Look, digital gaming is great and all, but there are some games that either don’t lend themselves well to the format, or aren’t available. Whatever the reason, there are lots of games that we’re itching to play once the world returns to normal. It’s a top five countdown! Before we start scratching, we talk about Exit: The Game – Sunken Treasure, Pandemic: Rapid Response, and Stockpile.

It’s time for another “What we love, what we hate”, and this time we’re looking at deck builders! Its been twelve years since Dominion blew things up, and since then you don’t have to look very far to see a game that uses the mechanic. We look at the highs and lows of deck building as a mechanic, and discuss some of our favourite games that use it. We also talk about Bruxelles 1897, Elysium, and Can’t Stop.
We’re reflecting on the past this episode, looking back at the things we said – never wise, by the way. The games of 2019 had a lot of promise, but how young and dumb they seem to our aged eyes. Where are they now? Join us as we cast our minds back to last decade, to reflect on the games we were excited for so many months ago.
No, not that game. We’re talking about the life cycles of games, how we acquire them, how we end up moving on from them. Where do we generally get our games from, and how do we typically get rid of them? Things get a little bit existential before the end. Before we, blinking, step into the sun, we also talk about Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne, 18Lilliput, and Tonari.
Kellen graces us with his absence, which means it’s time for Mark and Neilan to start talking numbers. Specifically, player numbers. We’re talking about optimal player counts for games, whether games ever mean what they recommend on the box, and how well they scale to various player counts. Before we count to ten, we talk about Vindication, Royal Palace, Throw Throw Burrito, and Pipeline.
We just flew in from Indianapolis, and boy are our arms tired! From carrying all these games. But, more than the games, it’s the people you meet that make the memories, so we’re recovering from a very long weekend at Gen Con by telling some of our favourite little stories from the floor. Before we revisit our weekend, we talk about Tuki, God of War: The Card Game, and Wits & Wagers Vegas.
Gen Con 2019 is mere weeks away, and I bet you don’t even know what games are going to be there. Fear not, we’ve got you covered! We’re counting down our most anticipated games of the show, having meticulously studied BGG’s preview list, and looked at all the pretty pictures. Before we plan our trip, we talk about Cryptid, Two Rooms and a Boom, and Planet.
