Boardgames in the News: Doing the Echidna Shuffle

For our group, 2018 was the Year of the Echidna.  At UK Games Expo that year, some of the group were introduced to a fantastic game called Echidna Shuffle.  We played the spots off that copy and come Essen in October, another half a dozen Echidnas smuggled their way back to Oxfordshire.

The heart of game features insects hitching rides on gorgeous plastic echidnas that players move around the wood in a sort of conga, following each other.  It turns out that these fabulous prickly critters do this soft-shoe shuffle in real life on Kangaroo Island
