For Christian Boardgamers or anyone who likes a good co-op
I was clued into #Commissioned several years ago by one of those Dice Tower top ten videos. This is a deck building co-op game where you play as Apostles spreading the early church. Each player gets an Apostle with a special power and their own player deck and you build that deck to get better at making or equipping disciples and fighting against the board which will try to halt your missionary outreaches. Admittedly gameplay-wise this is no #Spirit Island in terms of crazy-amazing co-ops, but its a soild game and I am super impressed by how strong this game is thematically. Every one of the event cards has a verse on it which was the inspration for their effect. For example, when the persecution card comes up, you lose some of the disciples you made in a certain church, but then other disciples move to adjacent cities and start new churches there. I love it's attention to detail in that sort of thing.
Anyway, they are running a new kickstarter for an expansion for the base game but you can also purchase the base game. It has only 4 days left, but I thought it was worth a plug since I love it and I don't think its very well known.
