Pops & Bejou an Interview

Jake, the nickname-less portion of  Pops & Bejou Games reached out recently promoting their soon to launch Kickstarter for their first game CULTivate. A quick look at the box art had me hooked enough to dive a bit deeper. I spent some time going over the rules and watching their How to Play video and found what seems a promising light puzzler with a pile of charm. I look forward to following along with the Kickstarter and giving the game a try when I can.
