Fragor Games, of brothers Gordon and Fraser Lamont, takes the unique strategy of producing only one new game each year, and that in very limited quantities. I don’t know if this approach has been a commercial success for them, but the quality of their games has certainly earned them some enthusiastic fans. This year’s Essen release was Snow Tails, a dog sled racing game. What sets it apart from other racing games is the need to balance the numbers on two played cards, because while the numbers played determine how fast the sled moves forward, the difference between the two cards determines how far the sled slides uncontrolled. Snow Tails also comes with 16 sections to assemble different tracks, as well as miniature tree pieces to act as obstacles in the race.
