Though Forbes Magazine is not normally associated with board games reporting, it has published the occasional article on the hobby over the past couple of years.  In the intersection of lifestyle, innovation, technology, and family life, Forbes has invested some time in getting to know the board game hobby better.  Recently, it paid a visit to this year’s New York Toy Fair and discovered 30 new board games they felt should not be missed. Included in their report is a 50-minute video of the 30 games explained by the game presenters at the New York Toy Fair.  Some of the games in the video were just announced at the toy fair and provides some of the first looks at the game.  A few were older games that have been out for a number of years or were recently re-released.  Of course, Villainous, which took Toy of the Year award to the New York Toy Fair, tops the list.  Other great games such as Photosynthesis, Planet, Stuffed Fables, and Bunny Kingdom can be found on the Forbes list.  Check out the Forbes article to see their full list and their video report from the 2019 New York Toy Fair.
