ENGN Episode 77: Fire and Ice Reviews! At the Gates of Loyang, Dungeon Alliance, Clans of Caledonia, and Darkest Night

Here at Every Night is Game Night, we try our best to cover a huge spectrum of games, ranging from the thematic, imaginative jaunts that Jason loves to the heavy strategy affairs enjoyed by Anthony. In this episode, we double down and give you two groups of games from either end of this spectrum – two economic games and two fantasy adventures.

First up, Anthony tells us about a somewhat lesser known yet still magnificent game from Uwe Rosenburg, At the Gates of Loyang (2:15). You will learn, among other things, why the game is beloved in the solo community. Then Jason hits you with a Kickstarter project that is just arriving to backers now, a dungeon crawler powered by deckbuilding called Dungeon Alliance (9:06). Anthony returns to talk about Clans of Caledonia (23:05), noting similarities and differences between this game and its spiritual older brother, Terra Mystica. Finally, Jason takes us home by talking about Darkest Night, Second Edition (32:25). As always, we try our best to give you honest, well thought-out opinions on the games we review. Hope you enjoy!
