2023 is over! And 2024 is filled with much, much more leisure than we can handle, from movies to series, video games, comics, books, and of course… Board games! Because, deep down, who doesn’t have as a secret purpose to spend more nights with friends, snacks, and a good ‘Dixit’? Pay attention, because this is what we will be playing for the next 366 days.

Hero Realms Dungeons

Over one million dollars raised on Kickstarter for a game that, if you have played ‘Hero Realms’, you already know is a must-have. Classic characters from role-playing games, an unparalleled adventure, a one-on-one up to four players and at the same time a cooperative for two delving into dungeons. Few things are more enticing in 2024.


A space-opera with fast-paced gameplay, funny designs, and a unique style of play. For 2 to 4 players seeking pure strategy, 18 different dice, about 100 wooden ships… Those who have already tried it say that it has come out very inspired, although you need to have played more games before to fully enjoy it. We’ll have to see it.

Clank! Legacy 2

If you have played ‘Clank! Legacy‘ you know what’s in store… And it’s not little. A game that spans over time, that will change the board forever, that will surprise you before, during and after each game. Does that sound like a lot? Well, on top of that, it’s based on the original ‘Clank!’ which was already fun on its own. It’s not going to be cheap, of course, but it will be worth every euro.

The Queen’s Dilemma

‘The King’s Dilemma’ is one of those games that you have to play in a group, no matter what, and always the same group to fully enjoy it. Twists, twists, and more twists in an adventure that will depend entirely on your decisions with an innovative gameplay that will put you in front of the biggest challenge of your life: gathering a group of four people who want to meet every weekend for a couple of months.

The 7th citadel

Originally it was going to be released in October 2022, but well, the important thing is that it comes out, after all. Your mission will be to discover what the Citadel in which you live hides. Or maybe you will never discover it! In a world full of resources, cards, LCG and interchangeable games, someone who wants to change everything is appreciated… even if it doesn’t go well at all.

2024 comes ready to become your gamer year! Roll the dice, prepare cards, fight against enemies, gather resources: let the game begin.
