Reviews
Greece Lightning (Unfiltered Gamer): “Ultimately this is going to be best enjoyed by players new to the hobby or someone looking for a light-hearted, family-style game with just enough twists and turns to keep everyone engaged.”

Mariposas (There Will Be Games): “Mariposas is another game with appeal to people who might not ordinarily engage with board games. The turns are really easy – play a card, move a butterfly, maybe make another butterfly – but there’s a good depth of strategy there too.”

Popcorn Dice (Geeks Under Grace): “Popcorn Dice feels like a cousin of Zombie Dice. While it is far from a strategic experience, it is good for ultra-light, all-ages gameplay.”
