Welcome to Tuesday, everyone. I hope your week is going better than mine. Yesterday, while washing dishes, I cut my right thumb fairly badly. With the options of a couple stitches or medical superglue, being a gamer, I went for the superglue. Unfortunately, it means I'm typing all this now without the use of my right thumb. It's... not fun. But the news must go on! And at the moment, that means getting you some podcasts to listen to. This week on the dial we have:
Love getting the Empires of the North to the table and when a new expansion comes out, get very excited. Egyptians is the newest expansion and it feels different from all the rest. I also enjoy it when an expansion just flows and both these factions seemed to be easy to play to us. The engine you needed to build was right there and easy to grasp. If you enjoy Empires of the North, then this might be a must add
Two players games that involve strategic war battles are always something I enjoy, but the time to set up and play is sometimes a roadblock to getting a game to the table. But 300: Earth & Water is small footprint game that is fast to play and easy to understand. Based on the battle that most of us know from the movie 300, this game is around can the Greeks hold off the advance of the Persians over five rounds. If they do, they win. If the Persians can beat down the defenses, then they win.
Thanks for listening we do appreciate it
