In board gaming circles, point salad refers to a game where almost every available action will score you some amount of points.

Mystic Vale is now available as in digital format. Read on to see if the app is as good as the physical game and what it does better or worse. Mystic Vale App Description: I recently reviewed Mystic Vale and after trying out the app I wanted to review it. If you have not tried the physical version of the game you can read my review and overview here. It will help you get a basic understanding of the rules and gameplay. The app helps with some of the accounting and things you need to remember in the game. For starters, it tracks the number of Spoils you have flipped. It also makes sure you get that extra mana when you bust and calculate any bonuses you have from vale cards. Lastly it ensures you accurately count your VPs. The digital makes building your cards easy too. You simply drag advancement cards you want to buy that fit into a card’s slot. You can click on cards to zoom in and see them better. The AI has five different levels of difficulty and you can play with up to four players. If you prefer hu

My Villagers Kickstarter pledge arrived the other day, I must say I'm pretty impressed.Everything fits nicely in the box, although it seems half empty I realised the space is for those who got the wooden coins, so it's nice that it should all fit in the main box! Contents:Coins - plenty of card coins to punch, nice and thick and they feel good quality. Good job there's that spare section of box to store them in.Rules - nicely illustrated but look more complicated than it turns out they are!Cards - The cards are nicely illustrated and I like that there are dividers to help organise them, clear icons as to what goes where, and hint cards with reminders of what can be done in each phase.Kickstarter expansions - a mysterious box!The KS box contains a wooden First Player token (to replace/supplement the card in the main deck) and cards, tokens, and dividers for four expansions. I'm leaving them boxed until I get the main game learnt, but it looks again like they fit in the main box with the other
Stats: No. of players: 2-4 Amount of time to play: 45-60 min Age requirements: 14+ Set-up time: minimal Mystic Vale is a card construction game.

It has 3 cards that get you one mana, 9 cards with spoils and 8 blank cards. There are 9 advancement cards and 6 vale cards in the market to purchase.

If the revealed card doesn’t have a Spoil symbol you can keep pressing your luck. When you spoil flip your mana token t
