Onitama – Simple & Fun

Despite how much I enjoy the game, it is something I’m pretty willing to admit about chess. With any game like this, you are bound to see variations across different cultures and evolutions as time goes by. Today I’ll be looking at one such game:  Onitama.

Machi Koro Review

Overview

This is board game review 10

Having gotten much enjoyment from various city building and city management games, when I heard of Machi Koro I was intrigued to say the least. Machi Koro is a game for 2-4 published by IDW games.
