There’s nothing better than sitting down and playing through your favourite board game. However, after many play throughs you may be wanting more… Well we bring to you five expansions you should try to add new mechanics or elements to increase replayability and put a new spin on some household favourites.
Watch out! The Giants are charging down the mountains! They too want their share of the kingdoms under construction… and it’s going to cost you!
It’s without question that winner of Spiel des Jahres 2017 Kingdomino deserved an expansion. Age of Giants adds dominoes, giant tokens, challenge tiles, and allows a fifth player to join either Kingdomino or Queendomino. You also get a handy tile dispenser!
The highly popular strategy game Bunny Kingdom has an expansion! ‘In the Sky’ offers a new game board to the world of Bunny Kingdom that allows you to link fiefs in the sky with those on land.
It also includes new cards, new resources, a set of playing pieces, allowing five bunnies to play and a larger type of building that increases your influence by a factor of 5!
In Decrypto, your mission is to transmit secret codes without letting the opposing team intercept. In the Laserdrive expansion, the world of communication enters a new era thanks to laser discs! This cutting- edge technology promises to reinvent how we communicate with each other.
Collect two laser tokens and you’ll be able to try and guess one of the opposing teams’ key words. Guess right and you receive an interception token!
In this expansion to the Kennerspiel des Jahres 2018 winner, there are extra components to add a fifth player to the game, including further rubies and a new ingredient, Locoweed!
Also, if you’re struggling to find the perfect recipe, then maybe one of the herb witches can lend a hand!
The fantastic family game King of Tokyo has 2 power ups and 4 monster packs in total, meaning play can be customised a whole multitude of ways!
Cybertooth is a giant two-legged robot that can transform into a fearsome sabre-toothed tiger ready to take over Tokyo. The Monster Pack includes the new Beserk die, evolution cards and is also compatible with King of New York.
Whether you’re playing with an expansion or not, we’d love to know what games you’ll be playing this weekend, let us know via our social media!
