Briefest Write-Ups in history begin anew!!

OK folks… it’s not the holidays… but things have maintained a frenetic pace… and I have not finished building my time machine… and well… poetic ramblings? Literary prose? Is there enough time, darn it?!?

Sadly.. not just yet. But someday…


Alban Viard makes some wonderful games! And I have to have them ALL!

Yeah… I copied that from my brief “Ra” write up… again… 🙄

OK. Time is short. Let’s do this! This Upstart bundle includes the Deluxe Edition of Small City as well as the Deluxe Edition of the Winter Expansion (Including the new 2-sided River Boards). Also, for some reason I seem to want to call the “Winter” expansion the “Wintertime” expansion… Is anyone else having that issue? Haha… I know… I’m an odd bird! 🐣

Anywho.. the price is right and the game is sweet. Hit it!

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy bits!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Kickstarter campaign… so you can see for yourself how sweet this one is! 😉 The original campaign can be found HERE.

Again… sooo sorry, everyone! I’ll get back in the swing at some point… argh! 🥹
