The SnakesCast

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

  • Guru Voodoo: First Date

    This year's Hallowe'en episode deals with a truly terrifying situation

    We get a lot of people on first dates, both at Snake & Lattes, and at our sister bar, Snakes & Lagers. This presents our game gurus with a special challenge. On the one hand, people on a first date want to talk to each other, so it's no good bringing out a game that will hog all the attention to itself. But on the other hand, a game that recedes into the background is probably kind of boring. What's a guru to do?
