"Luxury" Games

Supporter

I know that board games generally can be described as a luxury. But I'm referring to what games would you describe as the "lamborghinis" of the board game world? Top notch components, gameplay, art etc

Clearly many games from Chip Theory and Awaken Realms fall into this category. I would like to present several more options.

#Pax Pamir (Second Edition)

#Crokinole, if you have a decent board it really is a luxury experience.

Some, not all of Stonemaires offerings. I am thinking most noteably of #Wingspan

Many #Go sets are pretty luxurious. Also, #Shobu.

Had no idea Go was luxurious. Weird

Supporter2 months ago

Yes that's true about Chip Theory and Awaken Realms. All the games that are "over produced". Stonemaier games could fall here too. 

I'll have to look up Go but Crokinole is another good one to mention. Simple but classy.

Stonemaier are a good example just based on the components alone. Unless you're looking at#Pendulum then that's a big NOPE lol

Supporter2 months ago

Pendulum had poor componenets? 

Supporter2 months ago

Based on what Phil said then yes.

Yeah didn't you see Phil’s review awhile back? They sound pretty terrible 

Supporter2 months ago

No I actually didnt. Im going to go find it

Yeah it sounded like among other things the sandtimers didn't always work. Kinda crazy for a game from Stonemaier to be bad like that

A nice #Crokinole board for sure.  Once I get around to upgrading #Scythe with realistic components, metal coins, and get the mini's painted expect it to be rather luxurious.  It's really the only game that I've really wanted to upgrade the components to, and the components weren't bad to begin with. It's just how I feel about the game.

Any "Deluxe" version of a game gets slotted into the Luxury category for me.

I agree with everyone saying Chip Theory games and Stonemaier games. I think of luxury in terms of quality but also that prices will probably never go down lol. Kind of a separate note, but I don't like when games try to pass as luxury by having a lot of miniatures or components in general.

Retail. Need to check; I think it is missing the rats for the solo play :)

I just played this weekend and it was the Kickstarter deluxe edition but I'd say that #Moonrakers fits this description.

the sheer size, set of mini's and epicness of #Star Wars: Rebellion just brings a "wow" to the table.

All the wooden components in that heavy #Agricola is pretty awesome too.

There is something sweet about the tiles in #Azul as well!

 

Supporter2 months ago

Yes! I have Rebellion on my shelf and waiting to get that played!

good choices!

I've considered this mostly based on what I've seen on here. Should throw it on my wishlist in case Santa is nice this year lol

Supporter2 months ago

This has been on my wishlist too! You should add it to yours

Premium User2 months ago

I should! I was considering throwing on that and#Mage Knight for my Santa purposes. The exchange closes tonight so I still have time

Supporter2 months ago

Premium User2 months ago

Well...it could hurt my brain possibly ahaha

When you say luxury, do you mean games with just top not components and gameplay, or games with absurd prices aswell? If we're talking price aswell, then I'd say #Nemesis. That's all I can think of off the top of my head

Supporter2 months ago

Btw Nemesis looks amazing!

2 months ago

sure does, though I've lost all hope in playing it

Supporter2 months ago

Why?

2 months ago

Because of its unholy price

Supporter2 months ago

It wasn't my favorite.
