Audience reviews for 2018:

"It’s funny, light hearted and energetic, with a few gentle innuendos. Good for boardgame nerds but also super accessible for non-gamers"

"It was Brilliant. We laughed from the opening sentence to the end."

"This was one of the best shows we saw at the Fringe. We laughed the whole way through, can definitely recommend."
