Reviews
One Deck Dungeon (Gaming With Swag): “The variety is decent and changing up the heroes, bosses, and your luck in drawing the cards just change up the game each time. By the end you are rolling a massive pile of dice and finding the best ways to utilize them is a little puzzle each time which is immensely satisfying.”

Godzilla: Tokyo Clash (There Will Be Games): “The focus here is in the giddy excitement of big, dumb monsters lumbering around and squaring off in the downtown area, and the design is focused squarely on this aspect.  I find that when I start to feel critical about the design or the fact that there are other games in this design space that are ostensibly “better”, my inner child smirks at me and says “really, dude?”

Twin It (Just Push Start): “The fast, frantic fun caused by the deck of cards is exactly what will see it get to the table over and over again. Players cannot help but be competitive, making the occasional stolen set even more of a reason to cheer or groan.”
