The Halloween season is upon us and Josh and Al are already celebrating with a night of spooky games. Up first is Lifeform, a great big love letter to Alien and certainly one of the best games of 2019. Rounding out the night is Tiny Epic Zombies, a very small game that's not only one of the best zombie games we've seen in ages, it packs a ton of gameplay, variety and fun.
This week Josh and Al talk about Cowboy Bebop: Board Game Boogie, what makes it unique and how it compares to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the previous Jasco/Lynnvander Studios game. Then they set out for Amity Island to play Jaws from Ravensburger and Prospero Hall. You already know what sized boat you're gonna need.
See you space cowboy...
Cosmic Encounter is one of the greatest games ever published. That's it, that's the take away of this episode. But hey, if you want to hear why that is, how was WBC and GenCon, or what Al's favorite dinosaur is, give this episode a listen.
This week is all about the underdogs. We love finding fun, lesser known or misunderstood games! Join us in our first "Hidden Gems" episode. Up first is the underrated, overlooked slasher flick/hidden movement game Last Friday. Then we coat everything in a holographic sheen with Lazer Ryderz, the 1980s-video-rental-store-fever-dream-made-cardboard.
After a brief hiatus, Josh and Al are back and making up for lost time. First up is some talk about Betrayal Legacy but it's more a setup for our adventures in Dungeons & Dragons. We finish the night off with Magical Athlete and discuss why it's one of the most important games in our collections. It's "A Very Special Episode" if there ever was one!
All the woodland creatures come out to hear Josh and Al talk about Root, the enormously popular game of cute animals and brutal warfare. Afterwards they play Legendary: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and run through their favorites from the deckbuilding series.
