Race vs Roll for the Galaxy

  This episode begins with a slew of newly played games, including The Gallerist, Love Letter Premium, and Manhattan Project: Energy Empire. Jeff fills us in on new last game in The Bloody Minute, and finally Adrian chats about his latest trip to the Heavy Cardboard Gaming Meetup. In the news, a Terraforming Mars expansion is announcing, Ignacy Trzewcizek’s newest game First Martians is taking preorders, and a ton of games are getting reprinted. In Kickstarters, the only thing of note was Reiner Knizia’s newest game, Khan of Khans, finally appeared on the site. Moving on to the review section, our hosts do a double header, Race for the Galaxy and it’s newer, “hotter” cousin Roll for the galaxy. They do a brief rundown on both and then try and figure out if there is a place for both on your shelf.
