Bite-sized bits about board games from the game gurus at Snakes and Lattes

  • Absolute Beginners

    What can you recommend for a blank slate?

    One of the most challenging and enjoyable tasks for a game guru is recommending games to suit someone's taste. Everyone has different preferences, and based on what they tell, a skilled guru can find just the right game. But what's a guru to do when they can't tell you a single thing about what they like or don't like in a game? This week we tackle the question of how to recommend a game to someone who has no idea where to begin.
