Food Chain Magnate

Our hosts are once again joined by friend of the show, Wesley, and start out the episode talking about some crazy weather. In recently played games, Zach tried out Salt Lands, Wesley got introduced to Orleans, Jeff talks about Shadow War: Armageddon, and Adrian moved some stones in Imhotep. In News, more details have emerged about The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31, an expansion for Star Wars: rebellion is revealed, and Shut and and Sit Down got themselves a convention. In Kickstarters, Farsight gets you an option for minis, Terrain Crate can get you pimp out your D&D, and Card City XL has over 200 ways to play the game. Moving on to the review of the week, we get deep into Food Chain Magnate by Splotter Spellen. Does this cutthroat heavy economic game make enough of an impact to be a contender for one of the best heavy games ever? Or does its’ ruthlessness and long running time make it feel like a dull knife fight that just won’t end? Find out inside! We answer some questions from emails, Twitter, and BGG about Food Chain and then then have a comment from a previous episode to close out the show.
