Episode 46 – Smallworld

Happy Black Friday!…err, Thanksgiving! For a board gamer this is a very special time of year as all the best games go on sale and the Christmas presents start to flow. This week we’re looking at a classic favorite, Smallworld, but we’re also talking about some recent releases and all the games we’re excited to see go on sale very soon.

Shout it from the Tabletop

We have a super-sized news segment this week as Drew brings us everything hot and interesting from the world of tabletop gaming. We’ll be talking about the most recent acquisitions, sales, and big news from the hobby so make sure to listen in.

Acquisition Disorder Corner

You know we have some games on our acquisition disorder list this week! With our Black Friday final round later in the episode we talk about some of the new games we’re interested in seeing in our stockings this year.

At the Table

We get three new games to the table this week, including the newest expansion for Smash Up, Science Fiction Double Feature, Munchkin’s newest iteration in Munchkin Adventure Time, and an instant classic two player game, Jaipur. Listen to learn what we think of all three of these games.

Feature: Smallworld

This week we’re looking at one of the most popular and influential area control games of the last decade, and one of our favorite Days of Wonder games bar none – it’s our feature review of Smallworld. Listen to learn what the whole team thinks about this beautiful game, whether it’s worth playing and picking up, and how to get it to the table for your game group and your family.

Final Round: Black Friday

Black Friday is later this week and that means we want some deals! This week we talk about what games we’d pick up if they went on such a big sale that we couldn’t NOT buy them. Listen to our grail game list and which games we’re hoping to see on big discount this year.
