IELLO is bringing out a new board game by the name of “Cheese Master” which will rely on a dexterity mechanic for a more satisfying gameplay experience across the board. Illustrated by Biboun, the game has its main setting in a kitchen just a moment before all hell breaks loose. 

Beware of the Dog, the Cat, and the Mice! 

Players for their part will be rolling dice as they try to figure out how much cheese is left on the floor that rodents were trying to steal before the cat leapt onto its feet and chased them away. Each die will have either animal faces or cheese pieces and you will follow the rules to try and navigate the chaos left by the recent escapade by rodents and the cat, and.. the dog!

The game can be a bit of a puzzler with the piece of cheese suddenly being eaten by the rodents as a dog has appeared to chase the chat, who is now running to save its own skin! With each roll of the die, you will have to calculate how many pieces of cheese are left by doing the maths yourself and cramming the numbers. 

Are there too many mice left? If the cat is still visible but there is no dog, how many rodents will fail to snack on the delectable diary? There is just so much going on that you will have to catch in a glance and yell the answer before your opponents do. But get it wrong and you will sit there looking the fool.

The game is designed by Johan Benvenuto and Alexandre Droit and is a great party experience. It’s fit for 2-8 players and plays in 10-20 minutes with players who are aged 8+. The quality of the components and art seem to be outstanding, and you will have a nice little gem on your hands to bring to your table as a great party or filler experience.
