Mandala Stones Review

Big chunky pieces of wood and plastic clacking together, no complicated rules, and an innate human fascination with playing with things. Abstracts are great. Mandala Stones is the latest such game from Board&Dice, and it’s a beautiful boxful of pink, yellow, blue and purple discs.
