CUDO Plays Recommends

This week we are recommending the game, Cheaty Mages!

The card game Cheaty Mages puts you in the role of a wizard who has come to watch and bet on monsters fighting in an arena. Of course, you have all of your spells to help the monsters you’ve bet on win (or harm the monsters fighting against yours) – but then again, so do all of the other players, too! What’s more, judges line the arena during combat and if players push things too far with their cheating spells, a judge might intervene and dispel – or even eject – the fighter! It’s a fun little betting and take-that card game for 3-6 players that plays in about 30 minutes.
