Episode 69 – If You Like Dominion, Try…

This week, Anthony, Chris, and Daniel bring back one of our favorite features – If You Like, Try… – this time focusing on the classic deck building game, Dominion. We look at 9 games that bring similar elements to the table in terms of mechanics and theme, and we share some of our recent favorite play throughs, as well as a brand new segment from Anthony on solo gaming.

Shout it from the Tabletop

The Dice Tower Awards nominees were announced recently and the guys go through each and every one of them to discuss which games they think stand a chance and should win. You’ll have to wait until July to know the winners, but for now you can listen to our take on the potential winning games.

Acquisition Disorder Corner

This week we have three big games that are making us want to pull out our wallets. Anthony is eager to learn more about the Lewis & Clark dice game that is headed our way this fall, Chris looks at the first expansion for the Mensa 2015 Select winner, The Castles of Mad King Ludwig, and Daniel shares a new kickstarter campaign that he can’t help but back in Fall of Magic.

At the Table

Chris discusses a recent play through of Rumble in the House and Daniel shares his experience with The Agents, a game that he and Chris recently got to the table with a lot of the extra stuff that went out with the Kickstarter.

Solo Gaming

Anthony brings his first installment of a new solo gaming segment to the podcast this week, discussing four tips to help you get started as a solo board gamer.

It’s back! This time around, the guys look at games you should try if you’re a big fan of the deck building mechanics in Dominion. Check out the types of games that pull from deck building mechanics, hand management style play, and medieval settings.
