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

Truly believe that the Lost Ruins of Arnak should be added to your shelves if you enjoy Clank. This game requires manipulating card combos that allow for you to gain resources that give the ability to generate end game victory points. You have to have a solid strategy as cards are revealed. You will need to make some hard decisions as you try and figure out what is the best payoff in the limited turns that you have in this game. Hope you get a chance to play this.

Tekhenu and Tawantinsuyu are games that will overwhelm at first and are not ones that after the first play you will feel like you played your best. These games are the ones that make you go back and wonder if you had just done this, would you have done better. If you enjoy games with dice that are meant to control decisions, then Tekhenu is something worth considering but be ready for a involved teach. Tawantinsuyu has a great player aid and while things are right before you, how it all comes together may take some time and multiple plays. Both games are a challenge and we have our favorite between the two, but that is just preference of the mechanics.

We got a fairly light show this time. Between broken fingers, house repairs, holidays, we haven’t had the time to sit down and get in some heavy gaming. But never fear, the banter is always here. Thanks to everyone who answered the survey and if you were lucky enough to win something, we will be contacting you in the coming weeks.

We did get to play The City from Tom Lehman and enjoyed the simplicity of the game. Sometimes you just need something that takes less than 30 minutes to play and this game does it.

Adam comes back on the show and helps Marty talk about Cities: Skylines and how it compares to the video game. So if you play the video game, maybe Adam can convince you you need the board game as well.

Finally, Marty goes solo and discusses a Stronghold game called Fire! This game is another quick to play and might be a time killer you need while waiting on a friend to show up and get your game night started.

Thanks for listening and please be sure and consider supporting BGG.
