"Vasty Wilds is a supremely fun, modular exploration game that has some of the best pawns/meeples I’ve ever seen. The artwork and imagination really push the game over the top and make Vasty Wilds an instant buy. I think Vasty Wilds will appeal to a wide range of gamers, from casual to hobbyist."
"A creative little map-building race game; the artwork is fantastic and as I said, every game you play is going to be different, 1. because of how you're going to build the map and 2. because of the amount of cards. I liked it, and I hope you get a chance to check it out."

"One of the things I really love about this game is that it has that double-edged sword, so there is always something good that's going to happen every turn, and something bad that's going to happen every turn. I think this game is fantastic for families."
"At this point in time (and maybe over 200 posts later) I’ve come to appreciate the effort that goes into custom work. This could translate to cards, mechanics, meeples, or game play. Every once and a while I run into some really innovative ideas turned board game and just 'wow' at the opportunity to witness this."
