In this podcast we have a look at Thunder Alley - a racing game put out by GMT games.

How does this game compare to Formula D? How much of a racing game does this actually feel like? Does it get your heart pumping and blood racing? In our previous discussion on Formula D the group was pretty much split, does that hold the same this time?

In this episode we discuss a game we feel flew under the radar called Firenze. What do we think of the game and why has it fallen under the radar? Should it stay under the radar?

We also have a quick look at two new games, XCOM and Roll for the Galaxy.

Do all four corners enjoy these games? Of course not, that would be too easy. Do any of us agree on any of the games?

The Four Corners of the Board take a look at the 3 current Discworld games : Ankh-Morpork, Guards! Guards! and The Witches.

Do any of them live up to their source material created by the late Terry Pratchett?

How do the four corners rank the 3 games?

Do you need to know the source material to enjoy the games?

Could there be a disagreement about one of the games?

In this episode we discuss Formula D. This game turned out to be very divisive between the corners - as it seems to divide gamers on the internet.

Both side try to convince the other that it is either a simple roll and move game akin to Sorry, or a much deeper game with strategy and resource management.

Who wins? Does anybody win?
