The third of three quick reviews of recent Mk1 Board Game arrivals - courtesy of Mk1 reviewer @jackatacounter:
K2 Mk1 Price $79.90
You may have noticed that MK1 has a preference for the games it stocks.
The hallowed shelves are happiest when they are bulging with colorful games that wink at the gamers and the soon to be gamers as they walk by and promise fun with every inch of their cheery box lids.
Historic games and games based on less fantastic things seldom make the cut because, in the fierce battle for precious box space, accountants and rules for marching through miles of mud seldom wins the arm wrestle with Space ship rodeos and Dragon Punching Ne'er-do-wells.
But, this game, K2, is the realism representative for board-gaming that gets a free pass to retailsville.
Why? Well the game, somehow manages to be incredibly pretty (no mean feat for a game about climbing a perilous grey and white snow covered peak). But more importantly, this game is really well designed. It's brilliant for the jaded owner of 500 board games and it's brilliant for the newbie buying their very first one.

The games core is all about making tough choices to hold off or spend ever shrinking supplies to forge a path up the slope, but by making it a race to the top, you’re really going to have to think hard and way up if your being left in the dust by the speedier players, or simply waiting to catch up when their reckless ways land them stuck in terrible dangers.
Really all that needs to be said is, this is a game that, by its theme may have kept it off our shelves, (or had us drawing dragons on with crayon.) But by sheer cleverness and brilliant design, we have seen the error of our ways and have welcomed it on board and into the waiting arms of gaming groups and families alike!
