What is the Stocking Stuffer of the Year? Each year we select a game that meets three criteria:
- It is fun to play
- It has a small package, the better to fit into a stocking
- It costs less than $20
The Stocking Stuffer of the Year in 2014 was Asmodee’s Timeline, a fun game that only costs $14.99 and in which knowledge of history helps but is not necessary. 2015’s choice was Love Letter, a neat little game of bluffing that can play in less than 15 minutes.
What is 2016’s Stocking Stuffer of the Year? Check back here on Monday or listen to Scott on Talk of the Town at 1o a.m. on December 12.
