New to Me – December 2019

Happy New Year!

As we start the new year here at the Cult of the New to Me, we want to look back at the previous month, because looking back is what we do!

That’s right. We never talk about the new to me games that we’re going to play. We always look at what we just did.

Nagaraja is a new 2-player game where both players are exploring their own tomb (I mean two separate tombs, not their own. That would be very existential).

Just double-checked, and these are temples, not tombs. (Editor – Research is a good thing!)

The game is designed by Bruno Cathala and Théo Rivière with artwork by Vincent Dutrait.

And it is a lot of fun.

How does it work?

Let’s take a look.
