Released in 2004 as the fourth game in the Warcraft franchise, World of Warcraft has grown to become ubiquitous with the MMORPG genre over the 15 years since it debuted and now boasts over a hundred million registered accounts. Allowing for an incredible amount of player freedom, World of Warcraft allows players to choose the server (or realm) they wish to play in, as well as the character race and class they would like to play as and the faction they would like to align themselves to. With regular expansions added by Blizzard Entertainment and a seemingly-endless list of quests for players to complete and dungeons to conquer, World of Warcraft has become notorious for its addictive gameplay and has amassed a devoted legion of fans.

Tabletop Game #30

Set in the vast world of Dungeons & Dragons, Lords of Waterdeep places 2–5 players in the city of Waterdeep, the City of Splendors known for its political intrigue and shady back-alley dealings. Each player assumes the role of a powerful lord vying for control of Waterdeep’s resources through recruiting adventurers and sending them off on quests on the player’s behalf. Players may expand Waterdeep through purchasing buildings and hinder or help each other through the use of strategically played Intrigue cards. Taking anywhere from one hour to two to complete, Lords of Waterdeep is as challenging as it is addictive and is perfect for any game night.

This action-adventure game places players into the shoes of Mike Jones as he travels to C-Island in the South Seas to visit his archeologist uncle. When Mike arrives, however, he discovers that his uncle has gone missing, and it’s up to Mike to rescue him. This sets the player off on adventure throughout the South Seas as they hunt for Mike’s missing uncle, encountering monsters, labyrinths, talking animals and even extraterrestrial visitors along the way. Praised upon its release for its engaging story, gameplay and graphics, StarTropics remains a fan favorite of the NES era nearly 30 years after its debut.

Tabletop Game #31

This party game for 3–6 players places one player in the role of the Storyteller, who must make up a spontaneous short story based on a card from the hand they’ve been dealt. The other players must then each select one card they believe best matches the story the Storyteller told them, and then the Storyteller takes all the cards they’ve selected, as well as the card they based their story upon, shuffle them all together and show them to the players. The players must then determine which of the cards the Storyteller based their story on and make bets based on their selections. With gorgeous art that can be interpreted numerous ways, each game of Dixit is a unique experience which tests each player’s ability to sneakily convey meaning.
