Review: Sagrada, a top dice-drafting board game, goes digital

Sagrada is one of the best dice-drafting games on the market. It makes excellent use of the inherent randomness of dice while still providing copious opportunities for strategic thinking and long-term planning.

The Best Auto Rifles in Destiny 2 that You Should be Using
