Game of the Month: Campy Creatures (October 2022)

It is spooky time and while not all games will scare you, the theming is where I like to look to from monsters roaming/chasing to the fun camp. That’s where this one comes in, I love its camp and gameplay; it makes it that much easier to get it to the table.
