Alright, fans, this is going to be a good one, so strap on your seat belt and let me take you downtown where best stuff happens. You see, there are very few games that I think are a solid 10 rating based on factors such as production quality, value, and the most important aspect of any game, the level of fun it provides. Well, Mission Command: Sea isn’t a perfect 10, but it’s pretty damned close. The one thing that it lacks, the one thing holding it back from a destiny of greatness, is just a little more complexity.
There are times when one needs a quick, fun and easy game to spend a few minutes between chores, or while waiting for something. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, it doesn’t have to be amazing, it just have to be fun. Forbidden Island does that really well.
The Adventurers has been nominated three times in the Unboxed Awards, once for Best Family Game, once for Most Innovative and once for Best Artwork. and I’ll let you know if I agree with these nominations at the end.
