My Take: My daughter and I had the pleasure of play testing this game at The Malted Meeple with the designer Kris last year on International TableTop Day. We had a great time and anxiously awaited the release of the final game. We were able to play the release version of the game at this year’s TableTop Day, again with the designer. Kris even surprised us with a special promo Milkshake card in honor of The Malted Meeple!
Expansions and Replay-ability: There are no expansions for this game but it does have great replay-ability. Depending on what cards you play it gives you a variety of different outcomes which will keep you coming back to play this game over and over.
