Card drafting games are games in which players pick cards from a limited subset, such as a common pool, to gain some advantage (immediate or longterm) or to assemble hands of cards that are used to meet objectives within the game.
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.
Culled - Second wave; Charity auction Why we culled it: Another of the games released after SBG's acquisition by Kolossal Games, when John stopped using Kickstarter and instead switched to a print-on-demand service. The game comes as a single deck - no rules, no box. I was pretty disappointed with this stark departure from SBG's typical quality that I sent this one on without ever even playing it. It may be great, but I have so many great games already that I didn't feel like putting in the additional work to find/print the rules and design a storage solution. I really hope that was a short phase for SBG.
Definitely don't try it with 2. With 4, I'm sure it would be more interesting, although it's still a basic set collection game and there are better of those out there. The 2 player game is terrible.
