Fairway reviews a recent Kickstarter delivery from Genius Games: Ion: A Compound Building Game.
Dino Dude Ranch is a great family, surprisingly adult-friendly, dice rolling game of wrangling dinosaurs and avoiding tar pits. Fairway takes a look at this Kickstarted game and its deluxe, velociraptor expansion.
Hello hello! For our third week of October, I have chosen a wonderful bluffing/press-your-luck kind of game for the whole family, Tricks and Treats by Nazca Games. The story of this game is all the players have returned home from trick-o-treating, and are told by their parents to dump all the candy out and split it evenly amongst all our baskets. Our parents then attempted to secretly assign us all a specific basket, but we are tricky, and have figured out which basket is ours.

The way you knock out other players is by playing cards from your hand that either satisfies the current rule AND makes you be winning the game, or you change the rule to make it so you are winning the game.
