We have a look at the newest expansion to a much beloved classic game - Ticket To Ride United Kingdom and Pennsylvania.

First we have a quick look at some games we've played recently :

Clacks

Archaeology

We then have a look back at Race for the Galaxy. Are we still split on the game.

Next comes a discussion on original Ticket to Ride to get a base feeling around the board before talking about the expansions.

We decided to have a look at a much loved game, Smallworld! First we talk about some of the games we've played recently, including Codenames (and does it work in a large group of non-gamers?) and Red Dragon Inn.

We then do a look back at Formula D - does it still hold up a year later?

The holiday's are all over, so it is back to normal! We start of the podcast by have a quick look at Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective and Lanterns.

Then we have a look back one year at Shadows Over Camelot.

Finally we get into discussion Elysium. As usual we have a look at theme and components. Then the different flavours of the god decks (and is there a difference?). Are the decks balanced? Do we feel the game is missing anything? What about strategies, is there more than one?

In the last regular episode of the year before our year end round up we have a look at an older game called Locomotive Werks. An economic train game, what could be the harm in that?

Terra 02:48

Ghostbusters 06:30

This episode we are looking at Principato. 

First we take a look back at one year ago and have a quick look at 7 Wonders (00:24) - how does it hold up? Does Gray still dislike it?

We then delve into Principato (05:45)

Is this a game with sparkling theme or just a themeless Euro?

The four corners have a look at components (those cards!) and theme in the game. We also talk about the main mechanism of the game - and can a game solely rely on one mechanism?

Are there mutliple paths to victory? Or is the game broken and it is a one trick pony?
