Players: 2-4 Age: 8+ Teaching Time: 10 mins Playing Time: 30-45 mins Setup Time: 10 mins Value For Money: Mid Luck: Low Complexity: Mid Strategy: Mid Price: £35 Recommended: Sure Website: https://www.planbgames.com/en/ Winning the Spiel Des Jahres means increased sales for a game, a lot of increased sales actually. For a designer it can mean that they’ve just poured rocket fuel into their career, for some it can also mean that they’re set making versions of the award-winning game for the rest of their career. Alan R. Moon has been happily putting Ticket to Ride versions out for some time now, and splendid they be. Sometimes its not clear how great an idea it is, with Azul there are now two ‘

Betrayal: Legacy

Players: 3-5 Age: 12+ Teaching Time: 10 mins Playing Time: 45-90 mins Setup Time: 10 mins Value For Money: Mid Luck: High Complexity: Mid Strategy: Mid Price: £50 Recommended: Maybe Website: https://wpn.wizards.com/en/products/betrayal-legacy Betrayal’s none legacy version is a crowd splitter of a game, some people love it, some people hate it.

Players: 1-4 Age: 14+ Teaching Time: 10 mins Playing Time: 30-60 mins Setup Time: 2 mins Value For Money: Mid Luck: Mid Complexity: Low Strategy: Mid Price: £20 Recommended: Yes Website: https://pearlgames.be/boardgame/bloody-inn/ Solo Review I’ve picked up The Bloody Inn in my FLGS several times but couldn’t quite justify the price tag for a solo game I didn't know much about, which is why I was so very happy when I got a review copy sent out to me.
