Apply drafting to a logical and spatial puzzle: Draftosaurus Review

Draftosaurus is a quick and light drafting game in which you don’t have a hand of cards that you pass around (after selecting one), but a bunch of dino meeples in the palm of your hand.

Draftosaurus does something I really like, it takes a mechanism that is often the sole driving force of a game and then applies it to a bigger picture. Take drafting and then apply the drafting to a logical and spatial puzzle.

Terrible name aside this is a fantastic game to introduce new gamers and kids to the mechanism of drafting while having enough strategy to have a gamer be interested with it as a filler. As an experienced gamer, this is nothing mind-blowing but it is a much-appreciated game I can bust out for newbies. In my opinion, this wipes out Sushi Go; it is not drafting purely for the sake of drafting.

Also, bonus points for a double-sided board and dinosaur meeples. This game looks fantastic on the table.

    One of our favourites for a quick light game and drafting physical pieces is such a nice touch.
