[Darwinnning!] "
We are happy you liked the game. And you are indeed right the card are undertaking modifications. Their look and feel remains the same, but we are listening to the feedback and try to make them more intuitive, and of course the paper quality of the printed cards should be different in the end."  David Hledky
[King's Forge]

[Monkey Temple] "I would like to thank you personally for the nice review you did of our game Monkey Temple"
