April 11, 2018

Episode 158 Joe’s Top Ten
From the man who can’t even seem to get self-deprecation right comes a list of his ten favorite games. Don’t hold it against the games; they did nothing to deserve being associated with such infamy. They’re the real victims here. Also, the audience.

Trent- Agricola, Master of Britain
Joe- quick update on Dominant Species
TC- Exit Pharohs Tomb & Arkham LCG update
Andy- 1862 Thoughts after a few plays. Also, get it on GMT p500

Hype
Trent- L5R: Elemental Cycle
Joe- Fireball Island ALL IN KS!!!
TC- L5R 6x6 wallet apocalypse take 2
Andy- The Estates
