In Episode 38, Craig digs through his stack and pulls out the last few games to be reviewed from 2015 in anticipation of his best of 2015 list debuting in January 2016. Starting off Craig gives a brief synopsis of Lifeline, a storytelling iOS and Android game and his adoration for the style. Second, he goes even further away from his normal reviews and gives an in-depth look at Secret Hitler, a hidden role game which is live on Kickstarter from the team the created Cards Against Humanity. Now on to the main event! This week, Craig reviews Bring out Yer Dead from Upper Deck Entertainment, an area-control, family style game, Elysium from Space Cowboy, a Greek mythology card drafting/selection game, and Cosmic Encounter, the age old classic game of conquest and OP aliens.
