Last week was an 11th hour vacation ending literally hours before back to school for the kids, this week I’m back on the broom for a review of the GREAT Broom Service over at Miniature Market’s Review Corner. This is an outstanding game (based on the earlier Witches’ Brew, which I never played) with a brilliant action selection/trumping mechanic that requires players to announce whether they are going to be brave or cowardly every turn. The setting is a wonderfully whimsical witchy thing, which I have a terrible weakness for (witness the Kiki’s Delivery Service tattoo) and it turns out that this is a design that strikes an almost perfect medium spot between the classical German-style family games and the more complex modern hobby games. It’s easy and fun, but it bites pretty deep. And it won this year’s Kennerspiel prize at the Spiel Des Jahres, well deserved. Check it out here!
