I played some Steampunk Rally Fusion from @roxleygames over the weekend and had a blast. Engine building of a different kind, it's like Wacky Races without Muttley. Sassin frassin Alan Turing.
LEGACY OF YU is coming to Kickstarter Sep 6th
One of the best got even better. This is Viscounts of the West Kingdom from @garphillgames with the Gates of Gold and Keeper of Keys expansions added. There's an awful lot going on, but it all meshes nicely. What a game!
Reviews are like buses. Nothing for ages, then two in a row! I've been channeling my inner Sandi Toksvig, playing Danish dexterity dueling distraction, Klask from @KLASKgame . @bigpotatogames sent me a copy to review, which you can read here https://punchboard.co.uk/klask-review/
I've been playing Powerwash Simulator from @PowerWashSim , and finished it today. What a superb game. Enormously satisfying gameplay, story which starts normal and gets bonkers, and gnomes. 10/10 - would wash again.
