A beautiful small filler game with a lot of colorful cards in it! It’s the first game I received from an editor for testing. I warned him that I will only do this review if I liked the game. I will always remain honest, that’s my credo :). So, as you can see, I have done the review. Because I like Zura !
I really love the general design of Zura. The Artist Pedro Codeço has done a superb artwork. It’s exactly the type of graphic I like: very colorful, very creative, not too childish. The theme is original but unfortunately too complex for a small game and finally completely pasted on. However it doesn’t matter at all, and the cards are so pretty that it’s a real pleasure to play. Production is neat and very pleasant to touch.
Zura is a clever mix of memory and set collection mechanics. Halfway between « Ticket to Ride » and « Robin Wood ». Each turn the more Travel-cards of the same type you play from your hand, the more Tzerzurian -cards you can look at (an collect if the color matches) on the search area. Your goal is to collect the more Tzertzurian cards as possible. It’s really a perfect game with children of every age, and it has been a very big success during the holiday with my nefews. Of course it’s not the kind of game I will play with my core-gamers friends, but It’s short and fun enough to be played with children and non gamers. A very good job!
I was searching for that kind of game. The kind I’m happy to play with children without suffering ;). Quick to learn and teach, fast to play, gorgeous to look at. BRAVO @agiegames ! 👍

Zura est un mélange très malin de Memory et collection de cartes (comme dans les aventuriers du rails). Il a extrêmement bien marché avec mes neveux (8-13). j’ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à jouer avec eux. .

🔶 CRYPTID 🔷
An abstract/deduction game with a lot of small wooden components in it ! Kind of a crush for me.
Yep, I know, except for the box cover the game looks like an unfinished prototype. But it doesn’t bother me. In fact, I kinda like it. It’s elegant, colorful and appealing (Love the cover illustration @kwanchaimoriya !). The production is neat, and the rules are clear. A good job overall. @ospreygames
It’s a great and pure deduction game. One of the cleanest design I've seen out there. And I love that ! Everyone is trying to find the hidden monster and has one clue at the begining. Players must deduce the other player’s clues and what the other players know while obscuring their own clue. The game keeps you very involved the whole time as you have to analyse everyone else's moves. Cryptid is one of those games you can explain in under 5 minutes but will play for an hour. Easy to learn, teach, play, but hard to master. With ever changing terrain combination and clues, the replayability is endless.
A must have if you like deduction. This game is a blast and demands to be played over and over again.🤩

Pour moi cryptid aurait du devenir un classique. Avec son design et sa mécanique de jeu épuré, il est instantanément devenu un coup de coeur. Le genre de jeu qui s’apprend vite et se maîtrise avec le temps. Une petite bombe ludique pour qui aime les jeux de deduction. .

Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.
There are two types of cards - treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players 'kicks down the door' - drawing an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in "bad stuff" which usually involves losing levels and treasure.
