What’s that? A new episode of Board Game Royale, our bite-sized review podast? Don’t mind if I do.

The name’s Beard. Marcus Beard. I like my mechanics simple and my rules to fit on a single side of A5. I’m not a spy – or a master tactician – but if I spend long enough playing these two games, I might be one step closer.

Hiding out in the mountains, Spyfall gives a taste of location-hopping while keeping a low profile. Captain Sonar, on the other hand, is a loud, explosive take on sub-aquatic warfare.
