Episode 141 — When Did You Stop Caring?

Episode 141 — When Did You Stop Caring?

It’s that time, and we roll the dice and lay out the games that have caught our attention in this year’s Essen preview show.

First we cover 10 games nominated by our guild using a complex and patented formula. Then we each take a shot at adding five games of our own discovery. Throw in some expansion discussion, and you have a show of partially educated guessing that is sure to wow even the most cynical gamer.
