Garrett's Games and Geekiness

Shelley and I finally do some heavy lifting this week, getting Uwe Rosenberg's monster Agricola sequel CAVERNA The Cave Farmers to the table for a couple of plays in a row.  Then we talk about another of these wonderful forthcoming 'gum packet-sized' games from Chris Handy.  This week GEM is on the docket.

Caverna The Cave Farmers by Use Rosenberg and published by Lookout Games.
