Reviews
Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza (Just Push Start): “It is brilliant for family gatherings where other board games wouldn’t fit in and there is no trivia in sight. It is silly, yet it is fun.”

Oceans (There Will Be Games): “All in all, Oceans represents something more than a sequel as it borders on a redevelopment of key concepts and ideas.”

OTTO Game Over (The Opinionated Gamers): “It is definitely a beautiful game to look at, but one which maybe has slightly more randomness than I’m looking for in a true abstract.  But if you don’t think of it as a strict abstract, it’s a solid game that allows for some advance planning, but one where you’re more likely to have to roll with whatever the game throws at you”
