Binge on this satirical card game about running your own TV station

Formal Ferret | £49.99 | Drafting | 1-5 players | 60-90 minutes | Age: 13+ | networksgame.tv

When Netflix finally kills television, it’ll be the feeling of discovery that we’ll perhaps miss most: that exciting moment during channel-surfing when something unexpected flashes up, managing to somehow hold your attention for the next half-hour or so. Or maybe the real loss will be the comforting monotony of trash TV: the home video clip shows, absurd game shows and top 100 countdowns that raise groans for a few minutes before sucking you into their mundane drama and paddedout exposition. The Networks respects the dificulty involved in holding the attention of millions as much as it mocks what those millions find so engrossing, and it makes for a card game worth breaking out instead of watching Cats Lick The Funniest Things again.
