This has been a hit with everyone I've introduced it to over the last year (at least two people have bought their own copies) - except Rob! But you can't please all the people etc.

It sits nicely in the same quick-witted light bluffing game oeuvre as Skull and Perudo, and like them makes a great end of night pre-pub closer. Looks good too, and it's cheap as chips - get some in!

And now for something a little different ... my favourite Vlaada Chvatl (Through the Ages, Galaxy Trucker, Codenames) game.

Two to four players (although I'll confess to only having played with two) card-driven pattern-creation light skirmish game (not many of them about) that rewards spatial thinking and the ability to think a turn or two ahead. It looks good, and had some interesting expansions (although the four factions in the box are more than enough to get going with).

Again Mark's friends at Shut Up and Sit Down (amongst others) raved about it in their video review - go check it out if you want to take a look at a pretty unique game. £25 seems a bargain to me.
