Episode 130 – Must Buy Games: CMON

This week, Chris and Anthony sit down to discuss CMON’s must buy games – the five titles you should check out from their catalog.

In addition, we have the question of the week, this week asking what factors people consider when choosing a game for their collection. Our Acquisition Disorders include Isle of Skye: Journeyman and Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and at the table this week, Anthony reviews First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet while Chris looks at two Dr. Who games: Dr. Who The Card Game & Dr. Who The Card Game Time Clash Starter Set.

Finally, in our feature, we look at five must buy games from CMON across different categories and for different play styles.

Question of the Week: 3:27 ​

Acquisition Disorders: 6:35

At the Table: 11:14

Must Buy Games: CMON: 26:05

(Thanks Matt for your awesome bit of code to help determine when to buy a game):

IF newgame = SoloMode
THEN
IF variability of
SoloMode
=> 5 plays
THEN $$$
ELSE
GOTO
FamilyPlay

FamilyPlay
IF newgame =
FamilyFuntime
THEN $$$
ELSE
GOTO shun

shun
DO troll internet denouncing merits of newgame in an attempt to justify decision

IF decision =
regret
THEN $$$ anyways.
