12 | Dice Tower Con 2018 (Board gaming paradise!)

In this episode, we give a report from our first Dice Tower Con. In short, it was amazing. We met so many great people and played so many games!

On this show, we’ll discuss 15 games from the con that were new to us including Ticket to Ride: New York, Giant Azul, Fox in the Forest, Godfather: Corleone’s Empire, Clans of Caledonia, Coimbra, Fog of Love, Santorini, Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, Pitchcar, Imhotep, Reef, Machi Koro, Steamrollers, and Orléans.

We break these games down into five that we will definitely add to our collection, five that we need to think more about, and five that were a pass for us. Honestly, we left Dice Tower Con 2018 a week ago, but we’re still having withdrawals. Everything about it was so great – we highly recommend!

11 | NMBR 9 (THS GM S FN)

The best way to highlight how we feel about NMBR 9 is we decided to buy it about halfway through our first play with a friend’s copy. At least two other friends we have introduced it to have also gone out and purchased their own. So I guess don’t listen to this episode if you’re in the middle of a board game buying moratorium. But seriously, it’s easy to see what’s so appealing about NMBR 9 – it’s a fun puzzle with rules that can be explained in one minute and a play time of around 10 minutes. If you like Tetris, you’ll love this game. If you don’t like Tetris, you’ll still probably like this game. And even if you don’t… 10 minutes.

Also in this episode, we drink a tasty “big, bold Cabernet” (finally) and discuss some recent plays including Keyflower, Agricola, and Downforce.

Lastly, we’re heading to Dice Tower Con! If you’re there, look us up… we’d love to meet you and maybe play a game.
