Reading Rulebooks

S2E1: Reading Rulebooks – Calico

Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.

Check out the Game section of MCG for more episodes of the Reading Rulebooks Podcast or check out the MCG YouTube Channel for Videos!

This week we are going to cover the rules for Calico. Calico is a game designed by Kevin Russ and illustrated by Beth Sobel. The game is published by Flatout Games.
