What's the (physically) heaviest game in your collection?
Seeing some of your collections this week made me think of these questions:
- What's the physically heaviest game in your collection? Does it actually deliver on the amount of gameplay content/quality offered? or is it more of a bloat?
- What's the most dense/compact game in your collection, where it may not offer the kind of scale and grandeur of the first type, but still offers great gameplay depth/complexity/replay value while coming in a smaller box?
- Lastly, which do you like more (#1 or #2) and why?
I started weighing my games with my hand just to answer question #2 haha. Here are my answers:
- Physically heaviest game is #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion at 6.39 lbs (according to Amazon). The weight was something that I immediately noticed when I picked up the game at Target. Based on my first impressions after playing through the first scenario, I'd say the weight is more than fitting for the amount of content it offers. The most "bloated" box I own is #Tapestry, just because of the miniatures. I still enjoy the game though.
- This one was hard to tell easily, but I think it's #Pax Pamir (Second Edition). It's such a beautiful, compact box where you can feel the nice weight in your hands. The game has so many neat mechanics at play and I've been wanting to get another solo session in soon. And that doesn't happen all that often.
- With our two year old around, accessibility is a huge plus for me and my wife. So #2 is my go-to option.
