Blood, sweat & gears. We clock in and review Kanban and Factory Fun, two very challenging but very different games built around an industrial theme. Kanban is a many-layered simulation of a Japanese auto factory. Factory fun is an abstract puzzle where players are rewarded for making crazy, convoluted machines. 

We also learn about Knock Down Barns from designer Greg Burhop. This game is made from reclaimed barn wood and involves building and destroying barns with tiny foam marshmallows.
