The wives come back and bail us out once again. Vanessa discusses her thoughts on the re-release of the game Royal Visit. Donna shares her opinion on the tile laying game Sagani.

We also talk about the game Carpe Diem which is in its third release. Sometimes you just need a game that is simple to play and it’s easy to get to the table. Not saying that the game isn’t strategic or thought provoking it’s just nice to keep things simple on gameplay.

Marty also convinces me that I need spent more money over at Kickstarter by talking about Block and Key. While I am not much on spatial relations, this does sound like a very enjoyable and strategic game. Unfortunately I missed out on the play of Cloudage but Marty definitely shares his thoughts and how that game went.

Thanks for listening and see you in a couple of weeks.

The wives joined the show to help us review games. Sometime getting together is difficult, so we are glad that are good sports and help out when they can. What is interesting is that both games were tile laying games. We didn’t even plan that and it just happened. We discussed the new roll and write from Pinchback and Riddle and excited to see how it compares to Fleet: The Dice Game.

We also did a Flying Squirrels segment because we had some news and just didn’t want to go on and on about it. So, keep us to two minutes, that is a good way to eliminate the rambling.

Thanks for listening and be sure to vote in the 2021 Squirrely Awards

We are starting of the year strong because, Rob and Justin have returned to the show and they are telling us all about Return to Dark Tower. We got the lowdown on how to play, what it took to get the Tower running, and the support behind the game. Once we got that out of the way, we talked about Restoration Games’ plans for 2020 and how they plan to expand their current lineup.

But what would a board game podcast be without talking board games. We discuss games that are coming out in 2020 and games that have been out for a long time. One game, Irish Gauge is currently not available at Capstone to order, but be watching for it at your local game store. More importantly, they will be releasing a Kickstarter for the second game in the series soon.
