Polygon Will Put a Hex on You (Get it?)

When a game bills itself as “The First of its Kind Strategy Game”, it is a pretty bold statement. I mean board games have been around for a couple thousand years at least, so it is hard to imagine a game that hasn’t been t ...

We’ve recently told you about one of our all-time favorite party games, Sequence, when we found its alter-ego, Sequence Dice at our local Goodwill. Here it is a month later and it is still a favorite with the kids, so when Jax (the ma ...
