A board game is never truly great unless it combines great gameplay with an incredible theme. What are your top/favorite themes?
Here are mine:
5. Historical - Medieval
Thinking of games like#A Feast For Odin#Paladins of the West Kingdom and similar with this theme. Also#Dominion: Second Edition and others. This theme has lots of room for cool and fun games. Love it, just not as much as others.
3. Space/ Science-Fiction
Definitiely the most common theme that I own.#Terraforming Mars,#Gaia Project,#Empires of the Void II,#Underwater Cities, and many more. A truly great theme because of the wide open possibilities it offers. Space is so vast and so interesting and there are so many interesting things out there that this theme easily captures the imagination. Add in some sci-fi and you get a truly great theme.
2. Historical - Roman
I really don't own any games with this theme and this is more of a wishlist theme than anything. Roman history is incredibly fascinating and I am constantly surprised that more games don't take advantage of this great theme.
1. Star Wars
Was there ever any question that this would be my favorite theme? Such an incredible IP and so many cool ships, characters, and places to explore. All my favorite games have this theme#Star Wars: Rebellion of course, but#Star Wars Imperial Assault and#Star Wars: Outer Rim too.
Whats your number one?
