So started the search for an alternative. And now, here...

Two weeks ago, under the bright lights and loud voices of the social club where the gamers gather, we learned Welcome To. Surprisingly, given the catwalk vogue accorded to roll and write games, it was the first I'd played since Yahtzee. But my eldest daughter and I enjoyed it, although we guessed it would be a bit much for the rest of the family.

Matt, please, keep writing these. It's a great format for reading about games. They are enjoyable to read, but they also impart so much information about what you've played in the narrative.

Excellent review, for a game that my wife might actually enjoy playing. She's a quilter and has an eye on color and form at all times in all things, and the idea of putting Patchwork on the table in front of her was absurd. But this one might just clear the hurdle.

I'll be honest, I'm more interested in hearing about the feel of games than I am the mechanical aspects, though some effort needs to be put to the latter. This kind of review is invaluable to me, and I hope I'm hitting a similar balance in my more recent stuff.

But dude -- photos. Drop a couple of impromptu snaps from your phone in order to give us a peek at how it plays on the table. Would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the review. I added this to the list for games to play on Christmas eve with the kids. From your review it looks like something the whole family could play and enjoy. And we have colored pencils aplenty.

I second Sagrilarus suggestion of more photos.
