Social Games: Hidden Identities!
With Adrian and Zach fresh from
another convention, our hosts start off the episodes with reactions
from Geekway to the West and all their recently played games. Jeff
got another chance to play Hit Z Road, Zach found an amazing game
in Flatline, and Adrian shipped some rice in Indonesia. Afterwards,
Jeff finally gets some more blood bowl goodness. In a short news
and Kickstarter section, the Spiel des Jahres 2017 nominations are
discussed, an update on the Games upgrades 3.0 KS, and Heroes of
Land, Air, and Sea is relaunched. Moving onto the review of the
week, our hosts talk about a trio of Social games with Hidden
Identities and deduction. These games include Ultimate Werewolf,
The Resistance, and Secret Hitler. Are these games able to hide
their wonderful goodness away from prying eyes, allowing them to be
ripe for consumption? Or do the flaws of social gaming cause them
to argue amongst themselves while you just find something better to
do? Find out inside! A BGG question is answered, and a special live
play of Win, Lose, or Banana is attempted. A Special announcement
closes out the show.
