I stumble across games in many ways. Mostly via the Internet or someone sending a game to Boardgame Corner for review.
However, for this month’s game of the month, it came as a direct recommendation from a friend. Ben and I met over Twitter and then realized we lived in the same city. He told me he had a new game to introduce me to, and that game was…
Ben had recently seen Tim Fowers, the designer of the game, and was able to pick up an early copy before it was released. He told me I could borrow it if I wanted to play/review the game. And, oh man, I’m so glad I did!
At the time, I didn’t know much about this game at all. I remembered seeing it on Kickstarter a while back, but other than recognizing some graphics, I didn’t really know much about the game.
Turns out, it’s a co-op game (cooperative play – everyone working together, rather than against each other), which is one of my most favorite styles of games.
In this game, you and your friends play as an elite team of robbers. You need to find and crack a safe on all three floors a high rise and then make it to the roof to escape. There are plenty of traps and a security guard on every floor.
Check out my pick along with eight others:
PS: Do you have a favorite game from the month of December? Leave a note in the comments letting me know which game you’d pick and why.
