This week, we kick things off with our question of the week, “What’s a game for which you’d like to see a more complex or harder version of?”

For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Gùgōng: Pànjūn, the first expansion for Gùgōng from Game Brewer and designer, Andreas Steding, and Chris looks at Kanban EV, the long awaited update to Kanban being released by Vital Lacerda and Eagle Gryphon Games

At the table this week, Anthony reviews Dark Angel, the sci-fi opus from the design team behind Troyes. Chris reviews Vinhos Deluxe, another Lacerda-Eagle/Gryphon production.

Finally, in our feature, we look at six games you might like if you want to like 18XX and just can’t get into it.
