The hosts unload a vast treasure of new played games into the opening banter, including Terraforming Mars, Quadropolis, and Twilight Struggle. Then, instead of a regular news and Kickstarter, they discuss Essen Spiel 2016 and some of the games they are looking forward to the most, lack of info be damned. In the review section, they discuss another Essen release, The Networks, and how great it is the run your own TV Network. The discussion of the day is Luck vs Skill. What is better? Can games be fun without a combination of both? Which is more important? These questions and more are answered to the best of our (limited) ability.The episode closes out with a reminder of our first ever Giveaway.
