Cardboard Corner

In light of personal interest, culture shifts, the human condition, blah blah, Speculiction has given birth to a new area in which to contribute to the exorbitance (aka terabytes) of predominantly useless content flooding the internet.  Yes, another board game review page.  For now, here are the games reviewed to date in alphabetical order, followed by game type (cooperative, strategy, family, etc.).

  2. p.s. In the introductory paragraph of Cardboard Corner, it's says "Speculiction has given birth to a new area in which to contribute to the dearth (aka terabytes) of predominantly useless content flooding the internet. "Dearth" means a lack or absence of something, not an abundance. :^)
