I did not get in as many games as usual this month. What I did get in was very good. Looking at the list the majority of the games in it could easily be a contender for top game of the month in any month this year. The one that got it deserved it for being unique, fun and flawless execution of the style it was going after.
Why is Rum & Bones is #1 for October: I really enjoyed playing Rum & Bones. This is the board game version of League of Legends MOBA style game. I was very addicted to League of Legends for the greater part of two years and this game felt as if I was playing a head to head game of it in person. Each character feels unique despite all being pirates. It was surprisingly easy to pick up and play and had plenty of risk and reward type strategy to it. This is currently my number 1 game for 2015 but with devoting November and December to catching up on all the games of 2015 we will see if it can maintain that title. Jordan should be doing a review for Rum & Bones sometime in November and look forward to seeing what he thought of it.
