Re: Best games no one really talks about?

I bought Overboard! on the Switch yesterday, and itís pretty addictive. The premise is that youíre on a cross-continental cruise circa 1935, and youíve thrown your husband overboard to his death. The goal is to evade suspicion and collect on his life insurance policy, so you have to forge alliances with some passengers and scheme against others. Itís surprisingly replayable since the game wants you to learn from your mistakes. My wife ticked all the checkboxes on her third run only to find an unexpected twist at the very, very end.

Iím not sure what to suggest for games Iíve been playing myself, although maybe my perception is skewed and titles I think of as pretty obvious are actually deep cuts.

That does indeed sound like a different concept for a game.

Here's a awesome simple yet addictive game from several years ago that no one really talks about.

Plants vs. Zombies

So addicting and so well balanced. I recently started revisiting it on iOS and it still holds up really well.

Thanks for the tip. It was fun and I'm glad I never tried to murder my wife since I ended up in the clink. Although one might have to be of a certain age to appreciate it.
