Lords & Ladies

I know that I usually talk about indie video games on this blog, but today I thought I’d do something a little different and talk about an indie board game that I have been absolutely loving.

As some of you might be aware, I’ve been helping out in a semi-professional capacity with the marketing and PR of my friend Simon’s game Cashtronauts.
