Dicebreaker Recommends: Fog of Love, a board game about roleplaying relationships that’s all heart

Dicebreaker Recommends is a series of monthly board game, RPG and other tabletop recommendations from our friends at our sibling site, Dicebreaker.

If you’re of a certain age, you might remember filling out online compatibility tests as a lovestruck teen. You know, the sorts of viral “tag three friends” Myspace posts and Buzzfeed quizzes that would tell you whether you and your beloved were made to be based on your favourite film, which side of the bed you sleep and whether you put cream then jam or vice-versa. (The only correct answer is jam then cream, of course, but that’s an argument for another time.)

Fog of Love is a board game that wraps the central “Are we meant to be?” question of those compatibility tests’ in an affecting experience that’s part roleplaying game, part Werewolf-esque hidden role game and part min-maxing resource-management puzzle. But while individual parts can be compared to other games, Fog of Love is an experience quite unlike anything else on the tabletop.
