Powerline (What Board Game): “It might not be enough to turn the blades of a wind turbine, but it's enough to get the synapses in your brain to discharge happily. It's also a game that's pretty easy to explain and I love that it's so very tactile.”

Challengers!? (GeekDad): “Challengers! is quickly becoming one of my favorite quick games, particularly for a big group. At a recent local gaming convention, we managed to run a few 8-player games of it, and I love the way it really does give you the feel of a tournament in under an hour.”

Broken and Beautiful (Geeks Under Grace): “A lovely game with an attractive aesthetic. Its relaxing gameplay echoes the actual zen-like artistry of kintsugi. Recommended for fans of drafting.”
