Voyages is an open sandbox roll and write exploration game. It is easy to learn and endlessly replayable.
With each map, the complexity and challenge grows. Find your favorite map!
I'll offer you my overview of the game along with a ranking of each map. Keep in mind though: I REALLY like this game and it was super hard to put them in any order at all.

I love a good card game that doesn't take too long to play. And these 5 "go to" card games are perfect to fill any time you have either at the beginning of game night, in between games, or at the end of the night to cool down.
I also include my runners up to give you even a couple more games that just missed my list. Stay around for my number one, though, at the end! Watch it here: youtu.be/oJZTrkY5mlU
LOQ is a word game with a twist. Each round, there are bonus word points and strange, unpredictable restrictions that stretch your creativity and critical thinking.
This game works great for groups as there are two game plays: teams vs teams and fully cooperative. I love sharing it in my English classes with my students to work those soft skills and word selection/vocabulary.
