See where we place it amongst deck builders and how worthy an addition it is to your collection as a two-player game. We also get into a few new games including our descent into Crokinole obsession!

This episode has us taking an introspectve look at our backing habits on Kickstarter. We look at which types of games backed have stood the test of time, what we personally use the crowd funding service for (and how that has evolved over these past 3 years), and how that lines up with what Kickstarter set out to be in the world of board games. We're also giving first impressions of Key to the City: London and Tramways!
