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!

Episode 22: The one about impromptu space operas, house rules, and having direction

After a short hiatus, Episode 22 is upon us!

Jeff is in Canada, and we're recording remotely. In this episode, we talk about what we've been up to (Patchwork, Twilight Imperium, Codenames: Deep Undercover, and more), get into some news involving Werewords and Pandemic Legacy Season 2. We wrap things up by talking about games that give you good direction right from the start, how we might update Splendor (in the context of its new Expansion), and the power of house rules.
