 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. Enjoy!
