Episode 312: Piepmatz
Release Date: Feb. 18, 2019
Running Time: 74 min.
A flock of little songbirds gather at the feeder to eat. One by one, different birds hop on the perch and carry away their meals, large and small. Can you gather the best collection of bird and seed cards as the feeder empties while avoiding greedy squirrels and angry crows?
Piepmatz is a beautiful and beautifully simple card game for players of all ages. It's easy to learn but provides an enjoyable, ever-changing puzzle to sort out each turn.
It takes creative vision to find a game in something so seemingly ordinary. That vision is a sure path to Major Fun.
Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
