Reviews let makers know how much you love their products, and encourage potential customers to give new things a shot. Every Tuesday I leave a few reviews on the applicable store, and encourage you to do the same.
Today’s picks are:
- Bang! (4th Edition) (Amazon) The original Spaghetti Western shoot-em up card game. While you can play it with four players, I find it’s best with five or more so the Deputy gets involved.
- Bang! The Walking Dead (Amazon) A very clever re-skin of Bang! using the characters from The Walking Dead series. In many ways, it’s easier to understand, both because the Italian is removed and some of the nomenclature is more straightforward (e.g. axes have a range of one, first aid kits heal one life, etc.). It’s not gruesome. I won’t let my 10-year-old watch the series, but I’d be fine with her playing this game.
- Food52 Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook (Amazon) A friend recommended this book — in particular, two unusual recipes for scrambled eggs. I found the whole thing great, with lively instructions and terrific photography. It’s the kind of cookbook you flip through on the couch, marking things you want to try.
Podcasts are especially review-dependent, because they signal to the powers at iTunes to feature certain shows. A review for Scriptnotes would be much-appreciated.
