Clearance Sale Highlights - Family Strategy Games

Posted by Barbara C on 13 January, 2020 0 comments

Our current clearance sale presents an opportunity to grab some great games at prices you will not find anywhere else in Australia. All current stock is discounted but to help you find some particularly interesting bargains I'm posting a series highlighting particular games.

There is a concept in modern gaming of "game weight". Heavy games are games that are typically quite complex, typically take more than 120 minutes to play, require some serious effort to understand, take 30-60 minutes to explain and a few plays to see the successful strategies. Lighter games are less complex, can typically be played in under an hour, and can be explained in 15 minutes or less.

The community site for board games, Board Game Geek, even has a weight rating scale for games that gives some idea of the weight of a game. This set of games fall on the lighter end of that rating scale, so even though they are still strategy games they are particularly suitable for new players and are sometimes referred to as Family Strategy Games or Gateway Games. Prices below are for new customers (use code JanSale at checkout). Existing customers will get even better prices (use code JanSale25).
