Last weekend, CUDO Plays held its Grand Exhibition for Season 3, allowing the public to play all the games that had entered the final judging, and awarding honors (and prizes) in eight categories.
Presented by local design team, Grizzly Forged, Sabotile is the winner of three awards from CUDO Plays Season 2, and having played it several times, in several variations (including the one in which I beat Josh Cooper of Volition), I can tell you that it is very fun and very replayable. The basic concept is a mix of a tile-laying game and capture-the-flag, so while it is always different, I find the major variable is who you play it with. Whether your group is polite or competitive, the game itself can also sabotage you. With setup being part of the play, it's very easy to jump in, but a good read of the rules can reveal some finer strategic points. Watch two of the designers play through, below. Then go give them some dollas!
