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.
This episode is all about MONSTERS! First we talk about Monster Slaughter, a great big box of plastic that completely took us by surprise. Then we lift the veil on a game we've been designing, currently called "The Kaiju Project." Shameless self promotion ensues.
