  1. Is Star Wars Deckbuilding relaxing becouse you always win?

  2. It seems like drafting is the ‘chill’ mechanic- my top 3 are Cascadia, Fantasy Realms, and Lost Cities card game

  3. I would add Roam to the list. Despite being competitive game, it feels very relaxing putting your tokens on the main board by patterns in your hand.

  4. I really like this ❤❤❤❤❤

  5. Just played Viticulture as chill game. Was very good.

  6. these guys are so f*****g funny 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 4:58

  7. You triggered me so much when in last shot of Dorfromantik you placed illegally 🤣🤣

    But for me Spires End: Hildegard probably is the most chill one I play if I don't want to think too much

  8. Thanks for the list. I learned how to play 7 Wonders many years ago and don't remember much about it, but I was introduced to 7 Wonders Duel last year and have been enjoying a bunch over the past several months. Maybe I'll try 7 Wonders Architects if I see it at a con or game library.

  9. Oh great list. I personally use Meadow to get relaxed. For me it feels almost as if I was walking outside.

    Wingspan also works mostly the same.

    Artifacts Inc is also a relaxing game to me. Looking forward to the new Creature Caravan 😊

  10. I feel like our definition of "chill game" is a bit different. But I guess the chillness of the game can really vary depending on players and attitude with you are jumping into game.

  11. I am sad that wingspan is not on the list. it is pretty chill .

  12. Nice Topic! I would suggest Cafe from Rola&Costa (for solo)

  13. I certainly found Planet Unknown much more relaxed / less punishing than Isle of Cats. It impressed me. Both it an Cascadia are great as well at ensuring new/novice players still score well… at least so they feel in sight of an experienced player.

  14. Planet unknown did what little games did before in my circle of friends: made the ragers not rage for an hour and just enjoy the game.

  15. Love this theme. Now I have even more games to read about and find people who have them, to play! Hahaha

    If I may, Lacuna would be my addition to this list. Great little game, astoundingly simple and beautiful, we've been enjoying it on lunch breaks or as a late night quick one.

  16. Thanks for the list! I missed Canopy :''

  17. Great list. I own 4 of the top 5 lol. One I would add to this list is Planted. Very chill game and amazing production for a low cost.

  18. Just discovered this channel and I'm obsessed

  19. Great list! I'd like to add honorable mentions;
    1. Meadow
    2. Dungeon Mayhem
    3. Tiny Towns
    4. Trails

    All very low overhead and just simple fun. Take a walk and get points taking in the beauty in Meadow and Trails. Have a little "magic light" carnage in dungeon Mayhem's pre-built decks. Or puzzle out the best town in Tiny Towns. All great choices for me.

  20. Cascadia for me. Even got my dad and his girlfriend to play and understand it.

  21. My favorite chill game is Sunset Over Water. Beautiful.

  22. We play Lands of Galzyr, when we don't have the capacity to play anything else. It is mostly reading with simple decision making mixed in

  23. is Eila and something shiny replayable? or is it a one play through only?

  24. I agree with this list 100%, however, I would also add "Planted" and "Parks" : )
