Reviews
Flick of Faith (IGN): “It does have plenty of variety to keep you entertained, though, and most other flicking games are more complex or expensive which might keep them from your collection. The combination of value and accessibility here does make it particularly appealing for family play.”

Glory Islands (The Opinionated Gamers): “There are some interesting decisions to be made, but nothing that should take you more than a minute to consider.  As a result, the game tends to be fast paced, and I enjoy games that move at this speed.  I’ve had a chance to play this game both as a prototype and now as a finished product, and I think it’ll still have more plays as 2022 churns on.  It’s a good choice for a filler or closer in our group.”

Décorum (What’s Eric Playing): “I thought Décorum was quite a solid game, and if you’re a fan of decorating, you enjoy deduction, or you want to wrap your head around a challenging puzzle, I’d definitely recommend checking it out!”
