This review with images appeared originally at the Oriental Boardgames blog at http://www.orientalboardgames.com/2016/11/03/review-4-scratc...

This time, I will talk about a game from the designer that I consider the best Japanese designer – Kuro, of Manifest Destiny. Just to have an idea, he often creates about 20 games a year (but he decreased the volume a bit recently – see at http://ash.jp/~md/game.htm), launching and selling the games at TGM (and also in Essen). Each of his games has themes that may be considered very strange (examples – a game where each player controls a housemaids team cleaning the house room by room earning points, a game where you are a band and try to “warm up” the fans in a gig, and a game where players form pairs of dancers who participate in a dance contest and each player has to try to synchronize the cards played with their peers) and commercially unviable, but he creates and launches the games anyway.

One of his fairly well known games is The Ravens of Thri Sahashri The Ravens of Thri Sahashri, which, like most Kuro games, is a card game with a bunch of rules, and you have to play a 3 or 4 times until you begin to understand the game: -P

But back to the review in question, Scratch House! Based on Winchester Mystery House , a bizarre American house that did not stop to be increased, in Scratch House our mansion was destroyed and we have to rebuild it. Luckily, some fairies who were passing by and appeared to help us, and, more than that, they also want to live with us in the mansion!

Not user why, but I can't change the original post to put the full review, nor put it in a comment :-(
