For the holiday weekend, my wife and I visited some friends for a board game marathon. We played 10 games in total, but the standout for me was Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun
. It’s an extremely crunchy—and heavy - 4.1 / 5 weight on BoardGameGeek—dice-drafting Euro game. The obelisk is a bit extra
, but the sun-and-shade mechanic for replenishing the dice is clever. Our first game took 3-4 hours, but I imagine it would be quicker on subsequent plays.
