Let's face it, camels are ugly, very ugly. Yet, their very ugliness renders them rather cute and game makers have often remembered this and included their images in games. The Camel (genus Camelus) is known as 'The Ship of the Desert', not because it's humps are full of water but because their body...
I hope you all have recovered after indulging in Christmas and New Year. Here at Chez-Osten, all is well.

Stefan Feld is the highest rated designer of games in recent years. The adjective 'Feldian' has come into popular use when describing a game that has various ways of earning victory points but also includes some luck element. We are under the Feldian spell ourselves because we like light to medium...
