The Joy of Unboxing: K2

Of course you may have trouble playing the clarinet for a while

The wintery season continues, as we attempt the ascent of K2. Or just stay at home and unbox it.

The urge to risk one’s life climbing a forbidding and dangerous mountain is one I can understand, even though I can’t imagine the skill and endurance it takes to actually go through with it. Thankfully, boardgames are here to accurately recreate any experience we care to name in cardboard!

And so we unbox K2, a clever little game of mountain-scaling that brings you face-to-face with the dangers of weather, exposure, acclimatisation, or simply tripping and falling to your death. It’s teeth-chatteringly good, and a damn sight safer than the real thing. Rules summary coming soon!
