After two years away, Shelley and I once again organized our annual Meeplefest Invitational and therefore got to play some interesting and unusual games over the course of 5 fun-filled days. The first two fall into the polyomino genre and may be harder to track down, but are well worth a quick discussion.

Alluvium by Yusuke Sawaguchi from Fudacoma Games


Yojohan Pepa Saikei by Shimamuranao from Hallelujah Rockboy
