Josh and Al wade through a veritable sea of consonants and apostrophes in the excellent deckbuilding/area control game Tyrants of the Underdark! After paying their respects to Lolth the Queen of Spiders, they head out to the auction only to find they forgot all their 5 dollar bills in the Reiner Knizia classic High Society.
In this episode Josh and Al brave not only the grim darkness of the 41st millennium but the endless hallways of timeless classic Space Hulk. Then they unwind with an all-out brawl between the Norse and Greek gods with the tremendously fun High Heavens.
Josh and Al are back for more Halloween gaming! This week we're taking a look at two games we may not have given a fair chance when they first came out. Up first is Dead of Winter, considered by some to be a modern classic and the ultimate zombie board game. Then we're taking a look at Escape From the Aliens From Outer Space, certainly one of the most unique games we've ever featured on the show.
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.
