Cardboard Children: Quadropolis

Hello youse.

Quadropolis from Days of Wonder is a board game about building a city. Well, it’s not really. It doesn’t really feel like building a city at all.

Wot I Think: Sorcery! Parts 1 And 2

Three games into Inkle’s four-part video game conversion of Steve Jackson’s legendary choose-your-own-adventure (CYOA) Sorcery! books, I decided I should catch up on the first two, and review them.
