#228: It's a Wonderful World/Kingdom


Not every game needs to be four huge boxes full of other boxes and plastic. Some can be delightfully simple games… with boxes that are too big due to crowdfunding. Other games could be underappreciated Reiner Knizia classics brought to a new underappreciating audience! Via, I guess, the medium of crowdfunding. Hm. I suppose I don’t have a point, except that we, like pearls before swine or a Knizia before a gamer, are ungrateful contradictory ingrates.
