Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
Play Matt: Miremarsh Review
Miremarsh didn’t land with the swampy splash the designer must have hoped for. It bubbled under a lot of people’s radars and initial reports weren’t positive. So it sat, ignored, on my shelf for weeks before I took a dive into the rulebook. And what I found there was astonishing: a silly, charming push your luck game about driving goblins through a terrifying swamp in the hope of surviving long enough to commit some goblinesque atrocities. It felt like a must-play.

Sorry. If you wonder why I generally post 3*+ reviews it's because I just don't write up games that don't appeal. Life's too short and there are too many games.
I'd do the research, or wait for a FAQ, before investing in this one. Maybe download the rulebook and see if you can find a playthrough to watch - there's a bunch on YouTube. It's fun but it's not for all tastes and it's really unfortunate how it's defeated by it's own rulebook
A FAQ. Yes. I got onto that after the tweet exchange:
We are still discussing where exactly to put it given that Room17s website is down. It is likely to find a home on the BGG files page.
