Before and After: Groves

 

 

Groves is a beautiful game designed by Steven Aramini and Dan Letzring, with artwork by Nolan Nasser, and published by Letiman Games. Groves had a very successful Kickstarter campaign, reaching a funding amount of $38,123 (433% of its goal) and 957 backers. This game recently began fulfillment to its Kickstarter backers, including me!

Without further ado, Before and After: Groves edition.

Monster Dice Review

In episode 69 I take a look at a game set called Monster Dice, by Brian Edwards. Monster Dice comes with carved dice which look like monsters, and candy cards. Using these components, players can choose to play an array of games, including the two I show you in this video, Candy Grab and Sugar Rush.
