Episode 43: Three's a Crowd (Roll & Writes)

Matt’s gone again. Disappointing it is.

Anyways, the three of us have fun without him and decide to take a look at some roll & writes that we’ve been enjoying. With the holiday season in full swing, we thought you guys might like to check out some games that are easier to learn, fast to play, and have very few things to argue over.

Matt surprised us by telling us he couldn’t record so we had to get a surprise for our listening audience! A surprise guest! Anyways… we played Coimbra this week. It’s a dice drafting and worker placement game. It’s like an upside down Porta Nigra. Get the dice you want and become a better person in the process. This game brings everybody together. Amen.
