Every now and then I go through a phase of really liking a mechanism or theme and I buy games that give me that same buzz. For 2018-2019 that was dexterity games. I went from really just owning one, Toc Toc Woodman, to owning loads.

I have a fondness for most of them, but the one that I actually probably have had the most fun with is Rhino Hero
Murder is a foot on the streets of London and the local bill needs your help to square away the crime. Chronicles of Crime is a detective board game set in London with many iconic locations represented on the components. However, the included campaign does take a rather tourist-y view of Britain.
