Side by Side is a video series on local multiplayer games. This is the tenth episode of the fifth series.

This week, Joel Goodwin of Electron Dance and Gregg Burnell of Tap-Repeatedly take on their first digital board game, Daka Dara by Chris Fibsch, based on an old West African game called Dara. There are two phases to the game. In the first phase, known as the drop phase, players put out their counters one at a time in turn, preparing the ground for the second phase. The second phase is referred to as the “move phase” which is far too genteel a name. Joel prefers to call it COUNTER CARNAGE. Because it’s all about COUNTER DESTRUCTION.

An interesting curio with music that wants to make you rip your ears off with a pair of pliars, it delivered a comedy Side by Side moment which never fails to bring Joel to tears. Although he does have to tell people which bit he finds hilarious.
