Sometime there is just no need to complicate things. Why should you try and jam everything you can into a game, especially when tried and true mechanics work. And that is what we have with the games in this episode
Cryo is a very easy to follow worker placement, engine building game that doesn’t try and get fancy with those mechanics. In order to come out on top, you need to be strategic and pay attention to what others are doing at the table. You need to be thinking about your moves in advance and maybe giving up some efficiencies in order to benefit in later rounds. And while theme doesn’t seem strong in this game, it is there and makes the most of the concept of trying to save your crew before they perish when the sun goes down. It is a fast playing worker placement game
Hadrian’s Wall is not going to be a game where there is going to be interaction between players. You will be doing your thing and it is hard to keep track of what other players are doing. It might be tough to figure out who is ahead until the final round. But there is a feeling of accomplishment when you are able to combo move after move knowing that you have your engine working.
Vanessa is back on to help Marty explain The Game Face to Face, so just like you, can’t wait to hear this discussion. I will admit that I never got into The Game the first time, but very intrigue about a two player version.
Thanks for listening and all that voted for us in the BGG Golden Geeks this year, we really do appreciate the support.
