Episode 329 – Best Games to Simply Teach Specific Mechanics

This week we’re the best games you can play to teach specific mechanics that are common in board games. Some are gateway games, some are not, but all are mechanically sound ways to teach someone how a certain type of game works.

  • Acquisition Disorders: Summoner Wars Second Edition, Now or Never
  • At the Table Reviews: Marvel Champions The Card Gamed: Galaxy’s Most Wanted, Slipways (Steam)
