24 | Arboretum (A Soothing Path of Tension)

The thing about Arboretum is that everyone seems to like it. We have friends who would rather walk across hot coals than play a Splotter game who rave about it. We’ve also received recommendations for Arboretum from some of our heaviest gaming partners. On top of this, the fact that it’s a small box card game that plays well with two, we had to check it out. Oh, and we love trees! Join us on our stroll through the tree-lined paths of Arboretum.

Also this week, we sample and enjoy the Cashmere Red Blend from Cline Cellars.
