With the arrival of a new abstract game to my collection called Onitama, it reminded me of the other abstract games I have in my collection.
It’s certainly a genre I enjoy playing. And you could make a reasonable argument that it’s under represented.
Like every other game in my collection the abstract ones don’t get enough love and table time. Plus it doesn’t help that they are usually two player. I have some great two player games and they are harder to get to the table than you think.
I took the text for the above image from the following BGG link here.
So currently my favourite abstract game in my collection has to be Santorini. It can be taught and learnt in under 5 minutes. Games are quick. With the god powers and the Golden Fleece expansion lots of replayability and variety. Plus it looks stunning. Our game group fell in love with it instantly. It even plays well with three players.
So what’s your favourite abstract game?
