Born among the wealthy, with a silver spoon in my mouth, I was made for a game about the aristocracy. These are my people, so of course I had to play Aristocracy by Dr. Reiner Knizia and Tasty Minstrel Games. The secret is, I’m not really part of the aristocracy, but what they don’t know won’t hurt them. Join with me to take the place of the aristocracy and con your way in among the elite of society.
A mere glance at the box of Blue Lagoon and the soundtrack of Disney’s “Moana” starts playing in the back of my head. Both board game and movie are set in a Polynesian archipelago, against a background of exploration and discovery.
In Blue Lagoon by Blue Orange Games, players are seafarers exploring new-found islands and making them their home. Playing as rivalling tribes, there’s a tough competition for land and resources.
