Adam and Joe are BACK with another episode. This time around we are joined by our good friend Josh Hankin, organizer extraordinaire of the Ultimate Team Showdown (UTS). We open up with some standard banter, but quickly dive into talking about the UTS and why its an event every Malifaux player around the world should attend. It’s located just outside of Boston, MA, USA and occurs July 13 – 15th. We then move on to a discussion about the Official Wyrd Malifaux app and our feelings on it in tournament play. Finally Josh and Adam go over the 5 round tournament they attended in Laurel, Maryland called Capital City Meltdown (CCM) and their journey in attempting to obtain the coveted Iron Scorpius for its inaugural year. Sit back and enjoy!
After our report on Council of 4, we decided that the Scurry Reporters needed to come back and help us with our comments on CMON’s newest release Way of the Panda. Prepare yourself, their isn’t a Grumpy Tony in this review. I am sure you are surprised by this, but this one was well received by the group. But we need to caution you, don’t let the Pandas on the cover mislead you into thinking this is a cutesy game. This is a thinker and euro out the gate. You could have anything on this board and achieve the same result in my opinion. Hope to have this one back on the table soon.
Then it is time for High Society by Osprey Games and there are differing opinions on this one. Yes, this is a classic that is being remade, so obviously it has something going for it. But did it need an update. The artwork is incredible, compared to past remakes, and the production is top notch, so if you like bidding games, then this remake might be the thing for you.
Thanks for listening, giving comments over on the BGG guild and posting the reviews, we really do appreciate the support.
And a big congrats to Nate for the addition of the new little meeple in his life.
