Giving the gift of games this holiday season? Sick! … Don’t get sick. It just is sick. Clearly I am down with the lingo of the times…
Anyway! It’s always fun to try and get more people into board games with a starter game, or get the gamer in your life some nice accessories for their current favorites. Whether it’s for a Secret Santa, a stocking stuffer, a gift for bae, or something else entirely, here are some awesome gift ideas for gamers all under $25! Even fancier, I've linked to BGG pages in the titles, and sites for purchase in the descriptions. You are so welcome. Let's GOOOO!
What is the sound of one geep...speaking? Well, I guess I don't really know. Oh? You don't know what a geep is, you say? A goat-sheep hybrid of course! And you've been tasked with herding them up and keeping them safe from wolves! With a little bit of luck and strategy you can play your cards just right and have the greatest of all the herds! Let's check this out.
So, you've built a castle before I hear. And you think you know everything about them now? Unlikely.
Secrets of all sorts rest within the confines of Mad King Ludwig's castle, and they all rest at your fingertips. Rooms you've never seen before, hidden swans of all colors, and even more await you here. Are you ready to take these Secrets on? ... Unlikely.
I hereby decree that you only play wonderful games from this point forward! *bangs gavel on table* Or...I suppose if I'm a Queen... *bangs staff on floor?* I digress. Were I truly a Queen maybe I could make that decree, but since I am not (SIGH) I'm just highly suggest that you do that. Lucky for you, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig (from here on out referred to as either Between Two Castles or simply B2C) falls in that category. A very interesting cross between 2 different games, Between Two Castles is a multi-mechanic game you'll be eager to get to the table again and again. Let's take a look!
Are your weekdays filled with pulling out your hair at work while working your way through a 100-point checklist? Uhh...yeah me neither. But in case they are, don't you think you deserve a nice relaxing weekend? Maybe go out on the water, watch the sunset, and paint a few beautiful landscapes? Well, in case you hate leaving the house as much as I do, but that still sounds kind of great, then might I suggest Sunset Over Water instead - All that greatness in one convenient game! Let's check it out!
