Kodama: The Tree Spirits may sound like the latest album from a post-rock band but this is actually a game from board gaming’s own new age artists. Featuring the undeniably quaint theme of growing a tree, Kodama astonishes with its ability to induce in you a zen like calm, even while fighting tooth and nail for the best cards. Come join me in finding fulfilment in the most unlikely of places. Really. It’ll grow on you.
