July 2006 Magazine review

GAMES Magazine reviews Tricky Town in its July 2006 issue. The editor-at-large and reviewer, John McCallion begins, “Kudos to KelMar Games for this charming debut. Although the game was conceived to teach kids a lesson about safety, it features a mechanism requiring interesting decisions to be made.”

HOOORAY for Tricky Town

“Congratulations on creating and launching such a charming wee game. We were VERY pleasantly surprised. With so many new games strong on theme and very weak on play value, yours is an immensely gratifying change. We found the movement rule both touching, AND conducive to intricate play. One is left with the idea of safety embedded in one's brain, but it is done SO subtly. It is always a pleasure to find such a splendid little gem from a new AMERICAN company. Lead your offspring to the nearest game store for this light but surprisingly bewitching treat that will keep happy families together!”
