Botch Games Podcast

In Episode 14, Craig and Dave gear up for another midnight recording in an attempt to live like children again. They had an amazing week of games and picked four to discuss this week: Diamonds from Stronghold Games, Yardmaster from Crash Games, Elder Sign from Fantasy Flight, and Scoville from Tasty Minstrel. Craig tracks down the etymological roots of the word Meeple in their "What the What" segment. In their Kickstarter discussion they look at the final numbers of Conan and talk about Epic Dice Tower Defense. They hype up X-men Mutant Revolution from Wizkids and GF9 and Uncharted Seas from Spartan Games. Lastly, they dive into their main topic which is going in depth with a few expansions which completely change the rules of a game, but not in a good way.
