November 1, 2020

00:00 - An intensely heated debate: is a Twix a biscuit or a chocolate bar?

07:53 - Tapestry: Plans and Ploys continues to build upon the foundations of the lean(ish) civilization-creating original, and also continues Stonemaier Games’ tradition of featuring beautiful components.

21:07 - Some grumps bang on about how they don’t like Halloween, and an alternative is discussed: Falloween.

31:08 - The Three Stages of Boardgaming, solitaire games, and David Parlett’s Penguin-related money-making schemes.

35:30 - Coiledspring and Gamewright’s Metro X gives us flashbacks to the London Underground and mastering a tube map. Plus: very good nibs.

42:19 - Super-Skill Pinball: 4-Cade is from Wizkids and Geoffrey Engelstein (the Ludology podcast, Gametek, Pit Crew etc). It’s “giddy fun” and, we think, perhaps the perfect solo game.

All that, and a spooky podcast pitch, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).
