Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 131: Gentes, BooBQ, and Jack Vasel Auction
We have a new contender for our game of the year, Gentes. This is one of those games we wish we had gotten to the table sooner than later and we are kicking ourselves because of it. And now, we will spread the word and the game is hard to find and we apologize for that. We are not apologizing for the game being hard to find, but for the fact we are bringing it to your attention so late. We have reached out to some publishers and told them they really need to take a look at this game and see about getting it picked up if they can. If you find it in YLGS, would not hesitate if you like those middle weight Euro games.
BooBQ was a big success with food, games and fellowship. So many games, we are not going to do anything more than just touch on them with high level discussions. And then there were the ones that we have yet to sit down and play together that we need to give a mention too. If you have Ascension on the iPad and want to play sometime, let me know. I am always looking to help someone’s win percentage.
We have added some updates to our Jack Vasel action, so be sure and take a look if interested. You can click here and get to the item. Regardless of what we send you, you know that you are helping a good cause and thank you so much for looking.
