We've made it to Tuesday. The work week is well underway. Time to hunker down and finally finish of the first month of the year. Has it taken an eternity for anyone else? To think that 2019 was still less than a month ago seems wild. It seems centuries. Anyway, I'm excited because yesterday I had a hot sauce so good, it transported me to a different part of my life for a moment. I'm going to have more for lunch today. In the meantime, to speed things along to that point, I'm going to listen to some gaming podcasts.
This week on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 84: Top 10 Most Anticipated RPGs of 2020 with Shane Stacks; Game Classy Episode 203: We lost the first 15 minutes; Nerdherders Episode 35 (126): Year End Review for 2019; The Secret Cabal Episode 199: Flotilla, Nemesis, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time and The Death of the Acquisition Disorder; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 190: Sorcerer City, Masters of Renaissance Lorenzo il Magnifico: The Card Game, Fox in the Forest Duet; and Tabletop Talk Episode 58: Marvel Crisis Protocol: In-Depth Look.

The Founders are back for a another game packed episode starting out with Chris and his grasshopper taco and a bunch of games we've been playing including; Taverns of Tiefenthal, Wavelength, Cryptid, Blitzkrieg!, The Grizzled, Crystal Palace, Caverna: The Cave Farmers and Dream Phone. Then after we review Flotilla and look back at Nemesis and Professor Eveil, Tony T, as always, gives us the greatest tabletop gaming news in the entire world of gaming while the rest of us quack in the background. Then we wrap up the episode with discussion about the state of the industry, the state of came consumers and ask the question, is the Acquisition Disorder a thing of the past.
If you have been listening to the show for some time, and the survey says about 50% of you have been, then you know the admiration we have for the game Lorenzo il Magnifico. When we got Masters of Renaissance Lorenzo il Magnifico: The Card Game, we were concerned that they took the game we loved and over simplified it with cards. We are very happy that we were wrong. This game is simple to play, simple to learn, but lots of fun and full of strategy.
Then came a game called Sorcerer City in our weekly play. Not being a big fan of racing the clock and playing Tetris with tiles, was pleasantly surprised with this game. So surprised, Sorcerer City ended up on the table again the following week. Hope you get the opportunity to play this game, the pressure of the timer makes it fun, but then your decisions after it is over will determine how well you do in the game.
Join Ray and his guests from 3 Men and a War Game as they discuss everything MCP. They talk about what they love and what they don't love about the game. They share their hopes for the future and give their wish list for future releases.
