Hey there, Gamers!
So, you may remember that last year I made a little Gift Guide to help you find just the right game or accessory for your favorite gamer! It had a few intro games, a few accessories, and everything was under $25! (It's cool, check it out if you haven't, cause it's still awesome - Shameless Plug!)
This year I wanted to go a slightly different direction and do a list with no games on it... WHAT?! Yeah, you heard right. As someone who has a lot (not kidding, a lot) of games, it's hard to tell people what game I want, because that's mostly a list of hard to find or expensive things, and it's hard getting games I didn't ask for because non-gamers don't always know my taste (but I do appreciate the thought!). So, if you have someone like me in your life, here are a few simple gift ideas that might help you get them something they can always use!
Howdy Gamers! As you probably know from my many mentions of it, I tend to play games mostly 2-player, just me and my husband. Because of that, I love when I can find a good 2-player only game because not everything that has a range starting at 2 is really great for that few players. So in case, like me, you find that you need more great games for 2, you might want to check these out!
I have again limited them to ones I own, as those are the ones I know the best and like the most. Additionally, I am aware that some of these can technically be played with more than 2, but they were designed with 2 and mind, and definitely play best at only 2 (at least in my opinion). So, without further ado, let's gooooo!

Howdy Gamers! It's time for another Top 10 List! This time I'm taking a look at some of my favorite deck building games. I know that there are a lot of games that fit this category, especially if you're just looking at the BoardGameGeek category, so, to make sure we're clear, I define a deck builder as a game where you buy/obtain cards within the game to add to your deck in hopes of bringing cards together to make good combos or get you the most points (whatever the goal of the game might be). If you construct a deck before playing (as in Master of Wills for instance) that isn't the type of game I have included in the list.
Again, I have narrowed the list down to games that I own to make it a little easier on myself, even though there are a lot of great deck builders out there that I don't own. If you haven't had a chance to try a deck builder yet, I highly recommend checking some out. They're super neat and there's a lot of varities out there (which you'll see in my list) so there's something for everyone!
When you've played enough games - and trust me, I've played my fair share - you start to get drawn to similar types of games, and start to really find which ones you love the most. I know that I've been drawn into certain themes a lot as well as games from certain publishers or designers. But the biggest thing that can really draw me to a game is its' mechanics. I love a lot of different mechanics, from worker placement to deck builders, but by far my favorite is a good ol' roll-and-write! I want to do a little combo post to talk about this type of game and list a few of my favorites!
Hey Gamers! So, I posted a poll on Twitter a while back asking what my next Top 10 should be, and I finally followed through! I decided to narrow it down by only games I own to help a little because this was a tough list to pull together - there are so many good ones! Without further ado, here are my Top 10 Worker Placement Games of all time! ..... So far.
