Tag - Step Ladder
Many board gamers out there have shelves full of games – each representing a different play style and different mechanisms. But if you like one game, how do you find similar games? If you like Game A, then what other game should you get to build upon that?
So we at Meeple Mountain coined the term “Board game step ladder”. Take one game that’s pretty standard and fairly easy to find. Then, we associate that with other games that take the concepts and core mechanics that game presents and then build upon or improve them. As you climb the ladder, the games become more involved and more challenging. As you descend, the games become easier and more accessible.
