Vespaw

2-4 Players, 30 min/player, ages 12+

Vespaw is a route building delivery game with lots of components, actions, upgrades, and asymmetric abilities. However, every ability, upgrade, action, and component exists to make the central action of the game, picking up and delivering packages, even more fun. This action becomes a challenging and rewarding puzzle to solve as more and more packages are placed on the board.

The most unusual component in the game is a dog named Buttercup. Buttercup takes turns along with everyone else using her own deck of cards. Buttercup is the link between you and the other players. During her phase, she will pick up or deliver a package for you. This package matters because, if chosen correctly, it may result in Buttercup teaching you a powerful New Trick that you may use for the rest of the game. The key in choosing which package she should pick up or deliver for you is realizing that this package does not need to be your own. In this way, Buttercup creates mutually beneficial opportunities that reward all players involved.

Look for ways to maximize your interactions with Buttercup and you may find yourself a new best friend. Woof!
