Vlog Ep. 294: Developing With The River

This Game Day Monday #BaduyPride discussion is all about The River, a 2-4 player board Sébastien Pauchon and Ismaël Perrin, and published by Days of Wonder. This is a game that involves both tile and worker placement but combines the two game mechanics in a way that results in a game with only moderate difficulty. And that's a gift in itself.

The River fills that niche of moderate games that could lead to more complex ones. It's not entirely gateway, but it's something quick that you can bring in between other games and still have time to teach it and play it a few times. The core mechanics are some pretty popular ones used in different games and you can totally help newer players discover more games of interest based on how they respond to this game.

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
