Episode 141 – Essen Hotness Review

We’re a little late this week due to some technical difficulties, but we have a bunch of new games to talk about, so the show must go on!

We may not have made it to Essen last week, but we sure watched the hot games as they hit the show. This week we have a rundown of which games were hottest and which ones we’re most excited to have in hand in the future.

First up is our question of the week, in which we asked you what games you want to see out of Fantasy Flight Interactive, the first video game studio from Asmodee NA.

We then dive into our acquisition disorders, including Altiplano and Imhotep: A New Dynasty. Anthony then reviews his recent plays of Anachrony and Chris shares his thoughts on the newest from Ryan Laukat, Klondike Rush.

For our feature, we look at some of the hottest games at Essen this year.
