I received a prototype of Monsters and Maidens, a push your luck dice rolling game that’s aimed at coming out this year. Push your luck games are some of my favorite to play, despite the inability to do well at most of them. This one has some unique mechanics to it though.
Growing up, I absolutely loved the movie The Princess Bride. There was the right kind of humor in the movie that I could watch it again and again and catch different jokes each time. Now GameSalute has the rights to make official games, and they sent me a preview copy of Prepare to Die, their Princess Bride inspired party game.
