Passing the 3/4 mark, Craig trudges through his quest to play 100 new games. Though the time frame has passed, the releases have not! In this episode, Craig covers La Granja and its multi-use card goodness, the epicness that is Ticket to Ride Rails and Sails, building a window pane in Sagrada, cube bag building and racing in Automobiles, and a whole swath of useless national knowledge in Bezier's America. Spoiler! I liked all of them!

In the newest section of Craig's attempt at 100 new games in 365 days, he delves back into games that he played nearly 5 months ago.. You know, like responsible podcasts do. Five new games, more winners than losers, all in all a decent batch. First up, it the Rochester draft train game, First Class, and auction/negotiation/set collection game Coloseum. The we have a point salad sandwich in a card game bun as Craig talks Camel Up Cards, Gold West from J. Alex Kevern, and finally Kingsport Festival the Card Game to wrap things up in a Cthulhu bun. Thans for tolerating the filler as we gear up for episode 77 soon!
