It is no secret that I am a fan of narrative driven games, so it is interesting to see how different board game designers approach this topic. Robit Riddle is a mystery/adventure game I first saw at Origins, had a successful Kickstarter, and now will be at PAX Unplugged as their production phase comes to an end. So it is right around a corner.
I hope to get more information on the game at PAX Unplugged so if you have any questions, leave them in the comments below.
