Good December, my fellow tabletop geeks. I believe the end of the year is the best time to wax nostalgic. As you may or may not know, I started to make board game content on my YouTube page in January of this year. That prompted me to get more stuff played than I have in prior years (I think). For certain, I got to dive into some newer releases over the last twelve months. But also, and possibly more fulfilling, I got to play some excellent games that may not get as much love as they deserve. In that regard, here is my top ten list of tabletop games I played for the first time in 2021. Some are new and some are old. I think it’s a pretty good list! What do you think?
Check out my video below to see/hear my discussion on each of the tabletop games on the list. You should definitely give all of these great games a look. Thanks for reading. Happy New Year. And please keep safely nerding on!
