Episode 10 – Canterbury

Anthony is over the moon this week as his first foray into Kickstarter finally delivers and a copy of Canterbury from Andrew Parks shows up in the mail. The team gets together and sits down for a few plays of Canterbury, one of those plays with the designer himself.

We also get a chance to play through the newest set for Magic the Gathering, the mega-cool theming of Theros, as well as Hordes: High Command and Revolution! Finally, we get Bruges back to the table one more time and see how it stacks up after a few more plays.

At the Table

At the table this week, we bring in a diverse range of game, starting with the newest expansion for Magic the Gathering – Theros. The first of a new block releasing over the next year, this one’s theming with the classic mythological creatures is fantastic.

Next up is the newest in the High Command series of deck builders, this time for Hordes, followed by a game we all remember well from our first visits to Myriad – Revolution! Finally we sit down and play Bruges again, this time after a number of play throughs, to see how it stacks up a few weeks later.

Feature Review: Canterbury

After getting a chance to play a prototype at the grand opening of Myriad games a few months ago, Anthony hopped right on Kickstarter to back Canterbury and the team is psyched to get it to the table after the long wait.

Find out how the finished game stacks up and if the spreadsheet look plays through in the game itself. It’s an interesting game and a bit of a diversion from Andrew Parks’ other games – including the mega successful Attack Wing that is hitting tables everywhere. How does it play?
