1 thought on “2014 Diehard GameFAN Awards

  1. Idiots – they know nothing of board games. The best boardgame of 2013 was the Mensa Prize Winner, Suburbia. The best boardgame of 2014 was by the same designer, Ted Alspach (of Bezier Games) – Castles of Mad King Ludwig. Anybody who wants to learn how to play either of these great games needs only show up on Friday nights at LASFS (where I hold a boardgame Meetup) as there are several gamers there who would be glad to teach these games to anybody who wants an enjoyable hour or so.
