In the age of video games, we wouldn’t think board games to be still here in 2019. On the contrary, they are very much a part of our lives and an integral aspect to pop culture even today. Board games are a great opportunity to have some fun while being with our friends and families. This need to play with real people is seen through the recent rise of multiplayer gaming even in video games, which was once primarily the dominion of the single player.
Over the years, board games have gone from strength to strength. They have undergone several changes and innovation has been a mainstay. For someone whose idea of board games are Ludo, Chess, and Snakes and Ladders, the board games of recent years will blow their minds! From picturesque animal haunts to marshalling troops in war, modern board games have it all. The list below will shed some light on some fascinating examples of how far board games have truly come along over all this time. Without further ado, here are the best upcoming board game releases in 2019 and 2020:
15. Comanauts (January 2019)
Renowned game designer Jerry Hawthorne brings back his incredible Adventure Book system in the upcoming ‘Comanauts.’ Published by Plaid Hat Games, this game seeks to be a more mature rendition of the system that Hawthorne deployed in his previous endeavour, ‘Stuffed Fables.’ The board itself is a book, changing the stage ever so often to bring new challenges for the players to overcome. Players are on a mission to bring back Dr. Martin Strobal from, well, a coma. Only his knowledge of the Mobius Ring, an unlimited source of energy that has gone awry, will set things right. Navigating through his mind and defeating the inner Demon makes up what is sure to be a memorable board game.
