This week we start out with a rather long off-topic section due a lot of feedback and many games Chris has bought or kickstarted.  We then talk about one of the new games we have Hero Realm – a fun, light, deck building game.

We eventually get to talking about point salad games where we define what we feel makes a game point salad, talk about some of or favorites, and give some general strategy tips when approaching a new point salad game.  Enjoy!

This week we first talk about our “game of today” Oceanos.  A fun little game with a lot of fish and personality.  We then go into our main topic and spend a fair amount of time talking about Battlestar Gallatica, Dead of Winter, and a few other hidden traitor games we like.

TGT 010: Halloween Games

TGT_FullArt

It’s a Halloween episode!  First we talk about our first game of Pandemic Legacy (spoiler, we really like it).  Then we take a brief look at horror games and ask the question, have we ever really been scared by a game?  About half way through, we go off board games and straight into creepy, scary stories.

Happy Halloween!
