I have played 28 games starting with T (but NOT "The"), so we'll take a look at 5 of them in some detail.
In this game players play one card a turn attempting to fit their card in a numerically increasing row but don't be the 6th card in a row or you...take 5 cards that were already there.
It's a high luck game with some strategy but mostly it's fun to play with non-gamers to get a few laughs when someone gets screwed or extremely lucky.
In this game you are growing and improving the temple complex by taking different "shades" of dice from around an obelisk. The interesting part is that as the obelisk turrns different dice become available. On the first game it seems like a big mish mash of mechanisms but subsequent plays start to pull things together.
It's my second favourite T game which I reviewed further here:
My favourite of the T games. In Teotihuacan players use their worker dice to build and decorate the pyramid of the sun. The dice "age" by increasing their pips which gives them more power for most actions. Once they hit 6 pips they "die" and come back as a level 1 dice.
This is just a tremendously fun game with a great blend of strategy and tactics. It's in a perfect sweet spot for me.
You can see a more detailed review here:
In Terraforming Mars the players are...terraforming Mars. This game is a tableau builder that ends when Mars is completely terraformed.
The game requires adaptability as the cards you get won't always be the ones you planned for. Points can come from a variety of sources.
It's not a flawless game as even with the huge variety of cards if a player gets a good combo of cards it can be quite powerful, as well, sometimes it is beneficial for players to NOT terraform mars and farm points in other ways which can drag the game.
All of that said however, I really enjoy this game and would play it anytime. (Especially with the #Terraforming Mars: Prelude expansion.)
Tyrants of the Underdark is a deck building warriors on a map style game. In it players are playing drow nobles vying for control of the underdark. Move armies, fight battles, assassinate, and do what you need to do to in order to win.
I think this game made a bit of a splash when it came out but I haven't heard a lot about it since. There is a new version that is a lot more inexpensive that uses card board counters instead of miniatures which I think is brilliant as miniatures are not needed for this style of game.
Definitely worth checking out!
So, what are your favourite games starting with T? (Not "The")
