Episode 6 — Caverna: You’ll Take What Your Given and Like It

Episode 6 — Caverna: You’ll Take What Your Given and Like It

CavernaYou run a family of discs.

You send your farmer discs out to the fields to plant crops and tend to the sheep, and you send your interior designer discs into the cave to create the dwelling of your dreams.  You can send your more nomadic discs off on wild adventures.  Some discs will sneak off and then bring back baby discs, which gives you more discs to do your bidding.

In the end, if your discs do your bidding well, you reap the rewards.  Oh, and there are dogs too.  And they chase your sheep.  And donkeys.  Yes donkeys.

It has come to my attention that the term discs should read dwarves; however, I am too lazy to go back and change it, so you can use your imagination to correct the text above, you know, like when sending your discs on an adventure.

P.S.  We really do like this game.  I think.

Do you like deck builders or point salad games?

We take a look at two of this year’s filler games that have a little more fullness than a filler.  As the argument develops as to which of these games is deserving of your time and money, we also try to determine whether or not each of these games should be classified as filler.

We might even come up with a new term while we’re at it.

Episode 1 — Francis Drake and the Opening Day Jitters

FDrakeIn our first episode we discuss the merits of the Peter Hawes designed Francis Drake. We take a look at the stellar components and discuss the trend toward higher quality swag in current board games. Has anyone else noticed that the price of admission has also increased?

We stumble around a bit as well, being that it’s our first cast and all.
