Complexity

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island
Daily Discussion and Game Recommendations Thread (November 24, 2021)
So far I have looked at Legends of Andor, Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island, and The Adventures of Robin Hood for example, but I'm not crazy about their reliance on scenario expansions although I could still be convinced. **Number of Players:** Most importantly should work well with 3 players. **Game Length:** 30-90 minutes. **Complexity of Game:** Around 2.0-3.0 but could be higher as long as the session length doesn't go up.
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Or are they Cylons bent on destroying Humanity? If your gaming group enjoys highly-thematic political intrigue, and can handle some good-natured infighting and backstabbing, you'll enjoy Battlestar Galactica. If you like playing a game where there is a continuous challenge, and victory is always a very close call, Battlestar Galactica is for you. If you're a fan of the hit Sci Fi Channel show, and want to simulate the twists and turns on your game table, then Battlestar Galactica is the game you have been waiting for!

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island Review
I don’t know if Robinson Crusoe is as difficult as Ghost Stories, but losses definitely hit you harder since games are so much longer and you put so much effort into them. Final Thoughts. It might not be the best choice if you are new to cooperative board games, but Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is a wildly entertaining game for those that give themselves some time to become familiar with it

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Fun and Deceptive
I want to start out this review saying that this is the best board game I have ever played. I've never seen a game make you so paranoid and unwilling to work with people unless you have to and it stay so fun. Players who are new to the game will be slightly overwhelmed with the seeming complexity of...

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Awesome game
If you and your friends enjoy the BSG reimagined series, get this game. It's a good game that will take about 2-3 hours (more if you sit and talk for a bit like we do). Plus, as the game progresses, you lose precious resources while someone (or some people depending on the number of players) work ag...

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Fan-Created Mod Reinvents the Battlestar Galactica Board Game
Such was the the case with the Battlestar Galactica, a game cut off at the knees last year when Indie Boards & Cards published The Resistance. This new game on the block played in a fraction of the time with as much if not more suspense, relegating Battlestar Galactica to the back of the game closet. Yet while I primarily play games as a test of skill, there is something to be said for an enjoyable theme

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island
Best co-op game EVER!
This is the best co-op board game I have ever played. It is an extremely deep game with lots of options and replay ability. My children 11, 7 and 6 love this game but would not be able to play it without an adult to help guide them along. For those who like team games this is a must.

This is not a little child's gift item; it's for boardgame junkies who can play complex games based on the series. The recipient (26 years old) was delighted with it.

Robinson Crusoe Review - with Tom Vasel
And now it's time for another diced, our review with Tom vassal, I think Robinson Crusoe is one of the great stories of fiction, and so I was really excited to hear about the game. The game itself plays fairly similar to the story of Robinson Crusoe, with the exception that there are multiple people...

Battlestar Galactica’s beloved board game is back, but in Arkham Horror form
It was a potent mix of thematic event cards and cunning deception that has given the game an extraordinary reputation among hobbyists.
