Welcome to Flavor Text

We're here to talk about Games and the people who play them, their relevance in our culture, and how they bring us together.

We hope you’ll stay a while…

We love games. We hope you do too. Flavor Text isn’t just about saying if we thought a game was ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or if it’s worth your time. Instead Flavor Text is about how that time is spent and what it means, how games will continue to impact our lives in the future, and the different ways in which a board game can connect people and define relationships.
