It’s coming to the end of the year, and what does that mean, lots of people putting out their Top X for 2017 lists. The Dice Tower does this themselves as they have already released their Top 10 Games of 2017 and Top 10 Pop Culture of 2017 on Youtube. But not to be left out, Popular Mechanics has now released their list for the Top 50 Games of 2017. What is interesting about their list is that they are a lot of great games on here from across the spectrum, from party games, to micro games, to heavy strategy games, and even Kickstarter games. Although like any list, some maybe are not as great but get by on notoriety, but strangely also some games not from 2017 make the list. Some of those games on the list include Star Realms, Quantum, and Codenames, which are great games, but odd choices for being included on a 2017 list. Either way, check out their list to see the top 50 “new” board games for this year of 2017.
