Slapagories

I have a very soft spot for quick games and with good reason, they are easy to get people interested, the set up is fast and its takes nothing to explain the rules to get started. Scattegories is a great classic, but sometimes you want something a bit lighter, faster and with a tiny bit…

Throw Throw Burrito

Throw Throw Burrito is a game that combines cards and throwing things. Something I didn’t know I wanted and turns out I definitely needed.
