Bequest Released
WizKids has released a new 'I Cut, You Choose' game. "Each round, every player gets a hand of five cards that they’ll need to split with their neighbor, representing some of Dr. Schism’s assets. It could be Treasure, Gadgets, the deeds to Hideouts, or even Evidence of his misdeeds! You’ll decide how to split the 5 cards, but split them wisely, as your neighbor will choose who gets which pile!"

MicroMacro: Crime City – Full House (Just Push Start): “More of the same, but it is a great “same” that continues to elevate the Where’s Wally logic of finding things into a memorable experience. If you had issues with the original then, unless it was the lack of parental advice on what cases contain, you won’t find a revolutionised experience here.”
