The recording of this episode ended up going on for a crazy long amount of time, so if something in the episode sounds a little bit weird, it’s probably because a 5 minute non-sequitur or tangent was edited out. With that out of the way, today’s category is games by designer Stefan Feld, and we’re looking at Trajan and Castles of Burgundy. Then in our Broader View, we talk about longevity of board games. What you won’t hear is our conversation about board game canon in the Broader View, but you will at some point in the future! [00:00:00] - Introduction [00:01:08] - Stefan Feld

So while editing this episode, we realized that we kept referring to the series of games that we talk about in this episode as the Arkham Files, when in actuality the name of the series is the Arkham Horror Files! Hopefully everyone will be able to forgive the faux pas. But in this episode, we’re talking about Eldritch Horror and Arkham Horror Third Edition. In our Broader View, we talk about what we like about games that share a universe, and what other games we would like to see expand their universe into other games. [00:00:00] - Introduction [00:01:03] - Arkham Horror Files

Though we were NEARLY distracted by new Song of Ice and Fire announcements the news from GenCon 2019 that has Craig most excited is Marvel Crisis Protocol. We discuss the new rules and why the game appeals.
