Spellwood knows what it is. Laying down letters of varying values, on an equal sided board to gain higher scores than your opponent isn’t anything new. In fact, the height of developer Three Rings’ ambition plateaus with the inclusion of cutesy, wand-throttling fauna to place the pieces. It’s a well-established format, then, and not a terribly exciting one. But it’s in its execution that Spellwood finds its place.
