Ep 13 - At the Gates of Loyang, Feast for Odin & Village

Three farming games in one episode!  Oh, the excitement!  This time we discuss Feast for Odin (aka "Viking Feng Shui") and the recently republished classic At the Gates of Loyang, both by legendary designer Uwe Rosenberg.

Ep 10 - Terraforming Mars & Caverna

This episode we discuss Uwe Rosenberg's "Caverna" - a massive worker placement game about dwarven homesteaders, packed to the gills with wooden pieces.

We also walk you through one of the most talked about games of late 2016 - "Terraforming Mars".  It's a competitive game where each player is a different corporation trying to out-compete their opponents to terraform the planet as efficiently as possible.  You'll learn why it's awesome, and why you want an aftermarket overlay.
