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!

5 | Top Five Games We Discovered in 2017 (Actually, Top 6!)

It’s our first Listicle™ episode! Last year was a formative year of gaming for us; we played loads of new games and filled in our collection from the gaming gap brought on by graduate school and having babies. Even though it’s already April, we discuss our favorite “new to us” board games of 2017. It was hard to choose!
