In recent years it has become increasingly acceptable to play boardgames, so much so that there are now regular articles in the national press – in particular The Guardian who have had a dedicated boardgames area in their “Lifestyle” section for some time. They now also have a regular monthly guide designed to help people “find the best games” and “steer clear of disappointing duds”. This is written by Owen Duffy who writes for the Guardian on a range of subjects and until recently ran the tabletop gaming blog Cardboard Sandwich. The first article showcases four games that even some dedicated gamers might not be aware of: Ice Cool, Ticket to Ride: Rails & Sails, Mystic Vale and Sneaky Cards. Owen has a real love of playing boardgames and is genuinely knowledgable about them, so the “Boarders Hoard” is definitely worth keeping an eye out for.
