I love a great pocket-sized game. Compact physical objects that we get to share for a moment with friends. Sea Salt and Paper looks like my kind of game – beautiful design, 30 minutes, Bruno Cathala, pocket sized. And a beautiful Oragami done in a nautical theme. In this game you collect sets, get points, and then bet and bluff with your opponents during the “last chance” call. It’s a quick combination of actions that made for fun online play on Board Game Arena. I am now excited to find a physical copy and try with friends.
Sea Salt and Paper
A few delicately folded papers and a whole marine universe comes to life. Create your own ocean. Assemble your hand, place cards for their effect and decide if you want to end the round. But you have to choose: stop the round immediately or give the others an extra turn to try to widen the gap. Is it worth taking the risk?
During their turn, you assemble your hand, maybe place cards for their effect, and decide if you want to end the round. But do you think you are the one with the most points in hand? You will have to choose: stop the round immediately or give the others an extra turn to try to extend the gap? Is it worth taking the risk?
