The SnakesCast

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

  • I Don't Want to Think

    The words that strike fear into the heart of every game guru

    Tabletop games have a reputation for being an intellectual pursuit, with good reason. They're the only art form that cannot exist unless its audience participates, and that means thinking. But sometimes that's not what you're in the mood for. Sometimes you just want to relax and not have to think. Are you better off just watching TV or reading a book? Or are there games that can be enjoyable even for people who aren't interested in using their brains at the moment?
