Sometimes you want a game that is quick and relaxing. Other times, you want a game to play all afternoon that taxes your mind. What do you do when you want a quick game that challenges your mind? You play a game like Whoosh: Bounty Hunters!
I have already said I am looking forward to playing Tower of Madness, but now it’s so close to coming out! It’s essentially a dice game where you are ‘punished’ by taking tentacles from the Tower and possibly losing your marbles.
