I’m not a big board game lover, but friends who are keep telling me there’s two in particular I must try. There’s The Resistance: Avalon, a game about figuring out other players’ identities, and Terra Mystica, a strategy game. As it happens, the latter has dropped on PC this week. So now I have no excuse.
In Terra Mystica [official site] you control one of 14 factions, each with their own unique ability, and the idea is to transform the landscape of the board so that you can build the type of structure that’s specific to your faction. Rab actually wrote about the cardboard version on this site back in 2014, calling it “superb”.
