Grab Carcassone and Splendor for cheaps in Fanatical’s digital board games sale

Mysterium: Ghost-Bothering Whodunnit Coming To PC

In the last week I've recommended ghost-bothering board game Mysterium [publisher's website] to two different people asking about which board game they should pick up for a family Christmas present and I think at least two other people have picked up their own copy of the game having played it at my house in the last month.
