Talking Board Games’ Top 10 Games of 2019

Another year of gaming has come and gone.This year, like the last, saw another huge number of releases, everything from party games to heavy euros. While I didn’t get to play all the games, not even close, I played a good number of them. Enough so, that I feel like I could throw together a top 10 list of my favorite games released in the year 2019. Below is an audio clip in which I discuss in detail all my picks in order. I also mention a few games I still need to try that I’m pretty confident have a shot at cracking my top 10. In case you are in a hurry or just don’t really care to hear me ramble, below the video are all 10 games. They are in no particular order, but all are worth giving a chance when the opportunity presents itself.

What were your favorite games of the year? Do you agree with me? What’d I miss? I’d love to heat all your thoughts.

  1. It was a great year of games. I really enjoyed Paladins of the West Kingdom. I also had a blast with Aeon’s End Legacy, Star Wars: Outer Rim, and Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth.

    1. While I did not get to play Aeon’s End Legacy, I am a big fan of the original game. If you couldn’t notice, my gaming tastes don’t necessarily line up with Fantasy Flights line of titles, but I have heard really good things about both Outer Rim and Journeys to Middle Earth. Did you get a chance to try Marvel Champions?
