In this Box Breaking Matt takes a look at Nevermore for the first time.  What will this classic bring us in the interpretation of Nevermore by Smirk and Dagger Games.

Being a Magic player I’m really looking forward to how this game plays, but first I’m going to read Nevermore and shortly after I’ll bring you the review.

We know well the story of Poe’s Raven. But what came before?

Is it bird – or something more, forced to walk the earth in darkness evermore? You may yet learn the answer first hand.

Sutakku is a dice stacking game that uses chance, and multiplication to be a game of critical thinking.  Watch as Matt Busts it open.  From Smirk and Dagger Games.

 

 

 

We did get to play Sutakku and it is a lot of fun.  My initial impression was this too easy to stack, but the game mechanics change that.  Check back soon for a demo and a review.
