CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends 5-Minute Dungeon.
This is a chaotic, co-operative, real-time card game in which players have only five minutes to escape the randomized dungeon. Communication and teamwork are critical to survival because there’s no time to form a carefully considered plan — and no predicting what dangers lie ahead.
