Roll for Crit: Concept – A Game Review


May 29, 2015

When no one was looking, geeks took over the board game industry and made some really cool games that you can play with friends. We’ve touched on this before, and Roll for Crit is looking at games in all their depth and detail, letting us and you know what games are worth playing.

The Good: A fun game for parties and people who are looking for a good time but aren’t really interested in winning, losing, or paying much attention.
