Best board games (v2020) [EN]

I haven’t played a lot of new games this year. Mostly because of the pandemic. Last time i had a game party was at the beginning of March. Which was also the time i played one of the new to me games. Which actually was Pandemic: The Cure. And we won 🙂 But real life situation was more complicated. I also haven’t played any new game aside from Hadara on Yucata or BGA, although there were a lot of new games created in these systems. But most of them didn’t peek my interest. And i guess i kind of cooled off on board games in general. Watch less reviews and related content on Youtube and play less on Yucata. But i still like playing and maybe 2021 will have more new discoveries. As usual, Top 100 complilated using Pub Meeple’s Ranking Engine.
