In news that will not surprise anyone I am once again reviewing a relatively obscure game from Japan. However, it is not based on anime, does not have an obtuse and impenetrable theme and so is probably quite good and recommendable to people who aren't weird cartoon people. The game is Hanafuda, a traditional card game from the 1800s designed to be intentionally obscure and unusual to get around restrictions on gambling. If you are interested in learning how this game works, there is a cheap and readily-available computer version on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/364930/) which costs a mere £6.99 at the time of this article's publication.

The Witches, a game by Martin Wallace, was published in 2013 so I may be a little late to the party with this review, but I feel like this game is somewhat underrated. As something that I will almost always suggest to play whenever we have a gaming session with 3 or 4 people I wanted to put my thoughts about it down in writing.
