haspelknecht review

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 11/08/16

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty – Fall is in the air and we discuss Joshs’ charm!  We thank everyone who participated in our Halloween Story competition and lament the affects that the time change has on our bodies.  Josh reveals that he loves vegetarian calzones, but only if they’ll add bacon and other meat to them.  We have a LONG overdue visit from (potential) Intern Mobley, and discuss our excitement in regards to the upcoming BGGcon!  The Brawling Brothers Lowball Glasses are here and we are taking orders for BGGcon delivery (orders for shipment will start shortly after BGGcon).  We announce the first annual Brawling Brothers Gift Exchange and encourage you to participate.  Josh introduces his new “War Room Redeaux” intro and we reflect on games we played last year at this time (Mysterium, The Grizzled and Catacombs) and Josh reveals he is FLICK challenged. He needs your help – can anyone recommend a video to him on how to flick more effectively?!  We cover a SLEW of games in our NOW segment, including Knock Down Barns, Mechs vs Minions and Saloon Tycoon.  We dig in with our Haspelknecht review, and then wrap things up with an Academy Games Interview.  Uwe and Guter Eikert explain to us their philosophy for development, discuss how great Putin looks and answer the very LARGE question about the Mare Nostrum map design.
