Reviews
Doctor Who Fluxx (Purple Pawn): “Are you a fan of Doctor Who and want a simple, quick game to play? Here you go. If the theme doesn’t grab you, go for Zombie, Batman, Math, Chemistry, Monty Python…. There are many Fluxx variations to choose from.”

Noxford (iSlaytheDragon): “Just as its inspired Steampunk setting both embraces and irreverently upends Victorianism, this biting title adopts the trademarks of the filler category and then wrings it with an ever-changing white-knuckle Chess match of a card game that will leave you scheming and, likely, steaming.”

Sagrada (Tabletop Together): “I strongly believe that Sagrada is a great addition to anyone’s board game collection..”
