Legacy games? Deck building games? Who would dare combine them? Who would dare review them? We will, of course! Aeon's End Legacy is the 3rd installment of a popular deck building game franchise, and the first one to feature a cohesive campaign throughout. We'll tell you what we think. Keep an eye out over the next week as we will also release a spoiler-filled review as well.
What do Elder Sign, Unfair, World's Fair 1893, Adrenaline, and Kingdomino all have in common? We reviewed them all 2 years ago. So in today's hindisght, we look back at our thoughts on them now. Want to see how games hold up 2 years after review? You're in the right place!
Is it true that we've got Danny from Danny and Derek do Board Games on the show? You bet your bippy! Some games have awesome components that are unlike anything else you've seen that are worth checking out. We each recommend our Top 5.

Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is like chocolate in peanut butter. Except it's tile drafting in a bizarre castle. It works. Check out our thoughts on this interesting hybrid game, generously provided by Stonemaier Games. We also talk about what makes some campaign games click while others don't, and we also learn a little bit about the history of Mr. Crapper ...a real person.
Hong Kong has suffered a blackout, and the power hasn't come back on yet. It's been days, maybe weeks, so it's time to step in and help your fellow man. And maybe make some money and prestige along the way. We review Blackout Hong Kong by Alexander Pfister, and discuss our experience at Dice Tower West along with some highlight games. The con was great, and looking forward to next years already!
