From Solo to Terra Mystica: how do we choose our games?

In less than a month, we have released 2 very famous and emblematic board games: Solo and Terra Mystica.

Solo (taken together with its twins: "Uno", "Crazy Eights", ... ) is one the most popular family card games, and maybe the most popular. It is the kind of game that "everybody knows how to play" / "everyone played at least once". It is a simple game, with a lot of luck.

Terra Mystica is one of the most popular "core eurogame", and maybe the most popular. It is the kind of game that is a real challenge to handle, the type of game experienced board gamers love. It is a deeply strategic game, figuratively speaking we could say it is a kind of "Chess with steroids".

So, why is it that we choose to publish on BGA games like these two, that have nothing in common?

Well, they do have 1 big thing in common. We do have fun playing them!

We think the release of these 2 latest games is a nice opportunity to express once more what motivates us: we love games. All kind of games. We don't want to focus only on "best sellers" because we'd like to give a chance to every single game we enjoy. We don't want to be a website only for "family games", or only for "core games", because we have fun with a lot of different kind of games and we'd like to share this love with you.

A lot of you are regularly surprised by our game choices. Some of you post comments on each news: "thanks, but now please adapt game X". Well, the thing is also that we like to surprise you and we hope to continue to surprise you in the next months with new games you hadn't heard of before, new games you didn't have a chance to try yet, and games you didn't expect to see here on BGA.

See you soon for a new game!
Greg & Emmanuel

Thank you for your continued good works and keep them coming :) I know Twilight Imperium would be too complicated a game to install here ( 5 to 7 hours of game time ) but that would be fun! 7 wonders would be fairly easy I think but doubt the owners would give up the permission.....

You didn't actually say HOW games are chosen.

I've played a few games of Terra Mystica now and really enjoy it. I think of it more like Catan on steroids rather than chess on steroids, just because chess on its own level so to speak. Thanks for bringing it here so I could try it out!
