This week's board game gem is Ra: The Dice Game, a great dice game that you might like (or dislike) even if you dislike (or like) its cousin, Ra.

A family favourite. I didn't have high expectations when I first sat down to play this game, but it's one my family keeps returning to.

My favourite two-player game is The Rose King. It has the perfect balance for me of casualness and look-ahead. It's more thinky than a lot of light two-player Kosmos games, like Lost Cities for example. But even though I want a thinky game, that doesn't mean I want to play chess. This strikes that perfect balance for me.
