Best Science Board Games

Interview With Board Game Artist
Board Game Atlas has posted an interview with Natalie Dombois, who has illustrated several board games including Kiwetin and Spirits of the Forest. "I enjoy abstract art. And I'm not talking about the ones you see in modern museums, but the kind of art you can see below. There's room for interpretation, and it makes you take a second glance to reflect on the artist's intent instead of just passing by. That's how I feel about Natalie's art."

Reviews
Kingdomino: Duel (iSlaytheDragon): “Duel only offers small tweaks to the basic gameplay and adds in too much un-mitigable luck. Unless you really love roll and writes, the original is the champ.”

Paranormal Detectives (Board Game Quest): “A unique take on the investigation genre that can be a lot of fun with the right group.”

Mmm! (GeekDad): “After having played a handful of times with my kids, we have only won about fifty percent of the time. It is that challenge that keeps me engaged and teaches kids how to improve.”
