If you enjoy any of these popular games, here's a Pandasaurus recommendation!
Where Sobek makes its departure from Jaipur is the game board. There's more public information available which requires more planning ahead.
If your copy of Ticket to Ride has been well-loved and you're looking for something with a slight upgrade in difficulty, let's introduce you to Skull Canyon: Ski Fest! One of the mechanics of Skull Canyon is collecting and turning in matching sets of slope cards (similar to collecting train cards in Ticket to Ride), but as opposed to building a route you're skiing down a slope!
And if one of the things you like about TTR is being able to block opponents, we have a very special friend in Skull Canyon called the Yeti. :-)
Roll-and-write games have taken the community by storm over the last few years. So much that companies are coming out with roll-and-write versions of their already popular games. Similar to The Isle of Cats: Explore & Draw, Dinosaur Island Rawr 'n Write stays true to a lot of its predecessor's gameplay while seamlessly incorporating new mechanics. There's also a polyomino puzzle in both games!
Real-time games are not for the faint of heart. Therefore, if you enjoy the frenetic nature of Rival Restaurants, Wildstyle is your new best friend! While you're beholden to a timer in Rival Restaurants, Wildstyle rounds continue until the end is triggered. This allows for a less rushed feeling (although trust us, you'll still want to be moving quickly for those cards).
As of publishing this post, Wildstyle is available for preorder and scheduled to release September 17.
