I am constantly surprised to find out that some gamers do not know about this series.
In case you've never heard of it, Gipf is among the most ambitious board game projects... well... ever. Smart, fun, fast, and well-designed. They leave Ingenious in the dust.
Dvonn is the best game in the series, but I recommend that you play them to find your "style." Pünct looks really smart. But it's new and I haven't played it yet.
