Back from vacation and not well rested, but ready to talk about games once again. Marty tells me all about some games he played while I was away on vacation and the great reactions he got when he put them on the table. All them sounded fun, but one stood out that grabbed my attention, Dark Domains. It is a worker placement that provides a twist where you must be careful because the more evil you become, the more the heroes are out to get you. After I got to play, this game is an onion with tons of layers waiting to be discovered.

As a special treat, my wife, Donna, joins me to talk about Stronghold’s game Brikks. We played this a bunch while on vacation. You can tell we are a bit sleep deprived because we go on and on during this segment. But as a bonus, Donna ranks her favorite Roll and Writes that are in the house. Hope you appreciate this and let us know so I can have her come back on for a future review.

Finally, the episode has information on how to get our first ever Promo card. This is being provided by our buddy Ignacy. He has designed a card that you can use in Portal’s upcoming game Empires of the North. We are honored that he did this and we really do appreciate it.

Enjoy the episode and hope to see some of you at Gen Con.
