Glenn’s Review

Glenn introduces us to the Red Raven game called Above and Below. This 2-4 player game plays in around 60-90 minutes. You can get a copy for around $50. The premise of the game is that you’ve left your ransacked village to try and start a new life and a new village. Once you find the perfect spot, you discover that there are a series of caverns below this land. How many people will you recruit to explore the subterranean underworld for riches and glory or will you continue to build your new village? To win, you’ll need to find the perfect balance of the two.
