In this episode of The Long View, I'm pleased to be joined by returning guest Jim Shaw as we discuss the groundbreaking game of Dominion. What makes this such a popular game? Is it a gateway game, or a gamer's game? How does it stack up to the classics? What are the basic strategies of the game? What ripples have been made by this boulder thrown in the pond?

In this episode of The Long View, I'm joined by Jim Shaw as we discuss the game Summoner Wars. Is this the perfect, light tactical wargame? Does the theme shine through, or is it lost in abstraction? Are the decisions in the game meaningful or obvious? All of these questions and more are addressed as Jim and I sit down to discuss this popular game.

The Long View   The Long View is a podcast that is designed to provide a critical and in depth look at a specific game each episode. The games we feature in our discussions will be more than just a few months old! Many will have been released in the past one to three years. New enough to not be old, but not old enough to have already been designated as classic or clunker.
