Games to Give and Get, Holiday 2012 Edition

“… I come to every social engagement armed with board games, to help facilitate that whole human interaction thing that people thought was important before smartphones gave us an excuse to avoid eye contact with others. It’s also why I give games as gifts.”
— Over on The Morning News, Matthew “Good Gift Game Guide Guy” Baldwin rounds up his favorite games of the year, board- and non, with brief explanations of how they work, who they’re good for, and the time they take to play. There’s one that seems to be an Apples to Apples “for horrible people,” as well as an oddly Tarot-looking one about mushrooms. Since we’re here, shoutout to Yahtzee.
