They are both games that use the cards as tiles, both limited to 250 copies, and both being released on 1/2/18. That's pretty much where the similarities end, so let's look at each game individually.  But first!

Posted by Mike Mullins on

We're back for another Game of the Week special. Wait, where were we last week?... Oh yeah! Launching our latest Kickstarter campaign! We have three very different games available: Hero Tec, Kintsugi, and In Vino Morte. The campaign ends Saturday, and we'd love your support.

Deep in the Pocket Universe, the...
