Founders of Gloomhaven is a competitive tile-placement, action-selection, city-building game in which each player controls a fantastical race working to build the city of Gloomhaven and gain influence over its residents. This is a standalone game set in the same universe as Gloomhaven. The events, however, take place hundreds of years before Gloomhaven and depict the original construction of the city.

Rajas of the Ganges is a game I never feel gets the love it should do. We've been playing it regularly all year, and it appeared on our table again on Tuesday evening, which has prompted its inclusion as my 'Game of the Week'. The game is a worker placement game, but you can only do many of the actions if you have the correct colour of, or numbers on, the dice. The game is played over a number of rounds and there is plenty of different options each round for the players to consider... do you go to the quarry to build something new in your own province? Attend a patron in the Great Mogul's Palace? Head to the harbor to sail up the river? or go to the Market to get some much needed cash?

During the course of the game you will be earning both Money and Fame and it's the person who manages to balance these best who will win the game. The game finishes when a players Money and Fame marker cross paths.
