Episode 167 – Blood Rage vs. Rising Sun

It’s been a little while since the last versus episode we did, and what better time to bring it back than to compare the mega behemoth games from Eric Lang, Blood Rage and Rising Sun?

To kick things off this episode, we share the answers from listeners for our question of the week, “What’s a game you can win while ignoring key components of the game?”

For our acquisition disorders, Anthony looks at Treasure Island and Chris looks at the Alhambra Designer’s Edition.

At the Table this week, Anthony reviews City of Iron Second Edition and Chris looks at Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight.

Finally, we delve into Rising Sun and Blood Rage to answer the question of whether you can own both, and under what circumstances you’d consider one over the other.
