With few board games hitting the table this week, Matt, Lolies and Meehan veer into important debates about the other things you find on a table. Namely, our definitive opinions on the kiwi knife-spoon, the spork and our own creation, the spife - or should that be knoon?

Back on the topic of tabletop, we take a look at The One Ring’s new Kickstarter record, get stuck into sewing-powered RPG A Mending, Vivid-ly discuss the next game from the makers of Sagrada and consider why upcoming Unmatched character Shakespeare is underrated.

All this, plus recommendations for the best mystery board games and redemption for the most overlooked character classes in tabletop RPGs.
