Next up, we hit the acquisition disorders. Anthony talks about Mac Gerdts’ Transatlantic, and Chris touches on Tripods & Triplanes, the new elseworlds take on Wings of Glory from Ares Games.

At the table this week, the guys review The Masters’ Trials: Wrath of Magmaroth from AEG and Terraforming Mars: Venus Next from Stronghold Games.
