Dracula’s Feast is a 10-15 minute game of hidden roles and logical deduction for 4-8 players aged 10 and up. Each player takes on the role of a classic monster at a masquerade party - Identify and expose everyone else... and keep all those juicy villagers for yourself.
Scuttle! is a quick and simple card game suitable for pirates as young as 6. Based on the classic card game Cuttle, the game has been updated with pirate-themed art and new rules - it takes 5-10 minutes to play and each game is totally different.
No matter how you slice it, the game is a big deal. If you care about board gaming in 2016, you should know about Scythe. But its massive hype also brings with it the crushing weight of huge expectations from thousands of people who plunked down upwards of $100 (or more) for a single game. Add to that the cross-armed naysayers standing on the sidelines, ready to tear the game apart if it isn't something truly special.
