Episode 356: Similo
Release Date: August 24, 2020
Running Time: 109 min.
Similo is a cooperative game of characters, communication, and deduction. Can you guide your team to the secret character in a grid of cards using only other character cards as clues? A vertical clue means the card is similar to the secret character. A horizontal clue means the card is different. Each round the pressure mounts, because the team has to remove more cards from the grid!
Similo comes in three flavors. You can play with people from history, myth, and storybook legend. If you're up for a real challenge, you can even combine decks!
Similo is a springboard into the minds of everyone at the table. It provides a puzzle and laughs in equal measure. That's a sure sign of Major Fun.
