Euro Game Mondays: Games Played

Designer board games are a very popular type of modern games that are carefully designed and crafted for complex gameplay. They include "Eurogames" or "German-style board games" as well as some from the US, Japan, and Korea.
Eurogames are board, card, or tile games, mostly designed in Europe, that share a set of similar characteristics:

  • focus on strategy, very little randomness or luck
  • designer honored on cover
  • quality artwork & components
  • emphasis on competition, not combat
  • no elimination of players
  • theme may be unconnected to gameplay
