Bit of a long episode this time due to the number of games covered and ten minutes of talking about food. At least it isn’t lawnmowers this time.

Tapestry gets the Scurry treatment and luckily we had Nate and Mark keeping us in check. Not sure if there is anything new that you haven’t already heard from others, but we had to play this beautiful game. This is one of those games that I want another chance at with the same civilization just to see if I can find a pattern and a winning strategy. I can see where this might be a legacy game for some from the standpoint that they just want to get good at all the civilizations in the game.

At the time of the recording, I had not gotten to play Gates of Delirium, but I have since. Marty is right, this is a fast pace game where you need to pay attention to what is on the table and going on around you with the other players. It is a fun game where the final outcome might surprise you. It did me.

Bloom Town and Dizzle provided a pleasant surprise to us both. Before you discount Dizzle as another Roll and Write, you need to give it a try because there is some strategy that will surprise. Bloom Town is the same way with the strategy, but there is the potential for hate drafting in the game. So what seems to be a light game suddenly becomes one of hard choices and sometimes mean decisions. Bloom Town is a Walmart exclusive.

War of the Worlds is brought to you by Marty and Adam and it is always fun to hear Adam needle his father about things. This is a two player game only so keep that in mind as you hear how Marty lost both times.

Annihilageddon is a very adult content game. You have been warned not only on the box, but by us.

Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy.

Cloudspire hit the table and about broke it. This game from Chip Theory Games did not disappoint us but it isn’t for the weak when it comes to understanding the nuisances. The core mechanics are easy, but the individual factions are what shine. These individual factions will need practice and patience in order to get good at this game and players will need to be on equal footing. It is one of these games that players that have a constant group will experience the biggest joy because it becomes a chess moves between players. Lot to explore in this game and if you are looking for a new lifestyle game, this might be the one for you.

Pret-a-Porter surprised us for it was not the game we thought it was going to be. We thought it was going to be a crunchy euro that comes down to who managed their enterprise the best. But this game brought out the cutthroat in us and we were doing our best to ensure the other player’s plans were messed up each round. Maybe we made too much out of the backstabbing that was going on, but every round, we heard someone complain about how their whole turn just got messed up.

The card mechanic in Foothills is one of our favorite mechanics and so glad we got this to the table as well. Hard decisions needed to be made and resource management was tight at times. Really enjoy two player games that are quick on the table and Foothills did not disappoint.

Lots of card games were covered in this episode and that includes one of the biggest that will be coming out in the fourth quarter, Marvel Champions from Fantasy Flight Games. Marvel Champions is a coop living card game that pits players against a single villian who has a scheme that will create havoc for the hereos, or just simply rob a bank. A villian has to eat. If you enjoy Living Card Games, get your preorder in. One thing we state on the podcast that needs to be written is that the core set has everything you need to get you playing, unlike the previous LCGs where you had to buy additional copies of the core box to get additional copies of certain cards. Thank you Fantasy Flight for coming to your senses and including all we need in the core set.

War Chest Nobility expansion got an early play. Why is that game so enjoyable to play? Maybe it is the speed of play, the depth of strategy, or the constant battle of the hard decisions that you have to make. If War Chest is making it to the table, then go ahead and plan on this expansion because it gives you more decision points during your play.
