Welcome back to the PNP News!

Today, I am going to finish up the list of games that were released or updated in October. Over the next few days I'll post about the games from November and post an update about the various PNP Contests.



New Games

Mr. Cabbagehead is Away and Neddance Saves the Day with design and art by Todd Sanders
Mr. Cabbagehead is Away and Neddance Saves the Day is a solitaire game. This is a mini postcard game set in the Cabbageverse. (I just made that term up - you're welcome!) The hero from Mr. Cabbagehead's Garden is on holiday so it is up to Neddance to protect his garden from the annoying neighbors. But for every neighbor she drives away, the others are more determined to steal the vegetables! This is a simple-to-make PNP game with a single page board and a few chits.
The game is not currently available as PNP. (See the comments below.)
