vast review

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 4/25/17

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com, Arcane Wonders and Meeple Realty – We PROMISE that your Iphone won’t self destruct while listening to this episode!  We discuss “SEXY” in board games, play some AWESOME listener voice mails and Brandon does his best Pocahontas as he sings “Just around the river bend”…. Sort of. We discuss the lack of spinners in boardgames and check in on Josh’s inability to math (1+2+1+1).  We review the completely asymmetric game “Vast: The Crystal Caverns” from Leder Games, and it’s a unique one!  We finish up with part two of our interview with Jamie of The Secret Cabal and Rodney of Watch it Played.  Don’t miss the part where Rodney gets the best of Josh, and laugh out loud at some of our outrageous questions during Rapid Fire!
