I spent a few minutes making a track for Trials Fusion on the Xbox One. It’s a fun game that I never thought I would like… and I have loved playing it for years. The video is not me playing the game. This is a far better player…

My daughter and I have played 7 Wonders Duel twice. That’s enough to give a basic review of the game. It is certainly not enough to describe a good strategy. 7 Wonders Duel is a two player version of the 7 Wonders game. This game seems to have…
