Episode 29 — Whole Lotta Love

Episode 29 — Whole Lotta Love

CityofRemnants_0008It’s one episode before 30 (will there be a 30?) and we’ve decided to give some underplayed and undervalued games some love.

This is a long episode, which starts with a discussion about reviewing games and gives a little insight on how we approach this podcast.  For our discussion proper we each choose 3 games and reveal them in order.

Here’s a rough idea of when we actually get to the games:

Number 3 choices — @ 20 minute mark
Number 2 choices — @ 43 minute mark
Number 1 choices — @ 65 minute mark

Nations_0008You have a bazillion different cards that can hit the board and 8 rounds to create a civilization.  What will yours look like?  It’s episode 28 and we’re talking Nations!

And we . . . will . . . not . . . compare . . . aaahhhh!  Who’re we kiddin’, there’s no self control in this group.

Episode 27 — Terra Mystica and the Age Old Debate: Zeppelin vs. Metallica

Terra_Mystica_0001

This is a long one, but we start off having a really good time before we get down to the dissection. A really good time. Very amusing.

So once we get to our real topic, Eric rates Terra Mystica a 10, and he says it’s the top game he’s ever played. Can we talk him down from the mountain?

And because no one has ever wanted to know, we ask the question: Led Zeppelin or Metallica? Post your allegiance in our comments section here or on any of our BGG pages. 

Hint: Zep is the correct answer.

Madeira_0011On tour again, back in the power trio format! We ship ourselves to the Portuguese colony of Madeira, where we encounter wild grapes, free range wheat and unprocessed sugar. And lots of wood.

Yep, it’s a Euro game and we have punched the cardboard and pushed the wood.  Is Madeira the best of the 2013 Essen crop?  Listen on.
