A Welsh language board game that’s not Scrabble or Monopoly? Sold!


And I mean sold.


The only words I understand on there (other than the English) are “big” and “small”, so I don’t think I’d score very well :laughing:

If I was more confident I’d buy that but my Welsh is nowhere near good enough. I’m probably going to buy the English version though because its good to support local designers.

Not that this is particularly interesting, but I’ve noticed on the last couple of podcasts that Ava is being referred to as ‘she’ and ‘her’ rather than ‘they’ and ‘their’. I’m assuming that it is change that Ava has decided to make.

No comment other than that, just something I’d noticed.

Her Twitter bio suggests either are fine.

The ‘Welsh’ version is actually bilingual, which is presumably why it’s a few quid extra.
