Escape Tales The Awakening

From various exit and escape games we are used to find ourselves as players in sometimes bizarre situations. This is no different with Escape Tales: The Awakening by Jakub Caban, Matt Dembek and Bartosz Idzikowski. We have puzzled our way through and wrote down a review of the game published by Board & Dice for you. In doing so, we do without spoilers. You won’t read anything about the story that you won’t already know from the box, the rules or the structure. Speaking of the story: Already on the game box you will be informed that this is a Story Driven Escape Game. You can read here how fascinating we personally found the story-driven escape game.

Fairy Tile – Once upon a Tell as board game

Fairy Tile will take you to fairyland. In the legend game by the authors Matthew Dunstan and Brett J. Gilbert from IELLO not with but against each other to tell a story. The first of the two to four players to finish his fairy tale book, which consists of different sections of a story in the form of tasks, wins. And they lived happily ever after. Or something like that… Of course there is more to it than just reading the text of cards. But what you will notice first is the great presentation of the game. And if there’s one thing IELLO can do, it’s make games that look pretty. Responsible for the excellent illustrations in this game is Miguel Coimbra, who among other things also breathed life into 7 Wonders and Smallworld.

Seikatsu – The spring begins

Seikatsu is an abstract tile laying game by the authors Matt Loomis and Isaac Shalev in which you compete with up to three other players to see who has the best view of the garden in the middle of the board. You take turns placing tiles in the garden, each showing one of four birds and one of four flowers. It is not only a beautiful game in terms of appearance, but its short playing time also makes it very suitable for in-between times. But how does it actually work?
