Reviews
Stuffed Fables (Meeple Mountain): “a great family game for both the young and old. There is enough inspiration from Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman to draw in players for Stuffed Fables visual style, the mechanics are fun and challenging so it does not feel like a ‘kids’ game and the story is engaging, keeping players wanting more.”

Calico (The Game Aisle): “It’s colorful, it’s easy to learn and difficult to “master,” and there’s some variation in play so you don’t feel like it’s the same challenge over and over again.”

Risky Chicken (Board Game Halv): “A very simple and straightforward board game that mashes up the mechanics of press your luck and the prisoner's dilemma to make for a streamlined and exciting experience set against a fun world of Chicken puns.”
