This week's board game gem is Fresh Fish, a unique game that's been around in some form or another for 20 years. Some people will like the game, and some people will REALLY dislike it. But there's no other game quite like it.

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.
