Just One (Game of the Year 2019)

Just One game

Game Details:

  • 3 to 7 players
  • Minimum age 8 years
  • Guessing Game
  • duration: 20 minutes
  • Entry: Easy
  • Price: approx. 25 Euro
  • Conclusion: 8 out of 10 points

Extremely easy and without much preparation suitable for the next party: “Just One” is understood within seconds and can inspire a loyal round of up to 7 players up to 20 minutes. Ok, like more – because in a round it is rare.

It’s about guessing a term that should be described in advance by the other players with just one word. These words are written down on paper and – now comes the trick. All the double words are cut out! Probably the one who is practiced in synonyms!

Example complacent? If the players write down “alcohol”, “flirting”, “beer shower” and “chips”, guessing the term “party” you’re looking for is not difficult – but if everyone chooses to “alcohol”, the search for the right word is a lot trickier.

Ornithology is about the most boring subject that we can imagine for a board game – and yet it has the player’s elusive “wing it” without much difficulty to the title “game of the Year 2019” managed.

This is partly due to the fantastic game mechanics, as well as the extremely elaborate, editorial processing of a topic, with which certainly not every one of you immediately “warm”. But do not worry, you do not have to know by heart what an American snakebird is – and what sets it apart from the chicken.

Rather, “wing it” is about clever tactics: lure rare bird species with your food, let them mate and lay eggs. Brilliant: The colorful gypsum eggs and the dice tower in the form of a bird house revalue the title. Great part!

The bulging strategy game has been THE scene darling for years and creamed on Kickstarter proud $ 1.8 million. the extremely elaborately designed title is now distributed – and in our opinion in really every well-stocked game collection!

Important: Do not be intimidated by the extravagant material and the huge game board! “Scythe” may not be the title for a relaxed evening with the parents, but after a bit of training it’s not nearly as complicated and complex as it seems. Imagine a more complex – then you get close to the core.

Without a solid group of players and regular games evenings you can save the purchase of “Gloomhaven” quietly: The thick package weighs 100 pounds felt, actually “only” 9 pounds. Just the first “build up” and familiarization with the rules should keep you busy for a whole week.

Those who are not afraid of the effort, or (even better!) May join an already well-rehearsed troupe, will find in Gloomhaven the currently holy grail of the role-playing and tactics guild: Over 100 scenarios, an epic story, and more monsters, when you can count, players quickly run the tears of joy in their eyes.

Even better, behind Gloomhaven is a so-called “Legacy” game. That means: Your decisions can lead to permanent changes in the gameplay. So you put your own personal stamp on the game after each round – and discover new secrets again and again. All this by the way completely without a cube – instead you work with card decks!
