Our love for the gut-wrenching Frostpunk knows no bounds, which is why we said yes to being able to review its IRL board game incarnation by way of the successfully Kickstarted Frostpunk: The Board Game. And boy can we tell you, the translation of Frostpunk's immeasurably daunting world shine through here in spades.

Here's a snippet:
Frostpunk: The Board Game is designed for 1-4 players, but you all face off against the world itself, and the cruels it delivers. That the game can be played solo is a triumph for it overall, but you probably want to rope some friends in to help delegate some of that emotional weight we’ve been peppering throughout. You all play as advisors, dishing up decisive action for both survival and happiness, but the two aren’t mutually exclusive. Set within these basic concepts is far more nuance; denizens are never happy, and you won’t always make the right decision. And decisions can sometimes lead to death, or starvation, or sickness and more.

It’s all very grim...
