The Jury is Still out on Editions
Our Hosts, trying out the new “established”
format, execute the prescribed Off-Topic Intro Banter, before
entertaining themselves with some recently played games. They bring
a couple news items to light, like Scythe’s Return policy, as well
as mention a few Kickstarters that could be interesting. Moving
into the Game of the Week, Zach gives us a Rules Breakdown of
Mansions of Madness 2nd edition and then the group follows up with
many, many opinions, including comparisons to first edition and the
price point . The review smoothly transitions into our topic of the
week, Game editions. Whether it's a rule shake-up, component
upgrade, or money grab, we discuss what we look for in new
editions. A listener email closes out the show.
