Gen Con has come and gone, but I've been playing the games me and my friends brought back. I normally write long-winded written reviews, but I've been toying with the idea of doing ultra-concise reviews.

So here are my micro reviews of Gen Con 2018 games. A few of these are based on 1-2 plays. I had posted this on Twitter earlier (@OpinionatedGmrs) but clarified some of the descriptions here.

This reprint is a cool entry in the draw-and-discard genre that reminds me a little of Lost Cities or Pinata, but with a really cool mechanic that sometimes makes me nervous about drawing cards as that might help my opponent.

If you liked Tigris & Euphrates, you’ll probably like this, which is its “sister game,” but with a few new twists (but if you didn’t like T&E, I doubt you like Y&Y).
