It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.
Here’s what is new this week:
- Ugly Gryphon Inn: Innployees
- Ugly Gryphon Inn: The Little Beak Inn
Game of the Week: The Ugly Gryphon Inn - On sale for only $1
You own the questionably prestigious Ugly Gryphon Inn, which is the only Inn within a hundred miles. Your patrons are rowdy and rude, but they are the only ones around. Your goal is to fill your inn with enough patrons to keep the debt collectors at bay, but to do so you must manage some painfully particular, peculiar patrons. In the Ugly Gryphon Inn, you’ll be tasked with managing your patrons’ various needs to ensure they all get a good night’s rest. Each turn, you’ll send one drowsy patron up to their room, then check to make sure all your patrons are sleeping soundly. If something’s irking them, they might raise a fuss, so keep an eye on what they need as you go. Afterwards, you’ll usher in more guests and keep an eye on the bar to make sure there’s no trouble. There’s never a moment to rest in The Ugly Gryphon Inn!
This game sounds as clever and fun as it looks. Smallish footprint, small card count, large fun. What more could you ask for? This one has fun theme plastered all over the game as you watch the patrons get plastered and make sure they are pleased. There’s a lot of consideration to be had, as the patrons come with traits and things that irk them. Get the wrong mix in the wrong place, and they might just leave and trigger their effect causing even more chaos and ruining all of your plans. If you haven’t tried this one yet, you’re missing out on a solo gaming gem.
