Since at Esports Extras we have chosen to get closer to the table games (a request that many of you have made to us in recent years in the comments), my passion for this other branch of game desEsports Extrashas not stopped growing. So much so that now my calendar of releases to take into account no longer only takes into account the next video games.
Of all the board games that I have marked for this year, I have created a selection with which I most want to try and, as you will see below, there are options for all tastes. From Marvel zombies to zoo politics, these are board games you can’t miss in 2023.
Next June 30th it finally arrives in stores. Marvel Zombiesthe new version of zombicide Based on the well-known plot of superheroes transformed into the living dead.
In a cooperative adventure for 1 to 6 players, we will have to control the zombie versions of Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk as we fight against the agents of Shield and the superheroes that remain uninfected in order to feed ourselves and grow our power.
Age of Comics
Still without a closed date for its shipments, the latest great Kickstarter success puts us in the shoes of a comic book publisher so that, from 1 to 4 players, we fight to be the Marvel of the 40s by creating new comic book and superhero ideas while we make a hole in the stores and we get our fan base to grow more and more. In addition to being pretty to rage, Age of Comics It has all the earmarks of being one of those games that we are going to take years to burn.
Let’s go to Japan
With a Kickstarter scheduled for March 2023, publisher Alderac brings us a game for 1 to 4 players in which our goal will be to create the most epic trip to Japan you can imagine.
With a closed calendar that marks the days that we will be in the country, we will have to steal cards of activities and tourist attractions to complete our trip in the most efficient way possible and without going over budget. Let’s go to Japan It aims to be a most original idea that all fans of the Asian country will love.
Take a look at this one because the thing promises. freedom five is from the creators of arkham horror but, far from following that trail, what it proposes to us is a cooperative campaEsports Extrasfor 1 to 5 players in which we will have to put on the tights to live a narrative arc that will have us fighting against villains and making our powers grow while we deal with our lives normal as an ordinary citizen.
From the hand of TCG Factory, and still without a specific release date, in 2023 it will arrive Darwin’s Journey, a euro for 1 to 4 players to place workers that will allow us to accompany Charles Darwin to the Galapagos Islands while we explore the islands, collect samples of the local fauna and send them to museums with the intention of discovering the origin of the species. The game looks pretty, but it is also a real beauty.
We close with a curious reformulation of the classic Quo Vadis? which, far from limiting itself to copying the mythical game of the 90s, will confront us with new rules, the possibility of greatly increasing the number of players (from 3 to 7) and new strategies and skills to further twist the political struggle that it comes upon us.
In Vadis Zoo we will become a group of animals in a zoo that will seek to win the favor of the rest of the players to reach the highest position within the zoo’s government. Pikes and heated negotiations for a game that has also known how to shine visually.
