Hand management games are games with cards in them that reward players for playing the cards in certain sequences or groups. The optimal sequence/grouping may vary, depending on board position, cards held and cards played by opponents. Managing your hand means gaining the most value out of available cards under given circumstances. Cards often have multiple uses in the game, further obfuscating an "optimal" sequence.
Play occurs upon a modular board that is composed of multiple pieces, often tiles or cards. In many games, board placement is randomized, leading to different possibilities for strategy and exploration.Some games in this category have multiple boards which are not used simultaneously, preserving table space. Unused boards remain out of play until they are required.
Simple enough mechanisms without oversimplifying the decisions you can make. Absolutely wonderful Kickstarter production and delightful art/design.
Got this game because the art was cute and gameplay looked simple enough to play with nieces/nephews. It offers a surprising amount of decision making and balance. Even when played with all adults it was still a blast!
Great art and production. Deceptively strategic gameplay with lots of great tactical choices and options. Plays quickly and scales well. Highly recommend!
