Yea, I got my Xmas list ready baby!
The other game I’m going to get is Yggdrasil. I played this once before while visiting a gaming group during a business trip. Here is a video review from Tom Vasel:
As the video points out it is similar to Pandemic in that it is a co-op game. Pandemic is a great game by the way if you don’t have it.
What’s nice about co-op games is that all the players are playing against the ‘game’. It allows for more interaction between the people at the table as you work together to win. Having games like this is great. The group can help new players along and players and come and go as needed from the table without worring about slowing up the game.
Based on my one play, it I didn’t think it was as good as Pandemic (not as deep for sure), but a solid game with some top rate art on the board.
