CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends 7 Wonders Duel.
This is the two player version of the very popular game 7 Wonders. What’s different about this game is the players not drafting cards simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round. A player can take a card only if it’s not covered by any others, so timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately. As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for coins, or used to construct a wonder. Players race to build wonders of the world and create the most thriving civilization. A deep but quick two player game that’s easy to recommend!
