Carla Kopp from Weird Giraffe Games joins us to talk about a few things including the upcoming Kickstarter, Dreams of Tomorrow. Then, she shares with us how to pitch your game design to a publisher!

The number of new games is too dang high! Or is it? We talk about the good and the bad of so many games. Then we answer the questions "Why do so many languages have such similar words for 'mom' and 'dad'?" Lastly, we review Prowler's Passage from Renegade Games and designed by J. Alex Kevern. Enjoy!
Black Orchestra is a cooperative game about the attempts to assassinate Hitler. It's definitely a unique theme, so we review how it plays.

Ahh, Mars, the Big Apple, as they call it. Can we turn it more into a mossy, moldy fruit ready for human life? This is going off the rails. Join us as we review Terraforming Mars, talk about different ways games can have variability in games, and talk about Gustav Holst's orchestral suite, the Planets!

Lastly, we review Reef by Emerson Matsuuchi and Next Move Games, a subdivisoin of Plan B Games.
Join us around the table and learn a little about the history of how Meeples, Miniatures, and Dice are made! Also, we talk about veggie puns, inspired by our local grocery store stickers that our 3 year-old gets, and then we review Gizmos, by Phil Walker-Harding! Enjoy!
