  • Game Spotlight: Cacao

    A new gateway game is born?

    Certain games form part of a kind of ludological canon. Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne... these are games whose name alone keeps them selling well. It's hard for a new game to join that hallowed group. But this week in the game spotlight, we take a close look at a game that seems to have been designed with the express purpose of taking Carcassonne's place in the canon. It's a little game called Cacao.
