Brikks Released

Nostalgia of Board Games
iSlaytheDragon has written an article about the relationship between tabletop games and nostalgia. "For those of us who grew up with board games, there’s often a strong nostalgia attached to the hobby. Maybe we fondly recall playing with our family at the holidays, or marathon late nights with friends in college. For me, the memories center around both."

Tricky Tides (Geeky Hobbies): “While the game had no reason to work, it ends up working surprisingly well. The trick taking mechanics and pick-up and deliver mechanics are not particularly original on their own but they actually supplement one another really well.”

Moon Base (The Game Shelf): “It's an incredible two player abstract game with depth of strategy and simplistic beauty in both its look and mechanisms.”
