In this fortnight’s podcast episode of Hot Game Magnet, we do a review of the Kiickstarter Board Game: Beast, our latest favorite game from Kickstarter.

Hidden Movement is one of the most thematic mechanics in board gaming. Essentially, there is just something about sneaking around the game board and springing traps on your opponent that really sucks you into the fantasy world of the board game.

Beast by Studio Midhall is a perfect fit for this mechanic. Basically, I can’t say enough how fun it is to skulk around the shadows of a primordial forest as an immense mythological monster. Indeed, it is very satisfying to see your opponent struggle to figure out your whereabouts before you strike. It is almost as satisfying as when you are playing as a hunter and manage to smite the beast.

In this fortnights board game review, we review our newest favorite board game from Kickstarter: BEAST by Studio Midhall. While getting board games in the post from Kickstarter is super fun, so is playing them. Listen to our podcast review of this really awesome game by clicking the player below.
