Stitches is a take that-style card game where you build monsters to defeat other monsters. However, this comes with more elements that will offer a more immersive gameplay while being

quick and fun! You start off the game as a Frankenstein creature looking for upgrades. You can scavenge for parts or spar other players to steal their parts. Battles are decided by a rockpaper-

scissors mechanic that is quite clever.

As you play this game, you cannot speak, only grunt or groan. But as you attack other players, you collect words that become your vocabulary. If you and another player

share the same word, you can then work together to defeat the Abomination, who is also collecting parts to defeat you. While it seems silly to attack other players only to then attack the

boss, it’s actually quite necessary if you plan on winning the game, and combine that with a limited vocabulary and you got yourself a fun, silly monster building card game with some depth.

If you like silly, take that-style card games with some depth to it, put your money towards Stitches: it’s light, but it brings a bit of complexity that makes it more engaging.

The game is for 3-7 players, takes about 20-30 mins to play, and is great for families!
