I played a bunch of new games this year and I’ve included my favorites below (I hope I didn’t forget any!). The games weren’t necessarily released in 2013; I just happened to play them for the first time this year. Click the links for my full reviews of each game.
Board & Card:
- 7 Wonders – strategy card game based on civilization-building
- Lego Lord of the Rings – action-adventure game (I didn’t write up a review of this game, whoops!)
- Game Dev Story – game company simulation game (review is forthcoming)
- Kingdom Rush & Kingdom Rush: Frontiers – tower defense games
- Knights of Pen & Paper – turn-based, pixel art RPG
