If I were to look at the game "objectively," I'd give it somewhere between 8 to 9/10. It's a fun, solid game that I'd be down to play when someone wants to. And the only reason why I don't rate it any higher is that I prefer games with more feeling of progression because they're more memorable and play out so differently with each game (e.g. #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, or games I haven't played like #The Quest for El Dorado)

So, while I'm over myself in terms of the game that I had wished for, I know that Fort isn't the typical game I would have gone out of my way to buy if I'm looking for a game to play with my wife (who also shares similar preferences.) If playing with more than 2p was a regular thing for me, than yes, I'd definitely get Fort. It's a wonderfully interactive deck-builder and I love games that really constrain or expand your moves based on the possibilities of what other players might do.

Hope that answers your question!

We got in a great game of #Everdell at our house this weekend.  

I picked up #Concordia. It has been on my list for awhile and it finally went under $40.

Thanks for the list.

After a light week the previous week, got a ton of gaming in this time around.

I actually don't need to accommodate that many different types of groups, so I think I have it easier. I mainly need to cover solo, 2p games with my wife, and family game nights. And it sure helps a lot that my favorite games to play with my wife have great solo modes and that my mom is interested in trying them out too!

#Clans of Caledonia - Fantastic 2p game with my wife. It'll be relatively easy for my mom to pick up on too. And while it's not my absolute favorite for solo, I do like it a lot.

#Concordia - Another great 2p game with my wife. To be honest though, I think I should go with #Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated instead. We just like the thrill factor when pulling the Clank! cubes out of the bag. I just don't know how much we'll like the game once we're done with the legacy portion.

#Pax Pamir (Second Edition) - My favorite to solo so far.

#Camel Up (second edition) - Silly random fun for the family and I just love it. Easy to add in more people if we had guests over.

#Just One - It was either this or #Welcome to... It's another fantastic game for the family or with guests, and this one gets a plus for being the only co-op in this list.

I would be tempted to grab something like #Quirky Circuits, or maybe get half way to #Mechs vs. Minions

The Death Star from#Star Wars: Rebellion. The wooden meeples in#Root. The resource tokens in#Everdell. The miniatures in#Star Wars Imperial Assault. Lots of amazing components out there.

Personally I like #Paladins of the West Kingdom overall for both the solo mode (easy to run and challenging) as well as the 2-4 player games.  I've only played #Paladins of the West Kingdom with 3 players and mostly play with 2 and can't speak to the 4 player experience.  Most action take place on your own board and so the player interaction is minimal with the king's favors (beginning in round 3) being the most significant battele to some degree.  That being said the commion actions and garrison actions as well as attack and convert actions (4/6) will cause player to focus on what others are doing to one degree or another.

#Everdell has the largest footprint of all these games and if there is a reason it doesn't get played as much as the others to some degree it is because of this.  The solo mode is easy to run but I don't find #Everdell solo mode as compelling as #Paladins of the West Kingdom or #Architects of the West Kingdom.  To some degree it's the least interactive as each player is building their own tableau and sans the "meadow" that acts as a sort of group extention of your hand of cards and the buildings that other players build that you can visit, it's mostly managing your own tableau.  That being said, #Everdell is a great game, is in my top 10, and loads of fun and I have played this one with 4 players and found that to be the most fun despite the minimal player interaction. 

#Architects of the West Kingdom has the most player interaction in my opinion.  My family likes #Architects of the West Kingdom more than the others but #Paladins of the West Kingdom is my personal favorite of these three and is in my top 5 games.  I have the #Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans expansion and blinged pieces from Top Shelf Gamer for Architects as well but I thought the base game was fine as well and the wood pieces included seem pretty nice to me.  

I would say which of these game you will like the most will depend on h your personal preferences and what games you currently play and with how many players.  I you end up playing a lot of games solo and like a good challenge I'd go with #Paladins of the West Kingdom.  If you have friends and family to play with and they like pretty games and a more aestetic experience then I'd go with #Everdell or #Architects of the West Kingdom.  If player interaction is your highest priority then I'd go with #Architects of the West Kingdom.  If you favor worker placement then #Architects of the West Kingdom or #Paladins of the West Kingdom are you top choices.  If you like tableau building than #Everdell will be best.  

My two cents :)

If I had to pick I would go#Everdell.

For me, #Everdell takes it easily. The art is great, and the beautiful board combined with the giant tree, not to mention the eye-catching resources, make this game really pop.

I'm considering #Century: Golem Edition for my family.  How do you think it'd play as a family game?

#The Godfather: Corleone's Empire is one of my favorite 5 player games. 

#Risk: Legacy is also best at 5 (or 6 if you want to house rule it). My gaming group is in the middle of our 2nd campaign of it and decieded we'd only play at 5+ this time around. 

#Downforce is great at 5 or 6. 

#Libertalia Board Game is also good at 5+.  The actions are quick and easy and usually lots of groans and laughs when the card order is determined.  Not much slower than playing with 3 - 4.

Agree with other that #Citadels is best w/ at least 5.

Just a short list of the games I own that play 5+ that aren't necessarily party games. 

In the party game area

#Sushi Go Party! is also really enjoyable with 5+

#Just One is awesome with at least 5

 

I can see them possibly replacing #Everdell and maybe #Terraforming Mars or #Wingspan.  Everdell is the most likely as I think it might be the least good (?) game from a game design standpoint.  That's a bit of a stretch to say to some degree but one of the areas that can push a game up a little higher for me.  I usually have to play a game 5-6 times before I really get a great feel for the holes in the game mechanics.  

I did my ranking and it was excruciating, haha. Here's mine:

  1. #Oceans
  2. #Evolution: Climate
  3. #Dune
  4. #Everdell
  5. #Western Legends
  6. #Santorini
  7. #Concordia
  8. #The Isle of Cats
  9. #7 Wonders Duel
  10. #Viticulture: Essential Edition

Honestly, any of the games in the top 6 could be my #1 on any given day, depending on my mood, haha. Possibly top 7. Perhaps with more plays of all of them, I'll get better at differentiating, but for now, I love them all equally and for different reasons.
