Story Board Reviews Flag Dash


Angelus Morningstar from Story Board posted a great blog review of Flag Dash. Check it out! I (Kirk) had the privilege of meeting Angelus at GAMA in March.

Click to read Angelus' review!
Highlights from Angelus:
  • "this is my programmable game of choice"
  • "I also love the characters presented in this game. The artwork is jovial and friendly, but the character identities are charming too. I particularly love that ‘crazy cat lady’ is a viable option, and she is clearly throwing her cats at other players to drive them off as a player power. That is beautifully novel."
  • "[compared with other programmable games] you have a reasonable amount of reflexive adaptability... [that provides] agency over the game as it unfolds."

Man vs Meeple Reviews Flag Dash


Jeremy Salinas & David Waybright posted a terrific review video of Flag Dash today. Consider subscribing to their YouTube channel.

Click image to watch Jeremy & David discuss Flag Dash!
Jeremy: "I love the aspect that there is no luck in this game. It's purely strategic, it's purely tactical. There is a huge amount of strategic choices that you're making on your turn - which card to play, which priority to play it, and which character to activate with those two combination of components."

David: "Lots of extra little layers of strategy there with tokens and special abilities... It's a nice tight, little, quick game... Both the artwork and all of the elements in here are really nicely done."
