TableTopTakes: Wits & Wagers

TableTopTakes: Wits & Wagers

When it comes to party games, there are only a very few I like. I have talked about it recently with the TableTopTakes of Stipulation, but there are a few different types of party games, and a lot of them have a limited shelf life,…

TableTopTakes: Draftosaurus

I’ve talked about deck building games a number of times before, and about how I’m not much of a fan of Dominion. Ascension is the game that I would use to introduce people into deck building, and I think it’s a more interesting deck builder,…
