To kick things off this week, we read answers to the question of the week: “What’s your favorite gaming experience (not necessarily favorite game, but best mechanic, event, or group dynamic created by a game)?”

For the acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at a game he’s sure he won’t love, but is still interested anyways because of the theme, Cities: Skyline. Chris looks at the third edition of Pret-a-Porter on Kickstarter right now from Portal Games.

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Crown of Emara, a Pegasus Spiel game that was hot at Essen last year and Chris reviews Jaws, the newest movie tie in game that is very much for fans of the property.

Finally, in our feature, we look at six games you might like if you’re a fan of Cosmic Encounter.
