Board Game Review: Cities: Skylines – The Board Game

Board Game Review: Exit: The Stormy Flight

I honestly don’t know why I do this to myself. After covering three brilliant, incredibly clever, fourth wall breaking games in the Exit series, I’m now onto the fourth – The Stormy Flight. It’s ridiculously hard to write a review of the Exit games, because the puzzles and even the box itself can contain spoilers. They are, however, worth covering […]
