Remember Ridley Scott's Alien? A movie with the infamous scene where John Hurt convulses around until a creature bursts out of his chest, spraying the bewildered crew with gore as they look on in horror? Ravensburger has a new family board game based on that movie. Josh and Al talk about why Alien: Fate of the Nostromo works better than it should and what it means to really be a horror game.
WE'RE BACK AND FACE TO FACE.
To mark such a wonderful occasion, we're talking about two games that really remind us as to why we play games TOGETHER. We're talking about the excellent hidden traitor game The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 and the delightful "Super Flicking Game" Crash Octopus.
Josh and Al are finally back and are ready to talk about all the fun they had playing Dungeon Crawl Classics. Listen as they chat about this terrific RPG that pays homage to the early Dungeons & Dragons and Appendix N fantasy.

This week we're talking to Jim Felli, designer of games such as Shadows of Malice, Zimby Mojo, and the upcoming Cosmic Frog. We chat about the story of Cosmic Frog, his D&D background, how he comes up with his entirely unique games and we still somehow manage to fit Star Trek and scotch in there.

In an attempt to bring a quick end to the seemingly endless nightmare that is 2020, Josh declares that his Best Games of Year list is ready with Unmatched: Cobble and Fog and Pan Am. Meanwhile Al has revisted an old favorite with Railways of the World (aka Railroad Tycoon: The Board Game)
Josh and Al catch up on what they've been playing. Al has been digging into the world of Fowers Games (Fugitive, Sabotage, Burgle Brothers and Getaway Driver) while Josh has been feeling the Power of Love with both of the new Back To the Future games (Back In Time and Dice Through Time).
