Episode Info

Episode Info:

Sorry for the back to back long episodes. However, we have a good reason. First, Sara Erickson from Renegade Game Studios dropped by and wanted to tell us about Mike Elliot’s new game, Terror Below, that is currently on Kickstarter. Don’t worry, it is funded but if you have any doubts on if you are backing or have questions, maybe Sara will have the answers you seek. She also was subjected to a Rank’em, something we haven’t had the opportunity to do in awhile.

Next comes to fairly lengthy discussion about two games that we go to the table. Raccoon Tycoon from Forbidden Games is a very enjoyable commodities game that is fast to teach and play. We also are finding that the various strategies work well so no set winning one and anytime we have an hour to get a game in, it is a good bet we will reach for it. If you want to try out a commodities game, we can’t recommend this enough. Components and art are top notch and the price at Miniature Market makes it tough not to get.

Beta Colony by Rio Grande Games was a different style of game that employed a dice mechanism similar to the one that is used in Lorenzo, but they took it one more step with the “rolldell” in the center of the board. Everyone is using the same dice pool, but how you use it in determining your actions is different between players. There is no competing for spaces,  so the game is more about how well you strategize during your turn.

Finally, Vanessa and Marty discuss Precious Cargo from Winning Moves Games. Maybe Marty will keep her doing these reviews and we can get more reviews to the Podcast.

The next episode is our annual award show and all the votes are in and the presenters are lined up. Hopefully there will be some surprises in 2019.
