To be clear, this top 9 isn’t restricted only to games released in 2022, but rather new plays that I was able to do this past year. Also, a sad truth became apparent when compiling this list, is that the majority of my new plays for the year came from BGGCon. It’s become apparent that my regular, throughout the year gaming is resulting in playing tried and true titles. Which I guess isn’t a bad thing, but I definitely am setting a New Year’s resolution to get new games (for me at least) to the table in 2023.
So with that, here is my top 9 boardgames for 2022.
While this list isn’t in any order, Lacrimosa was my clear favorite new play of 2022. With Starship Captains and Splendor Duel coming a close second/third.
As we come to the end of 2022, I hope everyone had a great gaming year (one in which we all got to game in person again with some regularity), and I look forward to what 2023 has in store for all of us.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
