Unlike any game that we’ve played before, Tobago incorporates a location-deduction mechanic that requires each player to lay a series of cards in order to isolate where a given treasure is NOT. Now you may be asking yourself, “how is that useful?” Well… as my primary school math teacher would say while in between swigs of brandy from his flask (true story), “finding where something is not, allows you to deduce where something is!” As much as I may disagreed with the fellows methods, his tutelage would better prepare me for hours of alcohol induced fun with this week’s game.

Production Notes: We had a few beers during this shoot – yeah I didn’t lie. Instead of making us more talkative, the alcohol seems to have made us a bit tired. We promise to be more peppy during our next review!
