New to Us Games – March 2018

Not a ton of new games this month. New board games, from best to worse: Barenpark – I immensely enjoyed this Tetris-style tile laying game, even with the flimsy theme of building a bear-only zoo.

It’s that time of year again! The new Madden comes out. Some people scoff at buying the same game every year but shut up, I have fun! This year I am picking it up for XBox One, so we’ll see how that works out. As has been the case for a number of years, I’m […]
