Which is the best board game of all time? A question that surely has millions of answers, from each of the players around the world. In order to achieve a certain unanimity, BoardGameGeek has established a voting and ranking system for years with which to classify the different titles that are released. Users participate in this task, of course.
A website that has a point of reference for fans of board games in said system, as is the case with Metacritic for video games or Rotten Tomatoes for movies. Taking this into account, Brass: Birmingham just won the crown at the top of the rankings, dethroning Gloomhaven, which had been at the top for five consecutive years.

The Roxley Games artwork has been designed by Matt Tolman, Martin Wallace and Gavan Brown with art by Damien Mammoliti and Mr. Cuddington. The proposal is actually a sequel to Wallace’s 2007 hit called simply Brass. Here we are thrown in the middle of the United Kingdom during the time of the Industrial Revolutionthat is, from 1770 to 1870.
During those 100 years we can develop, build and establish our own network and industrial model, making sure that we achieve the maximum possible benefits. We can play from two to four players with games that vary in duration between 60 and 140 minutes, and since its launch in 2018, the work has won many awards. Good vibes led this succession of the crown, with the designer Isaac Childrens of gloomhaven congratulating Brass: Birmingham.
“I’m a big fan of Brass. It’s an incredibly well-designed game that offers a lot of interesting options and player interaction, and Roxley’s re-implementation is simply beautiful and very well produced. If we were to be outdone, I can’t think of a more universally appealing title for the folks at BoardGameGeek (except maybe Jaws of the Lion!),” he tells Wargamer.
