Episode 27: The one about buying low, selling high, and getting lucky

Episode 27 is here!

In this one, we finally don't talk about Gen Con, as we go through some news for Stefan Feld's newest game (Merlin) and Cerebia: The Inside World; why we love the bidding in For Sale; how we would fix our criticisms of Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies; and luck vs. randomness in games.

Episode 24: The one about Gen Con 2017

With our 24th episode, we bring you our Top 10 games (in no particular order, of course!) that we're looking forward to at Gen Con 2017. These could be games we want to demo (or at least watch others play) or even pick up for purchase.

The list is split into two halves: The first half consists of games that we chose that did not overlap; and the second half are games that we both chose for our lists (and combine their discussions).

Enjoy!
