I can’t wait to continue adventuring towards the promise of “something shiny” this April when the game launches on Kickstarter.

Yes Ravensburger!

#YESRAVENSBURGER One of the things I love about the board game hobby is the community. How so many of the publishers and people that make the hobby tick are just regular people.
