When it comes to the overall ranking of games released in 2015, there was one game that came out on top.
Mombasa combines all the elements that make competitive strategy games fun. The player interaction is decisive. The planning required is intense. The strategy choices are meaningful. And last but not least, it’s brave enough to take a risky theme and deliver a game with a non-offensive presentation.
For Controlled Area Gaming, it is difficult to find fault with Mombasa’s design. It exemplifies everything that’s exciting and beautiful about modern board games.
