This week is another board game. Turns out we like this one. Mini Rails is a train game. Buy stock. Place rails. Those are the only things you can do, but the strategy is deep. TMG, thanks to you for bringing this to the states.

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.

Yes he’s back back back… Matt’s back!! Haven’t you missed him? Either way, welcome to this episode. We’re discussing Tramways this time. It’s a network building and pick up and deliver game where we’re trying not to stress out some patients while moving them around the city on our networks. All in order to get happiness points. Most points wins! Negative noodle points to Matt for leaving in the first place.

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.
