Este artigo é a versão em inglês da resenha sobre o jogo Wiz-War. Se você se interessa por jogos de tabuleiro eu recomendo ler a resenha em português publicada aqui.
I have always enjoyed playing board games, but like most Brazilians of my age (and those that came before and after us) I grew up with the limited options available here that, generation after generation, populate the game sections of toy stores along puzzles.
If you’re reading this in English you probably had more options than us when it came to board games in your childhood, but here in Brazil our list of board games was limited to The Game of Life, Monopoly, War, Picture This, Combat… and that’s pretty much it. I’m probably forgetting a few games and I’m purposefully leaving a few of the more childish ones out of the list (Pop-Up Pirate and Operation, I’m looking at you) but that list was pretty much what me and every friend of my own age had at home to entertain us when it rained during our holidays and we couldn’t play outside, and that’s why I believe a lot of people of my age have abandoned board games as an entertainment option as playing the same thing over and over again gets old fast.
