You can also change the board slightly during play, thus messing up other players turns (or them yours). You...

Fog of Love – TL;DR Review

Fog of love is – according to the box – “romantic comedy as a board game”. A two-player only game, Fog of Love puts the players into the roles of characters, undertaking a romantic relationship.

The overall concept sounds simple, but incredibly smart game mechanics and a bit...
