The SnakesCast

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

  • You're Fired!

    Games that can't cut the mustard any more

    The ethos of Snakes and Lattes has a few clear rules. One of them is this: every game is loved by some players and hated by others, so there's no point in saying one game is better than another. But here's the thing: sometimes a game comes along that sets out to do the exact same thing as another game, targeted to the same audience, appealing to the same tastes, but somehow does it better. The old game is fired!
