Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 – A Fresh and Exciting Pandemic Game

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 - A fresh new Pandemic game

Tim and I are really enjoying Pandemic Legacy: Season 2.

Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island - A cooperative game filled with Euro goodness

Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island is a cooperative, worker-placement game that I’d had my eye on for over a year.
