Episode 81 – If You Like 7 Wonders, Try… (Enter Our Contest!)

This week is a very special week for a few reasons. First, all four of us got together, not only to record the episode, but to hang out at GenCon! Join Anthony, Chris, Daniel, and Drew to discuss the 8 games you might like if you also like 7 Wonders. We’re also discussing some of our favorite play throughs for games pre-GenCon and we have a very special contest announcement coming up as part of the Dice Tower Network’s special CoolStuffInc contest series.

At the Table

This week, at the table, each of the guys has one game they’ve gotten to the table lately. Anthony discusses Glen More which he got a chance to play at DexCon with Dave and Chris, Chris discusses Viceroy which he recently got from his Kickstarter backing, Drew talks about Shadows over Camelot, and Daniel discusses Apocalypse World and Legend of the Elements.

Feature: If You Like 7 Wonders, Try…

This week on our special “if you like…” segment, we’re discussing 8 games you might like if you also like 7 Wonders, including games that utilize Tableau Building, Set Collection, Card Drafting, and Variable Player Powers as mechanics.

Final Round

For the final round this week, Drew asks which board game series has earned the right to churn out endless expansions (like Hollywood) that we’ll keep buying. Each of us shares one game that we would consider well worth expanding over and over again!
