The Mile High Game Guys are three friends in the Denver area with a passion for playing and talking about boardgames! We focus on giving in-depth news and reviews in a casual and approachable manner. Thanks for giving us a listen!


Nov 2, 2016

Today our hosts are once again joined by Guest Host Megan, and the episode begins with more plays of Terraforming Mars and how they finally found time to try out Mech vs Minions and the Pillars of Eternity Game. Some more developments in active kickstarters are mentioned, including Bears vs Babies Stretch goals, and how Tiny Epic Quest’s tiny box will be stuffed to the brim with content. In recent news, Jeff talks about Hero realms and some new Agricola mini expansions are announced. In the review section, our hosts figure out if Isle of Skye is as great as the Germans think it is. After the review, the discussion of Theme vs. Mechanics begins. What is more important in a game? What gets you interested? What keeps you coming back? Can one exist without the other? Answers to these and more! Ending the episode is a response from our first contest winner, MHGGhater!
