Episode 184 – 5 Years and Counting!

Wait, what? Five years already? Dang, time flies.

That’s what this episode is all about as we take a look back at the last year of the podcast with our favorites from 2017-18, but also at the last five years and what we’ve been able to accomplish in that time. Join us for four new reviews, a bevy of good games we’re excited to play soon, and some of our favorite stuff from recent episodes.

To kick things off, we asked the listeners our question of the week, “What already published Kickstarted game would you like to see have a NEW Kickstarter campaign with reprints, expansions, and new content?”

Next up, for our acquisition disorders, we looked at a pair of upcoming Essen releases, starting with Anthony’s interest in Cuzco, a new spin on the Mask Trilogy classic – Java. Chris then looks at Caverna: The Forgotten Folk, the new races and player powers coming to Caverna this fall. 

For our At The Table reviews this week, we have four games, including Swordcrafters and Rise of Tribes from Anthony and Mastery of the Galaxy and Trickerion from Chris. 

Finally, we look at our favorite stuff from the last year, including our top acquisition disorders, at the table reviews, and features from the last 50 episodes.

    Agree with you on the love for Anachrony. After watching some reviews I thought it looked pretty good so bought the base game. Tried playing a few times solo as a 2 player game with the different expansions. I loved it, played a couple times with others and have enjoyed it. I then bought the exosuit expansion and can’t wait to play the game more. Even though takes a long time to play it more than almost any other game the time just goes right by. I love it.

      Awesome, glad you like it too. there was so much buzz but I feel like it died down fast and now it’s getting overlooked a lot. Such a good game!
