Ok, things are getting ridiculous. Yesterday, my left ear was clogged all day. I spent a lot of time trying to get it clear, which mostly just ended up giving me a headache and dizziness. But, I eventually got it. Just… what is up lately? Thankfully, it’s nothing huge, but there’s been about a dozen little things going on health-wise. Anyway, now that I can hear again, let’s get into some gaming podcasts. This week on the dial we have:
Pinkertons come to hassle Joe and Steve as they review Warhammer fest 2023
Thanks to everyone who voted for us for Best Podcast over at BGG. We really appreciate the nomination but unfortunately, we didn’t win. But that is okay. A big congrats to This Game is Broken for winning this year.
Earth from Inside Up found its way to the table and understand why people are talking about it. We love our engine builder games and this didn’t disappoint. Wingspan is a favorite of mine and Donna’s, so when I purchased up Asia, was hoping that the Duet mode would help us get it to the table more often. Why? Because, already said love the engine builders.
If there is a chance for you to get a play of In the Footsteps of Darwin, do it because you might be pleasantly surprised. This is one of those games that will fly under the radar and as a filler, it doesn’t disappoint.
Finally, Votes for Women will not only educate those that play it but might even help get people to try these types of card driven map games. It is fair to assume that these games look complicated, but this is a very solid introduction to that style. Who knows, after a few plays of this game, you might convince someone to give Twilight Struggle a chance.
In which we learn why a dragon gets so many actions.
Episode 272 starts out with an oldie but a goodie, Chris’ Movie review segment in which he kinda talks about the Tetris movie and trails off into something else. Then the gang gets busy with the games they’ve been playing including Yokohama, 51st State: Ultimate Edition, Core Worlds, Starship Captains, Revive and a feature review of Masters of the Universe Clash for Eternia from CMON. Then after Tony T goes ape with the best damn news segment in the third Galaxy, the Founders discuss what makes a Civilization game.
