I was at my new FLGS last night and taught Sea Salt & Paper and thought it was time to review it after getting in another play with some new folks. I’ll be sure to pepper in some puns and dad jokes into the review, you know, just to spice things up. It’s always the season for puns. Sea Salt & Paper is a set collection style card game with adorable art and some clever game design.

I enjoy a variety of games from highly strategic to chaotic and silly. Fantasy Realms falls somewhere in between with many unique cards and lots of combos for points. Now there’s a Star Trek and a Marvel take on the game template. Let’s talk about these follow-ups and how they match up.
