  1. Got this a couple days ago for valentines day from my wife. Cant wait to play it.

  2. This is too fiddly for a simple roll and write. Will not play this again

  3. Got a chance to play this at Origins. Love it! Must have. 🙂

  4. This has become a favorite because it’s so easy to teach and play, is quick and strategic, and yeah the light theme helps. So far I’ve been playing on Tabletopia but am definitely getting a physical copy.

  5. Looks interesting. Reminds me of Isle of Skye meets roll and write, minus the auction in IoS. I like how simple it is, but looks thinky enough to be interesting.

  6. Yeah, had some folks rope me into a game of this at GENCON. This is seriously not a game that's normally up my alley and I ended up liking it pretty well. Goes to show that you should sometimes give games a chance that might not be in your wheelhouse. Great review Tom.

  7. I love tetris, my partner loves sudoku. I don't like games w/a lot of backstory, my partner looooves in depth board games. This game looks like the perfect 2 player game for us! Thanks for sharing your review, super helpful when I'm trying to Christmas shop for something I don't know much about!.
