About this deal

Our ultimate guide to board game cafes has everything you need to know about what a board game cafe is, or how to find one in your area! Though the rules do not require it, we’ve enjoyed laying out the ten possibilities and drafting the collection for the game so that everyone can hold out hope that they’ll work with their favorite tree. Even if you do manage to play cards in your tableau and keep the highest value card possible in your hand (which would be an eight), you could still be thwarted!

The game itself is simple enough to explain in 5 minutes, but difficult enough that it brings out a real ruthless streak in them. When I wasn’t feeling like I was punching the love of my life in the stomach every turn, I enjoyed the distinct decisions the game forced me to make, and the tension that came with it.

The only place that I would have wished for something different in the graphic design is the score sheet.

I get why box sizes are picked and how they influence sales (and the need to have a larger box for a larger scorepad is … a fine counterpoint), but I’d love a Travel Size Arboretum, even if it had tiny cards or something. David Norris on Air Land and Sea expands its battle lines with Spies, Lies and Supplies – Review Great to hear, I'm a big fan as well.You want to do all things, but you can't, and you always have to decide what's the best path (pun intended) to choose. But if it's "high card", then making runs but being scooped by a single "ace"-equivalent seems like a horrible way to score a game. Which brings us to Arboretum, a new game from Z-Man Games that gives you a little taste of spring in a box – and it’s pollen free! But as the endgame approached, just as I prepared to celebrate my efforts, this botanical puzzle revealed its true plot and laid bare its most unfriendly secrets.
