My Board Games from Pax Unplugged 2019

I had a lot of fun this year at Pax Unplugged. It is of course the biggest board game convention in the Northeast (I think?). I got to try a lot of new games and I came back with a ton of games.

Board Games from Pax Unplugged

First off, my pick for the board game of the convention is the Valley of the Vikings. It won the Kinderspiel des Jahres Children’s Game of the Year and it is so much fun. I love light games that I can teach in less than 5 minutes. It combines a dexterity game with a simple take that strategy game. The dexterity element comes from knocking down the right color pieces with a ball and the strategy comes from positioning yourself to maximize the amount of gold you get while trying to knock one or more players off the track. It is actually a lot easier to learn if you watch a video.

I got a bunch of Pack O Game for little stocking stuffers for my friends and got a couple of games in trades or random giveaways. I probably even have a few game buried in a bag I haven’t gotten to yet.

Random Cards from Pax Unplugged

Here are a bunch of card games, promo cards and giveaways that I also got. I am honestly finding random cards everywhere in my bag (hiding in pockets, books, accidentally bent underneath a game…).

Mystery Box Pax Unplugged

Finally you know I can’t resist mystery boxes and I got a mystery box of board games for $50. I got BattleCon Fates of the Indines, Current Number of the Beast, Captain Carcass (aka Dead Man’s Draw) + two playmats and Gameception. I am pretty happy with my box and probably bringing Current Number of the Beast and Captain Carcass to my next board game meetup since they are very easy to learn games. I also love playmats (I just can’t get enough). The only game that I am probably giving away is Gameception. It is just not my thing.

I actually got a little group from across the country that meets once a year at Pax Unplugged and we play a bunch of games throughout the weekend. It is something I look forward to every year!
