Antler island - A spring watch game from the BBC

What did you expect from a fragor game? This game delivers a lot of fun, a laugh or five and an enjoyable 45 minutes of light gaming.

Oliver won, his first NBG victory, congrats.

I liked the simultaneous action selection and the conversational interaction that came with such a light and fun themed game but Antler Island as a game has so many flaws you need an elevator to inspect them all. As long as you're prepared for this, you could enjoy the game. What else can be said for a game that, as part of the rules, requires everyone to mock and jeer your vanquished opponent. There are so few victory points available it is extremely possible for the game to result in a draw, last count back is decided by..........player height, that says it all really.
