Joined by special guest, Matthew Jude, known from This Game is Broken and the Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast, we're talking cities. Not all games named after cities are created equal, and we're here to talk about the best of the lot. Also, we learn a little bit about Matthew's geography skills. Hope you enjoy!

This episode, we revisit some reviews we did two years ago! As they always say, hindsight is worth two in the bush before gift horses hatch. We want to start making this a recurring item, to revisit our review to games that we have previously done. How have our opinions changed in that time? Do we still own the game, or have we even played it since then? Also, we give some tips and pointers to newcomers to board game conventions, as we figured it could be useful. Enjoy!

Who doesn't love dinosaurs!  Well, Dennis Nedry probably. But for those of us not eaten by dilophosaurs, welcome to Duelosaur Island, a 2-player dino-splicing, park-building game. Also, we discuss that phrase that's been going around for a while, "That's an activity, not a game." and we ask, does it really matter? Tell us what you think.

We bring you our first impression of another game we got to try on the Dice Tower Cruise, Smartphone Inc. This game by Cosmodrome Games has people buzzing, but should you be interested in it at all? Also, does placing fruit in a brown paper bag really help ripen it? And how about player scalability? What makes a game work well at different player counts?  Come join us in Episode 102 to find out!

Teotihuacan is all the rage, and super hyped. But, is it all hot air, or is it really a good and beautiful game at a surprisingly affordable price?  Well, that may be obvious now. Why is it good?
