Great Western Trail

This Holiday Filled* episode starts with some topically off-topic banter, before diving into Jeff’s Bloody Minute and some of the host’s newly played games, including the new Pandemic Iberia and Adrian’s KS copy of Druids and Zach finally regales us with his triumph in Legendary Encounters: Predator.  They then move on to a very light News and Kickstarter segment before diving into the game review of the week, Alexander Pfister’s Great Western Trail. Is this game’s path filled with strategy, cruelness, and cattle herding, or will it get lost in a stampede of mechanics? Find out! After the end of the episode is a First Impressions bonus discussion on Rob Daviau’s Seafall Legacy, talking about the prologue and first play of the game.
