Go Eco: Video Review

In episode 72, I share my thoughts regarding this gorgeous card game, Go Eco. A 2-3 player game (or up to 6 with a second deck of cards), players race to be the first to earn the predetermined amount of game-winning points by collecting cards into their hands which make up ecosystems. A little bit set-collecting, a little bit take-that, and whole bunch of nature.     Learn more about Go Eco on the Kickstarter page here!  Music Intro and outro: Rainbow Street by Scott Holmes Playthrough: Toys by Steve Combs

Before and After: Groves

Groves is a beautiful game designed by Steven Aramini and Dan Letzring, with artwork by Nolan Nasser, and published by Letiman Games. Groves had a very successful Kickstarter campaign, reaching a funding amount of $38,123 (433% of its goal) and 957 backers. This game recently began fulfillment to its Kickstarter backers, including me! I was lucky enough to own one of the prototype copies of this game and super stoked to compare it to the final production copy. Now that I have both in my possession, I can do just that! Without further ado, Before and After: Groves edition.

Chatty Cassie: Gen Con Favorites of 2017

It is no surprise to anyone when I tell them I like indie games. I mean the name of the website I write for is The Indie Game Report. When I attended Gen Con this past August, I was set on finding games that weren’t listed in “The Hotness” on BoardGameGeek. I wanted to find the games which were treasures hidden among the shiny franchised games.
