Mind Games 2018 wrapped up Sunday in Denver, CO. After two full days of play-testing a lot of great games, five winners were selected to carry the prestigious Mensa Select® Seal.
In no particular order, the winners are:
A beautiful tile-building games, and one of my personal favorites, Azul by Plan B Games is a 2-4 player game suitable for all ages, where players compete to decorate walls by drafting a variety of colorful tiles.
Constellations: The Games of Stargazing and the Night Sky
Constellations is a card-based puzzle game where players compete to piece together the night sky while stargazing and learning about the night sky.
In Ex Libris, one of two winners from Renegade Game Studios, players compete to become the Grand Librarian of the most extraordinary collection of rare books before the inspector arrives!
Photosynthesis, by Blue Orange games, is the green strategy board game of planting and shaping your forest from seedling to full bloom to rebirth! The sun shines brightly on the canopy of the forest, and the trees use this wonderful energy to grow and develop their beautiful foliage.
Raiders of the North Sea
Who doesn't love a little raiding and plundering?! Another favorite from this year's competition, Raiders of the North Sea is the second 2018 Mensa Select winner from Renegade Game Studios! Assemble your raiding party and collect provisions before setting sail to collect your plunder and find glory even at the hands of the Valkyrie!
