Get your friends together, it’s time to build the most epic tree fort ever! Fort comes from the same publisher as the hobby hit Root, and features the same fantastic art style from Kyle Ferrin. His artwork fits Fort perfectly, too. Fort evokes a sense of playing in the backyard in the seventies and eighties - an interesting theme that no other board game explores.
Fortunately, Fort is easy to learn but still fun and challenging. It takes the form of a deckbuilder, where players draft cards to add to their decks over the course of the game. The cards that players collect are your schoolyard buddies, and each helps you build your treehouse fort in different ways. This includes collecting Toys and Pizza, worth lots of victory points.
If you’re looking for a family game with a unique theme, Fort is great pick.
