Game master welcoming, adapting to the level, disclosing clues only when really necessary. Sala: Fun and not spooky (good for any age), and not entirely linear, which allows teams to spread and cooperate when needed. Good theme and storyline with original mechanisms. Only with darker...More

traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
