We get timely and talk about the time-honored tradition of playing family-friendly* tabletop games while immobilized by overconsumption. We look at a few golden classics and a few that could interest even the hardest-core gamer as well as her less intense family members. Here’s what we discussed:
- Machi Koro – November’s Game of the Month, so it’s 20% off at Blue Highway Games
- Epic Spell Wars – and here’s some more great background on Rob Heinsoo’s blog. (We compared the art by Nick Edwards to Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, but in that post Heinsoo calls it Erol Otus meets Robert Crumb meets Adventure Time.)
* For most values of “family-friendly,” anyway.
