CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends The Big Book of Madness.
In this cooperative deck-building game, players are all students at a school for wizards. In typical wizarding school student fashion, you have opened up a book you were not supposed to an unleashed a host of terrifying monsters. You must work together and think strategically in order to defeat the monsters and their curses, and close the big book of madness!
