Episode 199 – If You Like Talisman, Try…

This week’s episode is a fun one, if only because you can tell we are jazzed for next week and our big milestone at 200. In advance of that, we’re going back to a classic with our “if you like” series. This time around, focused on Talisman – the classic fantasy themed roll and move.

To kick things off, we asked the listeners our question of the week: “We’re in the home stretch for 2018 – what are some of your favorite games of the year?”

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony is psyched for a new (but limited) edition of Die Macher from Spielworxx and Chris is interested in the Recharged Edition of Power Grid coming in early 2019.

At the table this week, we’re reviewing Spell Smashers and Great Western Trail: Rails to the North.

And finally, for our feature, we look at six games you might like if you are a big fan of Talisman and looking for the next step, or something thematically adjacent.
