Spiel 2016: Power Grid: The Card Game, Fabled Fruit

| Your Opinion

Spiel 2016 was quite successful, and there were a lot of games that debuted. Two of the smaller games – by smaller I mean in physical size and space – were as follows.

The popular board game Power Grid is getting its own card version game. Power Grid: The Card Game will use the auctioning and resource competition aspect of the original version, but ditch the networking aspect. Thus, making it is all about making money. It’s a standalone game.

Another title to receive attention was Fabled Fruit. It’s a quick-playing, basic worker placement game – but you only have one worker. The actions available to you change over multiple plays. There are more than 504 combinations possible – gotta try’em all.

I’m co-founder and co-CEO of my family. I fell in love with modern board games through my husband-who introduced me to Wil Wheaton’s TableTop-and a few gateway games-Castle Panic, Ticket to Ride, and Smallworld. We’ve been playing ever since. I am passionate about board gaming, and try to introduce as many people as I can to it.I am a stay at home mom to my five kids ages 2 to 11. We’ve introduced to board games to them along the way, and they enjoy them as much as we do. When I’m not playing board games I love being outside- hiking, exploring, kayaking-pretty much most things-as well as spending time as a family unit.
