Friday Rules - 17.01.2014



Game of the Week – Steam Park. Steam Park is a brilliant new family strategy game for 2-4 players with an fantastic theme and beautiful components, that is tipped by many to feature highly in this year’s Spiele des Jahres awards. In the game, players compete to build the best steam-powered theme park, while struggling to keep the parks clean and profitable. A wonderful game which involves frantic dice-rolling with a very clever system of ride-building, we think this will be a smash hit with gamers of all ages. For more information, check out the video reviews from Tom Vasel and Grey Elephant Gaming.
