It’s Kinda Like …

10 Sep

When people ask what a particular game is like, it’s always very tempting to compare it to another game they might know.
“It’s like this … with a bit of that thrown in …”

Check out the fun board games (and card games) we played in our August event … many of them were similar to other games … or maybe just in my head …

Baby, it’s cold outside!

Good to see you too!
