Board for the Holidays

andysm Andrew: Hi everyone and happy pre-holidays!  The time for presents is nearly upon us!

jessm Jess: Yay presents!  And cookies!  And snow and trees and lights!

dianasm Diana: Mmm…cookies…

robsm Rob: And presents!

Never let Jess near your game components unsupervised. She might turn them into awesome.

‘Tis the season!  There’s snow on the ground (in some places, I think?), a chill in the air, and endless hours of family get-togethers to enjoy/endure (depending on our perspective and relatives)!  Gameosity loves this time of year, because it’s a chance to spread our love of board games to people who might not normally think to pick up a game and try it out!

andysm Andrew: …Fair point.

But as I was saying.  No matter who you are, there’s a pretty good chance that the winter months mean gift-giving is in your future (and gift getting, if you’ve been good).  So for the next few days we are going to review a smattering of games that we think would make great gifts in addition to being great games.  We’ll try to hit some budget games, some stocking stuffers, some big-ticket items, and something for the whole family.

So keep your eye on us as we head into holiday overdrive!  And later today we will be reviewing one of the big-ticket games, the perfect segue from the ghoulish horror of Halloween into the chilling embrace of winter…

Here's a hint:  You will learn to *fear* that red die...
