give points if you're the one with the most of that type in the round. At the end of 3 rounds, the player with the fewest pudding cards loses points, & the one with the most gains points. Most points in total wins. . I love Sushi Go!. It's easy to teach to new players as all the information needed during play is on the cards, a game doesn't take very long & can easily be slottet in between longer games, & have I mentioned it's really super cute? The egg nigiri card has my favourite art, both because it looks like a little cat, & because it's one of my favourite types of sushi to eat. For gaining points, I usually favour the sashimi, where you get 10 points if you collect 3. My partner on the other hand really likes stacking dumplings, where the 1st one gives you 1 point but if you get to 5, that's 15 points in total. I like that even in such a simple game that relies a lot on what cards are available each round, people will develop favourite strategies. Of course it's also possible to block other players' strategies by fx taking the 3rd sashimi, but the rounds are so short you risk sabotaging your own points too. It's a very friendly, chill game. . Sushi Go! is ideal as a palate cleanser between more intense games, as well as for times when you want to play something satisfying that doesn't take very long.

Time for some SHOPPING! That’s the theme this week for #thematicthursday . This hashtag was created by @prestonsgamersguild . I am featuring shops and stores from HAPPY CITY, designed by Toshiki and Airu Satu, published by @gamewright . This light, fun filler game takes 2 to 5 and plays in 20-30 minutes. Income is used to buy cards that provide buildings that provide residents and increase their happiness. It’s a great summoner or finisher for game night! #thematicthursday #shopping #happycity #cardgame #fillergame #gamewright #game #games #gamer #gaming #geek #boardgame #boardgamer #boardgames #boardgaming #boardgamesarefun #boardgamegeek #boardgameaddict #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgamepic #boardgamephoto #tabletop #boardgamephotography #bggcommunity
